Stingrays Weekly Report - February 22
Another Rivalry Series in Florida On Tap This Week

After claiming two points last weekend from a series in Jacksonville, the South Carolina Stingrays are preparing for three more games in the Sunshine State this week against the Florida Everblades. The pair of overtime losses kept SC in front of the Icemen in the Eastern Conference standings and allowed them to move into a tie for fourth place with the Orlando Solar Bears, each holding a points percentage at .522.

The Stingrays won their first meeting with the Blades inside Hertz Arena on Jan. 29 but have come up short to their southern rivals in each of the past four matchups ever since. Florida is in second place in the standings with a record of 19-5-0-1 and a points percentage at .780. South Carolina will be looking to get out to a fast start in the three road games this week, as the team holds an 8-1-3 record this season when scoring the first goal.

MALATESTA TAKES OVER
With South Carolina trailing in the third period Saturday night, defender Zach Malatesta willed the team back into the contest by scoring twice in the final 11 minutes of the game. The blueliner has been on a roll as of late, currently on a 5-game point streak. In 12 games this season, Malatesta has posted 11 points (3g, 8a). Prior to Saturday’s two-goal performance, he had posted power play assists in four consecutive contests.

DESALVO STAYS HOT
Forward Dan DeSalvo had assists in both games over the weekend in Jacksonville, running his current point streak to five games during which he has scored seven points (2g, 5a) On Friday, DeSalvo assisted on Cole Ully’s third period power play goal. He then picked up two helpers Saturday, factoring in on both of Zach Malatesta’s third period tallies. The Bowling Green State University graduate has totaled 10 points in his last eight outings and his 15 total points (6g, 9a) are tied for the most on the team so far this season.

ULLY RETURNS WITH A BANG
After missing eight games with an injury, forward Cole Ully scored both of South Carolina’s goals Friday night in his return to the lineup. The Calgary, Alberta native followed that up with a primary assist on Zach Malatesta’s second goal of the third period Saturday. Ully has now posted multi-point games in four of his last seven contests and leads the team with seven tallies this season. Overall, the attacker has 14 points (7g, 7a) in 13 contests this year along with a +5 rating.
