GLADS WEEKLY: Third period explosion on Sunday, two home games ahead for Glads

DULUTH, Ga. – The Gladiators played just one game last week on Sunday against the Solar Bears and claimed a 6-3 win thanks to a flurry of third-period goals. This week's docket is booked with two home dates and one road contest for the Gladiators. Get primed for the upcoming slate with the latest installment of Glads Weekly!

A Look Ahead: Tuesday night brings the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (2-1-1-0) to Gas South Arena for a 7:00 PM puck drop. Nikita Pavlychev, Chase Zieky, Anthony Beauchamp, and Ben Freemen all lead Greenville offensively with five points each. Last season, the Glads dominated the season series with the Swamp Rabbits and posted a 11-4-0-0 record against Greenville through 15 encounters. TICKETS

The Orlando Solar Bears (1-2-1-0) make their first trip to Duluth on Friday. The Glads downed the Bears 6-3 on Sunday, and later this week will face Orlando for the second of seven matchups. Atlanta will don specialty Blue's Clues jerseys on Friday for "Blue's Big City Adventure". TICKETS

On Saturday, the Gladiators hit the road to take on the South Carolina Stingrays (3-1-0-0) for the first time this season. The Stingrays have picked up three wins in their first four games of the season much in part to Carter Turnbull's seven points (4G-3A).

Lightning Strikes in Third Period on Sunday: The Gladiators used a barrage of goals in the third period of Sunday's contest against the Solar Bears to claim a 6-3 victory. After both teams traded leads, Atlanta surged ahead in the middle of the third frame with a pair of power-play goals followed by an even-strength tally. Mike Pelech, Derek Topatigh, and Gabe Guertler poured in three goals in a span of 57 seconds to give Atlanta a firm grip on the game.
