About Tonight’s Game: Tonight’s South Division match-up features the Jacksonville Icemen and the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. The Icemen have won four straight games and have collected points in their last five games (4-0-1-0). Jacksonville is coming off a successful road weekend that featured a pair of wins at Norfolk and a 6-3 victory over the first place South Carolina Stingrays.  The plethora of points last week propelled the Icemen to within eight points of the fourth and final playoff position in the South Division currently held by Orlando. Meanwhile, Greenville sits in third, holding a ten-point lead over Jacksonville.  However, the Icemen will still have six games in hand over Greenville following tonight’s game.
