The South Carolina Stingrays are in the midst of a terrible long streak. Since having their three game series against the Wheeling Nailers that was scheduled for Jan. 22-24, the Stingrays had lost nine straight.

Down 4-0 at Florida, the Stingrays needed a miracle to stop from losing their 10th in a row.

South Carolina scored three straight to cut the lead down to one. They pulled the goalie for an extra attacker, and the Everblades scored the empty netter to sink the Rays comeback.

So it seemed.

The Stingrays then scored two goals in the games final nine seconds to force overtime.

In overtime, the Stingrays killed off a penalty and the teams headed to a shootout. In the end, the Everblades were the only ones to score in the shootout. Since the postponement, the Stingrays are 2-7-5. However, thanks to a hot start, the Stingrays are just outside a playoff spot. With 47 games left, there is still a lot of hockey left to play, and even despite not getting two points, this could serve as a turning point in the season.
