Bobkov Comes Up Big as Admirals Shut Out IceCaps

From The Norfolk Admirals:

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Rookie goaltender Igor Bobkov stopped all 38 shots he faced for his first career AHL shutout as the Norfolk Admirals (5-1-0-0) defeated the St. John’s IceCaps (4-4-0-0), 2-0, on Sunday afternoon at MileOne Centre. Next up for the Admirals is a pair of games against the Binghamton Senators at Scope on Friday and Saturday nights.

Patrick Maroon and John Mitchell scored for the Admirals, who were out-shot, 38-27. Norfolk killed all six St. John’s power plays in the game.

All of the game’s scoring came in the second period. The Admirals took a 1-0 lead midway through the stanza. Defenseman Ryan Parent, who had signed with the Admirals earlier in the week and was making his Norfolk debut, sent a shot from the left faceoff circle that IceCaps goaltender Eddie Pasquale stopped. However, Maroon found the rebound and put it past the goaltender at 11:33 for his fourth goal of the season.

Norfolk’s lead doubled in the waning moments of the second stanza as a St. John’s power play expired. Troy Bodie collected the puck as it ricocheted off the post behind Bobkov from an IceCaps power play shot. He then sent a long pass to Mitchell as he exited the penalty box. Mitchell broke in on Pasquale with a partial breakaway through the right circle. He sent a shot from the slot between Pasquale’s right leg and blocker at 19:49 for his third goal of the season.

Bobkov (3-0-0) shut the door the rest of the way, stopping 18 shots in the third period alone to preserve the victory.

Pasquale (25 saves, 27 shots) took the loss.

Norfolk was 0-for-2 on the power play. St. John’s was 0-for-6.

The Admirals return to Scope on Friday and Saturday nights to square off against the Binghamton Senators. The puck drops on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday at 7:15 p.m.

About these ads

I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
