Admirals 5 IceCaps 2

By Ken Peacock

The first game of the Admirals pre-season is in the books. The Admirals dominated the first two periods. Pierre-Cedric Labrie, Philip-Michael Devos , Mike Vernace, and Jeff Dimmen scoring for the Admirals, the last two were on the power play. Dustin Tokarski played a period and a half stopping all six shots he faced. Pat Nagle entered the net for the Admirals. Radko Gudas and Pierre-Cedric Labrie both got a chance to relieve some stress, Pierre taking on one time Admiral in the stands, Taylor Vichorek.

The second period looked like it was going to be another easy period for the Admirals, but the IceCaps had other thought. St John’s scored back to back goals from Bretton Cameron and Jason King. The IceCaps were on a roll and out shooting the Admirals, but they took a penalty that would quickly lead to a Admirals power play. Matt Fornataro promptly made the score 5-2 with a third power play goal and sealing up the win for the Admirals.

Norfolk played a great game with 5 different scorers and going 3 for 6 on the power play. The three stars of the night from the IceCaps broadcast team were #1 Ondrej Palat (Norfolk), #2 Jason King (St John’s), and #3 Jeff Dimmen (Norfolk). Coach Cooper still has a lot of things to consider before the Admirals come back to Norfolk. Setting the lines for the next two games and getting a good look at everyone, but he will still have at least 3 more players to consider when Tampa Bay makes their final cuts.

Hang on Norfolk and pencil in Oct 7 on your calendar. It’s time for Norfolk Admirals Hockey.

Norfolk Admirals – Armed & Ready




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......
