Admirals Take Game 3 And The Pre-Season Series 2-1

By Ken Peacock

The Norfolk Admirals are getting ready to close out training camp and say goodbye to Canada on a good note. An early Sunday showdown at the Mile One Center in St John’s was the scene for the third and final preseason match between the Admirals and the IceCaps.

The Admirals were the first to strike with a Michel Ouellet goal in the opening minutes of the first period. Riley Armstrong answered back four minutes later for St Johns with a wraparound gettin by Dustin Tokarski. Both teams would go to the locker rooms tied at a goal each. Defense shut down both team until late in the third when former Admiral, Jason Jaffray put the puck in the net for an IceCap goal. The Admirals were presented with a power play opportunity and Jeff Dimmen answered the call putting a wrist shot past Peter Mannino. With the IceCaps committing penalties in the third it was time for Norfolk’s power play to step back into action. Alexandre Picard and Carter Ashton notched power play markers to put the Admirals ahead. Tyler Johnson would seal the scoring with and empty net goal to finish the game.  Admirals goalie, Dustin Tokasrski, stopped 30 of 32 shots for the win and the power play units wen 3 for 5. 5-2 was the final for not only this match, but the first two matches as well.

Norfolk will now wrap things up in Canada and make their way back to the friebdly confines of the Norfolk Scope. There will be some roster adjustments from both Tampa and Norfolk prior to the start of the NHL and AHL openers this Friday.

We want a packed house this weekend. Don’t wait until Friday to get your tickets at the box office. Avoid the line and get online. Visit Tickemaster.com, any of the Ticketmaster retail outlets, and the Scope Box Office.

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......
