Opening Night – Admirals Vs. Checkers – Fri Oct 7, 2011

By Ken Peacock

Well here we are….FINALLY! The Admirals open up the season at the Norfolk Scope tonight 7:20pm. Festivities start at 5pm outside with live entertainment. Gates will open at 6pm. Get your Tickets ahead of time and avoid the line at the box office that is guaranteed 100% to be there. Don’t be one of those people that miss out on the entire first period waiting in line.

The Admirals re-visit their rivalry with the Checkers and kick off the Geico Challenge Cup series. Last year the Checker got the best of the Admirals with 7 wins to the Admirals 5, but tonight we start with a clean slate. The winner of the best of 12 games this season will take the Geico Challenge. Some notable players on the Checkers are Former Admirals Chris Durno, and Matieu Roy. Notably missing from the Checkers is goalie Justin Pogge.

Meet the Admirals: Five questions, five players to watch


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......
