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.
