The Admirals took their first weekend series from the Checkers. They are sitting on top of the league for goals scored, but are also a less flattering third place for goals allowed. Carter Ashton was named the AHL Reebok player of the week. Ashton had a great weekend offensively as he managed to hit the back of the net three times.
That was last weekend and this week the Hershey Bears come to town for a Friday night game before both teams head on back to Hershey for the Bears home opener. While I am not one to miss many games, I must take a long earned vacation to Florida, and on Monday Oct 17 I will at least get one game in. Tampa Bay will be taking on the Florida Panthers for their home opener. Hopefully I will get a look at former Admirals Blair Jones and Matias Ritola.
Back to Hershey….Hershey, like the Admirals, had a good weekend as well. Two games played and wins against the Binghamton Senators,and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Bears have a some familiar names on the Bear Roster are Keith Aucoin, Kyle Greentree, and former Admiral Danny Richmond.
I wish the Admirals good luck this weekend and plan on being back to Scope for the last game of the Binghamton Senators weekend series the following week.
