Game Day: Admirals Vs. Adirondack Phantoms


By Ken Peacock

The Admirals play their second game of a seven game road trip against the Adirondack Phantoms in Glenn Falls, NY tonight at 7 pm. The Philadelphia Flyers affiliate are coming off of a 5 game road trip and are currently sitting on top of the AHL’s Northeast Division Standings with 10 points tied with the Connecticut Whale. Adirondack enters Wednesday as just one of five teams with at least 10 points. The Phantoms are one point back of the Hershey Bears (11 pts) for the league’s best record. The other three teams with at least 10 points are the St. John’s IceCaps (11 pts), Houston Aeros (10 pts) and Connecticut Whale (10 pts).

The Admirals come in to Glens Falls on a two-game losing streak. The Admirals have the league’s highest-scoring offense with 31 goals. They are two points behind Hershey and St. John’s for the AHL’s top overall record. Norfolk is in second place in the East Division and fifth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 4-2-1 and nine points.

The Admirals are led in scoring by Carter Ashton, who leads all AHL rookies with six goals and 10 points. Ashton was the named the AHL’s Player of the Week for the first week of the season. Cory Conacher is the second leading scorer with nine points. TylerJohnson has six points. All three are in the top 10 in AHL rookie scoring.

The defense is led by Mike Barberio and Radko Gudas. Barberio (1g, 6a) leads AHL defensemen in scoring. Scott Jackson has recently been returned to the Admirals and may get a shot at the lineup shortly. In goal the Admirals are anchored by Dustin Tokarski (2-2-0) and Jaroslav Janus (2-0-1).

The Admirals finish out the week with a game against the Providence Bruins on Friday and a Saturday game against the Syracuse Crunch.

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......
