Albany Serves Up A Shutout

By Ken Peacock

The Admirals ran into a brick wall Friday Night in Albany. The Devils rookie goaltender, Keith Kinkaid, stopped all of the 34 shots that Norfolk fired at him and went home with a 1-0 shutout. Norfolk is now 3-2 on the current road trip and move on to Bridgeport to take on the Sound Tigers.

Kinkaid and Admirals goaltender Dustin Tokarski fought a hard battle. Both teams went scoreless through the first and second periods. Tokarski stopped 14 shots and Kinkaid turned aside 20 in this goaltender duel. Five minutes into the third period Devils defenseman, Matt Taormina, figured Tokarski out. Taormina sent a shot through traffic and past a screened Tokarski for the lone goal of the night.

The Admirals offense would put an additional 14 shots on Kinkaid and pulled Tokarski in the final minute, but Kinkaid was having none of this. Keith Kinkaid earned his first professional shutout stopping all 34 Admiral shots. This was quiet night on the penalty front. Norfolk did not have a power play, and Albany went 0-1.

Game six of Norfolk’s seven-game road trip continues tonight night at the Webster Bank Arena against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The game starts at 7:00 p.m. The Admirals finish of the road trip Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in Providence against the Bruins.

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......
