Game Day: Admirals Vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

By Ken Peacock

The Norfolk Admirals (7W-3L-0OTL-1SOL)  move on to Bridgeport after suffering a 1-0 loss in Albany Friday night. Bridgeport currently set in the cellar of the Northeast Division. A spot that was previously occupied by the Albany Devils the night before. The Sound Tigers (5W-4L-1OTL-0SOL)  are on a 2 game winning streak and have been idle since their win against the Connecticut Whale on a rare 11a.m. game Wednesday.

The Sound Tigers are led by Justin DiBenedetto (8G 3A +1), Tim Wallace (3G 6A -1), and Casey Cizkas (2G 7A +5). Their defense is led by former Ty Wishart (1G 4A +2). Wishart, a former Admiral, played most of last season with the Islanders in the NHL. In goal the Sound Tigers have Kevin Poulin (2W 3L 4.29GAA)  and Anders Nilsson (3W 1L 2.98GAA).

Norfolk is led in scoring by Trevor Smith with five goals, 9 assists and an impressive plus ten rating. Carter Ashton, the Reebok/AHL Rookie of the Month for October, follows closely behind with nine goals, four assists, and an even +/- rating. Mark Barberio (2G 9A 11Pts +5 +/-) and Mike Vernace (2G 5A 7Pts -1 +/-) lead the Admirals defense. Scott Jackson has had two shots on goal in the three games since returning to the Admirals.  Dustin Tokarski is 3-3 in goal for the season, while Jaroslav Janus is 4-0-1. Missing from the lineup is Mattais Ritola. Ritola recently cleared waivers, but the Lightning has chosen to keep him in Tampa Bay for the time being. 

The Admirals finish out the weekend with a 4pm game against Providence on Sunday.

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......
