Weekend Game Day(s): Admirals Vs. St. John’s IceCaps

By Ken Peacock

The Norfolk Admirals make their second visit to St. John’s this season. The Admirals rarely travel by air, but today was an exception. The Admirals returned home after a 5-3 victory on Sunday against the WB/S Penguins. A few practices, community work with Habitat for Humanity, and even hold a hockey clinic occupied the team during the week. Now it’s back on the road for a 2 game series in St. John’s against the Atlantic division IceCaps.

St. John’s (11-2-3-0) lead the AHL in scoring with 62 goals and 42 against. They are currently riding a 6-0-2-0 streak. The Winnipeg Jet farm team has been at the mercy of the parent club lately due to numerous player injuries. The IceCaps captain is former Norfolk Admiral, Jason Jaffray.  The IceCaps are led by Marco Rosa (4G 10A +6) and Spencer Machacek (2G 11A +/-0). Jason Desantis (3G 5A +8) leads the defense. Peter Mannino (3-2-0 2.58GAA) and David Aebischer (2W 3L 3.49GAA) split time in the net for the IceCaps.

The Admirals (9-6-0-1) are currently in second place in the East Divison behind the Penguins. After taking a few games off, the offense lit the lamp 5 times against the Penguins on Sunday.  Norfolk is led by Cory Conacher (8G 10A -2), Trevor Smith (6G 12A +11), and Carter Ashton (11G 6A +3).The Admirals defense is led by Mark Barberio (3G 12A +9). Dustin Tokarski (5-4 2.65GAA) and Jaroslv Janus (4-2-1 2.96GAA) have split the time between the posts for the Admirals.

The Admirals return to Norfolk for a Wednesday night match with the Charlotte Checkers and finish the week at home against the Providence Bruins on Friday and Saturday night.

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......
