The Admirals play their third game in as many nights as Norfolk (16-9-0-1) visit the Hershey Bears (13-7-3-2). Norfolk brings a 1-1 record against the Bears on the season. After tonight’s game the Admirals will return home for a Friday night match with the same Hershey Bears.

Hershey has gone 6-3-0-1 over their last ten games and currently riding a 2 game losing streak. Hershey currently has the league’s most successful power-play, scoring 33 times on 111 opportunities and averaging two power play goals per game. They also have a successful penalty kill, going 107-for-125 overall and 50-for-56 on home ice. The Bears are led in scoring by Keith Aucoin (6G 33A +2) and Chris Bourque (12G 22A -1).  The Bears defense is led by Patrick McNeill (2G 13A -2). Bears goalies, Braden Holtby (7-6-1 2.57GAA) and Dany Sabourin (6-4-1 2.98GAA) share teh duties between the pipes.

The Admirals currently hold the top position in the East Division tied with  the WB/S Penguins and the Hershey Bears following closely behind. Norfolk is led by Trevor Smith (12G 19A +17) and rookie phenom, Cory Conacher (14G 14A +3).  Mark Barberio (3G 17A +14) continues to lead the Admirals defense. Dustin Tokarski (10-5-0 2.26GAA) has been hot as of late, with a 5 game winning streak. Jaroslav Janus (6-4-1 3.16GAA) took the 5-2 win last night in Binghamton.

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......
