Syracuse Put The Crunch On Norfolk, Sink Admirals 6-3

By Ken Peacock

The Syracuse Crunch (18-15-3-2) scored six unanswered goals in the first two periods to beat the Norfolk Admirals (24-14-1-2), 6-3 last night at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday night. The Admirals hope to bounce back tonight against the Connecticut Whale and return to Norfolk for three games against the Charlotte Checkers and Hershey Bears.

The Post Standard

The Crunch jumped out to an early lead in the first period. Patrick Maroon scored twice on Admirals netminder, Jaroslav Janus. Maxime Macenauer finished the scoring to give the Crunch a 3-0 lead at the end of one period.  Dan Sexton opened up the scoring in the second. Maxime Macenauer added another and Patrick Maroon would complete the hat trick to put Syracuse ahead 6-0 at the end of two periods.

The Post Standard

The Admirals would open up the third period with Dustin Tokarski in net. Mike Angelidis would score two times and Richard Panik would score once on Crunch goaltender Marco Cousineau. The Crunch would hang on for the 6-3 win and send Norfolk to the showers with their heads hung low.

Janus stopped 17 of 23 shots, Tokarski stopped all 3 shots faced and Cousineau stopped 30 of 33 shots for the win. Norfolk was 0-for-5 on the power play while Syracuse was 1-for-6.

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......
