Admirals Fall To The Phantoms 3-1

By Ken Peacock

With the All-Star break over, Norfolk finds itself on the road for three games in three nights. Friday night the Norfolk Admirals (26-17-1-2) fell to former Admiral Michael Leighton and the Adirondack Phantoms (22-21-1-1), 3-1, at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Norfolk will now move on to Springfield for a pair of games against the Springfield Falcons tomorrow night and Sunday.

Adirondack opened up the scoring at 12:27 into the first period. Tye McKinn of the Phantoms sent a shot past Admiral goalie, Jaroslav Janus, to give the Phantoms the 1-0 lead. Norfolk was held scoreless in the first.

The Phantoms would make it 2-0 just 20 seconds into the second. Matthew Ford fired a shot past Jaroslav Janus. Norfolk would score its first and only goal of the night at 9:58 of the second period. Carter Ashton received a pass from Tyler Johnson and put the puck past Michael Leighton for his 18th goal of the season. The Phantoms would put the nail in the coffin eight minutes later with a goal from Tye McGinn. The Phantoms held Norfolk scoreless and went home with the 3-1 victory.

Jaroslav Janus (8-8-2) stopped 31 of 34 shots for the loss while Michael Leighton (15-16-0) stopped 27 of 28 shots for the win. Both teams were 0-for-1 on the power play.

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......

  1. Apart from just buying wholesale items, you can
    also plan to set up a wholesale clothing business.
    You should not dread buying wholesale ladies’ dresses online. If you’re thinking
    of doing this as a full or part time job, there are some things
    you should consider first.
