Labrie Scores OT Winner, Admirals Lead The Series 3-0

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Pierre-Cedric Labrie scored on a breakaway 1:37 into overtime and Dustin Tokarski stopped all 25 shots he faced as the Norfolk Admirals claimed Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals over the St. John’s IceCaps, 1-0, on Monday night at the Mile One Centre. The Admirals lead the best-of-seven series, three games to none, with Game 4 set for tomorrow night at 6:00 p.m. EDT from Mile One Centre.

Tokarski (7-2) earned his first shutout of the playoffs to out-duel St. John’s netminder Eddie Pasquale (7-7), who turned aside 26 of 27 shots. Neither team scored on the power play, as the Admirals went 0-for-7 and the IceCaps were 0-for-6.

The only goal of the game came early in overtime. Labrie took possession of the puck after a neutral zone turnover and broke in alone on Pasquale. The second-year Admiral sent a wrist shot from between the hashmarks in the slot that eluded Pasquale’s glove for his fourth goal of the playoffs.

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......
