NORFOLK – Hampus Lindholm, Peter Holland and Kyle Palmieri provided the offense and Frederik Andersen’s 40 saves provided the defense as the Norfolk Admirals (6-2-0-0) beat the Binghamton Senators (4-4-1-0), 4-2, tonight at Norfolk Scope Arena.

The Admirals came out firing all the guns as they tied a franchise record for shots with a 26-shot first period, and out-shooting the Senators, 26-8, Hampus Lindholm got things rolling as he picked off a pass at the and skated towards in from the left point towards the goal. He beat Senators goalie Ben Bishop with a wrist shot to the glove side at 9:43 of the first period. Peter Holland would double the lead off of a Kyle Palmieri shot that took a weird bounce off of the glass at 16:52. The puck bounced off of the glass behind the net and landed in front of Holland who shot the puck past Bishop for a 2-0 lead.

The Senators got on to the scoreboard with a Andre Benoit goal at the 3:10 mark of the second period to cut the Norfolk lead to one goal. Peter Holland and Luca Caputi worked together to restore the 2 goal lead at 6:25 of the second period. Caputi was behind the Senators net and fed a nice pass to Holland at the top of the Binghamton crease. Holland would one time the pass into the back of the net to give the Ad’s a 3-1 lead going into the locker room.

Kyle Palmieri got into the scoring at 6:07 of the third with the help of Holland. Holland broke up a Senators breakout attempt when he intercepted the puck. He intercepted the puck at the right point and passed to Palmieri in the left faceoff circle. Palmieri one-timed the pass past Bishop’s glove for Norfolk’s 4th and final goal of the night. The Senators would add a Patrick Wiercioch goal at 8:26 of the third period, but that was as close as they would get.

Ben Bishop (40 saves, 44 shots) took the loss and Frederick Andersen (40 Saves,42 shots) took the win. Andersen played a great game and might come out as the go to goaltender in the Admirals rotation. Igor Bobkov could learn a few things from Andersen if he intends to hold the starting position.

Next up for the Admirals is a a four-game road trip beginning Wednesday morning against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. This is a rare day game for the Admirals as the puck drops at 11:00 a.m. They will then have 3 games in 3 nights with Binghamton, Springfield, and Albany starting on Saturday. The Admirals return to Scope to host the Springfield Falcons on Friday and Saturday, November 16 and 17.

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......
