Admirals Continue To Struggle Losing to Adirondack 2-1

From The Norfolk Admirals:

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – Peter Holland scored his team-leading ninth goal of the season, but the Norfolk Admirals (7-9-0-0) were unable to come back from a two-goal deficit as they fell to the Adirondack Phantoms (8-8-0-0), 2-1, on Friday night at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The Admirals wrap up their brief two-game road trip tomorrow night from Hartford against the Connecticut Whale at 7:00 p.m.

Goaltender Frederik Andersen (4-4-0) stopped 29 of 31 shots in the defeat. Norfolk has lost four consecutive games.

After a scoreless opening period, Adirondack quickly took a 2-0 lead in the first three minutes of the second stanza. Sean Couturier gave Adirondack a 1-0 lead just 1:23 into the second period with a one-timer from the right circle.

Just 49 seconds later, the lead doubled as Rob Bordson faked a slap shot from the right circle, skated into the slot and sent a wrist shot past Andersen at 2:02.

The Admirals cut their deficit to one goal with only 31 seconds remaining in the second period. Devante Smith-Pelly sent a pass from near the goalmouth to Holland in the right circle. Holland scored his team-leading ninth goal of the season to make the score 2-1 heading into the third period.

The Admirals out-shot the Phantoms, 12-5, in the final frame but were unable to find the equalizer. Munroe ended the game with 25 saves on 26 shots.

Both teams were 1-for-4 on the power play.

The Admirals wrap up their brief two-game road trip tomorrow night from Hartford, CT, against the Connecticut Whale at 7:00 p.m. Tune in at 7:00 p.m. to 102.1-FM, 1490-AM, or

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......
