Two Nights, Two Victories – Admirals Over Bridgeport 4-1

From the Norfolk Admirals:

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Frederik Andersen made 32 saves and ten different players recorded points as the Norfolk Admirals (9-11-0-0) topped the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (10-9-0-1), 4-1, on Sunday evening at Webster Bank Arena. The Admirals won both games of their two-game road trip after topping the Bears last night in Hershey, 5-1. The Admirals and Bears will meet on Thursday night at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., in the Washington AHL Showcase, presented by GEICO.

Norfolk captain Nate Guenin had a goal and an assist while Peter Holland netted two assists for the Admirals. Norfolk also received goals from John Mitchell, Jordan Hendry and Kyle Palmieri.

Andersen improved his record to 6-5-0 with his second consecutive win. He finished the weekend with 61 saves on 63 shots.

Norfolk’s penalty kill was perfect for the second consecutive game, stopping all six of Bridgeport’s chances while killing all 15 opponent power plays over the weekend.

Brock Nelson netted the lone goal for the Sound Tigers while goaltender Anders Nilsson stopped 28 of 32 shots in defeat.

The Admirals built a 2-0 lead after one period. Mitchell opened scoring with his sixth goal of the season at 8:35, giving him goals in three consecutive games. Guenin netted his second goal of the season at 17:40.

The teams exchanged goals in the second stanza. Hendry netted his first goal of the season while the teams skated at three-on-three at 6:55. Nelson responded at 15:42 to get the Sound Tigers on the board.

Palmieri closed out scoring with a power play goal 1:19 into the final frame.

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......
