Admirals Update: 3-3-12


The night started off with some fireworks during pre game warm ups, Greg Amadio and Labrie met up at center ice and began talking. Quickly two more Falcons joined at center with Radko Gudas and Eric Neilson joining the verbal sparring until captain Mike Angelidis breaks up the meeting. A few minutes pass by and Amadio comes back to center with Labrie, the two tried to fight the night before, and both teams quickly gather. A Falcon starts slashing peoples wrists and all hell breaks loose. Labrie and Amadio are the only ones who really fight but Angelidis, Gudas, Neilson all grab someone with gloves dropped. No referees ever come out and the captains eventually break up the scrum. Amadio ends up with his jersey ruined and a beat red face. Suspensions can result from this scrum and AHL officials were taking notes.

The Admirals dominated the game beginning once the puck dropped, out shooting the Falcons early and getting a Cory Conacher goal 7:04 into the period, Cory's 31st goal of the year keeping him second in the league. Ouellet followed up his outstanding friday night performance just over a minute later with his 14th goal of the year. At this point in the game Norfolk was out shooting Springfield 8-0. The Falcons get their first power play of the game and Tyler Johnson turns on his after burner and gets a short hand breakaway goal, at one point it was him versus 2 defenders, and scores his second short handed goal of the year. Admirals finish the period up 11-5 on shots and 0/2 on the power play.

The second period started off with a goalie change for Springfield giving their back up goalie his first playing time of the season, from the CHL with an injury to Legace. Dainton allowed 8 goals in 4 periods of play. The Falcons responded well to the change, outshooting the Admirals 6-1 halfway through the period. Both teams had 2 power plays, neither scored, but the second man advantage for Springfield was a 5 minute major resulting from Gudas kneeing a player, it also an auto game misconduct. Period ends with Ads up 15-11 on shots and 0/4 on the PP.

The 5 minute major carried over to the third period and the Admirals had an outstanding kill, outshooting the Falcons and Johnson had a bid for his second short handed breakaway goal of the night. The Falcons finally get onto the score sheet 8:15 into the period after the Ads iced the puck and were dead tired. Around 2 minutes after the goal the Admirals head to the power play and Richard Panik scores for his 13th on the season. Less than a minute later Panik sets up Johnson for his second goal of the night. The Falcons had no answer the rest of the game as Panik kept trying to set people up the rest of the period.

The Admirals get their 12th win in a row and are off til next weekend when they have yet another 3 games in 2.5 night road trip. Barberio had an assist adding to his Admirals franchise record for points by a defenseman in one season(51). Tokarski had a big night getting his 8th win in a row, a franchise record, 27th on the season ties a personal best of his and his 75th win in Norfolk which ties him with Michael Leighton for most career wins for the AHL Admirals.
