AHL Calder Cup Final Game 2 preview / open thread: Toronto at Norfolk

So , last night, the Admirals took Game 1 in a 3-1 gong show that saw the Ads kill 10 power play opportunities for the Toronto Marlies. The boys looked dominant the whole time, but taking twice as many penalties as your opponent is kind of pushing your luck.

Press on the game:

AHL Playoff Game Night: 6-1-12 Marlies at Admirals Game One | Bolt Prospects
BoltProspects warns the Marlies not to think that they can intimidate the Admirals into losing focus. "They don't care if the Marlies have Don Cherry's endorsement, and while they do have a few guys who are small speedsters with skill, it would be incredibly foolish to think they can't handle their business when called upon. "

The Toronto media did not like seeing Norfolk dominate play the whole game. They figure there must be something wring with their team. Though, a word to Marlies coach Dallas Eakins: you lost by two goals, not just the empty netter.
