Following All-Star Break, Norfolk Sets Sail For Three Games in Three Nights on the Road

NORFOLK, Va. – Coming on the heels of an exciting week of hockey at Scope and the all-star break, the Norfolk Admirals will drop the puck on a three-game road trip tomorrow night.

Last Tuesday night, the Admirals dropped a 4-2 decision to the Charlotte Checkers despite goals by Philip-Michael Devos and Eric Neilson. On Friday night in front of 7,414 fans at Scope, Carter Ashton notched his 17th goal of the season and Pierre-Cedric Labrie scored the game-winning goal in the third period, as the Admirals defeated the Hershey Bears, 2-1. The following night in front of a sellout crowd, the Admirals scored a goal in each of the first two periods, but could not answer a third period goal by the Bears as they fell, 3-2.

The Admirals return to action with three games in three nights, beginning tomorrow night in Glens Falls, New York, for a meeting with the Adirondack Phantoms. Norfolk will then travel to Springfield, Massachusetts, for matchups on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon as they faceoff against the Falcons.

After 45 games, the Norfolk Admirals (26-16-1-2, 55 points) stand two points behind the second-place Hershey Bears (25-12-4-3, 57 points, 44 games) and three points behind the division-leading Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (26-13-2-4, 58 points, 45 games) for first place. The Admirals are 11 points ahead of the Syracuse Crunch (19-17-3-3, 44 points, 42 games) for fourth place and hold a 13-point advantage over the fifth place Binghamton Senators (20-24-1-1, 42 points, 46 games).
