Admirals Drop Series Opener To Adirondack

NORFOLK, VA - The Norfolk Admirals, proud ECHL affiliates of the Carolina Hurricanes, fell to the Adirondack Thunder, 4-2 on Wednesday night. 

GAME STORY

After an evenly matched first period that saw the Admirals put 13 shots on goal, the game was tied at zero heading into the first intermission. The Admirals quickly broke the tie in the second intermission getting the first goal of the night from Tanner Schachle. Adirondack quickly retook momentum scoring two goals in 27 seconds from Nick Rivera and Patrick Grasso to take the lead. Callum Fryer committed a hooking penalty that set up an Admirals penalty kill in the second period. Todd Burgess found Brett Ouderkirk who registered his first goal as an Admiral and the first short-handed goal of the year. It was the first short-handed goal for Norfolk since April 3rd, dating back to last year.  The Admirals would go on the penalty kill with 10 seconds to go in the period and Adirondack capitalized, getting a goal from Grant Jozefek with just five seconds to go. The Thunder scored the only goal of the third period and would go on to win, 4-2.
