Admirals Complete Improbable Comeback, Defeat Nailers 6-5

GAME STORY

In a follow-up to Friday's offensive showcase, both teams excelled offensively again this on Saturday. Wheeling started the scoring less than five minutes into the game on a goal from David Drake. Danny Katic was able to tie the game up with 3:10 remaining in the period, scoring on a power play. Wheeling came to life offensively in the second period, scoring three more goals. Cedric Derussieuax scored just 36 seconds into the period to regain the lead for Wheeling. Brian Bowen was able to tie the game up again at two halfway through the period before Wheeling retook the lead 44 seconds later. Tyler Drevitch scored his second of the game with 2:12 left in the frame to give Wheeling a 4-2 lead heading into the final period. The Nailers scored once more just shy of the halfway mark in the period to take a three-goal lead. Norfolk responded in a timely manner, on a goal by Todd Burgess just 67 seconds later. Bowen scored once more with 3:57 to play, and then Darren McCormick scored with 3:21 to play to record the equalizer. Just 24 seconds later, Burgess came up clutch and found the back of the net once again to give the Admirals the lead for good.
