MAN- Dravecky, Purcell

Radek Smolenak and Brandon Segal were the game's first and third stars, respectively.

That's a tough one. A win in this game and the Ads would've had an opportunity to get to .500 tomorrow night, and they had a 2 goal lead and momentum heading into the final frame. Ordinarily you feel great if you can get a point on the road, but this was worse than a sister kisser. And, it's hard to get too upset about Ramo's shootout futility considering how poorly the Admirals' shooters have faired on breakaways in the extra extra session this season too. Tonight, Wyatt Smith, Blair Jones, Paul Szczechura, and Smolenak all got blanked in the shootout.

AHL Game Night 11/8: Ice Hogs at Admirals

Momentum.

Karri Ramo allowed just 1 goal on 21 shots for the win.

Rockford found out they were Marked for Death, as Brandon Segal was named the game's first star. Jason Ward was the game's second star after setting up third star Zenon Konopka's game winning goal.

Steve Downie was +1 with 9 penalty minutes in his Norfolk debut, including a fighting major with an unsportsmanlike conduct chaser.

This team started clicking this weekend thanks in part to Zenon Konopka snapping an eight game goalless drought to chip in goals in each of the games against Rockford. Norfolk is now 5 points back of fourth place Philadelphia in the division, and they will start a road trip through the Atlantic Division starting Tuesday against Lowell before back-to-back games against Manchester on Friday and Saturday. Both teams are under-.500 and give an opportunity for the 3-6-2 Admirals to start to climb the ladder.

Portland found out that Brandon Segal is Hard to Kill, as he finished the game's second star.

This was a tough one. The Admirals battled out of a two goal hole to tie the game early in the final period, only to see their opportunities dissolve in the final 15 minutes of the game. The team is still struggling to come together defensively and they really only have one line going at this time. It hasn't helped matters that the Ads have had a bruising schedule early one. Portland, for instance, came to town in first place in their division. Darren Rumble has to hope his defense comes around with more experience, and he has to try to find a line combination other than Smolenak/Szczechura/Segal that can put the puck in the net consistently. It wouldn't hurt if one of the goaltenders would step up and steal a couple of games to help the club get their feet underneath them.

Brandon Segal was Above the Law, as he was named the game's second star. The Bears outshot the Admirals 26-25 in the game, which is a fair sight more managable differential than last night, or any of the parent club's games thus far.

Lightning Send Six to Admirals Camp

Eric Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune is reporting that the Tampa Bay Lightning have made six training camp cuts following Saturday night's first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. All six are being sent the Norfolk Admirals training camp and will join the current roster which starts on Monday. The six players include Lightning prospects Blair Jones, Brandon Segal, Chris Lawrence, and Andy Rogers. The remaining two cuts include free agent invitees Jamie Heward and Sean O'Connor.

Heward had previously said that he if he could not make an NHL roster, he would return to Europe instead of playing North American minor league hockey. It is unknown if Heward will report to the Admirals training camp.
