AHL Game Night 11/7: Ice Hogs at Admirals
That, folks, is what this Admirals team is supposed to look like this season.
Karri Ramo stopped 32 of 34 shots for the win.
RFD Brent, (3) (Pelletier, Kontiola), 6:34 (PP)
NOR Kearns, (1) (Smaby, Boyle), 1:49
NOR Smolenak, (5) (Simek, Hutchinson), 13:58 (PP)
RFD Davis, (2) (Brent, Hambly), 16:07 (PP)
NOR Boyle, (1) (Kearns, Szczechura), 16:22
NOR Hutchinson, (1) (Smith, Heward), 12:44 (PP)
NOR Konopka, (2) (Bochenski), 15:41
Bracken Kearns, Darren Boyle, and Karri Ramo were the game's three stars.
Finally, the Admirals power play (led by Hutchinson) does something, going 2/6. Also, they got some veteran scoring from Konopka and Bochenski and Ramo got a lead and held it. Oh yeah, and the team outshot Rockford 45-34. That's what this is supposed to look like.
The Admirals have dug a nice little hole for themselves, but this felt like a turning point, and they're going to be just six points out of fourth in the division at the end of the night.
