Default AHL Playoff Game Night: 4-21-12 Monarchs at Admirals Game Two

All good things...

MCH-5
NOR-2


Jaroslav Janus allowed 4 goals on 29 shots for the loss. None of the 4 goals he allowed were particularly terrible. However, he didn't seem to react well to getting bumped around 2-3 times early and he seemed a little bit scrambled and out of control at times. Cooper stuck to his plan and stayed with Janus after the win despite the soft goal he allowed in Game One, but with the loss, one would expect Dustin Tokarski to be in as the series switches to Manchester.

First Period
MCH Vey, (1) (Hickey), 11:23
MCH Kozun, (1) (Kaunisto, Hunter), 17:12

Second Period
NOR Picard, (2) (Segal, Killorn), 5:10
NOR Picard, (3) (Dimmen, Killorn), 10:02

Third Period
MCH Czarnik, (1) (Vey, Hickey), 5:28
MCH Vey, (2) , 16:16
MCH Andreoff, (1) (Muzzin), 17:59

Alexandre Picard was the game's third star.

It was another uneven effort by the Admirals, made worse by the loss of Tyler Johnson who was out of the lineup with an injury suffered in the last game. Norfolk again was flat in the first period and tonight they paid for it. They fell behind 2-0 before a sweeping comeback in the Second Period where they outshot Manchester 22-10. But, they couldn't keep the pace up, and Manchester got the key go-ahead goal and then caught the Admirals pressing for the tying goal.

Now Norfolk falls squarely behind the eight-ball, needing to win 2 of 3 on the road in Manchester to survive the Quarterfinals. From what little I know of Johnson's injury, I'm not sure he'll be available, but they'll presumably get Radko Gudas back from illness. It's a hard hill to climb now, though, and a nightmare scenario I did not want to see this team face when the initial schedule of the series was announced. All hands will need to be on deck Wednesday for Game Three.

Box score from TheAHL.com.
