    Consulting the Cheap and Easy Headline Generator (tm) for this one: "Seven is heaven in the Admirals' opener."

    NOR-7
    BNG-4

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 36 shots but found himself awash in seven sweet goals of support to earn the victory.

    First Period
    BNG Keller, (1) (Locke, Butler), 13:20

    Second Period
    NOR Milam, (1) (Pouliot), 5:16
    BNG O'Brien, (2) (Daugavins, Hale), 8:02
    NOR Wishart, (1) (Quick, Fornataro), 9:43 (PP)
    NOR Jones, (1) (Pouliot, Quick), 13:56
    BNG Butler, (2) (Locke, Keller), 15:31
    BNG O'Brien, (3) (Benoit), 15:45
    NOR Milam, (2) (Quick), 16:10 (PP)
    NOR Jones, (2) (Simek, Pouliot), 16:34
    NOR Angelidis, (1) (Mihalik, Harju), 17:47

    Third Period
    NOR Fornataro, (1) (Wright, Szczechura), 17:57

    Blair Jones and Troy Milam were the game's first and second stars. Milam played in Finland the past couple of years, but before that he put up 37 points in 75 games for Manchester in 2007-2008, so he has legitimate AHL chops (and he's a righty shot, too). That's a very good signing by the Ads.

    M.A. Pouliot and Kevin Quick each had assists in triplicate. With the effort, Quick is already three-quarters of the way to matching his point production of all last season. I'm thinking he might like the new coach and system. Matt Fornataro also had multiple points with one goal and one assist.

    You know, on paper, this Admirals team should be a low scoring team that leans on their outstanding goaltending. They have depth, but other than maybe Johan Harju they don't have any guys who are Brandon Bochenski-type snipers. But they used that depth to overwhelm Binghamton tonight. You get the sense there are a lot of hungry Admirals players knocking on the door for NHL opportunities. And, the great thing is that while they got the win and established a lot of confidence in their offensive abilities, they made enough mistakes that Coach Cooper should be able to stay on his team and keep them away from the demon that is complacency.
