Veteran Mark Parrish was named the game's second star. The Admirals really gave Hershey a good run, but in the end the Bears were too much with their 37-20 shot advantage in the game.

Dana Tyrell is still hunting for his first goal of the season, but with a pair of helpers tonight he got his first multi-point game of the season. We expect the former Prince George Cougar to get stronger as the season progresses as he shakes off the rust from missing half a season last year with a knee injury and continues to acclimate to the pro game.

Scott Jackson was +3 tonight and seized the team lead in plus-minus at +11. He's not the world's fastest skater, but he was known as a very strong player positionally coming out of junior and it's showing this year.

Norfolk stayed in second place with the win and they are an outstanding 7-2-1 over their last 10 contests. Manchester is no pushover, as they currently sit in first place in the Atlantic Division, and yet the Admirals outshot the Monarchs 35-22 in the game.
