AHL Game Night: 12/10/10 Penguins at Admirals

Norfolk gets a huge win despite losing their leading scorer(s) to call-up.

WBS-2
NOR-4

Dustin Tokarski stopped 33 of 35 shots he faced for the win. He's always been a big game goaltender, and this was as huge a game as you'll get in early December for the Admirals.

First Period
NOR Berry, (8) (Vernace, Wishart), 2:18 (PP)
WBS Johnson, (5) (Tangradi, Sneep), 5:13 (PP)
NOR Angelidis, (9) (Berry), 8:24

Second Period
NOR Milam, (4) (Angelidis, Berry), 7:56
WBS Johnson, (6) (Wallace, Potter), 9:05 (PP)

Third Period
NOR Giliati, (4) (Durno, Barberio), 6:21

Alex Berry, Mike Angelidis, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. It's amazing how players like Angelidis and Berry, who were third liners just a month ago for the Admirals, are stepping up and performing in scoring line roles.

Radko Gudas and Chris Durno are tied for third in the AHL in plus-minus at +14 with Gudas going +1 tonight.

The win is huge because Norfolk moves to within 5 points of the Penguins for the East Division lead with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton holding a game in hand. Norfolk can move even closer if they can follow up tonight's win with another victory tomorrow night in the Pens' barn.

AHL Game Night: 12/3/10 Admirals at Monarchs

The Monarchs were deposed, violently, by Norfolk.

NOR-7
MAN-2

Cedrick Desjardins stopped 23 of 25 shots for the win.

First Period
NOR Angelidis, (6) (Roy, Fornataro), 1:49
NOR Fornataro, (6) (Angelidis), 12:23
MCH King, (7) (Moller, Voynov), 17:10 (PP)

Second Period
NOR Fornataro, (7) (Szczechura, Angelidis), 4:45
NOR Jones, (8) (Labrie, Angelidis), 9:12
NOR Angelidis, (7) (Roy, Durno), 18:55
NOR Pouliot, (5) (Wright, Jackson), 19:38

Third Period
MCH Holloway, (6) (Kozun, Mullen), 2:34
NOR Pouliot, (6) (Wright, Roy), 8:00

Mike Angelidis, Matt Fornataro, and Marc-Antoine Pouliot were the game's three stars. Angelidis, who had just 24 points all of last season for Albany, had 2 goals and 5 points in this game and is already sitting on 15 points for the season.

Mathieu Roy had 3 assists and was +6 after being returned to Norfolk by the Lightning. Ty Wishart and Angelidis were +5.

Norfolk jumps back into second place in the East Division, but are 8 points back of first place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Norfolk heads into Portland tomorrow night to face the Pirates. With 92 goals, the club is averaging an even 4.00 goals per game to lead the AHL.

AHL Game Night: 11/27/10 Admirals at Falcons

Norfolk's third line runs wild.

NOR-5
SPR-2

Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 15 shots for the win. He continues to lap up the sweet nectar of seemingly unlimited goal support. Goalies everywhere in the AHL must be envious.

First Period
NOR Angelidis, (4) (Giliati, Jackson), 1:57
SPR Kubalik, (7) (Guite, Calvert), 6:18
NOR Labrie, (3) (Wishart, Gudas), 14:29

Second Period
NOR Harju, (13) , 14:45

Third Period
NOR Angelidis, (5) (Labrie), 2:15
NOR Giliati, (3) (Labrie, Angelidis), 6:59
SPR Tarnasky, (3) (Regner), 13:37

Mike Angelidis, Pierre-Cedric Labrie, and (my boy) Stefano Giliati were the game's three stars. Labrie and Giliati are quickly becoming BoltProspects favorites for their ability to provide both grit and lower line scoring for the Admirals. Labrie has 3 goals and 5 points in his last 3 games and Giliati has 2 goals and 6 points in his last 5 games. Keep and eye on these two players. Labrie has a little bit of a funky first step to his skating stride he needs to work out, but he has good size, hits everything that moves, isn't afraid to drop the mitts, and will chip in offensively. At some point, Julien BriseBois and the Lightning need to give serious consideration to giving Labrie either a full AHL ride, or possibly even an NHL entry-level deal. Giliati, despite being small in stature, is pesky and tough on the forecheck, with good speed and skill level.

Johan Harju is now tied with Linus Omark and several others at 23 points for 5th in the AHL in scoring. His 13 goals are third in the league, two back of leader Andrew Gordon of Hershey.

Chris Durno is now tied for the league lead in plus-minus at +14, one plus ahead of Radko Gudas, who improved to +13 and had a helper tonight.

Norfolk closes out the weekend tomorrow afternoon in Bridgeport. They remain 4 points back of the Pens for first in the East Division, with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton still holding a game in hand. Norfolk's 85 goals is tops in the AHL, 5 ahead of Hershey.

AHL Game Night: 11/20/10 Phantoms at Admirals

Goaltending coming together at the right time.

ADK-1
NOR-3

Dustin Tokarski allowed just 1 goal on 22 shots for the win. Tokarski also stopped a third period penalty shot by Denis Hamel, to boot. That snaps a streak of three straight games where he recorded a loss and had a sub-.900 save percentage. Between this start and Desjardins' win last night, the Admirals have to be hoping they're going to now start to get the goaltending they thought they'd get at the start of this year when, on paper, it appeared they had one of the best tandems in the AHL.

First Period
ADK Laliberte, (3) (Wellwood, Hamel), 8:05 (PP)
NOR Berry, (4) (Simek, Barberio), 19:16

Second Period
NOR Berry, (5) (Pouliot, Wishart), 18:19

Third Period
NOR Angelidis, (3) (Giliati, Gudas), 2:20

Alex Berry, Mike Angelidis, and Marc-Antoine Pouliot were the game's three stars. Don't look now, but Alex Berry has 4 goals in his last 4 games. Who'd have thunk it.

It was a pretty good night for the Lightning's two rookie d-men, too. Mark Barberio now has 5 assists and is +4 in 12 games. Radko Gudas also collected his 5th assist of the season and is +10(!) in 14 games. Not too bad for a couple of greenhorns.

And, Stefano Giliati, who I've adopted as a BP favorite, got an assist that is his 3rd point in 8 games. I like me some Stefano Giliati. He's a quick little sparkplug who's a nice mix of skill and jam.

It's a nice win for Norfolk considering that their two best shooters, arguably, (Harju and Jones) are up in Tampa right now. Yes, Adirondack is terrible, but they also beat Norfolk in OT last time out. There's nothing wrong with taking care of business.
