AHL Game Night: 1-2-09 Admirals at Phantoms

Janus loses a squeaker in his return to the Admirals.

NOR-2
ADK-3

Jaroslav Janus allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss. Interesting factoid: Janus makes three members of the Admirals from the mean streets of Presov, Slovakia (Mihalik and Simek).

First Period
ADK Matsumoto, (15) (Laliberte, Nodl), 5:09
NOR Simek, (8) (Wishart, Syroczynski), 17:04 (PP)

Second Period
NOR Simek, (9) (Smolenak, Krajicek), 8:15
ADK Legein, (16) (Curry, Mormina), 9:44 (PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Juraj Simek was named the game's second star.

In 19 games since returning to Norfolk from his recall to Tampa, Ryan Craig has just 3 goals. With Brandon Bochenski now up with the Lightning, it's going to be critical for Craig, along with other guys like Radek Smolenak, to step up. On a similar note, don't you wish the Lightning's more touted prospects all were playing as well as an unheralded guy like Juraj Simek?
