Sean Burke allowed 5 goals on 14 shots for the loss before being lifted for Karri Ramo  who allowed 3 on 17. Jared Aulin scored the lone Falcons goal. Marek Kvapil  was a scratch for Springfield.
It should also be noted Ramo got multiple penalties for leaving the crease and initiating a fight with Admirals goaltender Sebastien Caron  in a bloody and fight marred third period.

Following this disasterous effort I expect some changes might be made before next weekend's batch of game. It was already a likelihood that some of the lower line/healthy scratches like Deveaux , Henrich  or Hrdel  might be on their way down for Johnstown's opener, but given the strong play of Lascek  and Smolenak  in the Chiefs' preseason games this weekend, now might be the time for Springfield to entertain more wholesale changes.
