AHL Preseason Game Day 9/30: Admirals at Phantoms

The Admirals got some great goaltending from Karri Ramo and Ryan Munce and it made all the difference.

NOR-3
PHI-2 (SO)

Ramo stopped 10 of 11 shots he faced before giving way to Munce who stopped 28 of 29 and went on for the shootout victory.

Justin Keller and Radek Smolenak scored for Norfolk in the shootout.

I won't even attempt to argue for Ramo's promotion to the bigs from a business standpoint, because it doesn't make sense.

AHL Game Night 4/13: Monarchs at Falcons

It's a good thing this season is about over. Otherwise, I think mild mannered Steve Stirling might be prone to choke some of these players.
