Admirals Aftermath: Two Outta' Three Ain't Bad, Unless You're Trying To Make The Playoffs

TillDeath Creations

The Norfolk Admirals are on a desperate run to make the playoffs. This past week they won 2 of 3 games. Great, except they need to be practically perfect from here on out to make the playoffs.

The Admirals had a pretty decent week winning going 2-for-3 but at this point in the season they need to win 3-of-3 every week.
