2012-13 Norfolk Admirals
Everything you could ever want on Anaheim Ducks' AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.
The Admirals were finally able to add to their season total of even-strength goals, scoring three Friday night and bringing the grand total to a "whopping" five.
It was no contest as the Syracuse Crunch thrashed the Ads 6-1 thanks to a hat trick from AHL MVP Tyler Johnson. The loss dropped Norfolk out of a playoff spot to ninth by way of tiebreakers.
Being just two points behind the eighth and final playoff spot provides all the focus the Admirals need for the remainder of the season.
The Ads came back from a three goal deficit to the best team in the league, bringing them within two points of Hershey in the eighth and final playoff spot, thanks to a hat trick by Pat Maroon, including the game tying goal and the winner in OT.
The Norfolk Admirals beat the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and are now just two points out of the playoffs.
