Admirals Aftermath: Fifteen Games Left, Five Points out of Playoffs

The Admirals had a pretty successful road trip beating two teams that are some of the toughest league but running out of energy in their final game against another top team. In the next two days they take on the Adirondack Phantoms who are battling to not finish last in the conference but still are a challenging team against the Admirals.

Three Star Admirals:
#3 - Kyle Wilson - He had a goal and played way better than I thought he would

#1 - John Mitchell - Had a really strong week and I hope his secondary scoring stays!
