It would have been reasonable for the Admirals to pull six or even all eight points from this week, but they decided not to show up against the Adirondack Phantoms on a Tuesday night game and got whipped 4-1 against the worst team in the league.
The next night they played like they can and should every game almost getting 50 shots on goal and Andersen got a shutout. A trip up to Wlikes-Barre got the Admirals another two points in a 4-1 victory over the Penguins. Then on the 26th, the Admirals held one of the top teams in the Western Conference to just three shots in the first period, but gave up three goals and 32 shots in the next 40 minutes. On Tuesday night games the Admirals are now 0-3 and have been outscored 11-4. It's kinda weird that they can't put together a solid effort on a specific day. They have one more Tuesday game this year to try and get a W.
The Admirals are four points out of the playoffs and its not looking to good for the final 11 games if they can't keep up a consistent level of play. This weekend they take on the top team in the league at the Norfolk Scope. The Crunch come into town without most of the players that won the Calder Cup for Norfolk last season, but not the coach. Hopefully some of the fans will be less attached to the enemy now.
