Ducklings

Anaheim's Prospects

Thanks For The Memories

Wrapping up three years of affiliation.

Final Home Game Worth Every Penny

The Admirals played their final home game of the season and saved the best for last.

Depleted roster finds LOTS of goals

What used to take four games only took the Admirals one earlier this week, as Norfolk found the back of the net seven times on Tuesday with as blue-collar a roster as one could find in the AHL.

"Sick and tired of being sick and tired"

Coach Skalde's post game quote summed up the offensive outburst and defensive lock down the Admirals put together to end a six game losing streak, just their third win in 17 games.

Is there anything left to play for?

With just nine games left and the post-season elimination now official, players, coaches, and fans alike are having a hard time getting excited for games.

Even the silver lining is fading

When ending an eight game win-less streak is the biggest thing going and even that means nothing with a loss the very next game, it's hard to find anything worth celebrating.

Admirals Season A Flush

Not even the luck of the Irish can save this season from a slow trip down the drain.

No longer about points, it's all about pride

The Admirals won't make the playoffs, but the job of the players hasn't changed--they still have to work for their spots on the roster, both this year and next.

Admirals Failing Playoff Probability Test

21 games left, 55 points needed for the playoffs. Something doesn't add up...

Admirals Stat-urday: Will Karlsson Wakes Up

Coach Skalde hoped Karlsson's recall and subsequent demotion would serve as a wake-up call. Karlsson's response? Three goals this week and three points in the standings for his team.

Welcome Back Noesen!

Admirals' and Ducks' fans alike should be excited to see highly touted prospect Stefan Noesen back on the ice for Norfolk after missing something like 600 games (or really just 42) this season.

Charting A Run For The Playoffs

The course is clear, the ultimate destination is the playoffs, and at last it seems like the Admirals are all on board. Twenty nine games left....

Cellar Door Jammed Shut

Despite the recent efforts of some players and the team as a whole, the Admirals just can't seem to break open the basement door and climb out of last place in the Eastern Conference.

Norfolk's Admirals Farewell Tour Begins

Pending a formal vote this weekend, the franchise known as the Norfolk Admirals will be moving west. Funny thing though, fans haven't seen consistent AHL hockey on the ice at Scope for months ago.

Admirals' Playoff Push Starts Now

The Admirals have to begin their push for the playoffs now as opposed to March if they have any hope of making a post-season appearance. Every game and every point is critical.

Admirals Moving.....In the Right Direction

The only moving in the Admirals future is up through the standings. Norfolk has points in four straight games with two road wins this week.

Different Teams, Same Ending

Win one, lose a couple. The story of the Admirals' season continues to read like a scary children's book with heroes that just can't quite save the day.

Gibson delivers a win for Christmas

John Gibson made sure to mark his return in style with a 2-1 win Saturday just before the Christmas break. His arrival could mark the beginning of a turn-around in Norfolk

Wild Bill Off The Reservation

On paper, William Karlsson should be among the scoring leaders for the Admirals. Instead, he's been pretty much invisible, along with many of the other "best" players on the Norfolk roster.

Does anyone care about anything but Bryzgalov?

Yes, he's here, and yes, he played well. It would figure however that the weekend the Admirals have the best on-paper lineup in team history they face the second best goalie in the AHL and the Number One team in their Conference.

Anaheim's Garbage is Norfolk's Gold

Keep throwing them away Bruce. Norfolk can always use the help.

Fresh Blood Sparks Winning Fire in Norfolk

Etem and Karlsson opened up time and space and Yann Danis stood tall this week to give the Admirals two much needed wins.

Can Somebody PLEASE Score A Goal?

The Admirals are averaging just 2.31 goals per game, and less than one goal per period. The job of scoring goals seems to sit with just one or two players, and that's just not going to get it done.

Redundancy Bordering On Insanity

One definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. That's an almost perfect description of the Admirals' play over the past few weeks.

Can Bobkov Carry The Load?

Igor Bobkov, buried in the ECHL last season, is now the Number One in Norfolk. While Wagner, Cramarossa, and Kerdiles are finding the back of the opponents' nets, Bobkov is now responsible for protecting the back of the Admirals' net.

Ugly win breaks four game losing streak

The Admirals broke through their four game losing streak with a win Friday night against the Baby Pens after spending a week in "training camp mode." Will the win and the return to fundamentals be enough to right the ship?

Admirals can't find offense or defense

The Admirals have won only two of their first five games and go in to the second game of the weekend having lost two in a row including a 4-0 shut-out.

Admirals "Old Time Hockey" to start the season

Three games, three goalies, ten goals for, eleven against as the 2014-2015 Admirals look to establish their identity this season.

Mini-Pod Live from the Futures Game

The 2014 Futures Game is in the books from Honda Center, and Chris, Eric, and Kyle are joined by Anaheim Calling contributor Liz Brownstein to talk about the Ducks 2-0 win over San Jose.

Ducklings on Ice

The Ducks' rookies swept a two game series against the Sharks' rookies this weekend, 5-4 in a shootout on Saturday and 2-0 at Honda Center on Sunday, here are some thoughts on how the standouts fared.
