One step forward…one back

Eight goals, on any given night, is pretty good. There were the Admirals, running the Stingrays out of the rink before the end of the second period. Gabriel Verpaelst recorded five points. Then, there was Greg Chase scoring the world’s quietest hat trick.  Somewhere along the way, Ben Betker and Alexis Loiseau got injured and Scott Allen took a puck to the face.  Norfolk followed up the next night by allowing the Stingrays to score six and split the weekend. What appeared to be a legitimate playoff chase quickly sank in one night. Here were the Admirals, and this wasn’t good enough.


Norfolk needs to make up seven points and get some help if they want to reach the playoffs. Doing so seems incredibly unlikely at this point. For one, they’re still tied for most games played in the league, with 46. 11th place Orlando, also at 40 points, still has five games-in-hand.  Playoff dreams are slipping.

No transactions to report. Perhaps this is good news, with the injured charges getting healthy for this weekend’s tilt against Adirondack.
