Icemen End Homestand Against Admirals

Saturday, December 2nd
Icemen End Homestand Against Admirals

For the second straight game in the 2017-18 season presented by Community First Credit Union, the Jacksonville Icemen (4-11-1-1, 10 pts) face off against the Norfolk Admirals (6-13-1-0, 13 pts) at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

If Thursday's game was any indication for the type of game in store for tonight, fans are in luck. After a defensive first period, both teams began to pile on goals in the second and third periods. Elgin Pearce came up clutch for the Icemen late in the third, sending the game to overtime before Norfolk won the game in a shootout.

It will be interesting to see if both teams can continue the disciplined play displayed two days ago. The two clubs combined for just three minor penalties, resulting in mostly even-strength hockey. Staying out of the box will be important for Jacksonville, as Norfolk has the third-best road power play in the league.

The Icemen will have to focus on shutting down forward Grant Besse tonight. The rookie scored twice, including the game-winning shootout goal on Thursday. If the Icemen can shut down Norfolk with their defense, it bodes well for Jacksonville as the Admirals have the worst goals allowed average in the league with 4.15 per game.
