Icemen Look for Continued Success in Norfolk

Tonight, the Jacksonville Icemen (17-27-3-3, 40 pts) travel to Virginia to take on the Norfolk Admirals (18-25-5-1, 42 pts) at 7:00 p.m. The last two times the Icemen have made the trip to Norfolk, they have skated away victorious.

Norfolk is in the midst of a nine-game homestand, but the Admirals have been struggling at home as of late. In their last five games at the Norfolk Scope, the Admirals have just one win. The string of bad games has pulled the Icemen within two points of their South Division opponent heading into tonight's matchup.

For the visiting Icemen, they're determined to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 loss on Sunday to the Allen Americans. In their last four road games, the Icemen have won three times and look to continue that success against Norfolk this evening.

If the trend continue, tonight's game should be a high-scoring, competitive event. Jacksonville has scored at least three goals in each of the last four meetings against the Admirals. Norfolk is also 24th in the ECHL in goals allowed, averaging 3.80 per game. There has yet to be a game settled in regulation between the two clubs in the 2017-18 season, presented by Community First Credit Union.

Tune in to ECHL TV tonight at 7:00 p.m. as the Icemen and Admirals drop the puck in Norfolk.
