About Today’s Game: The Icemen close out their four game homestand tonight against Norfolk. On Wednesday the two teams were on a roller coaster ride that finished with the Icemen winning 9-6 and setting a club record of nine goals in the game. With the win, Jacksonville pulls within eight points of the fourth playoff position held by Orlando (56 pts), and trail third place Greenville by nine points.  The Icemen still have five games in-hand on the Swamp Rabbits.   Expect a big push back from the Admirals early in the contest as they look to avenge Wednesday’s loss despite scoring six goals.  The Admirals will close out their seven-game road stretch tomorrow in Atlanta, after playing the previous six in the State of Florida. 

Series History:  Tonight marks the sixth of seven meetings between the two teams this season.  The Icemen lead the season series 4-0-1-0 and leads the All-Time series  7-5-0.

Lynch has recorded a goal in three of his last five games, scoring five goals total during this stretch….Jacksonville’s leading scorer Chase Lang logged three points (1g, 2a) on Wednesday to bring his season totals to 48 points 18 goals….Adam Carlson is expected to make his 15th consecutive start this evening, while making appearances in the Icemen’s last 18 games.
