Admirals blank Crunch in fight-filled game at Scope


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The Admirals got a second period goal from Rickard Rakell and another in the third from Devante Smith-Pelly in their 2-0 win over the Syracuse Crunch.

Goalie John Gibson recorded 17 saves, on way to his fifth shutout of the season.

Fights were rampant in this one, especially after former Admiral J.P. Cote sent Jesse Blacker flying after a vicious hit that left Blacker dazed on the ice for several minutes.

The same two teams meet again Saturday night at Scope.
