Monarchs blank Admirals 2-0 in game 1

MANCHESTER, NH (WAVY) — The Admirals dropped game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, falling to the top-seeded Manchester Monarchs 2-0.

John Gibson was back in goal for the Admirals and he stopped 24 of 26 shots, but Norfolk could not find an answer for Manchester netminder Jean-Francois Berube who had 30 saves.

While the Admirals were perfect on the penalty kill, they didn’t take advantage of their power play opportunities, including a :40 stretch in which they had a five-on-three advantage.

Game 2 is Saturday in New Hampshire. The series shifts to Scope on Wednesday night for game 3.
