Norfolk only mustard 12 shots against Penguins goalie Jeff Zatkoff the entire tilt. Newly acquired forward Brayden Irwin scored the games only goal early in the third period. Irwin found a Sami Vatanen rebound and shoveled a shot that eluded Zatkoff.
Both teams hatched goose eggs on the power play. Norfolk failed to convert on all 3 P.P. chances while Wilkes-Barre/Scranton failed on all 8 attempts. Penguins goalie Zatkoff was credited with the loss. His record now reads 16-14-0.
The Admirals look forward to build on this success tomorrow night as the Connecticut Whale host the Admirals tomorrow evening at 7:00 pm.
