There was plenty to cheer about in the Admirals Friday night showdown with Springfield. First of all, it was toy toss night. After the first goal of the game by Antoine Laganiere the fans tossed what amounted to more than a truckload of stuffed toys on the ice to benefit "Toys for Tots."
The Admirals had a 4-2 lead until under three minutes in regulation. The Falcons came back to score twice in the closing minutes to force overtime. After a scoreless five minute stanza, Steven Whitney of the Admirals would score the only goal in the shootout for the win.
