10/29/10 Andre Deveaux (again)

From the 10/24/10 set, Andre Deveaux's diving shot put the Wolves up 4-0 against the Admirals.

Also, you may notice a new tag, as each Friday, I plan to post 1 photo from the week that I consider "Top 10" material, which will I will run down at the conclusion of the AHL season. Unfortunately for Ads fans, so far the only 2 nominees are Andre Deveaux!

Game #4: Same ol' situation, Wolves over Ads 3-2

Yet again, the Admirals couldn't hold a lead into the 3rd period after going in ahead 2-1. Mike Siklenka netted the GTG in the 3rd period, with Spencer Machacek getting the winning shootout goal.

Paul Postma skates out during introductions.

Blake Geoffrion (#5) tips the shot into Wolves goaltender Edward Pasquale.

As seen before, Andre Deveaux (#7) lands the first punch on Admirals Scott Ford.

Wolves Jared Ross taps the puck past Admirals goalie Chet Pickard (#37)

Linus Klasen (#86) was the only Admiral to beat Edward Pasquale in the shootout.

Spencer Machacek (#8) beats Pickard glove side to give the Wolves the win.

Game #3 Ads flat in 3rd, flattened in OT.

The Milwaukee Admirals had the lead going into the 2nd Intermission after 2 Linus Klasen goals and some hustle, and typical for the Lane Lambert led crew, came out flat and blew the lead to the Chicago Wolves. Jamie Sifers would net the GWG in OT for Chicago.

Wolf Riley Holzapfel (#9) checks Ads Scott Ford (#4)

Admirals leading goal scorer, Linus Klasen (#86), nets his penalty shot goal.

A bit of a cocky "Can you hear me now?" celebration by Klasen after the goal.

Linus Klasen (#86) scores his second goal of the game.

Andre Deveaux (#7) gets the Wolves on the board, making it a 1 goal game.

Some great examples of Aaron Johnson's clean defensive play... Johnson would later get slashed in retaliation yet could not figure out why. Gee..

Ads goalie Chet Pickard (#37) stops Spencer Machacek's (#8) diving shot.

More of Ads defenseman Aaron Johnson's fine work, this time driving a Wolves player into goaltender Chet Pickard.

A blurry Jamie Sifers (#4) pots the game winner in overtime for the Chicago Wolves.

Instead, for today, I'll throw up some pictures from Andre Deveaux/Scott Ford fight.

Ford takes exception to the hit.

Game #1 Ads win over Heat

The Abbotsford Heat came out of the first period 2-0, then let some sloppy play let the game get away with an Ads 6-2 victory by the end.

Blake Geoffrion:

Heat goaltender Leland Irving had a tough night, including being screened by his own teammate for the first Ads goal.

Top 10: #1 Drumroll....

#1: Peter Mannino wins the #1 spot for all of the wrong reasons.

*Puck in net? Check.
*Waterbottle knocked of net? Check.
*Water splilled out of bottle? Check.

Robert Dietrich's first goal in the February 27th game provided a better image of Mannino missing the save than Dietrich shooting.
