SERIES PREVIEW | MARCH 30 - APRIL 1 VS. NORFOLK

The Newfoundland Growlers visit Virginia for the first time ever as they take on the Norfolk Admirals in a three-game tripleheader beginning on Thursday night at the Norfolk Scope.

Newfoundland had a strong showing in the first half of their six-game trip this past week as they took two out of three against the Florida Everblades at Hertz Arena finishing with a thrilling 3-2 win on Saturday night in Estero.

As has been the case for most of the month of March, the Growlers remain 10 points clear of the pack in the North Division and continue to creep closer to locking up top spot in the division with just eight games left in their regular season campaign.

Norfolk have had a difficult rookie season as the newest member of the North Division as they sit in 7th  some 26 points out of a playoff spot.

The good news for the Admirals is the top three teams in the division have pivotal games left on their schedule against Norfolk. No better way to make your mark down the stretch than play spoiler against one of the postseason contenders.

In their only prior meetings this season, Newfoundland swept Norfolk in three straight contests at the Mary Brown’s Centre back in November.

With a chance to set a new franchise mark for wins in a season in this series, the Growlers have plenty of motivation going into their three-game set with the Admirals.

Puck drops is set for 8:35 pm on Thursday & Friday and 7:35 pm on Saturday night. Growlers fans can watch all three games live on FloSports (subscription required), listen to the call on Mixlr, or follow along on Twitter (@NLGrowlers) for game updates and highlights.

WHO TO WATCH:

NFL – Jonny Tychonick (F): The newest Growlers defenceman scored his first pro goal in just his second pro game last Friday night vs. Florida and could serve as an X-factor on Newfoundland’s blueline to close out the season.

NOR – Stepan Timofeyev(F): The 27-year-old Russian is third on Norfolk in scoring with 29 points (13G, 16A) despite playing just 35 games. His +4 rating despite the team’s -103 goal differential also jumps off the page.
