Norfolk, VA - Rookie goaltender John Gibson made 25 saves for his fourth shutout of the season Friday night at Norfolk Scope, and Chris Wagner’s third-period goal was the game’s only score, as the Norfolk Admirals defeated the Hartford Wolf Pack, 1-0.

The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Wolf Pack, who fell to 17-24-0-5 (39 pts.) on the year.

After more than two-and-a-half scoreless periods, Wagner finally broke the 0-0 deadlock at 13:31 of the third, three seconds after a holding penalty to Hartford’s Jesper Fast expired. After Wolf Pack defenseman Aaron Johnson knocked the puck away from Wagner in the left circle, Kevin Gagne prevented Johnson from clearing. Gagne banged the puck at the net from the left point, and it hit Wagner and deflected past Wolf Pack goaltender David LeNeveu (13 saves).

The Wolf Pack outshot the Admirals 25-14 in the game, including 5-2 in the third period.

“I thought we outplayed them,” LeNeveu said. “I thought we outchanced them, we battled hard all game. We missed some open nets, and it’s just one of those games. One lucky bounce for them, and unfortunately that decides the game some nights.”

The Wolf Pack controlled much of the play in a scoreless first period, outshooting the Admirals 12-7 and forcing Gibson make several sharp saves.

Play was more even in the second period, with the Wolf Pack outshooting Norfolk 8-5, and the Admirals having two power plays to the Wolf Pack’s one, but again neither team could find the back of the net.

The Wolf Pack and Admirals tangle again Saturday night at Scope, in their last action before the AHL All-Star break, with faceoff at 7:15 PM. All the action can be heard live on Fox Sports Radio 1410, and on-line at www.foxsportsradio1410.com and iHeartRadio. Video streaming is available at www.ahllive.com.
