NORFOLK, VIRGINIA – David Vallorani had two goals and four points and Jamie Phillips made 22 saves as the Brampton Beast sunk the Norfolk Admirals 5-2 on Friday night.
The Brampton Beast met against the Norfolk Admirals for the second time in a row on Friday night. Brampton won the first clash 7-3 this past Wednesday.
Brampton got on the board first on Friday with a power play marker from David Pacan. Dan Leavens sent the disc to Anthony Nigro and the forward spied Pacan in front of the net and found him for the easy tip in and 1-0 lead at 5:38.
Jamie Phillips, who was making his Beast debut, was perfect in the first and saved all six shots he faced. The Beast ended the first period up by a score of 1-0 and ahead in shots to the tune of 15-6.
The second period saw the Admirals get on the board first with a goal from Artem Ivanyuzhenkov. The forward broke in and buried it past Jamie Phillips on a short-handed breakaway to tie the game 1-1 at 1:48.
The Beast then roared back with a power play goal from Nigro. The forward took a knee and fired the puck into the back of the net to restore the lead at 4:28.
The Beast attack didn’t quit, as Nigro would shortly after score his second of the game off a gorgeous pass from Brenden Miller. That would give the Beast a two-goal lead at 7:47.
The scoring didn’t end there as Dvaid Vallorani threaded a seeing eye shot through the pads of Jake Theut for his 30th of the year on another Brampton power play.
That extended the lead to 4-1 at the 10:59 mark of the middle frame. The Beast took that lead into the intermission and held the shots advantage to the tune of 26-13.
Alex Tonge made things interesting in the third period with a wraparound goal at 17:10 that pulled the Admirals within a pair, but Vallorani fired into the empty net and ended the threat with his second of the game and 31st of the year at 19:40.
Brampton would take the win by a score of 5-2 on Friday night. Phillips would make 22 saves for the win in his Beast debut. Theut would end the night with the loss and 26 saves of his own.
