Tonight your Amherstburg Admirals host the Alvinston Flyers.
The Admirals are still searching for their first home win, and it seems to me that tonight is as good a night as any to get it done.
Coming off a loss to the Belle River Canadiens where a stretch of sloppy play for two minutes cost them the game, the Admirals will be looking for a full 60-minute effort.
We currently sit in seventh place, two points behind the Flyers. Let’s catch them tonight!
