Note II:  The Moose dropped their third straight game on Sunday when a poor start in the opening period allowed the Admirals to build a three goal lead.  While the Moose did their best to fight back and despite a number of posts/crossbars they just couldn’t full claw their way back into the game.  The team will be back on the ice today as they prepare to face the Admirals in a re-match tomorrow night.
