Falcons Weekday GDT #2

The Falcons look to sweep the 2 game season series against the Norfolk Admirals on Wednesday. Emotions ran high in Friday's meeting with Theo Peckham getting into a pregame altercation and Guillaume Lefebvre fighting Norfolk's Zenon Konopka 1 second into the game and then once more 9 minutes and 5 seconds later.

The pregame fight resulted in a 3 game suspension for Theo Peckham, so he will be unavailable for the rematch. Expect Guillaume Lefebvre, Mathieu Roy, and Hans Benson to take up the slack in terms of the rough stuff with Tim Sestito and Theo Peckham unavailable.

A number of former Falcons remain on the Norfolk team as the Tampa Bay Lighting was the previous NHL affiliate of the Falcons before the Oilers took over prior to the '07-08 season.

Expect more fireworks as well as fast skating and hard hitting hockey when these 2 lock horns for the last time this season today. The Falcons will play their 2nd game without captain Tim Sestito who was called up prior to Sunday's game against Lowell.

Brule's got a powerplay marker. It's nice to see we've got a burgeoning scorer in the AHL to compliment all these playmakers.
