The Admirals did something they’ve only done four times from ten chances today: win in overtime. You can thank two goals from Charles-Oliver Roussel and Pekka Rinne’s glove-side post for denying Luke Adam’s shot in OT.

After the game I had the opportunity to speak with Dean Evason, Pekka Rinne, Charles-Oliver Roussel, and Scott Ford. Here is what they had to say following their 2-1 OT victory over the Rochester Americans.

    Very cool for Charles Roussel to get the goals. He was scrambling a little bit on D. But he was clutch to find the net twice and get the boys the win .

    I Googled – Hockey Leader- and a picture of Scott Ford popped up. He is a pro , if I owned my own company I would hire him, there is always a place for smart people who get it.
