Corey Elkins scored twice as the Norfolk Admirals opened their 2012-13 preseason schedule with a 3-0 win over the Charlotte Checkers on Saturday night at Scope.
Kyle Palmieri added a goal and an assist in the victory, which was the first game played for the Admirals as the top minor-league affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks. Goaltenders Frederik Anderson and Igor Bobkov combined for a 25-save shutout.
The Admirals and Checkers will play another preseason game at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Chilled Ponds complex in Chesapeake.
Eloise Eden wired the field and scored a convincing 6 ½-length win in Saturday’s $5,000 Virginia-bred 2 Year Old Filly Trot, which served as a prep for next Sunday’s $50,000 (est.) finale at Colonial Downs. The 3-year-olds will compete Sunday.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
