The Norfolk Admirals—the AHL affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning—hit the ice with speedy skates and powerful stick-swings as they begin the 2011–12 season. Instead of reenacting last year’s highlights during a full-contact charades session, today’s Groupon ushers guests to one of the first two matches of the season. Fans will sidle up to the rink in Gold-level seats, where they can witness bone-crushing body checks and breathtaking triple axels. Center Mike Angelidis hopes to top last season’s 20 goals and 18 assists with his razor-sharp shooting skills, and goalie Dustin Tokarski is prepared to deflect pucks and swiftly hurled sno-cones after logging 1,088 saves last year. Additionally, the season’s “Armed & Ready” theme will inspire legions of fans to brandish finger-guns as they gallop across the ice plains on a Zamboni.
