Alex Berry was the game's third star.

Norfolk had to work in Janus somewhere over this back-to-back-to-back games set, and the results were going to be unpredictable. Unfortunately, giving up 7 goals, the worst case scenario occured. I suspect Tic will be back in against Binghamton tomorrow and on Saturday.

I am heartened to see Johan Harju follow up his assist in the East's 11-8 All-Star victory on Monday night with a multi-point night in Charlotte. Big Joe hadn't had a multi-point game since November, although in fairness some of that time he was up with Tampa. I, personally, feel that it's important for Tampa Bay to keep Harju and other guys like Blair Jones rolling in Norfolk, because they'll provide depth in the case of injuries come playoff time.

Norfolk desperately needs to take these upcoming games against fifth place Binghamton, or they could really play themselves into some trouble. Right now Norfolk is in third place in the East, tied at 59 points with Charlotte with a game in hand. But, Bingo lurks 6 points back. If they were to sweep, Norfolk would find it in some deep trouble. A Norfolk sweep this weekend could really help put the Sens away. It's a crossroads of the season.

Alexandre Imbeault had a hat trick and four points as the Blades beat the Royals 7-4 Wednesday. The Naples News reported late Wednesday evening that ECHL leading scorer and Lightning prospect Mitch Fadden will miss the remainder of the season with a blood clot. He will return to his native British Columbia when he’s permitted by doctors to fly. Goaltender Jaroslav Janus is with Norfolk of the AHL and Alex Hutchings remains out with a lower body injury.

UPDATE TO NAPLES NEWS REPORT: Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman told the St. Pete Times that Fadden is out for a minimum of three months. While this is essentially the rest of his season, technically he could join the Blades for a portion of the playoffs.
