Mark Barberio, Mike Kostka, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Since being named an AHL All-Star, Barberio's only seemed to ramp up his production. He's got 1 goal and 5 points in the last 4 games and he's opened up a 3 point lead, as of this posting, in the race for the title as top scoring AHL defenseman.

With the win, Norfolk draws within 6 points of idle Hershey for the top spot in the division. They draw Connecticut again tomorrow.
