Comeback kids bury the Checkers.

Mark Barberio starts his season with assists in triplicate.
Alexandre Picard had the biggest goal of the game on the power play to cap a 2 goal third period comeback and send the game to overtime. Who started the comeback? Pierre-Cedric Labrie with a nifty move to cut past the defense and cut the deficit in half. Somewhere Bolt Prospects writer and secret P-C Labrie fan Chad Schnarr is cringing and chuckling.
Norfolk outshot Charlotte 45-29 in the victory.
