Smaby and Brandon Bochenski were the game's first and second stars.
Kudos to Darren Rumble for shaming his team by pulling Ramo after the second period. Norfolk responded by outshooting the Penguins 22-4 the rest of the way and tallying three unanswered goals to finish their home stand at 2-1-0.
Matt Smaby has 2 goals and 3 points in his last two games, sandwiched with a Turkey Day trip home to Minnesota. You get the feeling he, like several of his Admirals prospect teammates, is starting to turn the corner and line up for a callup and a real shot at the NHL later this season.
