Desjardins was the game's third star. The line of Harju/Pouliot/Simek continues to stake its claim to being the best in the AHL. Simek has 3-4-7 in 10 games, Harju has 6-8-14, and Marc-Antoine Pouliot has a gaudy 4-13-17. Pouliot is tied for second in the league in scoring while Harju sits tied for eighth.

Norfolk jumps back into second place in the East Division, four points shy of the Penguins. Charlotte travels to Scope tomorrow night for the back end of the home-and-home set.
