Paul Szczechura became the 4th Admiral to reach the 20 goal mark this season.

Norfolk gets nothing from its game in hand on Charlotte and Binghamton. They remain 3 points back of 3rd place Charlotte in the division and 1 point up on 5th place Binghamton. They need either 1 more point or a point lost by Connecticut to clinch the 3 seed in the Atlantic Division if they fall behind the Senators and enter the postseason via the crossover.
