Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Leads the Series 3-2

Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 25 shots in the loss. He's dropped to 2-3 in these playoffs, but he's got a very respectable 1.82 GAA and .937 save percentage thus far.

Third Period
NOR Barberio, (1) (Ritola, Milam), 9:45 (PP)

Mark Barberio was the game's second star. Congratulations to him on his first professional playoff goal. It was a big one, as it got the Admirals back in the game and Norfolk nearly cracked Brad Thiesen a couple of time to knot up the score afterward. But, in the end, it was not meant to be.

For the Lightning and Admirals to get swept in 5 home playoff games this week is just rough to take. Rough. To. Take. It hurts. Things looked so promising after the weekend when the teams took all 3 games they played. I certainly didn't expect a week of futility like this. Painful.
