    Vernace pushes Norfolk to a 5-1-0 finish to their 6 game road trip.

    SPR-2 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory. He's getting a little stronger now. He's been at .917 or better in three of his last four starts in the save percentage department.

    First Period
    SPR Blunden, (10) (Goloubef), 14:27 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Vernace, (4) (Durno, Marks), 18:01

    Third Period
    NOR Berry, (7) (Jones, Vernace), 11:35 (PP)
    SPR Pandolfo, (2) (Clitsome, Goloubef), 19:40

    NOR Vernace, (5) (Jones, Durno), 1:43 (PP)

    Michael Vernace was the game's first star with 2 goals and 3 points, including the overtime winner.

    Norfolk moves to within 6 points of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with the Penguins holding a game in hand. Here's an interesting statistic: Norfolk has played 18 games on the road already and just 7 games at home. That means that with only about a quarter of the season gone, the club has already played almost half of its games away from The Scope. They have a ridiculous .722 winning percentage on the road, and just a .571 winning percentage at home. The team will have a glut of home games to play during the second half of the season, and if they can start winning at home at the same clip they do on the road, they've got a great chance of winning their division.

    Florida Everblades 5 @ Cincinnati Cyclones 3
    C Mitch Fadden: 0-3-3, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 23 GP, 9-27-36, +6, 24 PIM
    LW Alex Hutchings: 3-1-4, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *First Star*

    Season totals: 12 GP, 7-4-0-0, 3.27 GAA, .904 sv%, 0 SO

    That’s more like it! Alex Hutchings, who scored 47 goals last year for Barrie in the OHL but has struggled somewhat in his rookie pro year, erupted for three goals and four points as the Everblades won their sixth in a row Saturday night, defeating Cincinnati 5-3. Hutchings (pictured while with Barrie) benefited from playing on a line with ECHL scoring leader Mitch Fadden, who extended his point streak to seven games and had his third three-point night in four outings, assisting on all three of Hutchings’ goals. Fadden has 10 points in his last four games, and 19 in his last 10. Though AHL Norfolk is rolling offensively, Fadden may be forcing his way into the lineup.

    Without goaltending, the Lightning keep winning the hard way.


    Dan Ellis allowed 5 goals on 24 shots, but stopped just enough to get the win.

    First Period
    07:14 TB Thompson (4), Hall (4), Hedman (9)
    15:53 COL Dupuis (3), M. Hunwick (3)

    Second Period
    01:52 TB St Louis (11), Gagne (2), Ohlund (2)
    02:44 TB Ritola (2), Harju (1), Tyrell (3)
    07:18 COL Duchene (8), Fleischmann (7), Liles (20)
    11:07 TB Gagne (2), St Louis (22), Purcell (13)(PP)

    Third Period
    01:24 COL Stastny (10), Shattenkirk (9), Hejduk (20)
    09:06 TB Malone (7), Gagne (3), St Louis (23)(PP)
    15:55 TB Bergenheim (5), Lundin (6), Malone (13)
    17:49 COL Yip (6), Winnik (4), Duchene (16)(PP)
    18:54 COL Shattenkirk (5), Fleischmann (8), Hejduk (21)

    Simon Gagne, Martin St. Louis, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars. Gagne is playing superb since returning from injury. Like I've said, I'm hoping Lecavalier comes back just as strong after having had time away to clear off a mediocre start to the year.

    I've officially lost faith in Dan Ellis now, too. Yes, there are some goals that are getting in on him that are taking screwy bounces. The problem is that screwy bounces have a strange way of happening to bad goaltenders. There's a black cloud over this goaltending tandem, and sooner rather than later Steve Yzerman needs to do something about it.

    Mattias Ritola had a goal and was +1 with 1 shot in 8:53. The goal was BoltProspects' favorite of the season so far, for obvious reasons.

    Johan Harju had his first NHL assist and 2 shots and 2 hits in 7:33. Congratulations Big Joe.

    Dana Tyrell had an assist and a blocked shot in 10:37.

    The Admirals return the favor for late game comebacks and post-regulation losses in Norfolk.

    POR-3 (SO)

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 36 of 39 shots and all five shooters he faced in the shootout for the victory. That's more like it.

    First Period
    POR Byron, (6) (Gragnani, Tropp), 9:25
    POR Brennan, (3) (Legault, McCauley), 14:08
    POR Byron, (7) (Gragnani, Tropp), 16:25

    Second Period
    NOR Jones, (9) (Pouliot), 0:33

    Third Period
    NOR Durno, (8) (Barberio, Szczechura), 16:54 (PP)
    NOR Angelidis, (8) (Barberio, Fornataro), 19:27


    NOR- Pouliot

    Durno and Angelidis scored two goals in the last 3:06 of regulation to spoil Jhonas Enroth's bid for a victory. Mark Barberio had primary assists on both goals, giving Barberio the first multi-point game of his pro career.

    Norfolk head to Springfield tomorrow to play the Falcons. Norfolk remains in second place in the East Division, 8 points back of the Penguins.

    Mullin (pictured) had a monster night for Fargo, earning four of his five points in the second period, including a shorthanded goal. Mullin is now over a point-per-game pace and leads the Force in scoring. Fargo evened their record at 9-9-3 and is climbing up the Western Conference standings.

    Season totals: 28 GP, 22-15-37, -4, 8 PIM

    Connolly has goals in four straight games and in six of his last seven games. He is third in the league in goals. Connolly passed the Lightning’s Steven Stamkos for the goal scoring lead in the Lightning organization. Your move, Mr. Stamkos. Colin Jacobs (2011 eligible) had a hat trick for Seattle Friday.
