Norfolk allowed 5 unanswered goals after scoring the game's opening marker before scoring 3 of their own in the third period in a failed comeback bid.

Adam Henrich was named the game's third star. Henrich has 2 goals and 7 points in his last 10 games, and appears to have gained a good measure of the momentum he had earlier in the season prior to getting hurt. From the outside looking in, it certainly appears that the former 2002 second round pick has done everything you could ask of him to earn a contract next season.

Blair Jones has 3 goals and 11 points in his last 13 games, which is a hopeful sign for a guy who had gone scoreless in his previous 13 games.

It was also really good to see Chris Lawrence get a helper in his first game back after missing a month and a half with a shoulder injury.
