Tic throws his hat in the ring for Prospect of the Week.
Dustin Tokarski (pictured) had a 37 save shutout victory. In his 2 starts this weekend, he stopped 47 of 48 shots he faced, and it's only crummy goal support that kept him from going 2-0-0. He's pushed his save percentage back up over .900 (.903) and his GAA has pushed back down to 2.54. Remember, he gave up 11 goals in his first 2 starts this year, so this is significant improvement.
NOR Labrie, (2) (Ashton, Landry), 8:19
NOR Angelidis, (2) (Conacher, Dimmen), 18:15
NOR Ashton, (11) (Labrie), 14:24
No player splits opinion on the Bolt Prospects staff like Labrie, whose skating is stiff as a corpse but works his butt off on every shift and hits everything that moves. To me, Labrie is one of those guys like Corey Spring, back-in-the-day, who is a good minor league soldier who gives you so much more than the sum of his parts.
Ashton, ho hum, temporarily moves back into a tie for 3rd in the league in scoring, and first in goals.
Still no Ritola in the lineup. Norfolk returns home Wednesday night to square off with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in their first encounter of the season with the hated Pens.
