Kevin Quick opened the scoring Sunday for the Lynx giving Augusta a 1-0 lead over the visiting Dayton Bombers with a power-play marker 8:19 into the 1st period on a feed from fellow Bolt prospect Chris Lawrence. Forward Patrick Bordeleau used his 6-foot-6, 225-pound frame to screen Dayton goaltender Tyler Plante, and Quick's shot squeezed through for the early lead. Coming off a franchise worst 12-0 loss the previous night to Florida, the Lynx rebounded with a 17-5 shot differential in the 1st period against the Bombers, but Dayton would battle back, tallying even strength and power play goals in the 2nd period and handing the Lynx a 2-1 defeat. This was Augusta's sixth straight loss, and their third in three nights.

Zubrus would be a Hall of Famer if all you looked at were his games against the Lightning.
The Lightning were outshot 45-29 in the game.
Steven Stamkos was -1 in 13:58 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and was 50% on draws.
Highs for Fadden, Jung, and Tokarski ... low for Tyrell.
