Good to see Marek Kvapil get back on the scoresheet after returning from Mississippi.

Newcomer Paul Szczechura had a goal and was named second star of the game while Junior Lessard finished -1 with 4 shots on goal, which was tied for the team high.

Recently the Ads have been outshooting their opposition and losing 1 goal heartbreakers. You get the feeling if they find a way to pull one or two of these out the floodgates might open and they'll get on a run, at least at home where they have the travel advantage.
