AHL Game Day 3/2: Admirals at Sharks

Third period comeback effort falls short.

NOR-4
WOR-5

Jonathan Boutin allowed 5 goals on 32 shots for the loss.

Third Period

NOR Jones, (11) (Segal, Kearns), 19:27 (PP)

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.

AHL Game Night 11/23: Falcons at Admirals

Maybe this is the weekend the Admirals make their move after all?

SPR-2
NOR-4

Jonathan Boutin stopped 30 of 32 shots faced in the win. The young netminder has now run his record to 5-2-2 on the season with a 2.57 GAA and .925 save percentage.

First Period
NOR Stewart, (3) (Keller, Jones), 5:12
NOR Campbell, (2) (Klinkhammer, Lawrence), 5:42
NOR Klinkhammer, (1) (Leach, Mihalik), 11:30
NOR Lawrence, (3) (Klinkhammer, Mihalik), 11:46
SPR Thoresen, (12) (Schremp, Syvret), 19:41

Second Period
SPR Sestito, (2) (Schremp, Syvret), 7:43

Third Period
NO SCORING

Rob Klinkhammer, Boutin, and Chris Lawrence were the game's three stars.

Norfolk improves its record to 7-10-2 on the season with one more game to go against Springfield this weekend.

Norfolk is now tied with Wilkes/Barre Scranton with 16 points, 2 back of Hershey for the final playoff spot in the division and 3 back of Albany and Binghamton. Once they play Springfield tomorrow night they get back into division play on the road with two games against Albany and then matchups with Binghamton and Hershey, so a winning streak now can flip their fortunes in the division quickly.

Can't look ahead though. Springfield's going to come out flying Saturday night.

Lawrence Signs Rookie Deal

The Tampa Bay Lightning issued a press release today reporting that 2005 third round pick Chris Lawrence has been signed to a three-year entry level contract.

By signing Lawrence, Tampa avoided losing his rights as he would have been eligible to re-enter the 2007 NHL Entry Draft on June 1 had he not come to terms with the Lightning.
