Bracken Kearns, Jamie Bates, and Brandon Segal were named the game's three stars. Bates, 23, was signed to an ATO contract today out of Quinnipiac University. Bates scored 123 points in his 4 year career at Quinnipiac, including 34 points in 34 games this season.

Can we get the rest of the organization's forwards on what Radek Smolenak and Michel Ouellet have been eating the last month or so? Mercy.

Dana Tyrell has 3 assists now in his 5 ATO games with the Admirals. Not bad for a 19 year old.

Chris Lawrence's goal was his first since November 30, 2007. The linebackeresque forward now has 1 goal and 6 points in his last 8 games. Lawrence missed a month and a half in January and February with a shoulder injury.

Tonight's win was Norfolk's 26th of the season, two shy of Springfield's total from last season. The win gave the team their 58th and 59th points of the season, which ties the Falcons' point total from last season.

AHL Game Day 3/2: Admirals at Sharks

Third period comeback effort falls short.

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

NOR Henrich, (10) (Lawrence), 11:51
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

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.

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.
