Houghtaling stole my game headline...
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for the OT loss. His save percentage has dipped just a shade below .900 at .897 as he continues to adapt to North American hockey. He'll get there, Lightning fans. Breath.
SYR Cote, (1) (Angelidis, Ikonen), 3:51
SYR Marchessault, (4) (Nesterov, Blunden), 6:51 (PP)
NOR Kerdiles, (2) (Leblanc), 15:18
NOR Wagner, (6) (Yip, Bell), 19:43
SYR Angelidis, (2) (Samson, Dotchin), 1:02
NOR Cramarossa, (2) (McIver), 6:44 (SH)
NOR Theodore, (1) (Cramarossa), 2:01
Mike Angelidis and J.P. Cote were the game's second and third stars.
Syracuse established themselves in the game with a good First Period, but were outshot 24-14 and outscored 3-1 thereafter. Not good, with Nikita Nesterov wearing the goat horns on Norfolk's OT winner.
The two teams will matchup again tomorrow.
