AHL Game Night: 2-12-12 Admirals at Checkers
3 games. 3 nights. 3 wins.
Jaroslav Janus was fantastic, stopping 33 of 34 en route to the victory. He held the door closed in a first period where Norfolk was outshot 17-8 and really gave his club the chance to win tonight. That's what you need from your goalie on the 3rd game in 3 nights.

Norfolk's win coupled with Hershey's win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today tightens up the East Division race to a log jam of 3 teams within 2 points of first place with Hershey 1 point back of the Pens and the Ads 2 points behind the Pens. Norfolk can forge a tie for the division lead on Wednesday night when they travel to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Big game.
