Boleslav continues its quest to climb out of last place.
Sointu is still out.
And Tukonen gets shelved as well...
The Lightning's blueline injury problems extend all the way to Slovakia, apparently.

Tonight was another another game the Admirals simply could not lose to get back into the playoff hunt.

Justin Keller was named the second star of the game. Brandon Segal, who was named to the AHL All-Star Game earlier in the day, chipped in a helper.
Norfolk sinks to 5 games under .500 with 36 games left to play. More importantly, they sit 13 points behind Binghamton for the final playoff spot in the division. 0-2-2 in the last 4 games is not what the plan was for this homestand.
