Tokarski and Paul Szczechura were the game's first and second stars. I'm very glad Coach Cooper chose to stick with Tic for this start rather than immediately putting Mike Smith in during this conditioning stint. It's great he let the young netminder to continue to build momentum. He's won 4 straight now, including 3 since Desjardins went down to injury.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton lost tonight, so the Admirals will move within 9 points of first in the division, and Charlotte is down late in Springfield, so they may open up to a 4 point lead on third place.
