    Florida won their seventh in a row despite a goose egg on the scoreboard from the ECHL’s leading scorer, Mitch Fadden. Fadden saw his point streak ended at seven games, though he did score in the shootout. Alex Hutchings could not build on his four point night last time out, and failed to convert his shootout attempt. With the win, the Everblades pulled within two points of Greenville for the South Division lead at 16-9-0-0. Greenville has two games in hand on Florida.

    Norfolk's rally nets them a point.

    SYR-4
    NOR-3 (OT)

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 4 goals on 30 shots for the overtime loss.

    First Period
    SYR Sexton, (3) (Paetsch), 5:47 (PP)

    Overtime
    SYR Green, (4) , 2:50

    Marc-Antoine Pouliot was named the game's second star. On the one hand, the game continues the troubling trend of the Admirals being a better road team than a home team. On the other, any time you can steal a point when you're down three goals entering the final frame, you've accomplished something. That should be a death sentence in professional hockey.

    Congratulations to Pierre-Cedric Labrie on signing a two-year AHL deal with the Admirals this year. It's well deserved.

    Norfolk is now 7 points back of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for first place in the East Division, with the Pens holding a game in hand. Friday begins a critical home-and-home series against the Penguins, after which the Admirals could be as close as 3 points to the Penguins in the standings or as far back as 11 points.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 3 @ Kitchener Rangers 4

    Season totals: 30 GP, 14-21-35, -1, 33 PIM

    Season totals: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM

    The Lightning looked flat and unprepared to play in the first period.

    TB-2
    CGY-4

    Dan Ellis allowed 4 goals on 19 shots on another night where his save percentage ends up being absolutely putrid.

    First Period
    07:21 CGY Sarich (1), Pardy (1), Morrison (13)
    13:46 CGY Kostopoulos (2), Bourque (9), Giordano (11)

    Second Period
    04:43 CGY Bourque (12), Glencross (5), Backlund (3)
    08:35 TB Harju (1), Kubina (6), Jones (7)
    19:00 TB Malone (8), Thompson (7), Hedman (10)

    Third Period
    08:42 CGY Iginla (12), Bouwmeester (8), Bourque (10)(PP)

    Ryan Malone was the game's third star.

    It shouldn't take 5 goals to win a hockey game where you hold an opponent down to 19 shots, and allowing a long point shot from Cory Sarich to beat you might be grounds for an NHL goaltender to be fired. Halley's Comet visits more frequently than Sarich scores goals.

    Mattias Ritola was +1 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 13:28. I stand by my statement about the guy being soft along the wall. He's exceptionally bad on the forecheck for a guy who's otherwise fairly good in the defensive third.

    Johan Harju dialed up a five-hole goal on Kiprusoff and was +1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 8:41. The goal was Harju's first in the NHL. I think Kipper may have been baiting Harju to go five-hole and didn't realize Johan's got quite a quick release on his shot.

    Dana Tyrell was +1 with 2 shots in 12:26. He worked himself into a shorthanded breakaway on one shift in the game. He still needs to work on his shot, but with his speed he will be a terror on the PK in the near future.

    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP

    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 2-4-6, +3, 16 PIM

    It was a tough game for Dmitri Kazionov, who was -1 in 13:56 and a dismal 7.7% on 13 draws in Kazan's 5-4 shootout loss to Chekhov. Ex-NHLer Marcel Hossa had 1 goal and 3 points in the loss for Kazan.

    Cherepovets 4 @ Dynamo Minsk 5 (OT)
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, OTL, 21/26, 4.92 GAA, .808 sv%

    Vermont Catamounts 1 @ #5 New Hampshire Wildcats 5
    F Matt Marshall, UVM: 0-0-0, Even, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 11 GP, 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 8
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 4-10-14, +4, 18 PIM

    Janosik’s plus-8 rating for the season was cut in half in one bad night vs. the Titan. Gatineau is third in the TELUS West Division with 42 points, eight behind Charles Landry and Montreal for first.

    Montreal Juniors 5 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 3
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 5-15-20, +11, 6 PIM

    Landry has eight points in his last three games and has registered at least a point in seven of his last eight games. With his two points Sunday, he is quickly approaching point-per-game status. Although his strong play didn’t show on the scoresheet for the Lightning in Traverse City, Steve Yzerman and company saw enough in the undrafted defenseman to sign him to an entry level contract. He had a slow start to the season, but has come on very strong since missing a few games due to an injury. The Lightning may have a legitimate prospect here.

    OHL

    Owen Sound Attack 7 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +4, 2 PIM (interference)
    Season totals: 21 GP, 1-11-12, +15, 6 PIM
    D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 26 GP, 0-4-4, -13, 42 PIM

    After being down 2-1 to start the third period, the Attack exploded for three goals in each of the final frames to beat the Soo. Beukeboom’s minus-1 rating was tied for second best on the team Sunday. Schemitsch’s plus-4 was second on the Attack.

    Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5 @ Guelph Storm 6
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (high sticking)
    With Guelph: 2 GP, 0-3-3, +1, 2 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, -1, 31 PIM
    Season totals: 29 GP, 14-20-34, E, 33 PIM

    This was a huge win for Guelph against the league’s top team. The Majors have only lost three games all season.

    Windsor Spitfires 6 @ Oshawa Generals 3
    G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
    Season Totals: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador sat on the bench for all three games this weekend. Predators first rounder Ryan Ellis had a goal, two assists, and a plus-4 night for Windsor.

    Vernace pushes Norfolk to a 5-1-0 finish to their 6 game road trip.

    NOR-3
    SPR-2 (OT)

    Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory. He's getting a little stronger now. He's been at .917 or better in three of his last four starts in the save percentage department.

    First Period
    SPR Blunden, (10) (Goloubef), 14:27 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Vernace, (4) (Durno, Marks), 18:01

    Third Period
    NOR Berry, (7) (Jones, Vernace), 11:35 (PP)
    SPR Pandolfo, (2) (Clitsome, Goloubef), 19:40

    Overtime
    NOR Vernace, (5) (Jones, Durno), 1:43 (PP)

    Michael Vernace was the game's first star with 2 goals and 3 points, including the overtime winner.

    Norfolk moves to within 6 points of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with the Penguins holding a game in hand. Here's an interesting statistic: Norfolk has played 18 games on the road already and just 7 games at home. That means that with only about a quarter of the season gone, the club has already played almost half of its games away from The Scope. They have a ridiculous .722 winning percentage on the road, and just a .571 winning percentage at home. The team will have a glut of home games to play during the second half of the season, and if they can start winning at home at the same clip they do on the road, they've got a great chance of winning their division.
