The Lightning wins the first half of their AHL/NHL battle with the Columbus organization.
Correction: Columbus' affiliation with Syracuse ended last season. Syracuse is now the Ducks' affiliate.
Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 20 shots for the victory. And, just like that, Tic has a three game winning streak at just the right time with Cedrick Desjardins going on the shelf due to injury.
NOR Milam, (8) (Jones, Szczechura), 2:47
SYR Bonino, (4) (Paetsch, Green), 7:55 (PP)
NOR Gudas, (3) (Szczechura, Wright), 0:47
Radko Gudas, Troy Milam, and Tokarski were the game's three stars. Gudas is riding a three game points streak to go along with his ever-impressive plus/minus statistics.
Norfolk moves four points ahead of Charlotte again in second place in the East Division, nine points behind first place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, which had opened as big as a thirteen point advantage recently.
