First, Mathieu Darche seems to have instantly resurrected Norfolk's offense, which is a hopeful sign.
Second, the continual allowance of shorthanded goals has to end. Norfolk wins this game in a walk if they just take care of the puck with the man advantage.
Third, where are the kids? The Lightning's prospects need not idley take a back seat to the vets.
