AHL Game Night 11/30: Admirals at River Rats

Considering they only had one good period, getting a point is probably the best the Ads could expect.

NOR-3
ALB-4 (OT)

Jonathan Boutin stopped 35 of 39 shots in the overtime loss. Norfolk was outshot 39-26 in the game.

First Period

Third Period

Norfolk is two points out of the final playoff spot in the division with Binghamton holding 2 games in hand, so tomorrow night's game against the Senators has some obvious importance. Rumors last week placed a possible Karri Ramo return for the game tomorrow night, but seeing as Karl Goehring dressed as the backup tonight that remains to be seen.
