Norfolk held a 2-1 lead heading into the third period before surrendering 3 straight goals to Springfield in the first 9:22 of the final frame.
Blair Jones  earned second star honors in the game with 1 goal and 2 assists in the contest. Mike Egener , who seriously is taking well to his conversion to forward, had 1 goal and 1 assist and Kyle Wanvig, the third member of that line, had 2 assists.
The Admirals finish their season opening road trip at 1-3. They head home for two games against Binghamton next weekend (which I shall attend).
