Damian Crisdotero of the St. Pete Times is reporting that the AHL has suspended RW Steve Downie indefinitely for abuse of officials. Downie was ejected from the Hershey game last night for intentionally slashing a linesman in the shin on a faceoff. Norfolk GM Mike Butters defended the young forward claiming that Downie was merely trying to hit the stick of the opposing centerman in the faceoff circle, and that it was unclear to him based on replays if Downie even hit the official at all on the play. The league will review the incident, but is unlikely to address the situation until Tuesday.
Fadden gets the best of Tokarski before nearly every player was thrown out of the game ... DeCoste keeps his point streak alive ... Jung and Edmonton get a point but drop one too.

Luca's back ... DeCoste and Wright extend streaks ... Fadden continues his ridiculous run ... a snowman and goose egg for Tokarski and Spokane.
