Radek Smolenak with 2 assists after scoring his first AHL goal last night. Do we dare start believing?
Junior Lessard got his first goal and point as an Admiral and Paul Szczechura now has points in each of his first three games with Norfolk. Impressive.
Box score from TheAHL.com.
Johan Holmqvist has tripled his number of career shutouts in the last 48 hours.
Johan Holmqvist stopped 25 of 25 shots faced to post his second shutout in as many nights. Kudos to Torts for going back to him.
