Even with Lundin, the Admirals defense remains a sieve.

Steve Downie and Justin Keller were the game's second and third stars.

Downie is reacting just like you would hope a guy who has just been sent down would: like a guy who has gotten a taste of the show and wants to get back. Mike Lundin had an assist in his Norfolk debut. Chris Gratton is in Norfolk, but did not suit up for the Ads.

Keller Recalled to Norfolk

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned forward Justin Keller to the Norfolk Admirals from the ECHL's Augusta Lynx, Admirals General Manager Mike Butters announced today.

Keller, 22, is a 6'0", 181-pound forward from Nelson, British Columbia. He was originally assigned from Norfolk to Augusta on October 22 and put up four goals and an assist in four games with the Lynx. In two games for Norfolk to begin this season, the third-year pro registered one assist.

Keller was one of just three players with a Lightning NHL contract that was not invited to this year's training camp, and has struggled to distinguish himself with the new forward depth in the Tampa system that the new club ownership has acquired. In two prior professional seasons with Norfolk and Springfield, Keller has scored 28 goals and 23 assists in 130 AHL games played. Keller's three-year entry-level contract expires at the end of this season.

ECHL Game Night 11/5: Lynx at Sea Wolves

Justin Keller returned to the lineup for the Lynx scoring 55 seconds into the game and leading a 4 goal first goal 1st period as Augusta cruised to a 6-3 road victory over the Mississippi Sea Wolves. Keller fired a game high 9 shots and added an assist. Kevin Quick tallied 2 assists and was +2 and Riku Helenius stopped 40 of 43 shots for the win. The hometown media deserves an eyebrow raise for naming two Sea Wolves to the game's three stars.

Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 31 shots for his first regulation loss of the season.
