NORFOLK, VA-Jesse Blacker's goal at 2:21 into overtime broke a scoreless tie, and sealed a 1-0 victory for the Norfolk Admirals over the Worcester Sharks in front of a sellout crowd of 8,701 at the Norfolk Scope Saturday night. Norfolk (21-13-1-5, 48 pts) earned the win in the 7th Annual Pink In the Rink Night. John Gibson made 20 saves to earn the shutout win.
Despite the rough affair, the penalty boxes didn't have an occupant until late in the second on a tripping offense by Worcester's Dylan DeMelo. During that ensuing Norfolk power play, Adam Comrie was handed a four-minute double minor for spearing, which gave the Admirals a two-man advantage for 56 seconds.
