The Worcester Sharks were caught sleepwalking again early in a game as they surrendered three goals on the first five shots against in route to a 7-2 loss to the Norfolk Admirals Saturday night at The Scope in Norfolk, Virginia in front of 3330 fans.

WorSharks scratches were Thomas Greiss, Kevin Henderson, Joe Loprieno, Tony Lucia, and Cam MacIntyre. Carter Hutton started the game on the bench, but after starting goaltender Alex Stalock was pulled at 4:11 of the first (2 saves on 5 shots) Hutton saw his first action in a WorSharks jersey (47 saves on 51 shots in 55:49).

Sharkspage is still checking the numbers, but it appears that Nick Petrecki set a team record by going (-5) in the contest. Petrecki also took a bad slashing minor in the second period, which Norfolk scored on. His defensive partner Jay Leach was spared a share of the potential record because he was sitting in the penalty box after fighting Mathieu Roy and was not on the ice during the NorAds final goal. Leach was on the ice for a power play goal against, but a minus isn’t awarded while shorthanded.

The three stars of the game were
1. NOR – 90 Johan Harju (2g,a)
2. NOR – 12 Paul Szczechura (2g)
3. NOR – 9 Blair Jones (2a)

The Sharkspage player of the game was Carter Hutton.
