Norfolk holds off IceCats

Adam Munro made 23 saves and Travis Moen and Mike Brown scored 29 seconds apart midway through the second period as Norfolk took a 3-1 decision from Worcester on Wednesday afternoon at Scope.

Former IceCat Eric Nickulas added an empty-net goal for the Admirals, who moved to within two points of division-leading Binghamton in the East.

Norfolk prevailed despite a combined zero shots on goal from its top four scorers — Rene Bourque, Matt Keith, Matt Ellison and Pavel Vorobiev.

Moen and Nickulas each finished with a goal and an assist.

Peter Sejna scored the only goal for Worcester, tying for the league lead with his fifth shorthanded score of the year.
