Tampa Bay Lightning's Norfolk affiliate wins 19th straight, sets AHL overall win-streak mark

NORFOLK, Va. — Lightning AHL affiliate Norfolk set the league overall winning-streak record Friday night with its 19th consecutive victory, 2-1 over Albany.

Syracuse won 18 straight over two seasons, 15 to end 2007-08 and three to open 2008-09. Norfolk's 18th straight wins had set the AHL's season record.

The Admirals (46-18-3) fell behind Albany on a power-play goal at 14:14 of the first period, but Jean-Philippe Cote tied the score at 1 18 seconds later. Tyler Johnson gave Norfolk the lead in the second, and Jaroslav Janus, who had 26 saves, made it stand up.

Norfolk, the AHL's No. 1 team, can extend its streak tonight when it again meets Albany.
