Finishing up a tough three games in four days segment the Albany Devils, struggling to score goals, made a furious comeback to get a point Monday night at the Times Union Center.

Leading 2-1 after two periods the Devils relinquished that lead and fell behind 4-2.  Thanks to a first period tally by Chad Wiseman and a second period goal by Tim Sestito the Devils led 2-1 going to the break.

However the Norfolk Admirals came storming back scoring three times in the first 3:11 of period three. Norfolk’s Peter Holland scored once and Kyle Palmieri lit the lamp twice in the third period barrage.

However the Devils, struggling for some scoring, fought back hard. Trailing 4-2, Matt Anderson scored with 7.17 left to make it a one goal game. Then Adam Larsson, a top prospect with the parent Devils scored his first goal of the season with 3:27 left in regulation to tie the game at four goals apiece.

Neither team could break through in the five minute overtime so off to a shootout they went where once again the Devils fell short. Norfolk got two pucks past Devils netminder Jeff Frazee to a lone score by Albany. Norfolk gets the two points while the Devils got one point.

For those with the glass half full mindset, the shootout loss and point means Albany picked up four points out of a possible six in the last three games, all played in four days.

The Devils now hit the road for back to back Friday and Saturday games against  the St.Johns Ice Caps. Both contests start at 6:05 p.m.
