NORFOLK, Va. - Alexandre Picard broke open a 1-1 tie in the second period and the Norfolk Admirals beat the Toronto Marlies 4-2 in Game 2 of the Calder Cup final Saturday.

The win gives the Admirals a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven American Hockey League final which moves to Toronto for games on Thursday, Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday.

Richad Panik, Brandon Segal and Trevor Smith also scored for the Admirals.

Joe Colborne and Juraj Mikus, in the game's final minute, replied for Toronto.

Colborne scored on a first-period power play for the Marlies, who had gone 0 for 10 with a man advantage in Friday's Game 1 and failed to score in their first try on Saturday.

Dustin Tokarski turned back 30 of 32 shots for Norfolk, which has given up only five goals in its past eight playoff games, dating back to Game 5 against Connecticut in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Tokarski is 10-2 in this season's playoffs.
