Milwaukee Loses in an "Old Fashioned" Shootout
Nov 22, 2008
Andreas Thuresson scored twice Saturday in Des Moines, IA, but the Chops proved to have too much firepower as Iowa beat the Admirals in a see-saw matchup 8-6.
Both teams had stretches when they scored four consecutive goals.
The Admirals got on the board first due to another good forecheck from the line of Nick Spaling, Triston Grant and Thuresson. Spaling retrieved the puck on the left wing boards in the chop zone and, while being hit, sent a pass behind the net for Grant. Grant found Thuresson in the slot where his wrist shot beat Chops goalie David LeNeveu for his fourth goal of the season.
Iowa tied the game at 7:28 when Ryan Dingle intercepted a clearing attempt at the left point. He carried the puck to the left circle where he fired a shot that was stopped. The rebound came to Eric Boguniecki on the left post for an easy tap-in.
The Chops took the lead at 17:20 when Francis Wathier put his own rebound into the net. Iowa grabbed a two goal lead when Joakim Lindstrom’s shot from the left point went over MacIntyre’s right shoulder. The third goal was a power play tally.
Iowa picked up where it left off in the second period as T.J. Trevelyan scored a power play goal at 1:30 to make the score 4-1.
Milwaukee shaved the lead at 6:31 of the second period when Cal O’Reilly’s slapshot from the left circle was tipped in by Mark Santorelli. It was Mark Santorelli’s first career goal and point. O’Reilly and Alex Sulzer notched the helpers.
The Chops scored the next two, however, and chased MacIntyre with 7:50 left in the second period in favor of Mark Dekanich.
With Iowa up 6-2, Milwaukee scored the next three goals in a span of 2:48. First, Thuresson banged in a rebound of a T.J. McElroy slapshot for his second goal of the night and fifth of the season at 13:34. McElroy and Robert Dietrich picked up the assists.
Milwaukee’s Mike Santorelli scored a power play goal, his second goal of the season, to get the Admirals within two at 15:23. Cody Franson and O’Reilly picked up the assists.
Patric Hornqvist completed the scoring in the second period after O’Reilly found him in the slot for a wrist shot. It was Hornqvist’s first with the Admirals. Antti Pihlstrom joined O’Reilly in the assist column on the marker.
Nolan Yonkman tied the game for the Admirals at 11:35 of the third period when he crashed the net and banged in a rebound of a shot by Ryan Jones. Kelsey Wilson also picked up an assist. It was Yonkman's first goal in two seasons.
The Chops scored twice in a span of 35 seconds to ice the win. Josh Green tallied his second of the night at 16:45 and Matt Beleskey scored at 17:20 to close it out.
The Admirals return to the Bradley Center Wednesday to host the Peoria Rivermen. Faceoff is at 7 p.m.
