Admirals Fall to Wolves
Sep 28, 2013
Chicago goaltender Jake Allen (1-0-0) turned away all 27 shots he faced against the Admirals (1-1-0-0), as the Wolves topped Milwaukee 3-0 on Saturday night.
Former American Hockey League Most Valuable Player Corey Locke broke open the scoring for Chicago (1-1-1-0) when he found the back of the net in the beginning of the second period. Left wing Shane Harper sent a breakaway pass up ice during a penalty kill that left Locke alone against Admirals goaltender Magnus Hellberg (1-1-0), whom he beat with a shot over Hellberg’s glove-side shoulder.
Chicago padded its lead late in the third period as left wing Sergey Andronov found a rebound in front of the net and beat Milwaukee goaltender Scott Darling. He made 18 saves after replacing Hellberg, who made 10 saves, midway through the game.
Right wing Mike Davies iced the win with his second goal of the preseason, an empty-net tally with just more than a minute left in the game.
The Admirals open the regular season on Friday, October 11 at the Abbotsford Heat and then will play their home opener on Saturday, October 19th at 7:00 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
