Sluggish Start Leads to Bad End
MILWAUKEE – The Admirals gave up four first period goals and couldn't dig their way out and fell to the Chicago Wolves 5-2 during an Amtrak rivalry game hosted by the Ads at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Chicago’s Alex Friesen was able to get a tip past Jeremy Smith at 6:06 to start off the goals for the game. Chicago tallied another goal at 8:49 by Bill Sweatt while the Admirals were on the penalty kill. At 12:50 of the first Guillaume Desbiens gave the Wovles a 3-0 lead and, immediately after a Milwaukee time-out Michael Davies tipped a shot past Smith at 14:26 to make it 4-0.
Chicago’s Eric Kattelus scored a power-play marker for his first AHL goal at 4:41 of the second period to pump the lead to five.
Milwaukee finally got on the board at 11:06 of the second when Mark Van Guilder received a pass from Kevin Henderson just outside the post and scored short handed.
Cam Reid was able to snag his first goal of the season after tipping in a shot delivered from Mike Moore at 7:16 but that was as close as the Ads could get despite outshooting Chicago 23-6 in the third period.
