SAN ANTONIO — Jarred Tinordi scored with 57 seconds remaining in overtime to lift the Milwaukee Admirals to a 3-2 win over the San Antonio Rampage on Friday night at the AT&T Center.
Tinordi’s goal gave the Admirals their first win since a 6-5 victory at Manitoba on Feb. 17.
Milwaukee had a 2-1 shot advantage in overtime before Tinordi took the puck in his own zone, skated through open space down the right wing, cut to the middle and on one deke sent a forehand shot over the blocker side of Rampage netminder Jared Coreau to give the Admirals the win.
Garret Ross (3rd) and Laurent Dauphin (8th) scored regulation goals for the Admirals, while Klim Kostin and Chris Butler had tallies for the Rampage. All four goals in regulation were scored on power play chances - the Admirals were 2-for-7 and the Rampage were 2-for-6.
Ross played in his first game since Dec. 26th, and found the net for the first time since Dec. 11. He got behind the San Antonio penalty kill defense and found a loose puck in the slot to give the Admirals a 1-0 lead at the 5:52 mark of the second. Dauphin added his second goal in an Admirals uniform on a 5-on-3 power play, shooting through a screen to the right side of Coreau to make it 2-0 at the 13:59 mark of the second.
Kostin cut the lead in half at the 10:36 mark of the third, while Butler delivered the game-tying goal with the net empty and six attackers on for the Rampage with 1:44 left in regulation.
San Antonio outshot the Admirals 7-1 in the first 10 minutes, and 29-22 for the game. Troy Grosenick made his return to the crease after missing the last three games and made 27 saves for his 15th win of the season.
The game featured 13 minor penalties - the Rampage committed the first six, while the Admirals had four straight to end regulation.
Milwaukee and San Antonio meet on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. CT in the final game of the Admirals’ seven-game road trip.
