Ads Fall to Wolves
Jake Allen stopped 23 shots in net to lead the Chicago Wolves to a 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Admirals Saturday night in Rosemont, IL.
With the win, Chicago clinched a spot in the 2014 Calder Cup playoffs.
Chicago scored the only goal in the first period. Pat Cannone fed a pass from the left wing corner into the slot for charging defenseman Jani Hakanpaa. Hakanpaa’s quick shot was able to get past Admirals goalie Scott Darling at 2:06 of the first frame. It was Hakanpaa’s fourth goal of the season.
Milwaukee tied the game at 7:49 of the second period. Defenseman Scott Valentine cleared the puck from the Milwaukee zone off the left wing wall. Joonas Rask chased it down behind the defense in the bottom of the left Chicago circle and skated to the net where he powered the puck across the goal line. It was Rask’s fourth goal of the season, assisted by Valentine.
The Wolves took the lead at 3:55 of the third period when Derek Nesbitt’s slapshot from the right circle trickled through the legs of Darling and rolled slowly into the net. It was a power play goal for the Wolves’ Nesbitt.
Chicago added empty-net goals at 18:39 from Alexandre Bolduc and at 19:06 from Adam Cracknell to seal the win.
Milwaukee finished the game scoreless in six power play attempts.
