Hogs Squeak by Admirals
Milwaukee, WI--Jack Dougherty and Vladislav Kamenev each scored goals for Milwaukee, but it wasn't enough as the Admirals dropped their second games in as many nights with a 4-2 loss to Rockford at Panther Arena.
After getting shutout on Friday night, the Ads were able to get one on the board mid-way through the first period. Mike Ribeiro found a streaking Dougherty in the slot and he directed the puck over the glove hand of Rockford goalie Jeff Glass for a 1-0 Milwaukee lead.
Rockford would respond with the next two goals with former Admiral Michael Latta scoring the first and assisting on Anthony Louis' goal at 9:32.
Vladislav Kamenev tied things up for Milwaukee with a wrister from the top of the left circle that had just enough on it to get through Glass' legs. Kamenev's 19th of the year came with 11:03 left in the sandwich frame.
The Hogs would regain the lead 6:12 into the third period on a rebound goal by Brandon Mashinter.
The Ads had some good chances to tie the game up in the third and had 45 seconds of 6-on-4 time coming after Rockford took a too many men on the ice penalty. However, just after the face-off Ville Pokka sent the puck the length of the ice into an empty net to ice the game at 4-2.
Marek Mazanec finished the night with 38 saves, but suffered the loss.
The Admirals finish up the weekend by making the long trek to Des Moines for a 5 pm game Sunday afternoon against the Wild. The Ads return home on Friday, April 14 at 7 pm against the Hogs.
