Ads Season Ends in Chicago
Rosemont, IL--The Admirals closed out the 2014-15 season with a 4-3 shootout loss to the Chicago Wolves Saturday night.
It took seven shooters a side for either team to score. Chicago’s Terry Broadhurst was the only player to put the puck into the net during the shootout to send the Wolves to the victory.
Milwaukee scored the first goal of the game at 13:42 of the first period. Mike Liambas’ shot from the left point was steered aside by Wolves goalie Jordan Binnington. Admirals forward Zach Budish snatched the loose puck and slid a pass from behind the net to Mark Van Guilder who tapped in his 11th goal of the season.
Chicago tied the game at 13:27 of the second. Milwaukee had just finished killing two 5-on-3 Chicago power plays but the Wolves Colton Parayko sent a shot from the right wing boards off Admirals defenseman Joe Piskula’s left skate into the net to tie the score.
Admirals forward Viktor Arvidsson reclaimed the lead for his team when he scored a wrap-around goal just 14 seconds after the Wolves tally. Arvidsson’s 22nd goal of the season was assisted by Jimmy Oligny and Pontus Aberg.
The Wolves tied the game with seven seconds left in the second period when Broadhurst skated behind the Admirals defense and tipped a Robby Fabbri pass into the net for his eighth goal of the season.
Milwaukee center Colton Sissons scored his 25th goal of the season with a strong move to the net from the left circle just :49 into the third period. Austin Watson and Rich Clune notched the helpers. Sissons became the first Admirals player in the team’s AHL history to record back-to-back 25-goal seasons to start his career.
Chicago forward Colin Fraser intercepted a pass at the Chicago blue line and scored on a breakaway with a shot from the slot at 3:41 of the third period to tie the score once again.
Milwaukee finished the 2014-15 season with a record of 33-28-8-7. The team did not qualify for the Calder Cup Playoffs.
