Decisive Game 5 is Monday
Milwaukee, WI—The Admirals will play host to the Iowa Wild on Monday night in a winner-take-all game five of their Central Division Semifinal series. Puck drop is slated for 7 pm at Panther Arena.
The Wild won the first two games of the series, outscoring the Admirals 13-1 in two games in Des Moines. However, with their backs to the wall the Admirals gutted out two gutsy wins back in Milwaukee, defeating Iowa 3-1 on Thursday night in game three and then 5-4 in overtime on Friday night, courtesy of Freddy Allard’s goal at 12:33 of OT.

This will be the eighth winner-take-all game for the Admirals since the team joined the AHL in 2001. The Ads have posted a 3-4 record in the previous seven. The last time they played in one was back in the second round of their 2011 Calder Cup Playoffs when they dropped a 4-2 decision in game 7 to the Houston Aeros, who were also the Minnesota Wild affiliate at the time.
The winner of game five will take on the Chicago Wolves, who beat Grand Rapids in game 5 of their series on Sunday afternoon.
