Magwood Nets Two, but Ads Fall
Milwaukee, WI—Zach Magwood scored his first two professional goals for the Admirals, including the Jockey Being Family Teddy Bear Toss Goal, as the team earned a point in an 3-2 OT loss to the Rockford IceHogs on Friday night.
Despite the loss the Admirals extended their point-streak to six games (4-0-2).
The game-winner came from Rockford’s Darren Raddysh at 3:33 of OT after a delayed penalty was whistled on the Admirals and IceHogs goalie Anton Forsberg out of the net. The irony of that goal was the two teams combined to go 0-for-12 on the power-play during the game.
Magwood’s first goal of the game came with just under six minutes to play in the first period and triggered an avalanche of over teddy bears to cover the Panther Arena ice. He carried the puck off the half-wall before beating Rockford goalie Anton Forsberg shortside for a 1-0 Milwaukee lead.
The Icehogs would tie the game up later in the first period on Dylan Sikura’s third goal of the season.
The second goal of the night for Magwood came 4:20 into the second frame as he took a pretty feed from Justin Kirkland and buried his attempt from the slot to put the Admirals back on top, but Raddysh tied the game up with a slapper from the right circle with 7:59 left in regulation.
The Admirals hit the road for a quick swing around the lake where they will take on the Grand Rapids Griffins on Saturday night at 6 pm CT. Milwaukee returns to home ice on Wednesday morning in their first of two Baird School Day Games, featuring 8,000 students for a 10:30 am puck drop against the Chicago Wolves.
