Milwaukee, WI—Cole Schneider scored the Admirals lone goal as they saw their three game winning streak snapped in a 2-1 loss to the Grand Rapids Griffins on Tuesday night at Panther Arena.
The game was over half-way through before the Griffins took a 1-0 lead on unusual power-play goal. Cross Hanas dumped the puck into the Milwaukee zone and Ads goalie Yaroslav Askarov went behind the net to retrieve it. However, the puck took an odd bounce off the boards and went right in front of the net where Jacob Vrana had a wide open cage.
The Admirals pulled Yaroslav Askarov in favor of an extra attacker with three minutes to go in the game, but the Griffins were able to get an empty netter from Elmer Soderblom for a 2-0 advantage at 17:18 of the third.
However, the Ads still battled andgot on the scoreboard when Schneider found a loose puck after a scrum in front of Grand Rapids goalie Alex Nedelijkovic and push it past his right pad for his 16th goal of the season.
That was as close as Milwaukee would get in the final two minutes as the dropped the contests.
The Admirals look to get back on the winning track as they continue their season-long six-game homestand with a pair of games this weekend with the Manitoba Moose beginning Friday night at 7 pm at Panther Arena.
