The Chicago Wolves fought back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Milwaukee Admirals 4-2 Sunday afternoon at Allstate Arena.
The loss snapped Milwaukee’s two-game winning streak and capped a weekend in which the Admirals won twice and lost once.
Defenseman Jalen Chatfield slapped a one-timer from the left circle into the goal at 3:25 of the third period to give Chicago its first lead of the game. It was the game-winning goal.
Chicago’s David Gust scored an empty-net goal with 2:43 to play to close the scoring.
Milwaukee took a 2-0 lead early in the first period thanks to a pair of power play goals. Matt Luff scored his second goal of the season from the left circle after the Admirals snapped the puck around in the offensive zone. It was his second power play goal and was assisted by Cole Schneider and Cody Glass.
The Admirals second goal was scored less than a minute later. Luff passed from the left circle to Schneider, who was camped on the left post. Schneider tapped a pass to the slot and Cole Smith blasted it into the net for his second goal of the season and first career power play tally.
The Wolves got on the board at 11:32 of the first period when Artyom Serikov slapped the puck from the left point, after a Maxim Letunov face-off win, over the glove of Admirals netminder Devin Cooley.
Chicago tied the score at 13:51 of the first frame as Max Lajoie tapped in a rebound from the end wall into the net for his first of the year.
Cooley finished with 24 saves in the loss.
The Admirals will host the Manitoba Moose at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena Wed., Nov. 10 at 7 pm.
