  1. The Admirals defeated Chicago in a shoot out 3-2. The game ended with Saros stopping Brett (Squirrel Face) Sterling, who should have retired. The Amtrak series so far: Admirals 4, Chicago 1 point with 10 games remaining.Adam Payerl had 3 penalties for Milwaukee, of the 9 called against them. Milwaukee gave up 1 PPG and scored 2 PPGs on 5 chances. Chicago was called for 5 penalties, with none in the third period. The Admirals looked like garbage in the 3-on-3 OT, but so did Chicago! Maybe that rule change should go back to a 4-on-4. What I didn't like about the game. In the third period, Liambas was called for boarding. Okay, he did it and it should have been called. But, seconds later and after the whistle, Barbashyov gets away with the same kind of hit on Dougherty, in the same corner of the rink! No penalty was called. I think the AHL should look into that hit for a suspension. Chicago got away with an unbelievable amount of clutch and grab in the third period and the two refs called nothing on them. Pontus Aberg was put into a headlock in the southeast corner and kept in it for at least 5 seconds as the puck slid away. One ref was 10 feet away and looking right at it. The other side of the rink had an elbow in the teeth as a way to take the puck from an Admiral. No call on that either. A Chicago player even clubbed a linesman over the head with his stick. (I believe that he mistook him for an Admiral) The man was down for 15 or 20 seconds. No call. The Chicago player was laughing about it. The linesman looked dazed after he got up off the ice.
  2. First, there is a Ferraro playing in the AHL! Landon is playing for Chicago. He used to be with Grand Rapids. Second, Milwaukee defeated the Wolves 2-1 in Chicago. Third. All three Milwaukee games and wins this season have been 2-1 victories. That may be the strangest of the three facts presented. Good luck to you AHL fans and your respective teams!
  3. I was reading recent press releases from the Admirals re. their move from Bradley Center across the street to Panther Arena. It appears that several of the facility upgrades underway will be an improvement for players, with a few other changes aimed at the fans. I visited BMO-Bradley for one Ads game a couple of seasons ago but I've never been inside Panther Arena, so I was wondering how the local fans have been reacting to the switch. I know from other hockey towns changing buildings (or more often changing teams/leagues) that one of the big hurdles is how the current ticket holders are accommodated. So I'd also like to hear some opinions whether the Admirals' plans to offer seating options in the new building are working out.
  4. Milwaukee defeated the Iowa Wild 2-0 tonight. The Admirals are the first team to win 30 games in the Western Conference this season! The Ads came into the game with a .663 winning percentage, good enough for third place behind Ontario at .667 and Rockford at .670. The Wild are in 14th place in the Western Conference, but they always play their best against Milwaukee regardless of records. Milwaukee had 14K fans officially tonight. The weather was bad. I think that about 11 or 12K were actually present.
  5. Milwaukee has clinched their division with 3 games remaining. Tonight, they host their Amtrak rivals the Chicago Wolves. The Ads have been 8-3 against the Wolves so far this season. The series record and their respective positions have been flipped from last season when Milwaukee missed the playoffs for the second time in their 15 year AHL history. Milwaukee (47-21-3-2) has 99 points and 0.678 winning percentage versus sixth place Chicago at 31-34-5-3 with 70 points and a 0.479 percentage. The Admirals have a few fresh faces to get into the line up tonight. They have a chance to catch the Ontario Reign, (43-18-4-1) with 91 points and a 0.689 winning percentage, to be Western Conference regular season champs. If the Admirals win out, they will hit 50 wins and 105 points. On Friday, the Admirals host the Bakersfield Condors, (28-28-7-2) with 65 points and a 0.500 winning percentage, for the first and only time in BMO Harris Bradley Center history. Next season, the Admirals move back across the street to the UW Milwaukee Panthers Arena. Milwaukee finishes the season on Saturday night at division rival and playoff qualifier Rockford (37-22-10-4) with 88 points and 0.603 winning percentage.
  6. Milwaukee trailed Texas 3-1 halfway through the third period. The Admirals scored two PPGs, the last one with 6 seconds remaining, to tie the game. Milwaukee had 40 shots in regulation and another six in OT. The Admirals prevailed 2-1 in four rounds of shoot out to win 4-3. Texas goalie John Muse looked like an NHL goalie. A lesser player would have let in three in the first period. Vladislav Kamenev scored Milwaukee's first 2 goals, both assisted by Kevin Fiala. The sad part was that the game was played in front of about 400 fans. This game was moved from Dec 4 for an Amy Schumer appearance. It was also the first World Series game, currently in the 13th inning.

  8. Milwaukee has made the playoffs every AHL year but their first one. They seemed to fall apart after the Leipsic trade to Toronto. That same team comes to town Friday night before a huge end of the season crowd. This could be ugly!
  9. Milwaukee was down a goal late in the game versus Grand Rapids last night. The Griffins came in with a nine game winning streak. Then lightning struck and the Admirals scored at the end of the game of the game to tie it. The same cloud fired again at 15 seconds into the overtime period. It was the game of the year in Milwaukee! Viktor Stalberg scored a hat trick for Milwaukee, but it was a team effort to defeat the surging team from Grand Rapids.
  10. Milwaukee won at home last night, 4-3 over the Iowa Wild. It was Milwaukee's 9th win in a row. The old record was 8 wins in a row for the IHL Admirals in 1989. This came after a slump from around Thanksgiving to January 2 where Milwaukee had 3 wins in 15 games. The All Star Game will interrupt the Admirals playing for awhile, until Friday January 30th.
  11. Milwaukee was able to defeat the division leading Rockford IceHogs on the road. It was former Admiral goaltender Scott Darling's first game against Milwaukee and his first defeat this season. It was Rockford's first loss in nine games. Goaltender Magnus Hellberg had his fourth victory of the season in his fourth start for Milwaukee. Miikka Salomaki scored two PP goals and defenseman Taylor Aronson scored his first AHL goal and had three assists for the Admirals. Rockford is now 10-3-0-1 and remains in first place with 21 points and Milwaukee is 9-3-0-0 in third place with 18 points in the Midwest Division. The teams play tonight in Milwaukee in a key game between the divisional rivals.
  12. It was a strange game tonight in Milwaukee. The Admirals scored on a fluky goal 6 minutes into the game. Some hard work led to a second goal about 6 minutes later, from just outside the crease, like the first goal. Then the rough stuff started. Grand Rapids defenseman Brennan Evans (6'4", 230 lbs) came across the defensive circle and hit Milwaukee center Felix Girard (5'11", 192 lbs) in the head with a shoulder after the puck was gone. Rich Clune skated down the ice and started fighting with Evans. The linesmen jumped in right away. The results: Clune gets 2, 5 and 10 minutes. Evans gets 5 minutes and nothing for the hit to the head. Girard was laying stunned on the ice in the slot during the festivities. Referee Kendrick Nicholson saw the whole sequence of events from 30 feet away. I couldn't believe that he didn't call the hit to the head! Milwaukee scored a third goal at 13:30 of the second period. At 14:08 Evans hit Viktor Stalberg with a low hipcheck. Stalberg lands in a heap and can't get up. He looked like he had an injured knee. As Stalberg was laying on the ice, Jonathon Diaby skates up and starts fighting with Evans. As the linesmen pull the two apart, Evans tries to loop a shot over the linesmen and hit Diaby. The results: Diaby gets 2, 5 and 10 minutes from Referee Kendrick Nicholson. Evans get 5 minutes for fighting. Two Admirals and the trainer came off of the bench to help Stalberg and his equipment get off the ice after the fight ended. Stalberg never returned to the game. Two minutes later, Mike Liambas is coming off of the ice and has some choice words for Referee Nicholson. Liambas get a 10 minute misconduct. About 5 minutes into period 3, Chris Bruton throws down his gloves and wants to fight Rich Clune. Clune just turns and skates away, leaving Bruton standing alone by the blue line. Mike Liambas skates by, says something to Bruton, circles back and drops his gloves. Liambas started fast and kept hitting Bruton. Referee Andrew Thackaberry called Bruton for 2 minutes unsportsmanlike and 5, Liambas for 5 minutes. Halfway through the period, Evans has the puck about 5 feet from the boards just above the hashmarks. Brendan Leipsic, the leading scorer for Milwaukee, all of 5'9" and 170 pounds, hammers Evans from behind. Referee Kendrick Nicholson immediately calls a penalty. (Note: There were plenty of borderline calls that were never made in this game, I was digusted by this call) It was announced as boarding, but the game summary says interference. I thought that I heard boarding, but the crowd of 5700 was booing so loudly every time that Evans touched the puck in the third period, that you couldn't hear the PA system! With about 2:30 left in the game, Grand Rapids pulls goalie Tom McCollum. Grand Rapids keeps the puck in the Milwaukee zone with their 6 versus 5 advantage in skaters. Griffins Team Captain Jeff Hoggan and Milwaukee defenseman Jimmy Oligny are parked in front of the Milwaukee goal. They both keep hitting each other with their sticks, a sort of cross checking pas de deux. Oligny drops his gloves and immediately rips off Hoggan's helmet, followed by a flurry of punches. I have never seen a game end with players ignoring the puck, but this game was close to getting out of control a few times in the third period. Milwaukee was able to break out of their zone and score an empty net goal to make it 4-0 on the score board. Evans will be a marked man in every game against Milwaukee for the rest of the season. Evans was on the receiving end of a big hit on almost every shift during the third period. I see why Grand Rapids is in last place. They are weak on offense and defense. They have talent, just not enough to compete. They couldn't beat up an old lady, so stop starting fights you losers! Referee Kendrick Nicholson should be suspended for his inactions during the game. He is clearly an incompetent official.
  13. Milwaukee won at Chicago 3-2 in OT to maintain their undefeated season at 5-0, "tying the best start in franchise history" as per radioman Aaron Sims. The Admirals never trailed in the game despite being outshot by the Wolves, including 7-1 in the overtime session. Chicago (3-0-2) was the first opponent that could match the Milwaukee team speed. All of the Wolves games have been played at home versus 4 of 5 on the road for the Admirals. Next up are two home games for Milwaukee with Lake Erie and Iowa, followed by a game in Chicago and then hosting Chicago on Sunday Nov 2.
  14. Milwaukee had a good team effort, winning 6-3 over a good Charlotte team. Former Admiral Drew MacIntyre was in net. He had ended last season sweeping the Admirals in the playoffs with Toronto. The score after 2 periods was 3-3. The offensive lines tonight: Leipsic-Sissons-Aberg; Salomaki-Van Guilder-Watson; Grant-Girard-Arvidsson; Pendenza-Gaudreau-Budish All four forward lines looked good. They missed a few passes and open corners or Milwaukee would have scored 10 goals tonight. Aberg scored the second goal. He looked like Pavel Bure by skating from his blueline around one player in the neutral zone. Then he crossed the other blueline and passed the puck between the skates of the d-man (Robertson, turning him around) and cut inside of the faceoff dot and flipped the puck through the 5 hole! Aberg was the #1 star, Piskula (+3) was #2. Video courtesy of The Nightman and YouTube. The defense looked good. I saw Bitetto with Piskula. Noonan with Alm and Aronson with Oligny. Mazenec was in goal. Six different Admirals scored including four new guys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=U4syKCfnXQI
  15. It is the middle third of the season, 48 games played. Milwaukee would have the #6 playoff spot in the Western Conference. The team looks like it has given up. I have never seen this from a team with a winning record, currently a .573 winning percentage. The last three games, all at home, have been terrible! Last night, the Admirals lost to Iowa for the first time this season (in 6 games), 3-1. One point out of six at home is unacceptable! Previously, it was Chicago. This season's Wolves are much better than last year's version. Traditionally, the teams hate each other. There have been a bunch of one goal games, but Milwaukee has been on the short end for most of them. The Ads led 2-0 and 3-1 and lost 4-3 in SO. Lifeless against Chicago in the third period at home? The coach may get dragged around behind the Zamboni for this. The first game was against Utica, a 3-0 loss. Utica is the worst team in the conference, .448 even with their 5-3-1-1 recent record. They came out flying and didn't stop. Has anybody else ever seen this by a winning team?
  16. Scott Darling done as a comic, pretty cool! http://beyondthebenches.com/2014/01/02/comic-post/
  17. Milwaukee played two games at Grand Rapids on December 13 and 14, losing 4-2 and 5-0. Grand Rapids had two guys who played like goons in the first game. When you target the knee or head of a player, it leads to trouble. The second game was a debacle for Milwaukee at both ends of the ice. Both games featured three fights, which add up to about half the total for the season for the Admirals. Today is Boxing Day. I expect that the Admirals won't need much provocation to drop the gloves if GR tries to get rough again. The Griffins weakness was taking stupid penalties. If the Admirals can exploit that, they can win against the defending Calder Cup champions. More after the game.
