Ads fend off Griffins in 3-2 win

Milwaukee started their three games in three days on the positive side with a 3-2 victory over Grand Rapids.  It wasn’t a pretty game for either side but the Ads defense and goal-tending stepped up and earned two points on the road

Dekanich played well in his first game since being recalled to the Ads and made crucial saves in the closing minutes.  Dekanich ended the night with 24 saves.

Linus Klasen scored the game winner for the Ads after a sloppy first period.

The Ads led after the first period 2-1 and carried that lead into the third.  Three minutes into the third Griffins Jan Mursak scored a shorthanded breakaway goal off of a Blum mistake.

Couple things that stand out from this game:

Ads finally able to score that key third goal.

Dekanich strong in return.

Klasen a goal scorer but how will the rest of his game develop as the season progresses?

Milwaukee heads back home tomorrow to face the Abbotsford Heat at 7 p.m.

  1. Nice to see the Admirals come back after losing a 3rd period lead. Klasen is simply awesome. Nice to see Geoffrion add 2helpers, but he also had 2 penalties.

  2. Geoffrion kind of reminds me of a sloth. He really isn’t that quick,and doesn’t hit well at all. He has a good slap shot. I think he’ll be here all year,and score 20 goals… Then run for congress in five years.

  3. Nice to see Lundmark get involved right away.

    Looks like it was Geoffrion who got to center Klasen and Thuresson in Grand Rapids. We’ll see if he gets the chance to do it again Saturday night in Milwaukee. Begin may be ready to play, so I’m not sure what his presence will do to the line combos…
