Ads defeat Rampage 5-3 in final game of road trip

The Admirals finished their ten game road trip with a win Sunday afternoon in San Antonio.  The three week trek ended with a 5-3 victory over the West Division leading San Antonio Rampage.  Milwaukee finishes the four state journey with a  5-3-0-2 record leaving them with a  11-6-1-4 record overall, good enough for 4th in the West Division and four points out of first.

Chris Mueller finally snapped a nine game power play drought when he scored at 15:54 of the first period of Sunday’s game.  Milwaukee had gone 0-32 in the first nine games of the road trip until they scored thrice on the PP Sunday.

Linus Klasen scored on the PP at 16:55 of the third period on for the GWG.  Klasen had an adventurous road trip with his new team and coach but still leads the team with ten goals on the season.

Jeremy Smith collected his second victory of the season Sunday turning away 33 shots.

  1. Going to be a happy bunch on the plane ride home tomorrow!

    Great to see the power play get back on track in a big way.

    Not so great to see Ford getting called for Yonking with two minutes left in the game.

    Great to see what must be an exhausted team finishing so strong in the 3rd period.

    Looks like the ice was tilted one way….all the goals were scored in the same goal.

    Laakso scratched with a lower body injury, and Flynn was injured in the game. We’ll know more about severity after the team gets back. We’ll see if Dan Gendur makes the trip back to Milwaukee, or if he’ll head back to southern Texas to play with the Killer Bees. But listening to the broadcasts, it sounds like he’s been holding his own just fine. Maybe we’ll see him at the BC this week?

  2. I am surprised that they got that many points on the trip. I was a little worried about this year after watching them at home games. Offense still seems to be an issue. If Dex keeps playing like he is, they should be able to keep their heads above water.

  3. I think you have to be satisfied with the results of the road trip, going over .500, especially against some pretty tough teams. A few more wins and less OT/SO losses would have been better though!

    Dex has been playing great, but I wonder if he can keep this up the entire year… not his skilled play, but his carrying the team. At some point he’s going to need some offensive help to win games.
