Last night the Admirals won 4-2 over the San Antonio Rampage and continued their stellar run of performances dating back to two weeks ago.
Ever since the Admirals hosted the Pekka Rinne show they have gone 6-1-0-0 and have scored 35 goals from 7 games. In that span they also added some new blood in the form of Calle Jarnkrok and Francis Wathier. Jarnkrok has 7 points (5 goals, 2 assists) in 5 games – he has yet to not score as a member of the Admirals. Wathier has also factored in from the checking line with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) in 3 games since joining on loan from the Texas Stars.
Things just appear to be coming together at the right time. To think, not really that long ago, we were chatting about a 5-game winless streak.
After last night’s game I talked with Milwaukee Admirals head coach Dean Evason. I also talked to Scott Darling and Anthony Bitetto – all while Cassadee Pope blasted in the background. I then partook in a “Formula 1 is back” party – hence why this wasn’t up sooner than it typically is.

Comments on the comments? What did you make of Evason’s audio in regards to Filip Forsberg? Do you feel like the combination of Forsberg and Jarnkrok should develop in Milwaukee this season and hit the NHL together moving forward?
