This wasn’t exactly the fast start we were all hoping out of the Milwaukee Admirals. Round One. Game One. Starting on home ice. Yet it was the Toronto Marlies who really dictated most of the action last night. They seemed more patient and controlled – even when playing with pace.
The good news for all Admirals involved is that tomorrow is another day. Round One. Game Two. It will be the difference between this becoming a best of three series or a do-or-die situation for the Admirals from Game Three onward.
