Perhaps what the Admirals need right now is an opponent that they have next to no knowledge of so that they can focus purely on their own game. That’s pretty much the story tonight as Milwaukee sees a team from the North Division visit Milwaukee for just the second time this season.
The Hamilton Bulldogs have a record of 15-13-6-0 (36 points) which has them sitting in third place of the North Division. By picking up a point in their 3-2 (OT) defeat to the Chicago Wolves last night, and the Admirals 4-2 loss to the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Bulldogs are now in the eighth and final playoff spot of the Western Conference. Lucky for the Admirals that the season isn’t on the line tonight. There is still plenty of time for both of these teams to climb the ladder.
~Who What Now?~
Hudon leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 32 points (10 goals, 22 assists) in 34 games. He is tied for the team lead in power-play goals with Sven Andrighetto with each having 3 PPG’s. Hudon also has a plus/minus rating of +7 and 40 penalty minutes.
Hensick is second on the team in scoring with 28 points (9 goals, 19 assists). He’s a +4 player and, in 34 games, only has 4 penalty minutes.
In net right now the Bulldogs have Mike Condon and Joey MacDonald. Condon, despite this being his first full season at the AHL level, has played in 4 more games than his veteran counterpart. Both have performed quite well though. Condon: 8-7-3-0 record, 2.36 goals against average, 0.927 save percentage. MacDonald: 6-5-3-0 record, 2.95 goals against average, 0.902 save percentage.
What should we expect from the Milwaukee Admirals tonight? Is it getting to the point where you don’t know which Admirals team is going to show up? Scoreline prediction?
