Not exactly a need for a “Scouting the Enemy” as far as tonight’s game is concerned. We played the Oklahoma City Barons on Sunday so there is a good grouping of pre-game material for you to reflect on: the prior Scouting, Game Recap, and Chatterbox.

With that in mind I feel it would be fun taking a looksie at what’s what with the Milwaukee Admirals as far as their work on the road is concerned. The month of March features ten road games in total. The Ads have already worked through a pair of those to start the month off but are about to embark on a season-long six game road trip. Let’s see how things have gone so far away from Milwaukee.

~Road Warriors Theme Song Because Reasons~

The Admirals overall record this season is 31-19-4-4 (70 points). On the road they are 15-6-3-2 which means that they actually have a better winning percentage on the road (0.673) than they do at home (0.547).

When looking at the special teams numbers things actually manage to improve away from the Bradley Center: PP (overall), ranked 18th in the AHL with a 16.4% (38/232) success rate… PP (road), ranked 2nd in the AHL with a 22.3% (23/103) success rate… PK (overall), ranked 12th in the AHL with an 84.8% (184/217) kill rate… PK (road), ranked 8th in the AHL with an 87.0% (87/100) kill rate.
