The Milwaukee Admirals provided many great moments throughout the 2016-17 season. When thinking of what the “Best Game” was there are fortunately many to pick from. Do you go with the time the Admirals clobbered the Texas Stars 9-1 on the road? Do you think a little on the evil side and take the 6-3 win over the Grand Rapids Griffins? Or, is there something off the cuff that managed to pile all kinds of great sequences together?
To me, despite the options, there is really only one winner. The Best Game of the 2016-17 Season was the Admirals’ second ever School Day Game which ended in a thrilling 5-4 overtime win over the Chicago Wolves at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.
That game had it all but, above all, an unmatched atmosphere that was loud from start to finish. It is always noisy with those school crowds coming in but all the kiddos quickly get to grips with how hockey is played and set the backdrop on the most entertaining game of the season.
The Admirals went up 2-0 but then allowed three straight goals to the Wolves. The Admirals would equalize, concede, and equalize again en route to overtime. That set the stage for Alex Carrier to score one of the best goals of the season to cap off overtime in style.
