Leafs Win...Unbeaten in Six (3-0-3-0)...Leeb Snaps

St. John's Maple Leafs 4
Milwaukee Admirals 3

Druken 2 PPG's, 1A...Gavey 1G, 1A...Barrett 2 Assists…Special Teams Key...Tellqvist Strong

The St. John's Maple Leafs went with the same line-up Friday night and it proved to be the winning combination. The Maple Leafs defeated the Milwaukee Admirals 4-3 Friday night at the Bradley Center to win their 20th game of the season and in the process extending their unbeaten streak to six games (3-0-3-0) and improve to 11-11-1-1 on the road. The Leafs special teams were strong against the Admirals and were key in the victory. The Leafs scored three powerplay goals and killed off nine-of-ten Admiral powerplay's. The Leafs Harold Druken broke out of his slump with a three-point night with two PPG's and an assist. Aaron Gavey continued to be the leader for the Maple Leafs with a two-point night with a goal and an assist. Nathan Barrett continues his strong play since returning to the line-up adding two assists. The Leafs special teams key in the victory tonight. Not to be forgotten in all of this was the strong play of goaltender Mikael Tellqvist who stopped 45 of the 48 shots that he faced in recording his seventh victory of the season. Brad Leeb almost cost the Maple Leafs the hockey game and should be benched for the next game. Taking a penalty is not a big deal, but then putting your team down another two minutes for yapping at the official is. The Maple Leafs now travel to Grand Rapids to play the Griffins tomorrow night at the Van Andel Arena.

The St. John's Maple Leafs decided to go with the same line-up Friday night in Milwaukee that they used against the Wolves Wednesday night. The Leafs opened the scoring with a five-on-three powerplay goal off the stick of Harold Druken, his 13th of the season, with the assists to Aaron Gavey and Carlo Colaiacovo at the 5:45 mark. Mikael Tellqvist made two outstanding saves in the first period to keep the score 1-nothing Maple Leafs. Tellqvist stopped the Admirals Libor Pivko on a short-handed breakaway and then stoned Mathieu Darche moments later. Shots in the first period were 12-9 in favor of the Admirals.

The Admirals had some pressure on early in the middle stanza but Tellqvist was there again to make an outstanding save off of the stick of the Admirals Simon Gamache and keep it a 1-nothing Maple Leafs. The Admirals had a 5-on-3 powerplay of their own in the second period but the Maple Leafs penalty killers were up to the challenge. Great saves early by Tellqvist and some great work by the Maple Leafs penalty killers was the reason the Leafs were up 1-nothing and in a position to open a 2-nothing lead which they did. The Maple Leafs made it 2-nothing with another powerplay goal off the stick of Harold Druken, his second powerplay marker of the game and his 14th of the season, with the assists to Nathan Barrett and Regan Kelly at the 8:20 mark. The Leafs made it 3-nothing with a goal off the stick of Aaron Gavey, his 13th of the season, with the assists to Harold Druken (his third point of the game) and Brendan Bell at 12:12 of the second period. The goal would give the Maple Leafs some breathing room, but it did not last long. The Admirals gave their fans something to cheer about cutting the lead to 3-1 with a goal off the stick of Curtis Murphy, his 6th of the season, with the assists to Greg Classen and Darren Haydar at the 14:36 mark. According to the broadcast Tellqvist was screened on the shot and never saw it. Shots in the second period were 14-11 in favor of the Admirals, 26-20 through 40 minutes in favor of the Admirals, but it was the Leafs up a pair heading into the third period.

The Maple Leafs opened a 4-1 lead with another powerplay goal, this time off the stick of rookie Kyle Wellwood, his 8th of the season, with the assists to Nathan Barrett (his second assist of the game) and Brad Leeb at the 5:00 minute mark. Mikael Tellqvist made at least three outstanding saves after they took a 4-1 lead and that would be big for the Maple Leafs. The Admirals would not go away and they cut the Maple Leafs lead to 4-2 with a goal off the stick of Mathieu Darche, his 14th of the season, with the assists to Kirill Safronov and Tony Hrkac at the 9:55 mark. The Maple Leafs were in control of the game on the scoreboard, (being outshot badly) until Brad Leeb took a two minute penalty for roughing. Leeb decided that he was going to be a "hero" and keep yapping at the referee who then gave him another 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct and a 10-minute misconduct. The Leafs finished the game shorthanded. The Admirals scored another goal off the stick of Mathieu Darche, his 2nd of the game and his 15th of the season, with the assists to Darren Haydar and Tony Hrkac at the 16:07 mark. They went to work again on another powerplay and they came close hitting the post. The Admirals pulled goaltender Wade Flaherty for the extra attacker but to no avail. Shots in the third period were 22-6 in favor of the Admirals, 48-26 in favor of the Admirals in the game.

3 Stars:
1 Harold Druken: 2G, 1A
2 Mikael Tellqvist: 45 saves
3 Mathieu Darche: 2 goals

GCHWP: Ben Ondrus

Notes:
Leafs Overall: 20-18-5-1
Leafs Road Record: 11-11-1-1
Tellqvist improves to 7-5-1, 45 saves
Leafs Unbeaten in Six (3-0-3-0)
Leafs went 3-for-7 on the PP.
Admirals went 1-for-10 on the PP.

Next Action: Saturday, January 17th, 2004 against the Grand Rapids Griffins at the Van Andel Arena.
