Admirals lose in OKC 5-4 in SO. Maz has never allowed more than 2 AHL goals in a game, that I can remember. That makes only 2 points in the last 3 games. Milwaukee currently holds the 6th playoff spot, 2 points ahead of #7 and #8, and 2 points behind #5, the Chicago Wolves. The Admirals come home from their roadtrip and play on Tuesday.
I am surprised! Not that Beck is going back to the NHL, but that OnMilwaukee ran a positive Admirals story.
I have boycotted them for years due to Dave Begel's rants that Milwaukee would be better off if the hockey team left town. Why they kept publishing that %$#! is beyond me, and was a disservice to the community. Ten years of positive stories and OM will have squared their account.
The H1N1 (Spanish flu from 1918, AKA Swine Flu from 1977 and 2009, AKA Influenza A) is hitting Wisconsin hard. People under 35 have no immunity, unless they got a flu shot. I don't know that FF has the flu, but there are a lot of sick people around Milwaukee at the moment! So glad that I did get a flu shot this year. Thirty-three confirmed dead in Texas so far.
Milwaukee lost 4-3 in OT. The Admirals led 3-1 after 2 periods. The defense was flat at the beginning of the third period, allowing Rockford to tie the game. The IceHogs beat the Admirals to loose pucks and kept control of the puck in the first and third periods. Maz let in more than the usual 2 goals, but he didn't always get much help. It was the third game in three days for both teams, but Rockford outplayed them and outshot them 43-28. The OT goal was from 70 feet. Maz has a weakness that I saw in this game. Maybe the goalie coach can fix it.
Chase Balisy interviewed on the pipeline media show. he's in the first round of voting for the Hobey Baker. (Most likely won't make it). Sounds like Nashville might let his rights lapse to allow him to go to UFA.
