The Manitoba Moose (19-19-3-2) finished off their lead-up to the all-star break with a 8-2 defeat at the hands of the Milwaukee Admirals (22-17-6-1) at UW-M Panther Arena on Saturday afternoon. The home side used its power play to open the scoring 12 minutes into the contest. Cole Schneider slipped a pass cross-crease to Eeli Tolvanen who fired the puck to the back of the net. The Admirals had a good opportunity to add to the lead on a Joe Pendenza breakaway, but Ken Appleby shut down the chance, making one of his 12 saves in the period as the Moose went to the break down 1-0.
Milwaukee built its advantage just 80 seconds into the second frame. Tyler Gaudet spied Tolvanen lurking on the far-side of the Moose net, hit him with a pass, and Tolvanen put away his second of the game. The Admirals added to the lead 3:15 later when Joe Pendenza tipped a point shot to the back of the net. The Moose got on the board midway through the frame courtesy of Chris Collins tipping a Cameron Schilling point shot past Tom McCollum for a power play tally to cut the deficit to 3-1. Milwaukee quickly went back on the attack as Emil Pettersson struck twice, once on the power play and once at even strength, to take a 5-1 lead to the third.
After the Moose took an early penalty, Logan Shaw jumped onto a loose puck for a breakaway and buried a shorthanded tally 44 seconds into the period. The Admirals responded two minutes later as Jeremy Gregoire lugged the puck down the ice and slipped a shot to the back of the net. Tyler Gaudet made it 7-2 at 5:34 of the frame as he tracked down a bouncing puck in front of the Moose goal. Milwaukee tacked on another one with 9:33 to go in the game when Yakov Trenin redirected a point shot into the net. That tally rounded out the scoring as Milwaukee claimed the 8-2 victory.
