Game Story
The Manitoba Moose (24-34-4-5) brought an eight-game home stand to a close against the Milwaukee Admirals (39-21-3-3) at MTS Centre on Friday night.  The matchup got off to a physical start in the opening minutes with both teams taking an aggressive stance.  The combatants kept the shot counts down, defending the middle of the ice with goaltenders Jamie Phillips and Marek Mazanec facing six and five shots respectively.  The teams went to the second tied 0-0, but Milwaukee carried 3:20 of powerplay time into the middle frame.

The Admirals cashed in on their time with the man advantage as Trevor Smith found twine to open the scoring 40 seconds into the period. The Moose nearly tied the game on the remaining penalty time.  Patrice Cormier and Chase De Leo both had breakaway opportunities, but Mazanec turned away both chances to maintain the Admirals lead.  Milwaukee added to its advantage with eight minutes to go in the period when Justin Florek slipped a wraparound under the pad of Phillips for a 2-0 Admirals edge.  Despite the Moose outshooting the Admirals 12-6 in the period, the visitors took their two-goal lead into the third period.

Manitoba kept up the pressure in the third, outshooting Milwaukee by a 15-4 count.  The Moose broke through on the powerplay with 4:08 left in the third when Patrice Cormier knocked in a rebound to pull the Moose within two.  The hosts continued to press, but weren’t able to find another marker as Milwaukee came away with a 3-1 win.
