4-0 loss ends 4 game streak; MAds Henry gets 4 pts.

Ondrej Pavelec was shelled out of the net and the Milwaukee Admirals recorded a shutout against the Chicago Wolves, 4-0 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont Wednesday. The loss ended a four game winning streak by the Wolves.

Pekka Rinne stopped 22 shots in the blanking and four different Admirals scored on a Chicago team that didn’t seem to be aware of the game. First, Andreas Thuresson out skated Scott Lehman in the first period and placed a beautiful shot past Pavelec. In the second period Janne Niskala faked Pavelec down, then wrapped around the net to score. Finally, Kelsey Wilson and Josh Langfeld settled two more goals into the Chicago twine in a period of a little over two minutes of the final frame.

Captain Alex Henry recorded points on each of the Milwaukee goals. The fourth goal caused Chicago to pull Pavelec in favor of Robert Gherson. Gherson stopped all 12 shots he faced.

It was the second shutout of the Wolves by the Admirals this season. In October the Admirals recorded a 1-0 overtime win over the Wolves. It was also the first win in Chicago by the Admirals this season.
