Milwaukee comes back from three goal deficit to win in OT

The Milwaukee Admirals took the oxygen out of the Wells Fargo Arena Saturday night with a 5-4 OT win over the Iowa Stars. Starting down 4-1 in the third period, the MAds scored three times in a space of seven minutes to force the game into overtime. The final goal came with just 51 seconds remaining on the regulation clock.

Dov Grumet-Morris received the win, stopping 19 shots in his debut as an Admiral. The Admirals are now 5-0-1 in their last six games and hold fifth place. They trail the fourth-place Peoria Rivermen by one point in the West Division. The Rivermen have a game in hand over the MAds. The Houston Aeros and the Quad City Flames both trail the Admirals by two points in the standings. Houston has two games in hand over the Admirals.

The fifth-place team in the West Division would currently receive a playoff spot in the North Division. Currently the North Division Syracuse Crunch have 60 points, where as every team in the West Division, with the exception of the Iowa Stars, has at least 63 points. The fifth place West Division team, the MAds have 5 points and a game in hand over the Syracuse Crunch.
