he Milwaukee Admirals, AHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators, defeated the Toronto Marlies by a score of 3-2 tonight at BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
Miikka Salomaki’s 9th goal of the season gave the Admirals a 1-0 advantage at 8:26 of the first period. Toronto would respond at 7:00 of the middle frame on Wade MacLeod’s 5th goal of the year. Salomaki notched his second tally of the night on a powerplay just 25 seconds into the third period. Just under five minutes later, Colton Sissons gave the Admirals their third powerplay goal of the night to make it 3-1.
