Mikael Berdin of Manitoba made 19 saves on the opposite end.

Manitoba’s lone goal scorer of the afternoon was Morgan Barron, who scored his fourth goal of the playoffs.

The first period got off to a slow start, with Milwaukee getting the game’s first notable scoring opportunity seven minutes in.

Tommy Novak swooped in across the blue line and slapped a fast slap shot past Mikael Berdin, but not the crossbar.

Milwaukee finally scored on a juicy rebound off Berdin’s pad, with the game still scoreless well into the midway point of the first.

The visitors took a 1-0 lead as Admirals captain Cole Schneider ripped the first shot, and Juuso Parssinen cleaned up the mess.

With a short over a minute remaining in the period, the Moose attempted to tie the game, but Mikey Eyssimont’s pass designed for Morgan Barron slid right through Ingram’s crease.

The Admirals outshot the Moose 13-4 throughout the 1st period and went into the locker room with a one-goal lead.

Milwaukee took advantage of a powerplay early in the second period, scoring their second goal on Tommy Novak’s assist. Visitors win 2-0.

Milwaukee’s Brayden Burke was punished for slashing moments later, giving the Moose a man advantage of their own.

At this point, Ville Heinola shuffled a pass to Morgan Barron. Barron came in and scored his fourth goal of the series with a wrister to cut the deficit in half. Admirals win 2-1.

After forty minutes, the horn at Canada Life Centre sounded like this.

The Moose looked much better in the middle period, outshooting the Admirals 10-4.

Both sides came out firing in the third during the first whistle, with many scrums erupting.

The Moose were represented by David Gustafsson and Nick Hutchison, who attempted to ignite the game just two minutes in.

With four minutes remaining, the roughhousing continued for the whole of the quarter as both teams searched for the game’s first goal.
