Milwaukee outshot the Aeros 33-28. Kuemper stopped 16 Milwaukee shots in the third period. The Admirals finished 0-6 on the power play.

What makes it fun is the unexpected discovery, even if its something you owned the fact did not think you'd see that item again now makes it almost seem like a prize...
