ICEHOGS COME UP SHORT, FALL 3-2 TO MILWAUKEE
The IceHogs are 3-4-0-1 against Milwaukee in 2008-09
Rockford, Ill.-The Rockford IceHogs know they can beat the Milwaukee Admirals on the road, but with two games left at the Rockford MetroCentre against the West's top team in 2008-09, they now need to find a way to win at home.
The Hogs fell to 2-9-0-0 in their last 11 at the Big Orange Box with a 3-2 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday. They are now 0-2-0-1 against the Ads in the Forest City this campaign.
"I thought we played well," winger Bryan Bickell said. "They got a lucky bounce and they got two power play goals. We just need to keep doing what we're doing and working on our special teams."
Milwaukee's Mark Dekanich shined in net with 46 saves to lead the Admirals, while Crawford finished with 29 saves in the loss.
"We threw everything at him," said Bickell, who has two goals and an assist in two games since returning from injury. "We tried to get the greasy goals and we threw everything at him but the kitchen sink it seemed like. But they had good defense and they got the puck out of the zone."
Down 3-1, the IceHogs made it interesting with a Bickell goal, the forward's second in two games, at 12:10 in the third period. Bickell redirected a Danny Groulx shot. Jack Skille was also credited with an assist.
But the IceHogs couldn't finish the comeback in the final half of the period.
"We just need to go into Texas and take four points now," Bickell said. Rockford leaves for a game against Houston and another against San Antonio this weekend.
In the first period on Wednesday, the Admirals took the lead when Cal O'Reilly picked up a loose puck at 9:30 and put it in the net. The assists went to Patric Hornqvist and Kelsey Wilson.
In his first game with the IceHogs, centerman Tyler Mosienko tied the game at 12:27 in the second with helpers from Jack Skille and Bickell.
"We had a lot of chances," Bickell said. "But I thought we could have had a couple more. I think we adjusted well. It was the first time with Mosienko in the line up and I thought he played well."
Then just 50 second later, O'Reilly gave Milwaukee the lead again on a power play. The assists went to Hornqvist and Mike Santorelli.
The Admirals took a two-goal advantage when Hornqvist put the puck past Crawford on a power play at 4:27 in the third. The goal was assisted by O'Reilly and Cody Franson.
Milwaukee was 2-for-3 on the power play, while Rockford finished 0-for-4.

Dekanich Leads Admirals to Win
Admirals Win Despite Facing a Season High 48 Shots
Mar 11, 2009
Milwaukee goalie Mark Dekanich stopped 46 shots while Cal O’Reilly and Patric Hornqvist recorded three-point nights to lead the Admirals to a 3-2 win at Rockford Wednesday.
Dekanich stopped 18 of 19 shots in the third period to preserve the win.
Hornqvist scored the game-winner with a power play goal from the right circle at 4:27 of the third. Receiving a feed from O’Reilly, Hornqvist’s quickly released shot went into the net to give him a goal in eight straight games, a Milwaukee AHL record and the second longest streak in the league this season. Cody Franson also recorded an assist.
Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead when O’Reilly knocked a rebound of a Hornqvist shot into the net at 9:30 of the first period. Hornqvist carried the puck to the bottom of the right circle and fired a shot that IceHogs goalie Corey Crawford stopped. However, the rebound went off O’Reilly for his 12th goal of the season. Hornqvist and Kelsey Wilson recorded assists.
Rockford tied the game at 12:27 of the second period when Tyler Mosienko backhanded a bouncing puck past Dekanich. The tie score was short-lived because O’Reilly scored his second goal of the night just 50 seconds later with a blast from the left circle that exploded over the right shoulder of Crawford. With Milwaukee on the power play, Mike Santorelli pushed the faceoff to the right corner. With everybody pursuing the puck, Hornqvist sent a pass to a wide-open O’Reilly in the slot for his fourth power play tally of the season.
Rockford’s Bryan Bickell scored with 7:50 to play to cut the deficit to one, but Dekanich stopped everything after that.
The Admirals finished with 32 shots.

Milwaukee's Defense Too Much For 'Hogs
March 12, 2009
ROCKFORD — A 48-shot assault wasn’t enough for the Rockford IceHogs to avoid a 3-2 loss Wednesday against Milwaukee before 2,262 fans at the MetroCentre.
“We threw everything at him except the kitchen sink,” Rockford’s Bryan Bickell said of Milwaukee goalie Mark Dekanich.
“Their defense is big and strong in front of the net, and our game plan was to drive the net and hopefully get the greasy goals. But their big fellows got the best of us.”
Trailing 2-1, the IceHogs fired 19 third-period shots at Dekanich, whose 2.12 goals per game average is third best in the AHL.
After the Admirals went up 3-1, Bickell got a shot into the net at 12:10 in the third period.
But that was the end of the IceHogs’ offense.
“We have to find a way to get some contributions from unlikely sources, or maybe on the power play would be nice.” Rockford coach Bill Peters said.
“If you are only going to get two (goals) a night, you better tighten up defensively and be prepared to win 2-1 hockey games.”
Rockford’s other goal came from center Tyler Mosienko, playing his first game for the IceHogs. Assisted by Jack Skille and Bickell, the second-period goal tied the game at 1-all at 12:27.
“Anytime a guy can come into a new situation and contribute the way he contributed, that is a pretty quality debut right there,” Peters said of Mosienko, who played with Bridgeport (seven games) and Manchester (nine games) of the AHL in the past two years.
