GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Milwaukee Admirals scored the lone goal on a power play to defeat the Grand Rapids Griffins 1-0 on Wednesday at Van Andel Arena. After starting the season series against Milwaukee 5-1-1-0, Grand Rapids has lost its last two contest against the Admirals.

Despite being on a four-game home winless skid, the Griffins have recorded points in nine of their last 11 contests (5-2-3-1) in West Michigan.

The Griffins had a chance to take an early advantage in the opening frame at 3:34. Erik Bradford stole the puck and went on a breakaway but was unable to put it between the pipes, as netminder Connor Ingram made a left-pad save.

Milwaukee tallied the lone goal of the contest during its second power play chance of the night. At 16:17, Matt Donovan at the blue line ripped a long shot that went through traffic and over Victor Brattstrom's blocker.

In the middle frame, Grand Rapids held the Admirals to only three shots in the period. The Griffins also had three power play opportunities but failed to convert, including a 5-on-3 for 1:01.

Heading into the final period down one, the Griffins looked to make a late game-tying score. Dominik Shine generated a great chance from the low slot with 2:29 remaining but was denied by Ingram once more, sealing the 1-0 victory for Milwaukee.
