MILWAUKEE 7, HOUSTON 0
Seven different Milwaukee skaters netted goals as the Admirals overwhelmed Houston with a 7-0 victory in Game 6 of the West Division Finals on Monday at the Bradley Center.
Defenseman Robert Dietrich had a goal and three assists for the Admirals, who have erased a 3-1 series deficit to force a decisive Game 7 on Wednesday.
After five close games to begin the series, Milwaukee was in control of this one throughout. Hugh Jessiman gave the Admirals a 1-0 lead 7:34 in, and Dietrich netted an unassisted goal for his first score of the playoffs at 12:52.
It made no difference, as Patric Hornqvist made it 3-0 for Milwaukee at 18:10 of the first, and the Admirals tacked on three more tallies in the second frame and one in the third.
Houston’s power play, which went a perfect 3-for-3 in Game 5, was held scoreless on eight opportunities Monday. Admirals goaltender Drew MacIntyre stopped all 21 shots to record his first shutout of the playoffs after surrendering one goal in a game on six occasions.
Game 7 is set for Wednesday at the Bradley Center, with the winner advancing to take on Manitoba in the Western Conference Finals beginning this weekend.
