Monsters rally for point in overtime loss at Milwaukee

Monsters rally to pick up point in 4-3 overtime loss to Admirals

Jan 7, 2022

The Cleveland Monsters fell in overtime to the Milwaukee Admirals 4-3 on Friday night at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. With the overtime loss, the Monsters are now 10-8-4-3 and are currently in fourth place in the AHL’s North Division standings.

 

Billy Sweezey started the scoring at 2:35 of the opening period with his third of the season off an assist from Tyler Angle, but Milwaukee answered with a tally from Graham Knott off of feeds from Joseph LaBate and Anthony Richard at 8:12 to send the game to the first intermission knotted at 1. Milwaukee took a 2-1 lead courtesy of a Tommy Novak power play goal, assisted by Rocco Grimaldi and Cole Schneider at 2:29 in the second period. Grimaldi added a power play goal of his own at 13:50 off assists from Novak and Cole Smith to give the Admirals a two goal advantage. But the Monsters struck back with Brendan Gaunce’s ninth of the year from Tim Berni and Kevin Stenlund at 14:15 to cut the deficit in half, before a Josh Dunne breakaway goal assisted by Cole Clayton sent the game into the final stanza tied 3-3. After a scoreless third period, the game went to overtime where Anthony Richard potted the game winner for Milwaukee off a Cole Smith feed with 0:18 on the clock.

 

Cleveland’s Cam Johnson made 34 stops in the overtime defeat while Milwaukee’s Connor Ingram made 25 saves for the victory.
