Butler Wins it for Admirals in OT

Grand Rapids, MI— Bobby Butler scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lift the Admirals to a 2-1 win over the Grand Rapids Griffins Saturday at Van Andel Arena.


Butler carried the puck into the Griffins zone and snapped a shot over the left shoulder of netminder Tom McCollum for his tenth goal of the season at 3:25 of the extra session.


Admirals goalie Anders Lindback stopped 30 shots to improve his record to 12-5-1 on the season. The win was Milwaukee’s first against Grand Rapids this season (1-2-0-0).


Milwaukee struck first when Harry Zolnierczyk sped into the offensive zone and snapped a shot from the left circle past Griffins goalie McCollum. It was Zolnierczyk’s team-leading tenth goal of the season. Butler and Jack Dougherty picked up the assists.


Grand Rapids tied the game with a power play goal at 9:02 of the first period. Matthew Ford jammed a puck past the right leg of Lindback after the puck bounced off the end boards.
