MILWAUKEE - Triston Grant scored twice, Mike Santorelli added three assists and the Milwaukee Admirals beat the Manitoba Moose 4-2 in American Hockey League action Saturday.

Peter Olvecky and Hugh Jessiman also scored for the Admirals (11-8-5), who got 22 saves from Chet Pickard.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie and Aaron Rome replied for Manitoba (14-12-4) while Daren Machesney stopped 26 of 30 shots.

The Moose opened the scoring on their third shot of the night when Labrie, back after missing 13 games due to injury, knocked the puck past Pickard from in close.

The Admirals came out soaring in the second period and it paid off with an early goal. With Machesney sprawled on the ice and a crowd of players in front of the net, Grant poked the puck behind the goal-line to knot the game 1-1.

Grant gave the Moose their first lead of the night when he wrapped the puck around the net and in between Machesney and his goal post for his second of the night.

With 60 seconds left in the second period, the Admirals hustled down the ice and Olvecky scored Milwaukee's third consecutive goal.

The Moose pulled within a goal as Rome scored his third of the season when he went high on Pickard.

Fifty-five seconds later, Jessiman fired the puck and beat Machesney on his blocker side to put Milwaukee up 4-2.
