Peverley scores, adds two assists as Admirals beat Marlies 4-2

MILWAUKEE - Rich Peverley scored and added two assists to lead the Milwaukee Admirals to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Marlies in American Hockey League action Thursday night.

Milwaukee ended a three-game losing streak and won on home ice for the first time since December 18th.

Milwuakee opened the scoring during a chippy first period. Toronto forward David Ling was whistled for interference and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, giving Milwaukee a four-minute power play. Milwaukee struck 48 seconds into the man advantage when Mike Santorelli tipped in shot past sliding Toronto goalie Justin Pogge.

The Marlies (25-7-0-4) replied at 12:04 into the first period on a power play. Ling snatched a rebound left by Admiral netminder Pekka Rinne and poked it through Rinne's pads.

Milwaukee scored two quick goals late in the first period to take a 3-1 lead. Peverley took the puck from behind the Toronto net and beat Pogge over the shoulder at the 17:24 mark. Matt Ellison then fired a centring pass from Peverley between the stick of Pogge and the left post.

Milwaukee (19-16-1-1) added an insurance goal 1:48 into the third after Antti Pihlstrom finally settled a Pogge rebound and poked it past the diving netminder.

Rinne stopped 25 shots while Pogge made 23 saves.
