The Wolves struck first when left wing Sweatt rifled a pass from center Jordan Schroeder past Admirals netminder Jeremy Smith at 2:22 in the first period. That was the first game-opening score by the Wolves on the road since Nov. 2 at Rockford.

Milwaukee defenseman Victor Bartley responded with his first goal of the season on a shot past goaltender Matt Climie at 15:17.

That would be it for the scoring for the next 36 minutes.

On a Wolves power play, left wing Archibald broke the stalemate by knocking a rebound past Smith for his first score of the season and putting Chicago up 2-1 at 15:30 in the third period. Defenseman Kevin Connauton's shot from the point set up the go-ahead goal.

A quick two-goal response by the Admirals, first from left wing Gabriel Bourque at 18:35 with an extra attacker on the ice and then by center Chris Mueller at 19:40, sealed the victory for Milwaukee.

Climie (1-6-0) stopped 30 of 33 shots. Smith (6-9-1) posted 19 saves for the Admirals (8-8-1-1).
