The Admirals (16-13-2-1) quickly charged back to tie at 1-1 when defenseman Victor Bartley scored at 13:26.

The Admirals grabbed a 2-1 lead early in the second period when left wing Kevin Henderson rifled a shot over the glove of Wolves goalie Brett Climie (6-11-0, 24 saves) at 3:54.

The Wolves knotted the score at 2-2 on a power play when Schroeder beat Smith high at the 7:17 mark.

With seconds left in the second frame, Haydar got the go-ahead goal for the Wolves at 19:51, as Andrew Ebbett earned an assist.

At 4:56 of the third period, the Admirals' Mark Van Guilder evened the score at 3-3. Admirals center Austin Watson netted the game-winner at 18:27.
