When these teams last met on February 1, the Wolves jumped out to an early 4-0 lead. This time the Admirals (27-24-3-3) needed just 2:40 to light the lamp off a top-shelf wrister from left wing Kevin Henderson.

Matheson redirected a point shot in front of goalie Jeremy Smith and found an opening down low to make it 1-1 at 9:47.

The Wolves kept their momentum going in the second period when Archibald took a pass from left wing Bill Sweatt and rifled a one-timer past Smith (17-19-3, 26 saves) at 2:01.

Trailing 2-1 after two periods, the Admirals quickly knotted the score at 2-2 at the 43-second mark when right wing Matt Halischuk stuffed a score past goalie Matt Climie on a power play.

Halischuk scored his second at 10:18 when he placed a shot from the near circle under the crossbar and over Climie's glove.

Admirals right wing Juuso Puustinen batted a puck over the top of a sprawled-out Climie (16-16-2, 36 saves) at 14:52 for a 4-2 advantage.

Ebbett added a power-play marker at 19:30 as the Wolves were skating 6-on-4 with Climie pulled and on the bench.

The Wolves host the Admirals today in an Amtrak Rivalry rematch at 7 p.m. at the Allstate Arena.
