Ads Win Preseason Opener
The Preds top developmental team, the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals, opened their 2010 preseason on Friday night at the Rockford IceHogs. Several of Nashville's top prospects are playing with the Admirals, including 2007 First Round pick Jonathon Blum and 2008 First Round pick Chet Pickard.

Rockford, Ill.- The Admirals opened up pre-season play with a 3-2 shoot-out win over the Rockford IceHogs on Friday night at the Metro Centre. Conner Shields and Wes Cunningham scored in regulation for the Ads, while Chris Mueller and Mark Van Guilder Lit the lamp in the shootout.

All four goals were scored in the second period, with Milwaukee bookending the scoring.

Early in the second period Milwaukee converted on the power play. IceHogs goaltender Alec Richards fended off a Chris Mueller blast but Wes Cunningham fired the rebound to the back of the net to put Milwaukee up 1-0. Michael Bartlett also factored in on the play at 1:56.

Rockford responded with a power-play goal of their own to tie it up at 1-1. Ben Smith pounded home a Ryan Stanton blast from the point at 9:44 in the second period. Chris DiDomenico was also credited with a helper.

Peter Leblanc gave the IceHogs a brief lead at the 13:09 mark when he drove to the net and chipped in his own rebound past Jeremy Smith. Brian Connelly and Ivan Vishnevskiy had the assists.

The Admirals came back 29 seconds later and tied it up at 2-2. Richards couldn't cover a loose puck in the IceHogs zone and Conner Shields slapped it to the back of the net.

The Ads were outshot 12-7 in the third period, but neither team could find the back of the net and for the second-straight home preseason game the contest went to overtime and eventually to the shootout.

After Jeff Taffe tallied for Rockford in round one, but Smith held Rockford off the board the rest of the way. Chris Mueller (round two) and Mark Van Guilder (round four) beat Richards as the Admirals out did Rockford 2-1 in the shootout.

The IceHogs outshot the Admirals 35-22 in the contest and both teams finished 1-6 on the power play
