MILWAUKEE - Magnus Hellberg made 23 saves and Michael Liambas scored a tiebreaking goal in the third period as the Milwaukee Admirals beat the Abbotsford Heat 3-1 on Sunday in the American Hockey League.
Tyler Ruegsegger scored the lone goal for the Heat (26-20-7), who couldn't convert on six power-play opportunities. Abbotsford has lost four straight but still lead the Western Conference's North Division.
You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
