That's a 5-1 lead choked away. A total team failure. And that's two points in two nights that the Admirals left on the table, which right now is the difference between being 9 points out of the last playoff spot and 11 points.

Lots of Admirals returned to the lineup this weekend from injury. Andy Rogers was -3 in his first game back in a month. Brandon Segal returned after about three weeks out and earned a penalty shot in the third that probably could've iced the victory, but could not convert. Juraj Simek played in his second game since a layoff of over a month.

Bracken Kearns and Blair Jones were the game's second and third stars.
