MILWAUKEE -- Forward Dominik Bokk dashed the length of the ice, spun at the top of the left circle and scored 2:50 into overtime to extend the Chicago Wolves' winning streak to 11 games with a 1-0 victory over the Milwaukee Admirals Friday night at Panther Arena.

Rookie goaltender Eetu Makiniemi made 25 saves to earn his second shutout as the Wolves (19-4-1-1) made the most of the 11th scoreless regulation game in franchise history.


Milwaukee goaltender Connor Ingram (8-7-2), who suited up for the Wolves last season, rejected the first 38 shots fired by Chicago. But Ingram couldn't stop the 39th.

Chicago played without it top five scorers -- all of whom have been recalled from loan by the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes. Milwaukee (10-12-2-0), which saw its five-game winning streak come to a close, was missing four of its top five scorers due to NHL recalls.

Makiniemi (11-2-1) extended his personal winning streak to six games.
