Trevor Smith was the lone scorer in the shootout as the Milwaukee Admirals edged the Chicago Wolves 4-3 on Tuesday night at Allstate Arena.

Although the Wolves lost, the magic number to clinch their 19th postseason berth in 24 years shrank to 2. If the Cleveland Monsters defeat the Admirals in regulation Wednesday, the Wolves (38-21-7-4) will punch their postseason ticket.
