The Team that skated tonight was full of beans in the First.
Whatever happened in the intermission?
The team that skated out for the second period seemed changed.
Yes, they peppered Smith with 9, 10 and even 15 SOGS.
While the Ads had 10, 7 and 8 respectively.
And yet Ads scored 5 times, once in the 1. 2x each in 2. and 3.
Now the Aeros did get 2 PP goals (Spurgeon and Scandella) and THAT goal by Palmer, that definitely went in..as the 3 replays so dramatically showed. It took the officials much longer to actually credit it!
And I liked what a saw of the kid Bulmer (Nr. 11) speedy skates, fast reactions.
Someone to look forward to for next season?
But after a surging First, second and third periods were lackluster, disoriented perhaps?
Hackett was not the only one with a 'bad hairday'.
IMO the following Numbers had one, too: 14, 26 (although He did provide a few moments of a new form of hockey-kick hockey or Puck kicking, perhaps ;-) ; 15, 44 (what was he waiting for? A puck brought to him while he hoovered at the glass so many times?) ; a few times even 16 (passing the puck to space or the Admirals?).
Anyway it was a disappointing night at the TC. I shall just have to keep the bottle of bubbly on ice.
In case it will be needed to celebrate..or maybe needed to drown the sorrows?
BTW Moose won over Bulldogs (former Aeros Rosa had an assist) and
The Pirates won over Binghampton, with Brust (former Aeros)/Lehner in goal.
