|Be'Wild'ered Hackett after the 5th Goal by Amerks|
And was pulled for the 3. period and replaced by Kuemper who only had to stop 5 SoGs.
Kuemper was pulled (a bit too early, IMO) for a 6th skater with over 2:30 minutes to go and Legault of the Americans promptly managed their 6th goal - an empty netter. I was stunned it happened so fast..I believe Fredheim was unable to control the puck and so opened the 'net' for Legault's solo goal. Americans 6 Aeros 3.

Their SoGs were 8-8-12.
Americans must have been really hungry for a win to take home after 2 losses in Texas and they did it with 6-12-5 SoGs and 6 goals - all 3 Stars of the Game were Americans (Whitmore, a real American from Rochester yet! Lagace, Legault born QC) even if 2 were Canadian, French ones at that! BTW Leggio their goalie who stopped 25 of 28 SoGs is also an American (born I mean).
A new face AARON LEE (born 1985 Feb. Canada) was Number 10 and seemed quick on his skates, chasing the puck - often successfully, and not afraid on bodily contact when called for...a somewhat auspicious debut at the AHL Level for him. "Lee has defined consistency for the Bees over the past three plus seasons in the Valley playing in 214 games for the Killer Bees which is good for second all-time in Bees history. During that stretch Lee has scored 72 goals (also second all-time) and registered 77 assists".
