Yes, the game was lost in a SO against Hackett (some fans undoubtedly disappointed that Kuemper sat this one out again). And, yes, some Aeros action on the ice was not exactly wunderbar!
BUT what made me sit up at the edge of my seat was the 'Energizer Bunny" effect by the same team that played soso hockey last night. That game was boring.
This game was, to say the least, exciting and to watch, at least to me.
Of course hockey experts will disagree, especially since "OUR" team lost.
Although loosing in either OT or SO, still gains a point!
|Another safe by Aittokalloi|
Rau was, again, visible although he only scored once in the 3. He is not a flashy player, but a reliable one.
Palmieri got an unassisted goal in the 1. After Pock and Sgarbossa put the Monsters ahead on the scoreboard.
In the second period Fontaine evened the score, but Agozzino placed Lake Erie ahead again.
The 3. period showed some more mettle with Rau's goal. Sgarbossa (again) scored on a PP, whilst a wild Palmieri sat for high sticking. Zucker then brought the score to 4:4 and the game went OT. No scores there for either team.
|I got that one chest high!|
|I am padded but. all those bodies piled on me..ouch I say|
BUT tonight there was neither break nor toss of his stick! :-)
|Connolly and Connelly joined at the hip :-)|
A respectable crowd of over 7.000 cheered,
and groaned, as well.
|Lookee the Puck stops there :-)|
LEM Goalie, the Finn Aittokalio stopped 26 of 30, while Hackett did the honors for the home team with 27 of 31.
Alas, the SO went against him, as Sgarbossa (bossy aint he?) and Lerg scored, while all 4 Aeros shooters did not!
