Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

Belated Christmas Present for Aeros fans Aeros 4-Stars 3

The winning goal by Medvec!
Granlund and Nilstorp duel for the puck :-)
With Matt Hackett in the net the Aeros managed to overcome attacks by Texas Stars to win the game in OT 4-3. 
Zucker seems always ready...
Being Guns and Hoses night, TC brimmed over with close to 11000 
very loud fans animated by

Hackett- the warrior
                                   Nilstorp of the Stars

Busy, busy  Hackett
Granlund at face off
Goal by Coyle in the 2nd. 
Aeros score first (Granlund, Coyle, Zucker), but Stars (Fraser, Sceviour, Benn) bounce back within 5 minutes. The rest of the first was a bit blah.
In the second Aeros scored first again (Palmieri, Fontaine, Connelly). Although the Stars managed to get a PP goal (Eakin, Chiasson, Smith) while Bagnall sits,  the Aeros also got a PP goal (Coyle, Granlund, Zucker) during the only penalty of a Stars player (Eakin).
Then came the third and it was a busy time for the Stars with 13 SOG and one goal by Roussell, Nemeth, Dillon to even the score to 3:3.

And so we went to OT. When a bit over 2 minutes into it Kyle Medvec with the help of Palmieri and Cuma scored the game winner! Now that WAS a surprise to us after having been less then overwhelmed with his performance with the Solar Bears in early December.

Amazingly, there were only 3 penalties called and both teams managed to convert one each!
Hackett gets the win with 27 saved of 30 SOG

What was this about the "goal/play under review" and lastly accredited to the Stars? Anyone saw details?

@anon. All I saw from my part of the arena a super quick swipe with a stick to remove the puck which IMO just hoovered at the edge of the blue, if not a tad outside. But which Aeros? Did the puck go all the way in? IF so why did the goal judge not switch the red light on? IMHO it did not go in and was whisked out. But then I am not a ref.
