Overall it was kind of nail biter game. And gained the team 1 point!
Reichard showed his mettle by stopping 27 of 29 SoGs. IMO he has real potential. He may need more practise facing 'shoot out foes'. Good JOB!
|Even with a foe on top of him in his net, Reichard did make the save|
Rau with McMillan scored first.
Both teams held onto their 2 goals each on OT but Rochester scored 3 vs the Aeros' 2 goal in SO. Leggio appeared (to me) to give advice to a Cody McCormick.. maybe how he saw Reichard react? But to no avail, McCormick did not score.
Despite the fact that Rochester sits in 1st place in their division with their penalty kill, Aeros' Phillips with Scandella and Granlund (again laying up for good shot) scored on one of their 4 PP.
Again, IMO, the Aeros' passing was good, the penalty kill much more effective, this speedy and rather physical game made tonight worth watching.
|And a fight broke out ;-|
Granlund really seems to have iron lungs, he was out there so much - it seems he never took a break.
McMillan tried, oh how he tried, only to have the perfect pass from Granlund go stratospheric.
|He tried, McMillan did!|
|Save by Reichard|
|Here you are ref.. a puck!|
|Starting with helmet malfunction?|
|Rau and Larsson inplace at the right time, but no goal afterall.|
|in the 2nd.:More helmet problems?|
Playing hard 'puck' and not taking any gaff from the "foe"-this was an Aeros team not much seen in the first months of the season.
If they keep this up.....Calder Cup may not be just wishful thinking after all :-)!
Now - if the referee would have done HIS job better.....
|Unhappy, even mad Coach! ;-)|
well it was obvious that coach Torchetti was NOT happy with Kosharsky in OT-above.
And the fans boooed rather loudly the ;'non-decision by Koharsky, as well.
