In Game Update - 3/27/09 vs. Rockford

End 2
Rockford 1, Houston 0

Wow, the IceHogs look great and are taking it to the Aeros tonight. Remarkably, they only have one goal for the moment. Not much to report on tonight at this point save for the fact that the IceHogs have almost put two in their own goal. That might be the only way these Aeros get on the board tonight. .

Aeros outshoot the Hogs 11-9 in the second, but Khudobin has faced more quality shots.
Bad news over in Peoria, as the Rivermen are leading the Admirals 4-2 after two.

More after the game.

Aeros did not do much with their power play that extended into the second period. They did survive another RFD power play, as Khudobin flopped his way to four big saves. Hrkac and Ryznar missed two really good scoring chances in the period. The Aeros do look much better in the second stanza.

End 1
Rockford 1, Houston 0

Staff photographer = "They can't play any worse, and they're only down 1-0."
Yep, Benoit Pouliot missed a shorthanded breakaway by lazily firing a shot right into the pads of Antti Niemi with 2:45 left.

And that's a good thing. Somehow, the Aeros are much better when they trail after one (13-5-0-5) than when they are tied after one (8-13-1-0). And here's the really good part. In their last 10 games in which they were trailing after the first period, the Aeros are 8-1-0-1. Yes, no, the normal laws of hockey do not apply to this year's Aeros team.

8:00 left in the first
IceHogs 1, Aeros 0

Basically a 12-minute power play for the IceHogs.

This is a sad sight for Aeros fans.
Team was outshot 10-1 and oustscored 1-0 before they realized there was a hockey game.

Rob Klinkhammer scored the first goal of the game 9:48 in on delayed penalty. Looked like the puck deflectd off Corey Locke, who was unintentionally in the way.

It looked like the pucked changed direction on Khudobin, who has been very good so far

Wow what a game. Kudos for Khudobin in this battle of the goalies.
