Anton Khudobin got the win but he looked unsteady at times. Here he came way out for a poke check on Trent Whitfield that was a near disaster. Gotta love the effort though.
Khudobin came up huge on this stop of Yan Stastny. The Rivermen were shorthanded when Stastny got the break away on the Aeros power play unit.
Here you can see the kind of juicy rebounds Anton gave up all night. This puck went back out almost to the blue line.
Mitch Love dropped the gloves with Tyson Strachan after a Aeros "near goal" in the 2nd period.
This is the Robbie Earl goal to knot the game at 2.With the score tied at 2 in OT, and trying to kill a 2 man Peoria advantage, Anton Khudobin was frustrated by Yan Stastny and pushes Stastny's helmet down over his eyes
The Rivermen were unable to score but Anton still gave the crowd heart attacks by continuing to cough up juicy rebounds and failing to control the puck. But he did the important thing and kept the puck out of the net.
Finally Max Noreau shoots the game winning shot. Here you can see what it looked like for Manny Legace and Maxime Noreau.
It was a huge win in a poorly played game but the Aeros had no quit in them.All Photos:Fred Trask
