Strong words from Playfair to his goalies

Now this is the kind of stuff writers dig, because it does not happen very often.

The Aeros opponent this weekend, the Abbotsford Heat, completed a stunning comeback in the last game over the Lake Erie Monsters.

They trailed 3-0 and won the game with four third period goals. Before the win, the Heat were 0-13 when trailing after two periods. (Does that sound familiar?)

Even after the win, Heat coach Jim Playfair had some strong words for his goalies.

Here is a link to the story
, but below is the great quote that I was talking about before.

"I'm getting sick of changing goaltenders," Playfair said. "I expect one of these guys to get real serious about their careers and to make a heavy push for wanting the responsibilities of the No. 1 goaltender. Other than Keetley in the Texas series (last weekend), I think both goaltenders have been average, and that's not good enough."

As for Keetley's emotional stick-snapping display, Playfair said it was a case of too little, too late.

"Show me some emotion, but do it in the game when you can do something about it," the Heat head coach said.
