Sunday Matinee - Aeros vs. Rockford

The objective is simple today; the Aeros need to continue to beat the teams they are supposed to beat, and the last-place IceHogs are one of those teams. A win today gives the Aeros sole possession of first place in the Western Conference with 77 points.

OKC plays Texas today, and Aeros fans should be hoping for a Barons win. If that happens, the Aeros will be five points clear of the third place team in the division. Those points will be crucial for that week in April when the Aeros don't play any games.

Hackett likely gets the call today after picking up his second shutout of the season, but that is not a certainty. Also, I think we'll see Peters for the first time since his brief stint with the Wild earlier this week.
