Aeros 2-1 -- Photos of Matt Hackett

The Aeros got the 2-1 win over Hamilton tonight in a game in which they dominated the first 30 minutes or so, then had a let up that neither Mike Yeo or the team was too happy about in the second half.

But Matt Hackett stood tall tonight, stopping 38 of 39 shots, including 20 of 21 third period Hamilton shots -- Hamilton didn't score until there were 50 seconds remaining in the game. Admit, we've all had our worries about Matt Hackett, but if he continues playing like he did tonight, we might not have too much to worry about.

I'll post some quotes and a more in-depth story later, but until then, here are a few photos of the star of the night as the Aeros take the 1-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.

Matt did an outstanding job tonight! I'm not worried at all if he keeps this up!

Unequivocably, Matt Hackett's BEST game, as an Aero!

Perhaps, the Admiral's Game 7 gave him the confidence that he IS CAPABLE of playing at a higher level, which we saw tonight.

Go Aeros!

Matt was just great tonight. He looked confident and determined and he really came through at the end. Very impressive!

Any word on Bulmer? I hope he isn't badly hurt. If he is unable to play Sunday, do you think Kassian will play?
