Aeros rip Stars, bus home to face Abbotsford Sunday

Dammit! I said the Aeros were going to win 5-3 tonight. Well, that certainly wasn't the case and Dennis Endras kept the Stars out of the net most of the night en route to a decisive Aeros win at Cedar Park Center.

While I did not see much of the game, it sounds like after than nasty shorthanded goal by Vincour, they really dominated the game.

A 5-1 win just one night after lollygagging through a 3-2 OT loss sure does make one at least a bit more hopeful against the red-hot Heat. They, by the way, destroyed OKC Saturday night.

Mike Lundin did not make the trip, but I guess could play Sunday against the Heat. So that makes he and Matt Hackett really rested for the big game today. Both teams will be playing its third game in three days, and this is the biggest game of the season so far for both teams.

Wellman, Penner and Rau each with a goal and an assist, and DiSalvatore just chipped in with two more points against the Stars. He just murders that team ... I know there is a note out there about how many points he has against the Stars, but I just can't think of it right now.

(Really, REALLY long day so far)

The Aeros were only shorthanded four times, and did not allow a power play goal against the league's top PP. They did, however, give up another shorthander. That, to me, is the only bad blemish on what otherwise was a real solid night.

Oh and can you really believe that the Wild, at this very moment, are the top team in the NHL? Guess what? I can ... I believe in Mike Yeo and what he is doing. I am sure they won't be the No. 1 seed come April, but he is going to get every last ounce out of the players he has.

We've all seen that first hand, huh?

It looks like they finally played a 60 minute game.

And look at the results!

OK, just enjoy the skating and action this afternoon, don't get worried about how bad the Heat pummel us.... and maybe we can catch them napping and get a point out of it.
