View from the Press Box is the same view everyone else had. First 5-6 minutes were good, and the rest of the game was crap.
It was turnover city, and the Marlies capitalized time and time again in a 6-2 drubbing of the home team.
While it's easy to say now, it just looked like the Aeros thought they could just dipsy doodle past a Toronto team that has been struggling lately. After they scored their first power play goal in the first period, the Aeros clicked on the cruise control and paid dearly.
How to fix this?
Well, for starters, it will be nice to have Jed Ortmeyer back on Thursday. Also, I did not see Hackett on the bench tonight, so I can only assume that he was sick and unavailable to backup.
Torchetti said the Aeros went from their best hockey game to their worst in a matter of two days. Don't turn the puck over, don't be lazy, work hard, and things will be fine.
Abbottsford is a good hockey team with a great goaltender.
The Aeros have three days to get ready for their first "biggest division matchup" of the season.
