|Montreal scores before taking out the visiting goalie, too.|
Canadiens win 5-4 in the shootout.
As of now, still no news on what exactly happened, but Backstrom is not going to be playing hockey any time soon. Hackett will be recalled later today, and the Aeros will have to roll with Darcy Kuemper and a yet-to-be-determined backup.
I sure hope Jim Mill knows of a decent goalie with AHL experience. The Aeros cannot afford to just give away points at any point for the rest of the season.
Oh, well ... that is enough good news from Mr. Sunshine. The Aeros have had all week to get ready for their game against the Rampage tomorrow night. No excuses either; San Antonio will be playing at home for the first time in 11 games ... advantage visitors, and shame on them if they don't take the favorable schedule.
Have a great weekend everyone.
