View from the press box: Joe Fallon steals the show

The Aeros improved to 4-1 on their homestand with a 1-0 shootout win over the Heat, and you can read more about their dazzling performance in Heather's recap below.

She was spot on about Fallon and his great game, and how, even though the Aeros were plagued with turnovers, they still found a way to get the extra point in the standings.

Big picture wise, this was a big game. The Aeros jumped all the way to No. 4 in the standings. And they've won three in a row for the first time in ... a long time. Since that awful four-game losing streak, the Aeros are 6-3.

After tomorrow's game against OKC, the Aeros will hit the road for four straight, including games against the Rockford IceHogs, Chicago Wolves and Milwaukee Admirals.

And here is another weird note for you - after the game against the Barons, the Aeros will play nine straight games against teams outside their division.

I honestly don't know what to expect tomorrow; the Barons just pounded the Stars in back to back games, and the Aeros have not scored a goal in four plus periods.

Big win for the Aeros tonight, and a win tomorrow would give them a sweep of the weekend home three in three.

We'll see what happens and who Torch decides to start against the Barons. It was really, really warm down on the ice tonight, and Fallon has be to drained after a game like tonight.

But man, he sure has been good on this homestand.

Start Fallon, but have a quick hook.

Unless you don't think you can beat the Barons, then start Whatshisname instead.
