|Kind of says it all right now|
Cutting into that ownership is a Charlotte Checkers club that simply can't lose right now, even with an ECHL goalie that frustrated the Aeros to no end, especially at the end of the first period when the Aeros finally woke up.
This effort was their best of the weekend. Friday was just awful, and they know that. Saturday, they had the jump, but not the brains. And Sunday, they just got beat by a better team, plain and simple. The PK seems to be getting better, but it's still a major concern.
Remarkably, after only getting one point on the weekend, the Aeros are still in the playoff picture. They are still Top 10 in the league, but they better figure out how to win on the road again. The schedule gets really, really crazy. Check out these numbers.
Starting Friday, the Aeros will play
- 5 straight on the road
- 13 of their next 16 away from Toyota Center
- 17 of their next 21 games on the road
- a total of 19 of their next 25 away from home
