But I digress ... Considering their goaltending situation - and it remains unclear if Hackett will get his first start of the season today against Vancouver - I thought it was a big road point.
Matt Kassian scored his first goal of the season in the second period, but the Checkers tied it up later in the period, and that is how the game would finish until the penalty-shot tiebreaker.
Charlotte won the shootout 2-0, and finished with a 2-1 win in front of more than 12,000 fans. Just an incredible showing in North Carolina.
The playoff picture is just an incredible mess right now, which is a great thing if you like dram and entire seasons coming down to the very last weekend. This is going to be a fun ride, and it all starts again today when the Aeros finish their two-game set at Charlotte.
Have a great Sunday, everyone.
