It took awhile, but at :42 seconds into the third period, the Aeros were finally on the board thanks to Mr. Timmins and the Aeros, which had been dead once for the entire game, once again, were back in the action and looking alive for the first time in a week. Then Jason Zucker took things into his own hands, scoring late in the third period, and then hitting the game winner in OT to snap the Aeros out of their funk and put them back in the win column for the first time in five games.
John Torchetti was a very relieved man after the game, and talked about the character of the team. He also noted, once again, that the team was shorthanded and that some guys were having to work extra shifts.

The scratches were John Curry, Drew Bagnall, Kris Freidheim, Kris Foucault, Jarod Palmer, and Ryley Grantham.
The team returns to play tomorrow night against Chicago. So until then.
