NEW YORK AVIATORS: The Coolest Guys In Brooklyn Are Skating On Thin Ice. Must Win To Avoid Elimination.
A deciding Game Five can be played in Brooklyn with a win today in Danbury.
After splitting the first two games of the Southern Division playoffs against the Danbury Whalers in Brooklyn, the New York Aviators find themselves in a must-win situation today after a crushing O.T. defeat last night in Game Three played in front of 2,900-plus Danbury fans.
Chris Seifert of the Danbury Whalers scored his second goal of the game with 11:31 left in over-time (FHL - 20 minute O.T.) to break a 2-2 tie and push the Whalers one win closer to a meeting with the Akwesasne Warriors to decide the Federal Hockey League's 2011 Championship. Back in the second period, Chris Seifert scored his first goal to tie the score at one apiece.
In the Northern Division, the Akwesasne Warriors did away with the 1000 Island Privateers three games to one and sit waiting to take on the winner of the Southern series.
Should the Coolest Guys in Brooklyn pull out a win today in Danbury and tie the series again at two games apiece, the deciding fifth game will be played Sunday - March 13, 2011 at 3:05pm back at Hangar #5 in Brooklyn.
