BROOKLYN AVIATORS: 3-0-1 on the Road; A's Take-Off for a Mid-Week Melee in Danbury.
Brooklyn's Coolest and the Danbury Whalers will drop the puck on Week Four tonight with a mid-week game. The two rivals have split their first two meetings. Brooklyn took the first game, while Danbury recently defeated the A's last Saturday.
After tonight's game, Brooklyn has an off day on Thursday before resuming their weekend schedule on Friday against Cape Cod, then Danville on Saturday. Both those games will be played in Hangar Five. For the Danbury Whalers, this game will be the first of four games in four nights.
Entering tonight's game, the Aviators are sitting in fourth place with twelve points, behind a three way eighteen point tie for first place between 1000 Islands, Akwesasne, and New Jersey. Then comes Danbury behind Brooklyn with nine points this season. Danbury is 3-3-0 this season. Brooklyn is sporting a 3-2-3 record thus far.
The Aviators have done much better on the road this season than they have back at The Hangar in Brooklyn. The A's are 3-0-1 as visitors. On home-ice however, they are yet to win their first game, sporting an 0-2-2 record there.
Thomas Lee's last start came Thursday in a game Coach Miller decided to make a call to the bullpen and bring in Peter Dundovich. Then Coach Miller charged Peter with starting the A's following two games last weekend. Both goalies have now participated in at least four games each. It will be interesting to see who gets tonight's start in net.
