BROOKLYN AVIATORS: The Coolest Will Try and Finally Skin The Fish Friday Night. But First They Welcome FHL New-Comer, the Vermont Wild, to the Hangar on Thursday.
Those Fish did it again. For the second time in as many meetings, the Cape Cod Blue Fins beat Brooklyn in over-time. Last Saturday, they came to Flatbush Avenue to do it too. But Brooklyn's Coolest will get another chance to see if they can finally turn the tables on Cape Cod in what will be their third meeting this season when Brooklyn travels to Hyannis Friday evening for their only road game of the up-coming weekend.
In last week's loss against the Fins, new-comer Vladimir Nikiforov continued his grand arrival on the team by notching his first hat-trick as an Aviator; coming in part on the strength of two short-handed goals. Jordan Bernier was the other Brooklyn goal scorer. After two weeks and five games, Chris Ferazzoli leads the team with nine points. Vladimir quickly has found his way to second on the list with eight points. And Jordan Bernier is the third leading point scorer for Brooklyn with six. Goalie Thomas Lee suffered the hard-luck loss. He made thirty-three saves on thirty-eight Blue Fin shots on goal. He has started four of Brooklyn's first five games.
After their game in Cape Cod this Friday, the Aviators will return to Hangar Five for another scrum against the rival Danbury Whalers this Saturday to wrap up the weekend's action. The A's put a hurting on them in last week's encounter up in Connecticut.
In the standings so far (prior to the Wednesday night game between Danville and Akwesasne), three teams were tied for the circuit lead with twelve points; 1000 Islands; Akwesasne; and New Jersey. Then comes Brooklyn in fourth place with eight points after five games.
