BROOKLYN AVIATORS: With Their Goalie Situation on Ice, The A's Have Been Boarded by a Three Game Losing Streak.
With Josselin St. Pierre still out of action, the A's goalie situation remains on ice. Recently signed Richard Scarsella made his first start for Brooklyn on the road Wednesday night against the Cape Cod Blue Fins.
The game itself was a case of too little too late. Richard Scarsella kept his team close over the first two periods facing nineteen shots and allowing only one goal. Cape Cod then scored two more in the third period before the A's tallied their first of the evening with nearly three-quarters of the final period expired. Nick Petriello's goal made it a 3-1 game in Cape Cod's favor. The Fish then scored the slammer just over a minute later. Brooklyn made it a 4-2 game on a power play goal by Jesse Felten with under a minute left in regulation time. But that's all they'd get this night.
The loss was their third in a row. They dropped a pair last weekend to second place 1000 Islands in Upstate New York. Peter Dundovich started both those games in Josselin St. Pierre's absence and suffered the losses. The Privateers doubled up on the Aviators by a 10-5 combined score.
The A's have a busy weekend ahead of them. Tomorrow night they'll start a home-and-home series against the first place New Jersey Outlaws. Friday night's game will be in Hangar Five. Then it's off to Jersey. They'll return to The Hangar again for a Sunday afternoon game versus the Danbury Whalers.
Last week in response to a question I Tweeted Aviators Broadcaster Carmine Vetrano, he responded by saying Josselin St. Pierre should be ready for this weekend's games. Brooklyn's Coolest could use him right about now.
