In game 7 against the Admirals, the Aeros got the game winning goal with 1:21 left in the 3rd period.
In game 7 against the Bulldogs, the Aeros got the game winning goal with 1:13 left in regulation, and now move on to play the Binghamton Senators in the Calder Cup Finals.
I was listening to the Hamilton broadcast for the last few minutes of the game, and they were upset about a few things in those final minutes. On the game winning goal, Drew Mac-In-Tyre seemed to have control of the puck, but with no whistle, the Aeros were able to whack at it and eventually put it past him.
And then in a scramble in front of the Aeros net with less than 10 seconds left, the Hamilton broadcast was saying that an Aeros player covered the puck with his hand in the crease…..which would be a penalty shot. But nothing was called.
But something needs to be said for the Aeros ability to score important goals in crunch time. It’s a pretty good hockey team.
