San Antonio won yesterday, giving them the two points they needed to exit the cellar while the Stars couldn’t get a break against the Aeros. I was at that game and saw all the near misses Houston goalie Matthew Hackett lived through. The hockey gods were smiling on him.
It isn’t going to get better soon. Bachman and Wathier have been called up to Dallas due to the main team’s injuries piling up. It’s great for our players since being in the NHL is the inevitable plan. Leaving the local roster depleted…not so much. I’m curious as to what the Jeffs (both coaches have the same first name) are planning with the upcoming road trip to North Carolina. Something has got to change. The “we’re not playing 60 minutes” excuse is turning into a cliche.
This is what I get for being spoiled with two winning seasons.
