Houston Aeros Remain Hot, Pick Up Back-To-Back Wins Over Rampage

By Denton Ramsey, Houston Aeros Writer/Columnist

Despite skating on cold ice, the Houston Aeros are on fire.

The Aeros picked up back-to-back wins this past weekend in San Antonio, first in a come-from-behind overtime W on Friday night before taking a 2-0 win over the Rampage on Sunday afternoon.

With their latest pair of wins, the Aeros are now 5-4-0 on the young AHL season and have now won three games in a row on the road.

Houston’s penalty-kill was once again remarkable, as the Aeros prevented the Rampage from gaining any momentum when San Antonio had an extra attacker on the ice.

In net, Anton Khudobin played a phenomenal game in garnering a big shutout over the Aeros intra-state rival Rampage.

With the wins, the Aeros also now lead in points in the 2009-10 Lone Star Faceoff.

Houston returns to the ice on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at Toyota Center with the Aeros hosting the Hamilton Bulldogs at 7:05 p.m.

As usual, Tuesday’s game will be broadcast live on 1070 AM KNTH in Houston with Joe O’Donnell calling all the action; the Aeros-Bulldogs game may also be viewed online through ahllive.com.
