AEROS WEEKLY REPORT
THU, at MTB, 7:30 p.m.
The Aeros continue a four-game road trip with the first of two straight games in Manitoba. Houston took three of four points from the Moose in Houston earlier this month, losing 3-2 in a shootout but then winning 3-2 in regulation two days later. That victory snapped a six-game Houston winless streak (0-5-0-1) in the series. The Aeros have lost three straight in Winnipeg, including both games last season at the new MTS Centre. Manitoba won 8-1 and 2-0 on home ice last March.
FRI, at MTB, 7:30 p.m.
Houston is 36-19-10-1 all-time versus the Moose, but just 10-10-1-1 since entering the AHL. The Aeros are 17-10-5-0 all-time on the road in the series. Houston last won in Winnipeg on January 30, 2004, a 5-2 decision.
SAT, at TOR, 6 p.m.
This will be the first-ever meeting between Houston and Toronto, leaving Albany, Binghamton, Hamilton, Hershey, Lowell, Portland and Springfield as the lone franchises that Houston has never faced in the regular season. The Aeros have played Hamilton and Hershey in the post-season, and they have their first regular-season meeting with Hamilton in December.
