Aces fall short to Eagles at home for first time ever

By Rontina McCann 11:32 PM March 13, 2014

Eagles defeat Aces, 2-0

ANCHORAGE – At the beginning of a three-game series the Colorado Eagles shut out the Alaska Aces 2-0 Thursday.

Nobody was on the board until the second period. A shot from Kyle Ostrow put the Eagles on the board first. The Aces don’t have an answer and for the first time ever the Eagles beat the Aces at home. These teams play again Friday, March 14.

This week the Aces lost center Brendan Connolly when he was recalled by Abbotsford.

“The challenge is going to be for a guy who is established like Nick Mazzolini, a guy who’s played so many years like Peter Sivak, to continue what they’ve been doing very, very well and mesh quickly with a newcomer on their line as well,” said play-by-play announcer Mike Benton.
