Defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron underwent successful back surgery this morning. It’ll take six to eight weeks for Bergeron to recover.
The Houston Aeros beat the Peoria Rivermen 5-2 tonight in Game 7 to advance to the second round of the AHL playoffs against Milwaukee (or Craig Leipold’s current farm team vs. Craig Leipold’s old farm team). Maxim Noreau broke a 2-2 tie in the third. Here is the link.
If you want to make a road trip — like I may do — the Aeros play Games 1 and 2 in Milwaukee on Thursday and Saturday.
The Aeros’ GM is Tom Lynn. The Admirals’ GM is Paul Fenton.
The winner of the series becomes the Wild’s next GM.
