Call-ups (in MIN and HOU) provide spark

So many times we refer to Russo's blog because his information is timely and accurate 99.999 percent of the time.

But as it turns out, he writes actual articles, too. Here is a nice piece about how the Aeros call-ups sparked the Wild to a pair of much-needed wins before the All-star break.

Also, even though the Aeros lost three straight games last weekend, they got points in all three. "Call-ups" or PTO guys chipped in quite a bit, too. Here is a summary:

In Friday's loss to San Antonio: 

Radja, 0+0=0; -1, 1 shot
McKenzie, 0+0=0; -1, 1 shot
Martin, 1+0=1; Even, 1 shot
Stretch, 0+1=1; +1, 1 shot
---------------------------------------------------
Totals, 1+1=2, -1, 4 shots


In Saturday's loss at Texas: 

Radja, 2+0=2; +2, 3 shots
McKenzie, 0+0=0; +1, 1 shot
Martin,  0+0=0; Even, 0 shots
Stretch,  0+0=0 ; Even, 1 shot
Clackson, 0+1=1; +1, 2 shots
---------------------------------------------------
Totals, 2+1=3, +4, 7 shots
(The Aeros were outshot 49-25 in this game!)

And in Sunday's loss to San Antonio


Radja, 0+1=1; +1, 0 shots
McKenzie, 0+0=0; Even, 1 shot
Martin,  0+0=0; -1, 1 shot
Stretch,  0+0=0 ; Even, 1 shot
Clackson, 0+0=0; +1, 1 shots
---------------------------------------------------
Totals, 0+1=1, +1, 4 shots


==========================================
Weekend Totals - 3 goals, 3 assists, 6 points; +4, 10 shots
And the most important stat - ZERO Penalty Minutes

Yesss. Good show for the newbees!
No penalties make for afast and fluid game.
A point won is a point more on the up and down road to play offs!
