The Aeros lead this series two games to none, and the Rivermen are hurting with several key players (Ian Cole, Tyson Strachan, Stefan Della Rovere) likely to miss tonight's game with various injuries. The good news for the Rivermen, however, is that another key player may be back in the lineup tonight for the first time in several weeks:

...goaltender Ben Bishop, in his fourth spring with the Rivermen, is still waiting to play his first pro playoff game.
Bishop missed the final week of the regular-season and the first two games of the playoffs with an injury, but practiced Sunday and is ready to go if the Rivermen need him.
"It's no fun listening to games," Bishop said. "You want to play. You want to be there with your team. We let Game 2 slip away, and that was tough. I don't know if or when I'll play, but Jake (Allen) had a good game and has played well, gave us a chance to win."

This is your Game Day Thread. Hoping to get some live updates and pictures from several Game Timers who will be in attendance at Carver Arena this evening.
