SERIES NOTEBOOK:
Two years after taking their West Division final matchup to the limit, Milwaukee and Houston meet once again in the second round in 2011, their fourth postseason clash overall in the last nine years... Just as they did in ’09, the Aeros defeated Peoria in the first round to set up a meeting with the Admirals... Houston is coming off a four-game sweep of the Rivermen, while the Admirals needed six games to finish off Texas... The Aeros used the same lineup for all four games in the first round and 17 of their 18 skaters recorded at least one point in the series, led by Patrick O’Sullivan (2-2-4)... Chad Rau (2-1-3) and Colton Gillies (2-0-2) were the only other Aeros to score more than once vs. Peoria... Houston rookie Matt Hackett stopped 84 of 91 shots in the sweep (4-0, 1.67, .923), and he has now won 12 of his last 15 decisions since Mar. 13... After tallying 18-18-36 in 78 regular-season outings, rookie Gabriel Bourque led Milwaukee with 5-4-9 in the first round... Ryan Thang and Mark Van Guilder scored two game-winning goals apiece – their only goals of the series... Van Guilder’s goal at 10:42 of the second overtime – assisted by Thang – was the series-clincher in Game 6 vs. Texas... With Mark Dekanich still sidelined due to injury, Jeremy Smith (4-2, 1.89, .941) started all six games for the Admirals and led all AHL goaltenders in minutes played, shots faced and saves made in the first round... Houston will have had nine days between games by the time this series gets underway on Friday at the Bradley Center.
