Brooklyn got finned!

The Aviators fell to the Cape Cod Bluefins at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center in Massachusetts on Wednesday night, losing 4–2.

Brooklyn skated through a 1–0 deficit for the first two periods, but everything heated up during the last set, with the Fish leading 3–0.

Aviator newcomer Nick Petriello smacked in his first puck for Brooklyn’s boys of winter with less than five minutes of game time left, chipping away at Cape Cod’s lead.

Aviator star forward Jesse Felten earned Brooklyn’s second goal of the night with less than 15 seconds remaining, but it wasn’t enough to secure the win.
