The Brooklyn Aviators were shot down and nearly shut out by the New Jersey Outlaws on Monday night, falling 3–1 to the top-ranked ice bandits during a special President’s Day showing at the Aviators Sports and Events Center.

The defeat caps off a torrential, two-week losing skid, which now stands at five whopping failures.

It was a slow game to start, but Outlaw Kevin Cooper quickly took things into his own hands, stealing two unanswered points in the first and second period and leaving the skaters from dirty Jersey with a solid lead going into the final round.

Brooklyn right winger Michael Thompson earned a point early in the third period with a soaring breakaway, but New Jersey kept up the pressure, with Outlaw Anthony Battaglia slapping in the game’s last point four minutes before the buzzer.

Fortunately, the gamed ended with a crowd pleaser for those A’s fans still seeing red: Aviator’s netminder Jo St. Pierre and Outlaw goalie Dan McWhinney left their creases to duke it out to a roar of approval from digruntled A’s fans moping in the stands.

The Brooklyn Aviators will return to the Aviator Sports and Events Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. in Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park, (718) 758-7580] on Feb. 23 at 7:35 pm to take on the Akwesasne

Warriors. Tickets are $12 ($10 for seniors and children under 14). For more info, visit
