Can Moose Finally Finish Series at Home?

From the Moose site:

Friday night's double overtime loss to the Houston Aeros was Manitoba's fourth longest game in franchise history. It took the Aeros 24:19 to notch a winner in double-overtime against the Moose, bringing the club's overtime record this postseason to 0-3. The longest game the Moose ever played lasted an extra 37:26 on May 2, 2003 vs. Hamilton (2-1L). The Moose have lost 11 of their last 12 postseason overtime games. Last season, the Moose lost all four games in overtime in the North Division Semi-Final versus Syracuse. Overall, five of the six games of that series went to overtime. All-in-all in their playoff history, the Moose are 11-16 when embarking on extra time and 6-12 since joining the AHL.

If the Moose are able to pull off a victory tonight against the Aeros they will clinch their first Western Conference Title in franchise history. The Moose have a 5-2 record in Game 6 when considering their IHL and AHL history.

This could get freaky yet. The Aeros are really coming on now.
