The second of four consecutive Wednesday meetings between the Utah Grizzlies and Houston Aeros is scheduled for tonight in the E Center. Faceoff is set for 7 p.m.
Utah (36-16-7) won the opener 4-0 last week in what coach Butch Goring called the best game the Grizz had played all year. The Aeros, who hold a one-point lead over the Grizzlies for second place in the Southwest Division, still hold a 3-2-2 advantage in the season series, however. Both teams trail front-running Long Beach in the International Hockey League's most competitive division.Tonight's contest ushers in a three-games-in-four-nights homestand for the Grizz. Utah hosts Manitoba Friday and Long Beach Saturday.
