Finally, six nights after the Houston Aeros completed a four-game sweep of Peoria, their second-round opponent is set -- Milwaukee. The Admirals, whom the Aeros beat in Game 7 two years ago to advance to the conference finals, beat Texas, 3-2, in double overtime moments ago to eliminate the Stars in Game 6.

Both Marco Scandella (broken finger) and Brett Bulmer (freshly signed to amateur tryout to go along with his entry-level deal) should both be ready to play.
