The Alaska Aces, who can eliminate the Idaho Steelheads tonight in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals in Boise, have activated defenseman James Martin and placed veteran defenseman Sean Curry on reserve.
That means you can probably count on Martin being in the lineup tonight and Curry being out. Martin has been a scratch the last two games, since the return of Kane Lafranchise from the AHL. Curry has played all eight playoff games to date.
Coach Rob Murray after Alaska's 4-2 win in Game 4, which earned it a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 series, said veteran Gerald Coleman will start in goal in Game 5.
