The Aviators might as well start carrying around some mugging money in their gloves — every time they go up against the New Jersey Outlaws, they have to give up the win.

Our boys of winter fell to the crooked skaters from the so-called Garden State again on Friday, losing 3-2.

The pain began in the first period with former Aviator — and 2010 season fan favorite — Matthew Puntureri netting the Outlaws’ first goal of the night.

New Jersey was ahead by two halfway through the second frame, but the Aviators quickly caught up with center Jesse Felten and right-winger Andrew Owsiak putting two on the board before the second buzzer sounded. Owsiak’s goal — his eighth this season — came in a short-handed tally with just 33 second left in the frame.

New Jersey quickly rallied back, scoring three minutes into the third period. But the Aviators had already run out of ammunition by then — firing a meager eight shots at the Outlaws’ net after coach Robert Miller pulled goalie Jo Saint-Pierre for some additional firepower.

Friday marked the fourth time the Aviators went up against — and lost to — the Outlaws this season.

The Brooklyn Aviators will be sticking around to take on the Cape Cod Bluefins at Aviator Sports [3159 Flatbush Ave. in Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park, (718) 758-7580] Dec. 10 at 7:05 pm. Tickets $12 ($10 for seniors and children under 14) For information, visit
