Talk about a comeback!

The Brooklyn Aviators had the Cape Cod Bluefins for dinner on Thursday after deboning the hated Fish during a 6-3 victory at Floyd Bennett Field.

The victory was a stellar retort to the embarrassing 3-0 loss the Aviators suffered against the Bluefins on Dec. 10, as well as the scrappy squad’s lackluster 2-4 record against the Connecticut ice cutters this season.

Fresh off an unexpected bye weekend, Brooklyn’s boys of winter were the first to score five minutes into the opening set.

But the team truly came alive in the second and third periods, netting five more goals, mostly during power plays, after the Bluefins drowned under a tsunami of penalties. The Bluefins were boxed for 28 minutes in the last two periods for unsportsmanlike conduct, interference and abuse of officials.

Five Aviators also spent some time in the box, including forward Jesse Felton, who was accused of interference and was forced to cool his skates for two minutes, but then cut the Fish’s head off by scoring Brooklyn’s sixth goal with four and a half minutes left in the final frame.

The Brooklyn Aviators will again battle the Cape Cod Bluefins at the Aviators Sports Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. in Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park, (718) 758-7580] tonight, Dec. 23 at 7:35 pm. Tickets $12 ($10 for seniors and children under 14) For information, visit
