There's little doubt Flint is the only team in the IHL that can skate with the Komets. In fact, it looked a little like the Komets were on their heels just after the opening faceoff before Olivier Legault scored off a David Hukalo assist on a two-on-one.
The Komets put Terry Marchant on the 7-day IR before the game with a bruised foot. That allowed them to activate Konstantin Shafranov.
The Komets did not activate Brandon Warner. Don't be shocked if he stays on the IR long enough so that he doesn't reach the 60-game mark this season so he'd retain his rookie status for next year.
