I asked Kevin Bertram about Saturday's incident and he declined to comment.
Komets captain Guy Dupuis said: ``We had a talk before the game and both guys settled that. We know it wasn't in malice. It wasn't something personal. It was two guys, 20 guys who want to win really badly and we get excited out there. It's not because we don't like a guy personally. We don't take it personally. When you want it that badly, sometimes you lose your emotions and that's what happened, and we know that.''
Komets coach Al Sims said he'll likely decide Tuedsay who will start in goal on Wedneday in Muskegon.
I also finally got to ask Matt Reynolds about the game-winning goal from Saturday night that he shot off the goal line. Was it in?
``I don't think so,'' Reynolds said. ``I don't understand how from his (the goal judge's) angle he sees over my stick and the puck and sees white between the red and the puck. He didn't even have the light on until after.''
You can't tell from the game tape anything about whether the goal was in or not. It doesn't matter now. It kind of reminded me of the goal A.J. Bozoian saved last year in Chicago that should have resulted in a penalty shot but did not. He covered the puck with his hand in the crease and them pulled it back to shove it outside the crease, but the ref missed it.
Things always seem to have a way of evening out.
No one seems to think Colin Chaulk will face any other suspension from leaving the bench. He went over to ask the referee about the goal light going on, but the altercation was still going on. The rule book says 10 games, but that's only if you leave the bench to get involved in an altercation. Don Parsons of Bloomington left the bench earlier this year in a game in Fort Wayne to jump on Mitch Woods' back and only got two games. The game misconduct was the correct call.
There's going to be some more notes in tomorrow's paper.
