I think Henley was a huge factor in this game, he was fast, all over the place defensively and he has some great shots on goal. Thankfully Schrock is finely on the boards. Everyone looks to be clicking and it looks like they are having fun out there. Go Komets!!!
Another good win for the K's today... Keep it rolling...
But what was up with Henley pinching in all the time, sometimes even below the goal line? If I recall correctly, that was a proximate cause of Dayton;s first goal.
I am not sure if Henley was at fault or not with regard to their goal but I do know he played fast and aggressive. He skated faster than I have ever seen him skate last night. I was extremely impressed with his play last night (not that he plays poorly any other time). At one point he came all the way from the blue line to the side of the goal to get a good scoring chance. I think his play below the goal line in the offensive zone actually says a lot for trust the other players have for one another. When your biggest stay-at-home defensive player is willing to pinch down the way he did then obviously he has confidence in his teammates to fill that void. All in all I thought they played well this weekend spite the loss on Friday night taking nothing away from Bloomington.
Henley had a great open ice check right before he tweaked his knee. Put the guy on his butt bigtime.
Henley went to the wall to check a Dayton player and they scored. The goal should have been picked up by the other D-Man but it wasn't because he was pinching in the zone. Also, if he does pinch a forward takes his Defensive position at the blue line.
Bobby Chaumont is great at covering the blueline when a defenseman pushes into the offensive zone.
