You can watch them here.
Komets are tied with evansville :)
How was the 2 fights last night ?
nice win last night. And they get Musselwhite off IR for tonight's game!!! Looking good for another 2pts.
The difference in this game as in a lot of games was that the Komets scored on their quality chances and the Mudbugs didn't. The Komets continue to get dominated in their own because they don't play the body and they gave up a ton of good chances. Kevin Reiter played well and in my opinion stole this game for them. The K's also continue to give up the puck with terrible turnovers. I am probably in the minority here but what the Komets need is new defensemen that can pass the puck. If you watch them consistently, all our defensemen do is pass the puck off the glass and it ends up either going for icing or down the ice for the other team to bring it back into our zone. The K's take so many penalties because they don't have good puck possession. Sure Chaulk helps tremendously with puck possession but if we don't have enough defensemen to get the puck to him or our other forwards then it doesn't matter. Listen David Franke....quit bringing in forwards and find a couple defensemen who can pass the puck! Frankie Deangelis is about the only one that can consistently pass the puck without icing it. Ratchuk is solid but he won't be here that long. Cescon is solid but he isn't a great passer. Philips and Mironovic can't pass and Guy is inconsistent. Once they figure out how to pass and generate some speed through the neutral zone and quit dumping the puck in so much to no avail, then we should be able to climb the standings and compete with the top teams.
-Good tussle with Schrock and Love, looked like Schrock landed a couple more, maybe round two tonight?
-Looks like Ratchuk has a heck of a slapper watch out standing in front of the net.
Always nice to win a game where the stats are that lopsided. Hopefully they can clean things up a bit before tonight.
JC I agree with you 100% Good points. Lets pick up two more tonight. One would think with Al being a former NHL defenseman he would have Shaft teach these guys how to pass. There I go thinking again!!
SHAF not shaft. Lol
Nuttintuit....Shaf is working with the forwards, not the d-men. Probably not gonna happen there, I'm afraid.
Considering the games in hand, E-ville has all but been in the K's rearview for some time now.
That's 10 games in a row now that the winning team has had the fewest shots. I have noticed that the more desperate teams become, the more they shoot. But it's the quality, not the quantity.
Probable winter storm Tuesday evening into Wednesday... Just beating mightbite to the punch.
I hope this is the big storm like NY gets
Excellent point, Wendy. Any time a team scores 5 goals on 15 SOG (0.333), they have an excellent chance of winning the hockey game.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqpvX0r2DS4 all of schrocks fight and both teams goals
Komets hanging in there for the first period Sat. WHEW--go Komets!
Bloomington leads the conference and yet has given up more goals than they have scored.....
Komets aren't that far out of the lead.....as bad of a start they had.....and they are a good winning streak from the middle of the pack and above.
Man the mudbugs must really suck.
Yeah, it can't be that the team has played much better for the past month and they are starting to climb the standings...nah, the other team just sucks!
Make that 11 in a row. And yeah, lately the Mudbugs have sucked. I knew I should have checked their results before saying anything, but one would assume a team near the top of the standings is at least doing okay. They were doing okay... in November and early December. Now they've lost 9 of their last 10. Yikes.
Just checked the Brahmas just for good measure. They won a close one tonight, but they lost the previous 3 in a row. And they are returning from a relatively short distance road trip this past week. It will be their 4th game in 6 days. Make of that what you will. We'll just have to see what happens.
I know what you mean, mightbite. East coasters get all the luck. I keep hoping for a big storm just like the good ol' days. Meanwhile I have hot chocolate, a fuzzy blanket and a good book collecting dust.
I hear 8 to 20 inches of snow :)
Strikeforce coming to Columbus Ohio & mightbite gets to work it :)
2 road wins in a row,GO FOR 3 :) GO KOMETS :)
Steelers will wear white jerseys for SB. The last 5 winners wore white jerseys :) Go for 6 :)
The Pack is Back............
Right now they're calling for only a few inches Tue and Wed, mixed with ice. The ice will really suck but the potential for more then that in snow is there so I guess we'll see.
... POTENT WINTER STORM TO AFFECT THE REGION...
.A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL PUSH INTO THE OHIO VALLEY ON TUESDAY... AND SUPPORT DETERIORATING WEATHER CONDITIONS IN THE AREA. SNOW WILL DEVELOP ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON... EXPANDING IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY TUESDAY EVENING. SNOW WILL CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON... ENDING BY WEDNESDAY EVENING. SNOW MAY MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO SLEET OR FREEZING RAIN SOUTH OF ROUTE 24... WITH SOME ICING POSSIBLE. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF UP TO 18 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THIS SYSTEM... WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS OF OVER 20 INCHES NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY. SUSTAINED WINDS OF 15 TO 30 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS... WOULD SUPPORT WIDESPREAD BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW... WITH DRIFTS POTENTIALLY REACHING SEVERAL FEET IN SOME LOCATIONS. TRAVEL WILL LIKELY BE DIFFICULT TO IMPOSSIBLE IN MANY AREAS... WITH ROAD CLOSURES POSSIBLE. THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY REGRADING THE EXACT TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM... AS CURRENT FORECAST SNOW AMOUNTS AND STORM IMPACTS COULD CERTAINLY CHANGE. PERSONS IN THE AREA SHOULD PREPARE FOR THIS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS STORM.
I dont like that forcast! Tired of winter already. Was tired of it before it offically became winter.
Yup. Looking like for once we could get a real storm.
I've got to get some beer.
You are starting to sound like a Canadian now, Mightbite. Only two things you can do during a long snow storm. Difficult to read after all that beer though. What were you guys and dolls thinking?
Take care if it gets bad down there everyone.
Looking forward to seeing a live game later in Feb.
Angola will probably get even more snow than Fort Wayne.
I got the original "War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells for Christmas a year ago. Also got the "Iliad" and "Odyssey" and the collective works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. :D
Mike in Toronto, I was born in Windsor Ont.
Komets win 3 on road :)
I like that song,when sung by Martina McBride :)
So you already knew the two things, Mightbite?
Great weekend, turn it around at home now and it will be something to watch.
I tried out for "Guys and Dolls" in high school, but apparently wasn't qualified to be a doll. I worked on the production crew instead.
How much beer did you bring in Wendy?
Mike in Toronto :)
I got 2-30pk & 2-18pk :)
I also got my Jack Lambert jersey :)
