I've heard a couple of rumors today that Kaleigh Schrock won't be playing tonight but that is not true. He will be in the lineup. So will Tom Mele, though the Komets are saying who he'll replace in the lineup will be a game-time decision.

I also heard Reiter is starting...

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 10:54am

Well let's see what the options are:

Artie- Doubt it
Leo - possibility no points in this series, but has speed
Curdy- Also has not produced but can get hot...
Patrasso-Has not actully lighted anything up in the play-off's is big body, but has he really been noticed?
PC-Has had limited role thus far and at times has been a liability on the PP as a d-man...

I think logic tells you PC, but because he is a vet and has played a part in 3 championship he doesn't sit my guess is Patrasso will sit tonight. Line combos could look like this.

Blake, go back and read paragraph 6 of your article.

Isn't that exactly what they have needed to do ALL season long? Sure, they have produced sporadically during the season, but to expect them to "change" and do it three games in a row is unreasonable now.

The "secret" to their success is right there in paragraph 6. Confidence has been lacking all year. Don't know why but they are a fragile team emotionally.

They better have their heads in the game tonight or their butts will be at a golf course tomorrow.

There's one thing about it " this site is full of good hockey input. It's one of the best I've had the pleasure of visiting. Let's drop the puck now and see where game 3 takes us.

As the school day began, my students kept asking me if the Komets would be playing hockey on Friday. As the day progressed, more students inquired about the status of the Komets and their series against the Rush. I explained the importance of tonight's game to them, all the while, repeating to myself the quote from the movie Miracle when Kurt Russell, playing Herb Brooks, addressed the team before
their game against the Soviets.

The following lines are from the movie, and I believe are fitting for this most important game:

"Great moments are born from great opportunity.
And that's what you have here tonight, boys.
That's what you've earned here, tonight.
One game.
If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine.
But not this game. Not tonight.
Tonight, we skate with 'em.
Tonight, we stay with 'em, and we shut them down because we can!
Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world.
You were born to be hockey players -- every one of ya.
And you were meant to be here tonight.
This is your time.
Their time -- is done. It's over."

It's time for the Komets to unleash the fury we know is burning in them. Go out there and take this game.

I'm calling it now...Reiter starts, Patrasso sits, and someone runs their goalie within the first half of the first period. Could get interesting...

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 3:02pm

mightbite side=6 to7 tough guys,if some goons us=goon them back,no turtles, run the goalie if game is out of hand,play our tough guys when the other team plays theirs :)

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 3:19pm

Inetersting comments from the last 2. Your right it might get real interesting if the Rush jump out to a early lead.

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 3:29pm

Win lose or draw,just make sure Rapid City players feel like crap tomorrow,make them stay in Ft Wayne,few more nights.

Hey Coach Sims tell the players if they dont hit someone on their shift they will sit the next shift.

The ol bench sends message to the butt the butt sends message to the brain, all you guys have to do is HIT SOMEBODY!!!!!!
