I think Tad and Leo are due for a big game

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 9:45am

Good luck to everyone tonight. While I hope my team, the Rush, win, obviously, I appreciate the rivalry that I now know has replaced that we had with the Eagles as "Enemy #1". Again, best of luck!

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 9:48am

We need to get the crowd into it early....Everyone be loud, be proud....and for crying out loud....get up when they come out tonight...Lets get behind them!!!
One Shift, One period, one game at a time!!

Let's Rock the Jungle tonight!!!
Let's Go Komets!!!

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:16am

Once again I will be in the house tonight. It would be nice to see a loud and proud crowd tonight cheering for their team.You can all bet that there will be two proud Rush fans there doing the same thing the Komet fans will be doing. Go Rush !!!

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:32am

LETS GO KOMETS!! One shift at a time, one period at a time, one game at a time! I got faith in you, now im ready to see you guys get it done on the ice!! Komets 4-2 tonight.. 8100 fans tonight

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:37am

Fro what section are in in? I would love to meet you face to face to thanks you for coming such a long way (to see two loses no less)

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:40am

If that happens all I can say is head west young man. I will await your arrival in Rapid City.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:52am

So that's a no on meeting up tonight to talk? When (if) we do win tonight, I would love to make the trek west, but can not due to job, family, $$$, but thanks for the offer!

Interesting night ahead. I hope the crowd ends up topping 8000.

The fan in me says the Komets will romp tonight with the momentum from the other night ahead.

My head however says that Wed night was the swan song. The celebration, horn and all was one that you saw when the cup was won. We have all seen team against the Komets steal one game preventing a sweep.
Nothing so far has shown me they can beat this team twice in a row so if I had to put $$ on this game I would pick Rapid City.

All of that rambling said, if the Komets win and send it back to RC I would not be totally shocked.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 10:54am

Does that mean they have sold an additional 6,500 tickets, or is that counting the 3,500 season ticket holders, meaning only about 3,000 have been sold?

Go K's

It would be great to make the trip to Rapid City. But due to job and money it's probably not possible for most. Especially since Sunday is Easter. Fro I am glad you made the trip. I always think it is neat to see opposing fans experience "The Jungle." I hope you have enjoyed your stay. I took a trip to Rapid City a few years back and really enjoyed it. You have a nice city up there. Let's hope tonight's game is as good as the third period Wednesday and Go Komets!

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 11:03am

Way to go out on a limb there Snuff...I think they will lose, or win, or go back to RC, or not.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 11:17am

The opening season game, a couple from Rapid City sat right next to me. They were a very nice couple, and when they left Fort Wayne, the drove on to Dayton to see that game. That is dedication to your home team for sure -- One heck of a drive! Fro, where are you two sitting in the Coliseum? I haven't seen or heard anyone cheering for the Rush. Wish I could have make the trip to Rapid City, but it is just way too expensive for me. Best airfare I have found is $600, and the price of gas makes a car trip almost just as costly.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 11:35am

Menei is going to play for Rapid City tonight. He was cleared to play yesterday and flew to Ft Wayne. Batman is a game time decision, I wouldn't be surprised to see either/possibly both goaltenders get playing time tonight for the Rush.

Hoss my trunk (no limbs here) does not steer me wrong often.
I really believe as I watched them celebrate the other night as if they had just won the cup again that they shot their last bullet.
But with team who the heck knows. If I have a gun to my head they lose tonight and maybe by 3 goals. But based on their track record this year they could pull off the opposite.

Fro, I can vouch for the people who have been conversing on here. None of these folks would want to meet you to take a swing at you. I can't vouch for the others. As you can tell, these are true hockey fans and are good people, as I sense you are by the way you have conducted yourself on here. If you would like to meet with any of these people specifically, I would be happy to forward your email address to some of them that you choose. I can say I think you would have a good time and would enjoy meeting them, but that is your choice. You are all the same kind of folks under your team's jersey. LOL.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 11:54am

Exactly, with this team, who the heck knows?

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:05pm

Menei in the lineup tonight...They must have some real magic workers on that team..Menei back from a concussion in a week, a guy shatters his leg and cant move it on his way back to the bench as he crawls but is right back out there the next shift skating 100%, etc etc..A very impressive training staff

I wonder if there was an Anonymous survey by the players --- who they want behind the pipes. Naturally players would say they support both Bouch & Rides equally but in a private moment I guarantee each one has a viewpoint of who should get the nod. With that said, it would be interesting if any player went to Coach Sims and expressed themselves on this. Wouldn't surprise me if this is why Rides got the nod on Wednesday. Anyway, looking forward for tonight's game. IMO I'd start Bouch -- he just looks more poise behind the pipes. Ultimately, the Ks will win or loose as a TEAM. Go Komets

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:22pm

I can say this, if anyone from Ft Wayne makes the trip to Rapid City ( if needed may I add) The old Frodawg would be more than glad to show the Indiana wild bunch around the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. This has really been a pleasure to visit this site and I will visit it quite often in the future. With that said, I have to shout out Go Rush,but who knows we could see the Wild Bunch from Indiana in attendence at game 5 in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Go Rush !!!!!

What hotel did you stay at while you've been visiting our city? Did you get a chance to get out and see any of the sights?

Mr. Blonde
Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:35pm

Sights? What sights?

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:38pm

while we may not have Mount Rushmore there's plenty of city for him to check out while he's "here"

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:41pm

So Minei is back.....hmmmmm.

I thought OC's suspension was based on his injury report from a Doctor who said he was concussed and would not play the remainder of at least this series.....

Anyone else smell a rat here?

I think RC Rush are a bunch of well trained cheaters and hacks.

The diving, the faking of injuroes, the whining.

People might not like this.....but if Minei plays tonight....I say someone should run him thru the boards every chance they get.

The CHL and the Rush are Jokes.

Go Komets!!!

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:48pm

I completely agree Hit, check Menei into the 10th row...this smells VERY fishy

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:51pm

Take it easy Hit...

I was under the same impression, but I would say if that was the case then OC should be allowed to be in the lineup tonight as well. Ya know, since the length of the suspension was determined by the severity of the injury and all...

Besides, if we start taking runs at them (not exactly something that Sims would have them doing anyway, despite what some of the Rush fans would have you believe) they would probably fall to the ice as though they had been shot before our players even touched them.

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:52pm

I would go with Boucher in goal
I was told Menei was there on Wed. standing down by the zamboni??????

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:52pm

They fall to the ice anyways, might as well send them there

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 12:55pm

Hit, there was a guy in an RC track suit I saw walk into the RC locker room after the 3rd period...Did RC have anyone not in the lineup besides Mr Concussion? I dont think so...I'd be willing to bet he bussed in with the team and this "flew in" crap is all a lie...I'd LOVE to see the medical report. I'm not usually a conspiracy person but this is BEYOND fishy

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 1:10pm

I haven't heard that Menei is even playing tonight. Are you sure he will be on the ice ?
