The Komets will have a large crowd tonight thanks to more than 3,000 tickets sold to groups over the summer. Hopefully everyone can get in on time because Danny Stewart for Danbury and Lance Galbraith for the Komets are in the starting lineup. They'll probably go within seconds of the opening faceoff. That's pretty funny considering they were best friends as teammates.
Here's a few other notes of note:
* The Komets have set a new UHL Komets record by killing off 35 consecutive power plays against. The previous record of 34 was set in 1999-2000.
* This is the first time in the Komets' 54-year history that the team has shut out three consecutive opponents. Mike O'Neill had three consecutive shutouts in 1991-92, but the games were not back-to-back.
* The Komets need to go 7:06 without giving up a goal to break the team and UHL record for consecutive shutout streak. The Komets enter the game at 181 minutes, 55 seconds. The Komets set the record of 189 minutes and 21 seconds last season.
