Tailing the Komets

Impressive performance

Considering the Komets had to be whipped by playing 11 games in 18 days, and four in five days, Sunday's game was very impressive. They beat the team directly ahead of them in the standings on their own home ice. Motor City had been 7-3-0 in its last 10 games coming in so the Komets beat a very good team. Quad City also lost to fall further behind in the Western Division. About the only bad news is that Adironcack won so the Komets are still eight points behind the Frostbite for fifth overall.

The Komets can sure use a few days off.

I'm going with what our newbie (Whyte) said tonight: take it one game at a time. They've made some HUGE progress since the beginning of the season and even if we don't get home-ice advantage in the playoffs, I can't really be disappointed, after such an awesome comeback. GREAT JOB, KOMETS!

A solid performance from Frenchy tonight. How many career shut-outs is that now? Good for him!

One of the best moments in Bob Chase's broadcast tonight: after (I think) the third goal, Chase paused for a moment, then out of the silence came a crowd of Komets fans yelling, "HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES!" and then Chaser started talking again. That was brilliant! LOL

I agree, Blake. After a weekend like this, I hope they take it easy and enjoy their free days. LOL Good effort all weekend long, guys!

Komets could sure use a break, but I don't know if I can! Can't wait till next weekend.

That was Tim Clark yelling He Shoots, He Scores...he started that in Flint friday night...it was pretty cool...I even yelled He Shoots, He scores a couple of times Friday...

Sun, 02/26/2006 - 9:21pm

Yeah, you and me both, Mark! Yeah, I figured it was probably Tim, since I was taking my cue from him on Friday. LOL Very nice guy, might I add, and his girlfriend was very sweet.

Where did you sit at Flint? I was in section 9, row C, right next to the Komets bench. You might've saw me with 2 other women-- we were all wearing our Komets t-shirts or jerseys and cheering for the guys at the top of our lungs. :)

Smitty, that's what I've been telling you guys. It KILLS them when the Komets lose. Anyone who thinks they are just in this for the money is deluded. This is not just a business to them.

I was wearing the Virag Jersey and My son had the away Komets jersey on..we were right in front of you watching warmups...

I agree Blake and Smitty, the Frankes aren't just owners, but they are fans also. They grew up watching Komet hockey, and they saved Komet hockey..I owe that to them...

The Komets played well all weekend. I was very impressed with the effort last night. It was well worth the lack of sleep I'm experiencing now at work. I was also one of those fans yelling "He Shoots, He Scores." There were about 9 of us sitting in front of Chaser. Not to mention the group with the Flags in the corner. It great turnout of Komet fans on a Sunday night.

Great Weekend Boys!

Keep it up!

Awesome game on Sunday, they played really well. That's pretty funny that you could hear us yell that on the radio. Definitely a good road trip.

Mon, 02/27/2006 - 7:05am

Mark, yes we saw you! I remember seeing your Virag jersey ;) We have come along way since the beginning of the season, I'm so proud of our guys! You know if we don't get home ice for the playoffs..that's just an excuse to hit the highways for a ROAD TRIP!!!!! Woohoo!! Go Komets!

Mon, 02/27/2006 - 10:12am

LOL Nanci, I'm with you there: ROAD TRIP!!! :) Rock on! LOL

It was great to see everyone yesterday from a distance. I came home from Canada with the flu and didnt want to get anyone sick. Besides, none of you wanted to put up with me anyway! :-)
Next time you come up to my neighborhood maybe I can set up something at a local restaurant and we can have a pregame meal?

Mon, 02/27/2006 - 1:08pm

I was at the game awell on Friday in Flint and on Sunday in Motor City. I was in the crowd with "HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES" I'm surprised people could hear us!

Congrats to Frenchy!!
