I thought the Komets played pretty well, actually. I thought Bryan Hogan stole the game for the Gems. The Komets played 65 percent of the game in the Dayton zone, I thought they got guys to the front of the net, but he still made the saves, especially early. I didn't think Nick could have done anything on any of the goals. The two Dayton PP goals were off the same play where the guy sneaks around behind and he's wide open because the defenseman lost him. The 2 on 1 became a 2 on 1 when the defenseman dove to try to breka up the pass and missed. The second goal was a drive from the mid-slow when the defenseman didn't close up enough on the shooter before he ever got the puck and he put a great shot over Nick's shoulder.
Officialting was a tough night. Very inconsistent. Hard to understand how Dayton got 7 pp chances and Fort Wayne 4 when so much of the game was in Dayton's end.
Last thing, even with 42 shots, it seems to me a lot of guys are standing around in the offensive zone watching one guy carry the puck all the time. I don't know if that's what they are supposed to be doing, or if the guy carrying the puck all the time is supposed to be moving it, but there's something off there. Everybody is looking for the pass and not moving to get open, but again, maybe that's what they are supposed to be doing.
We're still about 150 away from 2 million so everybody still has a chance. I'll be back later with the story.
