Now, that was a typical David Hukalo garbage goal that the Komets have been desperate for. Did anybody notice after the Quad City cross check that wasn't called, Hukalo got back to his skates and gave Jacques Perreault a pretty good slash to create space before he scored the goal?
``I didn't slash the guy,'' Hukalo said with a grin.
Well, it wasn't called.
``Exactly. You have to do whatever you have to do to get a goal, especially when you've been struggling. It was nice to finally get one.''
Guess who the referee and linesmen are for Saturday's rematch in Quad City? Yep.
How about the save Nick Boucher made to stack the pads when it was 2-2 in the third? That was obviously the biggest save of the season so far.
I thought this was a pretty big win considering they lost another 2-0 lead and everybody else in the building thought they were going to find another way to lose. The vets really stepped up late and made sure it didn't happen. The MacMillan-Rechlicz fight was one of the best in recent memory. Check it out on the WANE highlights if you haven't seen it.
