Tailing the Komets

Komets lose

The Fort Wayne Komets played one of the strangest games in recent memory on Friday night.

All nine goals were scored on special teams as the PrairieThunder beat the Komets 5-4 in Bloomington.

“We could never get ahead of them in the game,” Komets coach Al Sims said. “We kept tying them and coming back. We had some good chances at the end to tie it but couldn't get one in.”

The Komets trailed 2-0 in the first before rallying on goals by Leo Thomas and Sean O'Connor but fell behind again before a goal by Frankie DeAngelis made it 3-3 heading into the third period.

Bloomington got power-play goals from Bill Bagron and Ryan Finnerty to take a 5-3 lead with 7:03 left. Thomas scored his second of the night for the Komets with 4:53 left, but the Komets could not score an even-strength goal to tie.

Thomas finished with two goals and an assist, DeAngelis had a goal and two assists and Rick Varone had two assists for the Komets.

Bloomington coach Jarod Skalde was given a gam
There is currently a five-way tie for first place in the International Hockey League as Muskegon, Port Huron, Bloomington, Dayton and Fort Wayne all have six points. The Komets host Muskegon tonight.

This is early proof this league is going to be tough this season. No road game will be easy....home games will be a war. The IHL is evening-out across the board this season. Makes for a fun season.

The ref last night was awful. To get a penalty called, players just needed to fall down...it was that simple. He was terrible....for both teams.

No flow to that game because of the parade to the penalty box.

Gomez gave MacMillan one whale of a fight....I think it was even......and Gomez fought Guy Dupuis of all people, and beat him up pretty good.....and Schrock and Boulay fought again, slight edge to Schrock in that one, Boulay got a ew punches in at the end.

DeAngelis is putting up some numbers....and is playing a pretty good brand of hockey....I don't know how they can cut that kid.....I would say Bobby Phillips might be on the hot-seat.
