Tailing the Komets

Komets lose 3-1

The Fort Wayne Komets missed a chance to increase their lead and then lost it Saturday night. The Muskegon Lumberjacks scored three goals during a six-minute span in the third period to beat the Komets 3-1 in the final exhibition game for both teams.

Thanks to Keith Rodger's first-period power-play goal off a Colin Chaulk assist, the Komets led 1-0 until there were about 10 minutes left in the third period.

"We out-shot them 37-21, but we didn't finish very well," Komets coach Al Sims said. "Leo (Thomas) had a couple of breakaways from our blue line in and didn't get anything out of them. We could have been up 2, 3 or 4-0."

The Muskegon goals were by Brian Bicek, Matt Robertson and David Rohlfs. Komets goaltender Tim Haun made nine saves on nine shots, and Nick Boucher stopped nine of 12 shots against him.

Sims said defenseman Kevin Bertram played well for the Komets' defense, and "Up front we didn't get any scoring from the forwards. Nobody really stood out."

">Sims said he'll make cuts to his 27-man roster on today.

Muskegon will definitely be a dangerous team. Can't take them lightly for a moment. As for the goaltending situation, I'm sure Sims will make the best decision he can. Hindsight is always 20/20, but he'll keep the person he feels will serve the team best -- no favoritism involved regardless of the outcome.

And it was very nice to meet you, Dschebig. By the way, you might want to use up those pumpkin bread drops quickly (if your dog eats them). Being moister, they don't keep very long. At least take them out of the plastic bag and keep an eye on them.

And yes, I'm fully aware a thorough blog foul flogging is now in order.

Wendy-- NO FOUL yet! It is only you and me. Don't worry they (pumpkin drops) are gone. Bubba's K-9 nose almost ripped the bag out of my hand. No foul until Burgee reads this than look out. Yes, he really drinks those foo-foo things. He has a very pretty daughter, who is shy. Most likely she is smarter than he is. It didn't look like he had a really heavy tan for all the tanning he claimed to have done all summer. You are right on about Muskegon. They are going to score in bunches all season. Oh yes there will be two assists on every goal. They will give one to Robinson even if he is not on the ice.

Blog Foul, Wendy I have no idea what penalty you should get but the word moister does not belong on a hockey blog! Schebig, I'll pass out the blog fouls and you push the scoreboard horn, your penalty-listening to lil birdie garden snake whine all year in the box. She is smarter than me, she was holding out for a stick! You didn't ask to see my tan line so next game I'll come down and show you.

Burgee--A STICK, give me a brake. I did the best I could offer. At over $100 per copy you don't just walk in and take a players stick. That is if you want to walk out in one piece. Some of those guys spend hours grooming their sticks. I still think she is a very pretty young lady. Those good looks had to come from her mother. I say that because, well lets just between the two of us we have one face only a dog could love.

Well if you're going to pull it out of context like that, it sounds kind of kinky. But no more kinky than a hockey player spending hours "grooming his stick". LOL.

Wendy-They prepare their sticks. "Grooming", "Dressing" or taping. They also heat and bend them. I choose "Grooming" because I thought it described what they did. Some of these guys talk to the thing. I still think "Grooming" kind of included all of them. Oh well shoot me!
