Tailing the Komets

Komets move into 7th

WIth a 3-2 victory at Quad City on Saturday night, the Fort Wayne Komets moved past idle Dayton and into seventh place in the Central Hockey League's Turner Conference. The old guys came through for the Komets as P.C. Drouin, Colin Chaulk and Leo Thomas scored for Fort Wayne. Thomas's goal with 1:09 remaining off a Mike Ratchuk pass was the game-winning goal.

Fort Wayne out-shot Quad City 36-34. It's the Komets' ninth win in their last 10 road games.

And this just in. CHLTV in Quad City= Fail...I lost it with 5 minutes to go...

Sat, 02/19/2011 - 10:46pm

Sweet! Considering Quad City does have the league's best defense according to stats. We even battled back down 2-0 early in 1st Period. Great Win! Hopefully we got enough gas and ready to hold 7th tomorrow against Dayton.

we lost it too Mark. I am currently super mad at CHLTV as they have screwed me out of 3 games so far, and refuse a refund...

Way to go guys!! Get some rest and kick Daytons backside Sunday. Thanks Blake for the score. I cannot even get WOWO up here 40 miles north. At least i did not pay money for the CHL TV crap.

I lost my feed also. Is there anyway that you can get the video of the last goal and post it on here?

Sat, 02/19/2011 - 11:21pm

You can view all goals scored on centralhockeyleague.com
This is for ftw vs qdc link. All videos can be seen after midnite central time of the corelating date.

Sat, 02/19/2011 - 11:25pm

Thank you for the link. I will have to check that out.

I emailed CHLTV....but I am sure it will fall on deaf ears....I had trouble a couple of weeks back not being able to access a game, and they sent me some BS that my software wasn't up to date......whatever. They are full of shaving cream.

I have a season pass for CHLTV and they could careless when I don't get a feed, because they all ready have my moolah.

They too are only in it for the Kasual fans.......LOL

Hey Blake......who was it that predicted the Komets not to win tonight???

hmmm? hmmmmm? hmmmmmmm?


Just Sayin.

Do you want your Blackbirds baked in a pie???

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:09am

exactly Hit! They had posted something on facebook about watching the games on CHL TZ and I posted on there not to watch it because if it doesn't feed properly they won't refund your money. A bunch of people started to post stuff too, and they deleted all of our comments.

Anyway...GREAT JOB GUYS!! Can't wait for tomorrow!

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:25am

CHL has give me a credit twice

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:26am

Will someone mention to Quad City that they have the Pepsi logo on the front of their jersey upside down. The blue is supposed to be on the bottom and it should be tilted a bit. Just google image search Pepsi logo. Maybe its like those messages on Jeeps - if you can read this, flip me over.

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 3:27am

What Blake said is that he'd be shocked if the Komets won both Saturday and Sunday. We still don't know how Sunday's game will go. But if the K's win, I'm sure he will be shocked (or at least duly impressed).

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 3:52am

Personally, I haven't been impressed with the Gems will to win of late, but if they are ever going to make a stand, this would be the time. They've had a whole day to think about it, get their rest and prepare.

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 6:14am

Good win for the K's.... Keep it rolling into today!

I bet the only K's fan unhappy is Snuff, since he doesnt like the older players....lol

I dont know if anyone should be complaining about a "rough" Komets schedule this weekend... Check out what Bloomington is in the beginning of:

Feb 18th Bloomy at Quad City
Feb 19th Bloomy at Evansville
Feb 21st QC at Bloomy
Feb 22nd Bloomy at Dayton
Feb 24th Bloomy at Bossier-Schreveport
Feb 26th Bloomy at Allen
Feb 27th Bloomy at Texas
Mar 4th Komets at Bloomy
Mar 6th QC at Bloomy
Mar 8th Bloomy at Texas
Mar 11th Bloomy at Odessa
Mar 12 Bloomy at Odessa
Mar13th Bloomy at Allen
Mar 16th Missouri at Bloomy

This is nuts! I can't play along with the boo hoo party for the Komets having to play at home, travel to Quad City, then play at home on consecutive days when I look at that mess that Bloomy has to deal with...

Thats 14 games in roughly 26 days with 2 trips to Texas... Only 4 of those games are at home.... This is freaking crazy!

This isnt all the CHL's schedulers fault because I believe a couple of those games were games postponed due to that big snow storm we had a lil while back and thrown in where they could get dates...

Kinda puts this weekend into perspective. It could definetly be worse...

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 7:51am

Here's hoping that Dayton partied hearty on Saturday night, and that the Komets have enough gas left to beat them again on Sunday afternoon. Go K's.

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 9:52am


Musselwhite was a +1 in his only game so far with Cincy (ECHL)

Francis in 2 games w/Las Vegas (ECHL) has 3 assists and is even with all 3 assists coming on the powerplay...

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 11:41am

I picked this up on a news feed and thought I'd pass it along. It's about a Massachusetts college hockey team getting sick because of fumes coming off the ice:


Sun, 02/20/2011 - 11:42am

Ok, so maybe Blake predicted that the K's wouldn't win BOTH games this weekend. Whatever! It's way more important to me to have the K's win, and pick up the two points, than to give Blake an " I told you so."

If you are going to the game, and it seems a lot of you have become "experts" on the individual teams the K's play without seeing them, then I would pay close attention to the first ten minutes. If the Komets are fatigued it will show by then. Usually a team will catch its second wind and if they are ahead ot tied I think it will bode well.

Maybe Sims may give Podshendialov a start today. He is fresh and could give a needed energy boost. I don't think that will happen, though. Boucher will probably get the start today, but personally, I would go with Reiter once more.

Each game remains huge as we need to get caught up in the "lost" column.

JR1. Real interesting post containing the Bloomington schedule. Two Texas trips in a span of two weeks. (Note to Blake... Now that is what I would call a tough schedule!!)

Gotta have the win today to make a three out of four week. Otherwise the K's just spun their wheels and lost a week of the season.

Keep denting the twine.

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 11:49am

I hope Mirasty plays here next year :)

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:16pm

Great game last night!! CHL TV was really bad thow. Did not get to see winning goal. GO KOMETS!!!

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:31pm

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:39pm

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:46pm

Crap, would have rather watched the Buffalo/Washington game than the sissy Wings....

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:48pm

OT question: what is it that Shawn Dundon passes out right before the start of the game? He tosses it to the guys, and it looks like they eat it or snort it or something. Anybody know?

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:55pm

mightbite...can watch the games for free on NHL.com

Check it out....

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:55pm

Smelling salts..They give the guys a nice pick me up/wakeup before the games

Sun, 02/20/2011 - 12:56pm

Alan.....it was a jab....yanking his chain....you know.....the samething Blake has been doing in his last 3 weeks of posts....Happy Birthday to someone who doesn't have a birthday......Anton Kharin......Alot of Bloggers needing to eat crow because of the Komet Turn-Around even though the beat-writer was calling for changes and questioning things....

I wanted a win last night, and tonight and every night.

I guess Burgee is the only one allowed to yank chains around here.....
