Tailing the Komets

Komets win 4-1

It's too bad Vegas doesn't take IHL bets because you could make a fortune on Nick Boucher and the Komets in Port Huron. They are 11-2 there ove the past two seasons, and Boucher is 9-1 in net.

Dominic Osman is likely out of Sunday's game after getting kneed by Port Huron's Robert Snowball. Komets coach Al Sims said he can not put any weight on that leg yet.

Sims said he tried to call Ryan Potts about coming back, but he's out of town.

Boucher has stopped 64 of 65 shots the last two nights.

The Komets re-signed Adam Lewis to a 14-day tryout contract before the game. They had to get permission from IHL President Paul Pickard for that because they were below 15 skaters. Lewis was placed on waviers this week so the Komets could sign Mark Versteeg-Lytwyn, who what happens? Lewis assists Versteeg-Lytwyn on the game's first goal.

It will be interesting to see how many Komets have any energy left for tomorrow's post-game skate.

Can't put any weight on that leg yet? That doesn't sound good. Sheesh, that Snowball's a real tool. That aside, it's great that this team is finally coming together as a team and playing with some confidence and passion. That really is the key. Good job to everyone! I knew you could do it. Now keep it up! We'll see what happens tomorrow, but from what I've seen of late, we won't be going quietly into the night. Go Komets! Let's make it a 3-game winning streak! :)

And that is why you need an enforcer in the line-up when someone like Snowball "knees" one of your skill players you have to take exception to that and let him know that will not be tolerated accidental or not. I know if something like that happen to a PH player Snowball would have been all over them. There had better be some type of pay back when PH comes to FW

Snowball is not a goon, I find it hard to believe his knee to knee was vicious and intentional. While he's not a skill player, he follows "the code" and doesn't goon it up.

None of us saw the hit so it's alittle early to be calling Snowball a goon because of hit. How many knee to knee's did Pascal Morency do? I can think of atleast 2...Was he a goon?

By saying he isn't a "goon", I assume you don't mean that he isn't an enforcer. True, there is a difference, but not everyone makes that distinction. But who said he was a goon? I said he's a tool, which is generally what fans think about opposing teams' enforcers.
