Tailing the Komets

Komets win 6-2

Komets are now 19-1-3 when playing before 10,000 or more fans at home. I sense a trend.

Jay Holladay had all of two fights as a pro before the last three games when he's had four. He told me he's not been able to contribute as much offensively because of an injury that's been bothering him so he's trying to contribute in other ways. You've got to give him credit for that.

Konstantin Shafranov and Dominic Osman will both make the road trip this weekend, but it's unsure at this time if they will play. Shaf had a charley horse.

What's it say when the home fans are doing the wave during your power play?

Adam Lewis and Brad MacMillan shoot and score! Bertie's already got his marker for the year, so that leaves Danko Mironovic and Jake Pence as the only Ks without goals so far.

I said last year I felt P.C. was the team MVP when he had 23 goals and 74 points. He's already got 19 goals and 42 points this year and we're not even halfway.

Hope everyone has fun tonight but gets home safely.

Blake, I agree about the wave!!! Stop it already!! Seem to always have the 1 game/year fans starting it. Annoying

I totally agree too. All I ask for is people to stay in their seat during the play, especially a powerplay. The wave lost it's coolness back in the eighties. Knock it off already. I came to watch a hockey game. By the way, the pregame routine was about as lame as I've ever seen.

I hate the wave. It was a group from a Church (I Think?)that started it in the corner section below the Guy Dupuis Fan Zone.

Fun game though all in all. It is fun to see a packed house.

The wave went out of style when Gunsmoke and Perry Mason reruns went off the air!!

More Fun with numbers, these are my unofficial numbers from the internet hockey database on Komet games played
Pembroke Reg Season 784, playoffs 80 total 864
Dupuis Reg Season 758, playoffs 64 total 822

47 regular season games left to play this year, so mr blake are these numbers good and will Guy surpass mr pembroke this year?

disclaimer; my numbers are only as good as my addition and remember i'm a hockey fan.

I will let the wave slide just this one game. The guy starting it had an old school Blackhawks hoody on. That gets a pass from me!!! What doesn't is the people that followed his lead! He seemed well into his New Year's Celebration @ that point!

Enjoyable game towards the end, but the Komets still had problems handling the puck against a very poor Flint team. Albion was leaving pucks off rebounds like that is what he was taught all night. Flint really lacks a solid sized defensemen. Kudos to Styffe with the kiss cam. Quite funny. If you wanted entertainment, last nights game gave you that. If you wanted to see the Komets improve, I'm not sure we got that.

I know some of you will appreciate this, Left this morning on a train headed for the Windy city....I was layered in my clothes, Red Wings attire in hand and I brought my Komets back pack filled with extra blankets for the cold afternoon at hand. Being in Wrigley Field for a cubs game is awesome but being there for a Red Wings/Blackhawks game was priceless.. I did get many many comments on my Komets backpack and everyone had great things to say even the Rockford Icehogs (even wearing the icehogs jersey) group we ran into for dinner after the game. Its nice to see that where ever we go most people have great things to say about The Komets Organization and have good memories of it. Makes me proud to be a fan and season ticket holder. Go Komets..Lets kick some hockey butt in 2009...

Is anyone going up to Kzoo on Saturday, or is everyone staying home to watch the Colts play? Just curious.

Happy be-lated New Years to everyone!

www.b2cable.com is showing the Komets Icehawk Fight night game from Friday. It's a neat channel that streams archieved games. 2nd period about to start!!

Shhh, Burgee! I've got something big planned for this later.

It's actually Eddie Long with 793, Pembroke 784, Thornson 763 and Guy 729 coming into this season. The Komets are only counting the regular-season games toward the record so Guy needs 35 more games heading into tonight to tie Eddie.

Old fart huh Joe? I guess you have known me for a long period of time.......so you are almost old too!!!! Happy New Year Joe say hi to the family for me.

Charlie I was thinking about going to Kzoo. The only reason I'd watch the Colts is to see them lose!! GO STEELERS!!!!
