He's not playing tonight, Bryan Hogan is and early on the Komets are tattooing him. He's held up so far.
Why isn't Larry starting? Probably because Fort Wayne-native and Dayton coach Brian Gratz is well aware of Larry's history in Fort Wayne.
Sterling is 3-6 all-time in the regular season at Fort Wayne with an .853 save percentage. He's 3-7-2 on his own home ice with a .908 save percentage. Combined he's 6-13-2 in the regular season with a .883 save percentage.
In the playoffs, he's been nothing short of remarkable against the Komets. No, really. He's 5-5 in 12 playoff games, but he's got a save percentage of .924 which is amazing. That shows just how far he pushed the Komets to their best during those two series.
