Tailing the Komets

Live Blog

As opposed to a dead one or possibly only mildly interesting or incredibly dull.

With it being spring break, I'm betting there's going to be a bunch of kids at the game tonight. Welcome back to Riley Albahrani to the press box after she was out sick last week.

Your referee is Craig "Captain Hook" Welker

Welker stinks, I hope his whistle freezes to his lips. BOOOOOOOOOOOO!

This is Robin Bouchard's 1,000th pro game tonight, including two with the Komets in 1996-97.

BTW, I went with Merloni for the Rookie of the Year, too; Boucher as MVP and goaltender of the year. First team was Dupuis, Robinson, McArthur, Booras and Drouin. Rookie team was (I'm trying to remember) Merloni, Cleaver, Bartholomays, O'Connor and Varone. I really debated on between O'Connor, Varone and Lange of Kzoo. Lange being minus-2 was a deciding factor.

No Mac tonight?

I don't see him out for warmups, but I might have missed him. We don't have the official lineup yet.

If you ever wondered why the players hustle off at the end of warm-ups, they get fined if they are not off the ice by the time the horn goes. That's part of what the linesmen are doing out there. No, I don't know what the fine is, but they really hustle!

I'm trying to figure out a way you can see if I've posted or now so I'm experimenting a bit.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:19pm

That worked.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:21pm

Scratches are Shaun Fisher, Kyle Kos and Chad Woollard for Muskegon; Brian Boulay, Brad MacMillan and Olivier Legault for the Komets.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:24pm

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?
Bueller? Bueller?

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:28pm

Hunter, are you paying attention yet? How are your brothers doing?

We had a good day, the boys are a little grouchy. We have not seen the Doctor yet today. Praying they get to try to sit up tomorrow.
After the third day we all just want to come home.This is so cool.

so did you find out what was up with Legault?

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:33pm

As an April Fool's Joke, the Komets had a pee wee team come out for the introductions. That was funny!

Good news, during the first period intermission, we're going to take questions for Olivier Legault and Brad MacMillan on the blog. So think up your questions and start typing them in with about two minutes left in the period.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:34pm

You can ask him later.

I think those were the Dupuis and Shafranov grandchildren on the ice.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:37pm

Hodgman starts with Chaulk and Drouin; Aldoff and Rodger

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:40pm

Curadeau hooking 1:41; Captain Hook strikes again.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:41pm

Kevin Armstrong goes in goal right away for Muskegon. Pool is still on the bench. Uh, Oh, the ghost of Gregg Pilling is coming!

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:43pm

Pool goes back in after Billy Collins scores the power-play goal with assists from McArthur and Costello. It was a rebound in front.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:45pm

Pool stays in the deep end as Drouin gets called for boarding Grabarek, but McArthur hooks Hukalo on a rebound attempt. Man, Curadeau just planted somebody in the boards.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:48pm

Ks have a very short pp, 18 seconds.
Where's Brendan Savage when I need him? It's hard to watch the game, type and take notes at the same time. Who's stupid idea was this? LOL.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:51pm

Later shoves Hodgman into and over Pool, and gets called for slashing to give the Komets a pp.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:52pm

Bet Al wishes he dressed Mac now after Hodgman runs Pool

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:53pm

LOL you are funny Blake.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:55pm

With both the fighter out what will they do?

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:57pm

Glad somebody thinks so. Usually it's just my dates who laugh at me.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 5:58pm

Pence holds Stauffacher for a Lumberjacks pp, 11:41.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 6:00pm

Enough penalties already, we didn't pay to watch welker.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 6:00pm

Guy just hit the post on a SH chance.

Wed, 04/01/2009 - 6:02pm

Rick Varone just picked up a Kevin Bertram rebound to make it 1-1 with 5:24 left in the first.

Remember last year when Hodgman got here and he was 3 times faster than everyone else? He's doing it again.
