The Komets just picked up forward Daniel Goneau from the hospital in Quad City and are on their way home. He's out indefinitely with a broken cheekbone suffered when he was hit in the face with a shot halfway through the first period. Komets trainer Shawn Dundon said Goneau will meet with an ear-nose-and throat specialist early next week and may need surgery.
The Komets also played with only five defensemen because Mike Dombkiewicz had to sit out with a sore back.
"I saw good things from a lot of guys,'' Komets coach Pat Bingham said. "That was a total team win with the guys playing the quintessential road game. Everybody who dressed contributed tonight. There was a lot of sacrificing to make plays.''
More later when I get done with football stuff.
