Tailing the Komets


I don't see how the Komets can win playing this style. They are trying to out-skate and out-gun the IceHawks, and I don't think that's going to work. They need to try to win this game 2-1 not 6-5. Wonder if they will figure it out before it's too late.

They are getting more traffic in front of Larry Sterling, but their power play isn't generating any chances and very few shots.

Nick Boucher has been pretty sharp so far, but there was nothing he could do on the IceHawks' power-play goal.

Here's what the Komets are playing for. When they are tied 2-2 in a series, they have gone 9-1 over their last 10 Game 5s, and seven of those were in Memorial Coliseum. This is the series.

2-0 PH in the second.

Does any one have the scoop on Larry? Watching on B2 and couldn't really make out what happened...

As much as I like to razz him, hope he's ok...

The KometCast on the web is out, so I am now in the dark as well.

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 6:41pm

Yeah, hope Larry's okay. However....K's should definitely take advantage of this situation! Getting that 5 on 3 pp goal certainly helped. They were flying there at the end. Hope they keep it up in the 3rd. This is a must win! Go K's!!!

Chaulk and their guy crashed behind the net and ran over Larry. Looked bad, but hope he's not too bad. K's scored on the 5 on 3 to make it 2-1. End of two.

larrys teamate ran into him, and i might add not very hard. he layed on the ice for awhile. then got up had help skating to the locker room.

Poor Larry... hope he's okay...

What blog is this? You people are going soft! I hope Larry is done for the series. Get with the program people, this is the playoffs... Larry is the enemy. Who cares if he can play..

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 6:54pm

I would much rather have Larry in net when we win than to have him out and be able to say we couldn't beat him so we took him out. I understand we did beat him twice on our way to the two cups, but I really like beating Larry.

That's the first time I have been called soft in a while...besides physically...thanks!!!

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 6:54pm

I said that I hoped he was ok, but not ok enough to finish the series...! Big break for the Komets, lets hope they take advantage of it. Lets Go Komets!!!

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 6:56pm

Don't get me wrong, I loathe Larry. LOATHE. But I still hope he's ok. I'm glad he's out of the net...but that still means we have to start SHOOTING THE PUCK. Last time I check it doesn't just find its way to the back of the net on its own...

OK KometCast back on, but it going in and out. I gather from the bits and pieces that it's now tied 2-2.

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 7:20pm

Larry the enemy?

Al Qaeda is the enemy.
The Taliban are the enemy.
North Korea is the enemy.
My former wife is the enemy.

Larry? He's just an opponent.... :-)

By the time it went out the second time I resorted to old technology, I turned on my radio.... :-)

Wish I could turn on a radio, Steve. Unfortunately, I'm at work typing in all the high school sports scores that NOBODY is going to read in tomorrow's paper. OK, maybe some kid's grandpa is going to read it, but nobody else will. In any case, Chaulk takes a penalty late in the third. AND now, Bert goes to the box to give PH a 5-on-3 for 1:16 with less than 5 min to go.

Way to go! Do these guys really want to continue in the playoffs? PH score ANOTHER power play goal. 3-2 PH with 4 to go.

Chad Ryan

PH 4-2 @ 16:58 - ANOTHER PP Goal.

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 7:43pm

3 of PH's goals have been on the power play.

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 7:46pm

Guess not Chad. They can't score against a rookie goalie brought up from the juniors, this is sad.

Guess we'll hope for a repeat of two years ago.

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 8:30pm

I STILL BELIEVE....DO YOU. I think we are gonna hear the speech "give one for the gipper" or whatever it is....

Its not over till we say its over.....GO KOMETS

Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...

Wed, 04/28/2010 - 9:34pm

I spoke too soon on the other tread about the bloggers having enough class to not beat Larry while he's down. Seriously people.....it's a game and Larry's health is a lot more important. What joy is there in winning against a newbie goalie? I was glad PH still got the win tonight...but I hope the Komets take the series... WITH A HEALTHY STERLING!

Go! Hawks GO!

LOL! Poor Larry...
