Happy locker room. Everybody was amazed by what Frenchy did. He totally controlled the game. Komets showed good team toughness by not reacting to Watson's cheap shot. It gave them some much-needed time off the penalty kill. Rockford had 53 shots, plus I'll bet the Komets blocked seven or eight before they got to him. They were mostly from long range, but Frenchy did make some excellent close-in saves as well. It was one of those games where I could tell about five minutes into the second period that there was no way Rockford was going to beat St. Pierre tonight. He was dominating.
Komets also get a huge break tonight in that they get to sleep in Rockford before driving to Bloomington tomorrow. It's about three hours away. It's Homecoming at Illinois State and there are no rooms so they get to sleep in. Also, Bloomington has to drive all night from Muskegon.
Everybody was healthy after the game.
Maybe I'll be able to post more after the game. Hit, behave yourself. LOL.
