I thought they played very well, almost as good as Bill Zaniboni. Unlike some games of the recent past, I didn't feel like this was one where they made the goalie look good by hitting him in the chest. He was moving and made some great saves.
It's amazing how much difference Jake Pence and Kevin Bertram make. This allows the Komets to pair vet with rookie on all three defensive pairings, and it makes a huge difference. Boulay looked very comfortable with Bert out there.
Also impressed with Sebastien Laplante who was very solid when needed.
One other thing I noticed, was the Komets have three distinct line pairings going now. Thomas, Drouin and Versteeg-Lytwyn provide a lot of speed, MacMillan, Gravelle and Varone are great forechecking, and Shafranov, O'Connor and Curadeau are more puck control. OsmaThat's tough to match up against, at least at home when the Komets have the last change.
Last note: Brandon Warner is going to have hip surgery in Indianapolis on Tuesday.
