Not a ton of life to this game so far. It's 1-1 after two periods. The Komets hvae had the better chances for the most part. Jason Beckett is playing his first preseason game because of sore knees and looks solid if a little rusty. You can tell he knows what he's doing out there. Rick Varone continues to impress with his hustle and nose for the puck. Plus, he hits. Most of the veterans are using this game to get in shape so there's not a lot of hitting or intensity. The Komets had a line of P.C. Drouin, Mathieu Curadeau and Konstantin Shafranov on the ice for a while during the second period, and they were scary good for about 45 seconds. They could just about do whatever they wanted out there. Brian Boulay has also impressed me tonight.
The scoreboard continues to impress, but do we really have to watch commericals at the game, too? That's going to get old real quick on a scoreboard that is absolutely covered by ads anyway. I hate watching commericals at the movies, and I hate having to watch them at games, too. I know, I'm old.
