That second period? That's exactly how they looked in practice yesterday.
Can you believe that Mathieu Curadeau now has as many goals as Luciano Aquino, and 24 of the 28 have come at even strength? We might be watching the next Komet to play eventually in the NHL. When scouts come in, they aren't looking for guys who can be first-line players, they look for third-liners. The knock against Curadeau coming in was that he was all defense and no offense. I think he's corrected that. He and David Hukalo might be the most consistent players every night for the Komets.
How about Terry Marchant being out of the lineup but the Komets still managed to block at least 10 shots tonight? Usually Marchant and Kevin Hansen lead the team in this, but everyone was diving all over the place to cut off the shooting lanes.
They get to go for the record Saturday night against Port Huron and right now the IceHawks are almost as hot as the Komets, and they are very good on the road. The IceHawks are 13-14-1 at home but 17-12-2 on the road.
