Tailing the Komets


Drove like Tony Stewart to get back ASAP to the coliseum. The Bloomington game didn't end until after the Komets had already left Kalamazoo.

They were pleased to win the Huber Trophy, but still a little subdued. This isn't the trophy they want, but it's a step along the way.

"It feels good that we accomplished something," Guy Dupis said. "We're still not happy we lost the game, but we're happy with first place."

It was nice to get help from somebody," Colin Chaulk said. "It doesn't matter how, it's just how many." P.C.'s arm looks much better a couple of hours later than it did right after the game. He said it's a little stiff but feels better.

Wonder who that maniac was that passed me.

Still can't sleep? The first 55 minutes of that game didn't do the trick?

I'm glad to hear P.C. seems to be okay. Hopefully that's the case. He's had a fantastic season, regardless, but I know he wouldn't be happy sitting on the sidelines.

Of course when I first heard that he got hit with someone's slapshot, I thought, "Well, that's ironic." :)

Tough loss tonight, but to win every game left on the schedule would have been quite a feat. Even the best teams lose a few. Just keep your heads up and be ready to play tomorrow.

First place is great, however I hope the team holds on to the feeling they had tonight after losing for the first time in a while. Hopefully they hate that feeling and want to start another, oh say 9 game winning streak starting tonight!

Should have driven like Jeff Gordon, not Tony Stewart! lol.

I am very concerned with the complacency the Komets have shown the last few games. I mean, if they can't get fired up for a game that would clinch a league championship, then they are in trouble. I think that Leo Thomas will be in line for a suspension. Blake, do you have any further word on that? It takes more than skill and talent to win. It takes "heart" too. All year long they worked so hard overcoming injuries and callups to get to where they are today. It would be a shame if they just let it all go. They are good but they are not that good to where they should think all they have to do is "show up" to win. Hard work wins games. One shift at a time.

My guess on Leo's spearing major last night will get him a 2 game suspension. If Brad Jones holds to precendent then this stick infraction will get him 2 games. He gave Legault 2 games for his incident against Muskegon and he barely touched Later. If that is the case then the K's will skate short handed tonight and game 1 of the play-off's.

I don't think he'll get any suspension. Drake never even left the ice.

Drake was cheap shotting our players all night long. We didn't have anyone to beat him down. Leo barely touched him with the stick. Drake was trash talking him all the way to the box before the GM was called. The K-Zoo fans are something else as well. They were cussing at us and telling us we where worthless as we left. I told them that they are in fact the fourth place team and last time I check were about 12 to 15 points out of first. Oh well, I had fun but I really didn't appreciate the cussing in front of my kids as I left the arena. If you want to call it that.

There were Kzoo fans there? We had a great turn out last night in kzoo. Out of all the times I've been there I've only had 1 bad experience with their fans.
