Tailing the Komets

That was different

How about that first period? Whoa.

I was really impressed with Lance Galbraith tonight. He stayed high in the zone and he was very effective. I also thought AJ Bozoian made a couple of nice plays breaking up Adirondack rushes, including the one that went for Mark Smith's second goal.

The forwards in general did a very nice job of getting back defensively. LOVE the line of Kelly Miller, David Carpentier and Galbraith. It was kind of cool seeing Carpentier on the wing and Miller at center. Drouin also had some help from Andrew Luciuk and Matt Hunter.

All in all, a solid performance. The interesting thing? Coach Puhalski said they played better on the road. Maybe this is the start of something good. We'll see. The players believe it at least.

What did you think?

I was very pleased with the whole team in general last night. Even if we had lost I would say we were on the right track. There was a ton of hustle, lots of checking and good passes. For the first time in a while Icy wasn't the most entertaining thing at the game. Good to see Jorde step up and be physical. The last few years the K's have gotten off to a slow start and then came on strong the second half. Hopefully, that will be the case again this year.

Overall, the defense in general was a huge step in the right direction. Bozoian, Jorde, and Guinn were all looking pretty good last night, breaking up Adirondack's plays. It was fantastic having Galbraith back, and I was incredibly surprised to see that he didn't even get one penalty! LOL

I was glad to see Smith almost clench the hat trick, too. Quite an impressive player!

As for Guinn as the other assistant captain, I'm happy for him. I think he gets WAY too much crap from fans. It's like, as soon as one person says something bad about him, everyone else jumps on the bandwagon. To each his own, I suppose, but I definitely think Guinn deserves the "A" on the jersey! Good for you, Guinny!!
