I just got back to the hotel from what might have been the strangest Komets playoff game I've seen in 15 years. Every one of Rockford's goals was strange. 1. No forward comes back to tie up Chaz Johnson in front; 2. 2 on 1; 3. Shot hits Neumeier in the face and bounces directly to a Rockford forward; 4. Another 2 on 1; 5. breakway; 6. Puck bounces off a player on one side of the net to the one on the other side who bounced it off the far post back across the crease to bounce off the near post and in. 7. Empty net.
For the most part, the Komets didn't play that poorly, but a few guys really stunk up the joint as you can judge by the box score. Frenchy was mystified, and Robinson was totally uncomfortable.
I'll be back later once I get done writing my story.
