Tailing the Komets

What Al Sims had to say

``To get three out of four points from Colorado, I think everybody thought was unlikely. I think our team really showed their true colors, championship form, whatever you want to call it. We've got a lot of guys who have won here and wanted to show Colorado that we can play with them and we can beat them. I don't think Colorado wants to play us, to tell you the truth. I think they'd rather play somebody else. We shut them down tonight.

``Boucher made some good saves but he didn't have to make a lot of great saves. A lot of saves hit him in the chest. I thought our penalty killing was outstanding. Boucher was great when he had to be. We got a quick 2-0 lead which really helped us. The 1-0 lead, getting ahead of them was huge for us because we've never been ahead of them, and making them play from behind was important to us.

I didn't think we could take sixth place. To jump two spots in one game was unbelievable.

Any word on how Bobby P. shoulder is? He took 2 huge shots right in front of me & was in pain after both. I also think he missed a shift after the first...
Bottom line, GOOD weekend for home team. Showed heart. This weekends team is one that we can cheer for....

Glass, I noticed that too. We he came back out after the first hit, I thought that was a great sign, till he got crushed again and skated right to the bench without moving his shoulder. I hope he is OK for the playoffs!

Yes Coach Sims, the Komets played well from the third period of Friday's game right through to the end Saturday. I hope that the lesson learned from this weekend was to play with aggression both with the puck and without the puck. To challenge the other team no matter where on the ice and to force them into errors.

Colorado, a high scoring outfit, scored a total of three goals in four twenty minute periods, one five minute overtime, and a shootout. It's time to play that style against everyone.
