Have the Komets turned the corner on this season now that their offense seems to be stepping it up?
Hard to tell Blake, this team has been so up and down this season... I like that O'Connor seems to be heating up, is this about the time last year that he took off???
This is about the same time as last year that the whole team took off, so I'm hoping for the same this year!
Nothing would please me more than to write up lots and lots of Komet goals. Keep it up guys!
When they put 5 up against Muskegon, I'll call the corner turned.
Beating up on QC and Bloomington isn't proof positive to me.
After the last week MacMillan is on pace to score 24 goals by the end of the year.
There is nothing that could stop this team if they can keep this kind of scoring up. (Over Bloomington 6-2, over Quad City 5-0, over Bloomington 5-2 ). It is unrealistic to think that they can do this every night, but it does show that they have the capability to score. The one thing that pleases me is that the K's are getting contributions from ALL THREE lines. I love it that O'Connor has heated up and am looking forward to Chewy getting going also. (Even though he has been in a goal scoring slump, he is still contributing by his hustle and the number of assists he has garnered.) They are still getting great defense. (I know that they gave up two short-handed goals last night). The goaltending has been outstanding......Greg Rajan covers the Corpus Christi Ice Rays for the Caller-Times. In his CHL blog he reported that, " the Ice Rays 5-2 win over Shreveport put Corpus Christi over the .500 mark for the first time since the season opener in 2008-09." He goes on, "Considering they were never above .500 in 2007-08, that meant Corpus was above .500 after only one game in a 174-game span since the end of the 2006-07 season." It kind of makes me even more grateful for what we have here, in Fort Wayne, and for the Franke's committment to hockey.....also it has been reported that the Johnstown Chiefs, an old and storied franchise, is moving to Greeneville, South Carolina. Johnstown once had a franchise in the IHL back in the '50s and was the place "Slapshot" was filmed. Earlier, it had been reported that the AHL was moving the Albany franchise to Charlotte (which already has a ECHL franchise) so that means the ECHL will have to do some scrambling. They could move into Albany, but that would still leave them one franchise short. Considering their four-team divisions, how will they make it work? They are so spread out. I can't imagine a division with just three teams. The west coast teams are having some changes, too. The NHL wants to put the AHL affiliations into one or two teams.....minor league hockey insanity continues and will continue until the "AA" leagues start to talk.
One can only hope they have turned the corner and revved up the scoring guns. Here's hoping we have a great championtrip run! Go K's!!!
Woods will scre a goal this weeks home games
Good Call JungleMonkey....
A team in third place should beat a teams teams behind them in the standings...
All signs are pointing to the fact they've cured their ills but lets see what they do on the road against Muskegon and Port Huron..
I buying but is somewhat skeptical
Blog Foul, that's my line.
Heads yes, tails no.
Burgee--Takes some blue and green pills and get over your cold. Go back to bed. Hot tea & Honey my friend.
Double major blog foul: That's the zen master's line.
Wow, I never even knew Burgee had met Honey. Or her friend Hot T.
Or did I totally misinterpret that discussion?
