But I don't assign any blame from this game to Neil Christopher. The Komets did this to themselves. Did he miss the first calls and then call the retaliation calls? Yes, welcome to hockey. The Komets have had this problem the ENTIRE season, and they talk and talk and talk about needing to stay away from penalties and they can't do it, no matter who they are.
It's a lack of self-discipline which has creamed them all year. Troy Neumeier talked about it in today's story, and Colin Chaulk has talked about it forever. It's obvious to everyone, but they can't see to do anything about it.
Rockford, the most penalized team in the league, has four more power-play chances than the Komets so far in this series. That's totally on the Komets.
