Questions for a live blog, I'll be here most of the night watching the exhibition game.
Yeah--keep us posted!
1-0 FW. Scott Fleming from Chris Auger, short-handed.
1-0 after one. FW kills off four Wheeling power plays.
We might have taken a couple dumb penalties, but I must say it is nice to see the Komets finishing their checks.
Blake.....what is the intensity level in this exhibiton game compared to what you were seeing practices/scrimmages?
Impossible to tell because of all the penalties. It was all five on five in the scrimmages, not many face-offs.
Blake how does the team look as a whole? I hear schrock is all over the place and Stang sounds like he is standing on his head...
Again, hard to tell with all the penalties they are killing. You've only got about 12 players who are playing all the time so far.
2-1 Wheeling halfway through the second.
Wheeling 1-7 on pp, FW 0-1.
You can listen to the game on the Nailers radio
Backdoor feeds makes it 3-1 Wheeling with second pp goal. Weird thing is Ks lead shots 22-20 despite being down seven pps.
I am listening to the game, this announcer is annoying! That is all!
Schrock and Pat McGrath fight off the ensuing faceoff. Both removed their own helmets. Quick, decent fight. Linesmen stepped in as soon as Schrock's jersey came over his head while he was still throwing.
Come on Komets!!!
haha I agree Janice. Loved how he ranted on and on about not getting an official call on why the wheeling goal was waived, yet 2 minutes earlier the same thing happened to the Komets and everything was as it should be.
Baseball? Really, baseball? Who cares about stinking baseball? It's HOCKEY time!
Auger ties it with a great wrist shot.
Been a long time since I've seen a neutral zone that short. Wow.
Once again Firman blocks a shot, Fourth day in a row.
Good job Komets! Keep it up and just get another goal to put this to bed!
did they put make up on that dome before you go on tv? it puts out a lot of light?
fighting tips from Chaz Johnson? did the guy throw a sucker punch then skate away?
Simon Danis-Pepin and Justin Smith fought. They took each other's helmets off this time. Smith threw more punches but I don't think they did any damage as Danis-Pepin had him tied up pretty well. Kind of a draw.
Referee still gave them two minutes for unsportsmanlike, which I didnt' think they were allowed to do under this rule.
Then Kevin Walrod followed up on a rebound to give the Komets a 4-3 lead.
Want this one for Graham
Best Ever--Keep going Komets--Congratulations!!!
