If the Komets were 1-1 right now instead of 0-0-2? That's essentially where they are. Would you feel better if they just stopped the game after overtime with a tie?
Odd that they aren't better in shootouts considering how often they practice it. There's always some prize for the winning shooter and goaltender, too, and lots of trash-talking going on as the tournament winds down. Based on what I've seen in practice, Gary Graham picked the right five shooters, too, but none of them scored. Strange. At least it's helped prepare the goaltenders.
