Let's start the conversation here.
Interesting to see if the Komets continue getting stronger throughout this series.
Let's start the discussion here.
The plan is for Ben Meisner to start in goal tonight.
Wednesday was weird because I didn't think the Komets were out-classed, I just thought they didn't play well, maybe their worst game in a while. Even with that, it was still 2-1 going into the third even though they made some glaring mistakes they haven't made in two months. If they can ever get their power play going consistently to score on goal a game or be a threat every time...
Like Larry Schmitt on the PA or George Drysdale having a joke to tell, Doug Gruber was a constant a Komets home games. He wrote stories for the local NPR affiliate, loved to talk baseball and had a wonderful perspective on things. He died Thursday after a long battle with several illnesses. He was one of the behind-the-scenes folks who make going to the Komets games a unique experience, one of the folks who often get taken for granted.
Rest in peace, my friend. You'll have the best seat in the house for spring training.

Winners play for Memorial Cup Championship on Wednesday at 7 pm.
Scott Fleming is playing. So is Andrey Makarov with Ben Meisner scheduled to go on Friday.
MRI was negative so there is not a tear in a tendon or ligament in his ankle. The Komets are treating it like a sprain, and it appears to be feeling better. He will go on the trip to Florida, but it's unknown if he'll play. Every player is going to Florida except Jason Dale who is on the 21-day injured reserve.
Wheeling scored first as Max MacKay won the race to the front of the net.
Then Matt Carter scored on another pretty backhand
