Some other notes from practice

* Colin Chaulk played on a line with Rick Varone and either Olivier Legault or Sean O'Connor during practice. O'Connor is not yet ready to return to the lineup. Chaulk played mostly center, but he also took a few shifts on the wing with either Varone or O'Connor at center.

Komets clinch a playoff spot

Maybe the most interesting part of the game was Kevin Bertram going a little nuts on referee Tim Mayer for a cheap boarding call. Mayer was obviously reffing the scoreboard and not the game most of the night, and Bert had had enough.

This was the game in hand the Komets had on Port Huron, and as importantly, they picked up a point on third-place Muskegon which lost in a shootout at Kalamazoo. With 10 games left, the Komets trail Port Huron by one point

Chaulk: I'm playing Wednesday

We talked with Colin Chaulk after the game to do next week's video, and he said he'll be ready to play Wednesday night at home. He may not be ready to play a regular shift, but he's ready to go.

As for tonight's game, am I nuts, or did the Komets not play all that poorly defensively? Sure, Port Huron got 53 shots, but it seemed to me that most of them were from the points or the perimeter and the Komets did a pretty good job of clear

Ks up 1-0 so far

And they are darn lucky to be up. They were out-shot 18-4 in the first period, and only a sneaky goal by David Hukalo got through Ryan Mior. Nick Boucher has been amazing so far.

The Komets have brought in defenseman Keith Rodger from American International for a looksee. He's 6-0, 190 pounds, had one assist and 18 penalty minutes in 22 games this season and was minus-12.

Psychological advantage

Thanks to Chuck Bailey, these are Nick Boucher's numbers in Port Huron over the last two years:

11 games, 10-1 record, .969 save percentage and 1.97 goals against average. That means A) the Komets always have to feel confident any time they go into McMorran, and B) they better never hope he plays for Port Huron. Nick has said in the past he likes the smaller rink because there's more action so he's busier

Komets trailed by one in the final minute, but Konstantin Shafranov roofed a wrist shot from just outside the crease in the final minute to force overtime, and then score 1:17 into overtime off a backhand pass from Rick Varone to give the Komets the win.

"It was a great win for us," Komets coach Al Sims said. "When you are losing with 42 seconds left and you end up winning, it's unbelievable. It says volumes about our team and the belief they have in themselves, especially on the road.
