Can't tell you how many times over the years I've seen a team score on the first shot and then never get another one. It's the kiss of death.
Thanks to this goal by Mike Embach
And a series of saves like this from Max Strang.
These are things that were not happening a month ago.
Practice ended today, and I'd guess 95 percent of the guys stayed on the ice an extra 30 minutes to play a game of Juice Boy, which is really a chance for Max Strang to get more shots. They were whooping and hollaring and laughing the whole time.
Then they go into the locker room and they're all sitting in their stalls continuing the ``discussion,'' teasing Schrocky about his black eye and getting on Embach about something. They must have been in there for 45 minutes before everybody got to the showers.
Talks about the altercation Saturday night and how the Komets responded.
Here's what Ben Meisner said about the situation: ``I don't really hold any grudges, that's for sure. It's just part of hte game. Was that guy saying, I'm going to injure this goalie? No. He's not a dirty player at all. I don't hold anything against him.''
Because he shot the puck in the stands.
Which is also how many hits Kalamazoo's Chris Lawrence has faced.
A couple of good saves. First, Ben Meisner
Then Jordan Binnington
The Komets asked for an ECHL review and Chris Lawrence has been fined and not suspended for hitting Komets goaltender Ben Meisner. Meisner is able to play today.
Also, Jace Coyle has been called up to Lake Erie of the AHL.
``I didn't have a great view of it. He went and was playing a puck in an awkward situation behind the net. The Kalamazoo player (Chris Lawrence) cross checks him in the back of the shoulder blades, and he went down. I don't know what is wrong with him. He has some sensations and some weird feelings going on, and the doctors here wanted to play it safe. We won't know more until tomorrow.''
