KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- My eyes must be deceiving me. The Komets' league-worst power-play unit has three goals over two games? Wow.
P.C. Drouin netted the second power-play goal of the night, from the point, giving the Komets a 3-1 lead over the Kalamazoo Wings in the second period.
Bobby Kukulka left the game after he was high-sticked by Nathan Oke, but that's what set up the power play and Drouin's goal. Still no word on Kukulka.
It looks as if coach Al Sims' threatening of jobs is paying off because this has been one of the Komets' best games of the season, so far anyway.
Still I wonder, where has the hitting gone?
By the way, Nick Boucher looks solid in net for the Komets. He gave up a long-range shot to Kory Karlander, but it seems like the Komets truly do have two No. 1 goalies.
