MUSKEGON, Mich. -- A woman in section 109 at L.C. Walker Arena, at the public address announcer's behest, just did the "Macarena." Why someone would put them through that sort of public humiliation I'll never understand.
But it wasn't slightly as gruesome as the nosedive the Komets took just afterward. They gave up goals on back-to-back shots, to Shea Hamilton and Mark Cadotte, and the Fury leads 2-1.
Early on, it was a game of special teams. Muskegon had the first three power plays, in the first seven minutes, and failed to score on any. Then the Komets got a 2:00 5-on-3 advantage and on the first shot, Pierre-Claude Drouin scored from the point. And just days ago, coach Al Sims was saying he needed to pass more. Shucks no.
Anyway, the Komets' defense got shoddy late in the period, hence the deficit.
