Justin any word on the Brawl last night in Port Huron. Snowball was suspended 5 games but I do not think anyone from Flint got suspend or did they?

Justin Cohn

No suspensions that I've heard of. Flint's scratches are Jared Dumba, Mike Kinnie, Brett Westgarth and Chad Alban. ... I haven't heard on Mallette yet, but I think he's hurt.

deuce

oh no.....Jim Hawthorne is in the building!

Justin Cohn

That's right. Get ready for some penalties. Lots of 'em.

Jerad Shaw

Who is in net for Flint?

deuce

olynyk is suspended too

deuce

hopefully you have some amp energy drink justin

Jerad Shaw

Should have stayed home and watched the Kimbo Slice vs. Tank Abbott fight!!!

deuce

oh good, the wife's watching some girl flick, guess i'm b2ing it tonight!

Brandon

Justin, Go take out Kocur's knee

Brandon

Mallette is scratched

topshelf

3 hour drive to watch Hawthorn ref.........wish I would have known he was going to be here and I would have stayed home.

Justin Cohn

Spezza in net. ... Of course, the real question is: WHere's Kory Kocur?

Justin Cohn

By the way, and bearing in mind that I've covered two Super Bowls and been to Stanley Cup Finals, etc.: That was easily the longest rendition of the national anthem I've ever heard. Good. But, whoa, it was long.

Justin Cohn

Hey topshelf, you on a Treo or what?

deuce

GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL

Jerad Shaw

I bit the bullet and let the girl take me to see P.S. I Love You about 3 weeks ago. Since then I had gotten to see the new Rambo and control the remote. It was awful while watching it, but has paid off. The Kimbo Tank fight is on Showtime. I would prefer the Pavlik vs. Mayweather fight!!!

Justin Cohn

Kimo Slice. I'm surprised no one has tried to put him in skates yet. Alongside Brendan Tedstone.

Jerad Shaw

HAHA.... Tedstone vs. Kimbo on skates. It wouldn't sell very well, but would be comic relief. I give the edge to Kimbo. :)

topshelf

yes Justin.........section 5

New Komet Fan

Noticed Flint signed that kid from Indiana, PA from the MAHL who was a scoring machine. Justin how does he look?

Justin Cohn

To be honest, he either hasn't been on the ice yet or I haven't noticed him yet.

topshelf

is that you sitting next to Savage Justin? don't rub his back

Justin Cohn

OK, now I see him. Doesn't look out of place; that's about all I can say about that shift. ... Warner left the ice hurt, after he got checked. Maybe just woozy; hard to tell.

Jerad Shaw

Shaf has really figured out this league since your article Justin!!!

Mark

Who was the Komet player who got helped off the Ice...

Mark

ok disregard my question...should of just kept reading...

Justin Cohn

Nope. I'm the one next to Chaser, stuffing his face with popcorn, wearing a beautiful touk.

Jerad Shaw

Looks like you are working overtime with all the bloggers Justin!!! I'm sure I speak for all of us and say thank you for your work!

Justin Cohn

Jerad, just one more instance of my good-luck charms. Well, except for Saidachev blowing out his knee.

deuce

Who's this Shaw person? I thought he quit us. lol

Jerad Shaw

Haha. Well that is work at -2, but you are still working with a + 9 for the year, so you are doing you're still doing a great job!!!

Justin Cohn

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, I just got divebombed by a bat.

deuce

that's what bozo said too on the b2

Brandon

Well, on the plus side you won't have to worry about any bugs

Justin Cohn

I'm sure if I look really hard, I can find some rodents. ... By the way, the state of this place is still a wreck. The parking lot was covered with snow and ice; nice to roll out the welcome mat for the fans. And, I guess because of a truck show or something, the buidling was covered in dust. That's a little more understandable. But the parking lot was a hazard. They do that at Wings Stadium now, too, lawsuits waiting to happen.

Brandon

Atleast it's free to park in K-Zoo....I believe it's $4 in Flint

Jerad Shaw

Do you mean you got dived by an Austin ICE bat???

New Komet Fan

Hmm, Jerad's back..... I guess you were just blowin hot air when you said you were done with Ice Chips.

Jerad Shaw

Sorry, hashing up old articles!!!! GOAAAL Flint! on a Woods Delay I believe!

Justin Cohn

The jinx of the night: Depretis assists on Flint's game-tying PP goal.

topshelf

not fair!! Flint has the Beat the !$@# out of you song.

Jerad Shaw

Not going to butcher this blog with reasoning. The last blog has my reasoning. As weak as it is, it is my reasoning.

deuce

2-1 k's atta boy Matty

Jerad Shaw

GOOOOOALLLLL !!!!!!!!!!!!11111

Brandon

In the Bloomington/Muskegon game, Old Man Parsons already has a natural hat trick and they had 2 fights in the 1st 1:07

Justin Cohn

Muskegon kind of stinks, eh?

Jerad Shaw

End of 1!!!!


Justin, Do you realize you are missing out on the NBA All-Star Skills Competition and Slam Dunk Competition?

deuce

from the score sheet it looks like musky is killing themselves

Justin Cohn

I did realize that. I heard Dwight Howard wanted to use a taller-than-usual basket? I'm assuming they didn't let them. ... My interest in the dunk contest kind of ended when Dominique left the building. Or Spud Webb. Whoa, did I ever love him.
