Steve Larmer, Tim Kerr, Espo...that's where they earned their keep, bub.

Justin Cohn

Steve Larmer was probably the only acceptable Blackhawk of all time. I mean while he still played for them.

Jerad Shaw

I will be in the 8th row tonight for the Bhawks game!!! I get to watch the 8th seed team in the playoffs. The team that will end the Red Wings Season!

Junior

Larmer was one of my all-time favorite Hawk!

Junior

Larmer was one of my all-time favorite Hawk!

GO 8th SEED!!!!!!!!

brando

I'm confused...whos the 8th seed?

Junior

I meant to say, future 8th seed.

chuckitt

blackhawks still have a team?

mightbite

The Blackhawks best player of all-time=Bob Probert!!!

brando

Are you a hockey fan mightbite?

JW

hahahaha i dont think he is...just obsessed with the fighting aspect of the game.

mightbite try UFC, you may like it much more than hockey. i would steer clear of boxing though, that sport is dead and you will only get to see decisions nowadays

brando

I didnt think so either, only thing he/she cares about on here is abeatenhorse and fighting.

Junior

Come ON CHUCK!!!

4 points out of the last spot in the west.

No love for the forgotten franchise.

mightbite

NO I LOVE GOONERY !!!!

Mrs. Mightbite

Mrs. Mightbite here ...

yes, UFC is the best, and he's good at that BEFORE it was called the UFC;
yes, he's a hockey fan and will put his professional experience against yours;
and I think we have a kick @!@ hockey team and I challenge the fans to step up and be as kick !@!

Andrew

Nice story but got a question. I noticed the pic of Durdin pushing the guy out front and saw Boucher's stick (or at least that looks like his #). His stick says www.mylooneypets.com ? You know anything about that JC? I know that Quad City awhile back had some plumming company sponsor their sticks. Kinda odd...

Bill

That stick is Reiter's. After the game the other day I asked about it and he said it was his sister's company.

Andrew

Yeah i didn't know who it was...the first number was a 3 and the second was blocked. Nice free adversting for her though. Thanks Bill

Komets Win! Komets Win! Komets Win!

Justin Cohn

I hadn't noticed. I will have to check that out!

mightbite

Wow- 2 fights in first period + real rough start in Boston vs. Washington.

Brando

Your mom (Mrs. Mightbite) watching the Boston game with ya?

mightbite

NO - I sure wish she could-God bless her- just me & my dog.

Brando

Is that Mrs. Mightbite?

Junior

There should be 2 good fights tonight.

Leguat and Snowball

Woods and Margettie

mightbite

And don't forget HENLEY returns tonight!!!

Junior

He's not coming back until the K-zoo game on the 14th??

mightbite

I thought its been 5 games? A nasty knee by Matt Cooke 5 min.

Ryne Gurney

I think it's been 5 games too, Cohn can you verify?

Ryne Gurney

Also, is Margettie playing, last I heard he had been out since Woods Rearranged is face.

Hoss

Yes, Helney will be playing tonight. (Don't forget to count the make-up game in the five games) I was hoping he would be out and his jersey would be cheaper, but no dice! Oh Well, I'll have to settle to watch him play tonight... Looks like I'm going after Pence's jersey tonight!!! (Cheapest of all of them I'm guessing)

Andrew

Magrettie played Sunday against Muskegon so I would assume he's going to play. He fought in that game too, which would lead me to believe he's 100%

K.M.

Just an FYI for everyone, I have seen people saying on other boards that over 9000 tickets had been sold as of this morning.

Junior

Well, hope Henley's rested and ready to play!!

jkmess11

Okay, someone who is listening to the game, please recap on the discussion of Bob Chase and the expansion of the league. I missed most of it, but I heard most likely expansion in Chicago and Indy. AHL going to Toledo and that is it. Please fill me in!

Henley67250

When are we clinching a playoff spot? 30 point margin between 1st and 4th, it should be any game now right???

JW

after looking at the box scores for every ihl game it seems like one of the chippiest all around nights in a while

New Komet Fan

Tonights game started out great. Alot of speed and action but I think it got a little sloppy. Nice to see the Komets win with a little less than their A game. Keep it going! Thanks to the refs for disposing of Durdin for us tonight.

David

Nice Home Win, but we played very sloppy or Port Huron is a lot better club. Margettie took care of Hansen tonight. Woods could have taken care of Margettie on the opening face off but opt out.

TGP

The game vs. Bloomington last weekend was much chippier than this one. So I disagree that this was the most chippy game as of late.

This game was not that sloppy, I didn't think though my judgement may not be as reliable with all the people getting up and down all night long.

Good pace, PH didn't quit like the last time they were in town, and another great game by the Komets despite the hideous uniforms...but all for a good cause. But a good cause should not always mean that the hockey team has to wear uglies. The horrific practice jersies are enough already.

Aquino, Drouin, Boucher, Chaulk, and Curadeau are just a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

What impressed me the most was the Komets WERE STILL working up until the very end despite a three goal lead. Unless a rash of injuries happen, there is another banner ready to be hung. This Komet team right now looks great.

Teresa

Where do you sit TGP? I had a couple sitting beside me last night that I was ready to chain to their seats! Obviously they have no hockey etiquette at all. All I can say is I hope they never sit there again. I may as well have stood up all night as many times as they got up and down. Why don't people like that get seats on the end????

FiveMinuteMajor

Sometimes the people on the ends don't get it either. I had a woman sitting by me last night who wouldn't move for anything. I had to get out of my seat twice (both during intermissions even) and she wouldn't even so much as move her feet back! Just sat there and glared. I'm small, I don't need a lot of room to get by you, just move your feet! I might have accidently applied my shoe to her instep one time as I was trying to crawl over her. ;)

chuckitt

i sit on the end, what kind of crappy reference was that? idiots and non hockey knowledgeable people can sit anywhere. i sit on the end cause i dont have any obstructed view and i get to see the plays develop.

chuckitt

if you meant why dont people like that get seats on the aisle then that is understandable. but i pay the same money for the end as you priviledged people at center ice do.we had a guy last night who sat in the middle of the section and got up eight times during the game.
