tj

is that why it is not on the radio??

tj

found it on espn radio....paper was wrong. sorry

Hoss

Nice job at the break Justin!

St.Christopher

Cohny...where are you skating tomorrow afternoon? Case of beer says my man Bertram gets a goal tonite.

Justin Cohn

I have a private lesson. You're not invited. However, I have a group of guys who are playing on Tuesday afternoons that I'm going to be hooking up with in two weeks if you're interested. email me jcohn@jg.net.

Hoss

Anything going on between Henley and the little guy tonight?

ToeBlake

No Hoss nothing with Willis and Henley but Legualt and Nebus fought in a crappy scrap. Justin How many can you have on play off roster?

Justin Cohn

If David Franke is correct, you can have 19, including your amateurs, on the active roster.

Justin Cohn

By the way, St. Chrisopher, you realize that case of beer will be Corona Light, right?

Justin Cohn

Or Shlitz.


By the way, I will be on with Bob during the second intermission. Wow, on with both team's broadcasters in the same night. I'm multi-media Justin.

Sherry

Chase says the goalies are practically standing on their heads. Truly impressive?

St.Christopher

I'll take Pabst Blue Ribbon in bottles, can find them at any CVS that sells alcohol

ToeBlake

So if that is the case will they have to release some guys or can they be put on the IR just like regular season?

Justin Cohn

IR will still exist. I'm sure they'll end up there. ... The goaltending's OK, nothing like last weekend.

Justin Cohn

Whew! This has been stressful with the internet. You forget how spoiled we are with ethernet and wireless. When you lose it, your world comes crumbling down.

Jerad Shaw

Big win here. I bet my boy Conley is getting a bit wild!!! Always enjoyable with him up there!!!

ToeBlake

Justin do you think the K's are playing their best hockey here over the last couple weeks? I know they clinch and are awaiting the playoff's but at times they look like they just are existing on the ice. KZoo is playing desparate hockey, play-off style and we have been struggling to put teams like Kzoo away...

Jerad Shaw

KZOO is playing desprate Playoff style hockey and we win in a shootout and are tied right now. I'm happy with that as we have already clinched what we need to clinch. These guys need to play in some close games to get that fire back in their bellies that they won't feel until the playoffs.
I do understand what you are saying though. It's 1/2 one way, another 1/2 the other.

Justin Cohn

No, this hasn't been anywhere near their best in the last 2 2/3 games. But they are missing arguably their top two players. And they keep winning. ...

St.Christopher

Seriously Cohny...light beer?

Jerad Shaw

How's the green ice look Justin??? I had 2 green Miller Lite's at dinner and prefer the normal. Same way when looking at the ice?

ToeBlake

The last couple of years we have great regular season only to get out played and out physicaled in the play-off's because we were unable to play desprate hockey..Just think we have not seen that type of play here of the last couple of weeks. Yes having Chaulk out of the line-up hurts but his play has been the most consistant in my IMO

Jerad Shaw

Last year's team didn't play physical much at all. They were a very very finese team. This year is alot different. The pieces have fit together like a puzzle. We have scorers and defenseman that fit well together. We also have the most toughness out of any team in the IHL. The Franke's in my opinion did one of their best jobs putting this team together.

Justin Cohn

Yeah, I'm on a diet. Actually, I drink the real stuff. Goose, baby. ... The green ice looks great. Nicer hue than the other years I've seen. The one problem is they messed up the pain on the goal crease that Boucher is defending now. They colored outside the lines, if you will.

Jerad Shaw

That will be a reason for protest!!!!

Sherry

Will you be putting a photo of the green ice on your blog (like last year?)

Shawn

I hope the Franke's are keeping Chaulk away from the team until he is better. I would rather him miss three games than spread his illness.

Justin Cohn

Unfortunately, we are no longer allowed to take pictures with our company cell phones, so, no. We should have photos in the newspaper tomorrow, though.

Jerad Shaw

Sounds like that one goal was on Henley. Yikes

ToeBlake

Yup Henley fell down resulting in a goal.

Jerad Shaw

What a game in Kalamazoo!!!

New Komet Fan

What a pass from Drouin. Ties it up at 4

Jerad Shaw

Chaser, not happy with Durdin's pass selection!!!!

Sherry

If photos make the paper, they should make the website so I guess those of us who had to work tonight can see the green ice then. Sounds like a great game!

Jerad Shaw

Komets going to be shorthanded for a minute in regulation and 1 minute in OT

Jerad Shaw

Man Chaser is ALLL OVER DURDIN

Jerad Shaw

Pre injury

Jerad Shaw

OVERTIME!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark

Overtime in Kzoo...free hockey

Jerad Shaw

FYI Sherry, they said Chaulk isn't on the trip, so I think they have quarentined him!! :)

Mark

Komets looked very timid in Overtime...

its shootout time..

tj

no SOG in OT?? wow...sounded like they were missin the net.

Jerad Shaw

Shootout. Wish I would have b2'd this one!!!

Mark

Kwings win...Komets shooters were horrible tonight

Jerad Shaw

And there ya have it!!! Prepare for the KZOO bombardment on the board!!!

ToeBlake

I have been telling you for the last few days the K's are not playing very good hockey at this point. No way should a team such as Kzoo be even able to skate with the K's and have tied them in two games in a row. We allow 30+ shots tonight. At this time of year you should be playing your best hockey and I afraid we are not at this point..Great effort to tie it up but should never been in the situation tonight...

Jungle Monkey

Aquino has stunk in shootouts. Huck and Saidachev need chances in the shootout. Can't blame Sims for going with PC or Shaf though.

Mark

Absolutely not JM, but all these guys did was skate down and shoot the puck. No deke or anything, almost like they didn't care if they scored or not..I'm not thats what happened, but it looked like it. Komets were very timid in OT period to, almost like they are afraid to make a play. I mean Marchant had a 2 on 1 break and waited way to look to do anything with the puck...

Mark

oops that should be saying in there...

Mark

Toeblake-

Curudeau being out is why they are playing like they are it seems like. Curadeau is a HUGE part of this team. His intensity and hitting get the team jumpstarted, not to mention his playing making ability.
