MUSKEGON, Mich. -- Greetings from L.C. Walker Arena. And thanks to the Fury organization for putting up a makeshift press box for the visiting media. Nice to not be hitting my head on girders.
Remember before the playoffs, when I waxed poetically about how a goaltender rotation might not be such a smart idea, especially if Kevin Reiter played well in Game 1? Well, call me a prognosticator because Reiter had a shutout in Game 1 and word is Nick Boucher will go in Game 2 tonight.
I get it. I really do. Alternating has worked all season long. But this is playoff hockey. You don't mess with a winning streak. If the Komets lay an egg tonight, coach Al Sims will have to kick himself for making the move.
All that being said, Boucher is solid. I have no reason to think, if he does indeed play, that he won't be excellent.
