Let the Turner Cup Finals begin! As I predicted, Nick Boucher will be in net for the Komets tonight. And the referee will be John Searle.
Lots of people in the press box. I haven't seen it this full in years. Commissioner Paul Pickard, vice-president Brad Jones and referee Bob Langdon, who is the backup referee in case something happens to Searle, are i nthe box. So is former Komets coach/player Robbie Laird, director of pro scouting with the Los Angeles Kings.
In case you missed it, here's today's story on Matt Reynolds, the Iron Chef of Fort Wayne hockey.
And, a bit belated, here's Ben Smith's story on the 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 format.
- Tonight's game will be replayed Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 8 a.m. on Comcast 55 and Verizon 25.
- On Sunday, there will be a presentation made to B.J. Lomow and his family in the amount of $6,500, raised in the charity game between the Fire Department and ex-Komets.
