Andy

so are they looking better tonight then they did last night or is the hawk d still giving us problems?

Justin Cohn

Both. They look better but the Icehawks look good, too. Great goaltending at both ends tonight, particularly at the Icehawks' end.

Hoss

Justin, can you please go over and slap the PH radio guy?!!!? He is saying "The Komets knock the net off again in the middle of a scoring chance, like they will do at least 100 times in the round." What a bunch of BS!!!

Komets look much better tonight! I wish they would crash the net a little more, but we are holding our own.

Sidney Crosby

we're still not getting enough traffic in front of Sterling but we look a ton better than last night!

Mark

yeah...I don't know if the Icehawks defense is as good as it was last night, Komets are just that much better tonight.

both teams had great chances and the goalies came up big....

Teresa

The boys are looking much better than last night. Reiter is looking strong too. Too bad PC missed that one he should have had. Where has Woodsy been all night? I think he's only played one shift. I'm B2ing it and listening to Chaser on the side.

I'm watching on B2. The radio announcer that is also doing the audio for B2 is getting on my nerves!

He has yet to say anything nice about a Komet player. Apparently Woods sucker punches people, Kevin fakes getting hit and any time an apposing team gets close to the net he bumbs it of the moorings.

In fact, according to their announcer, Komets have done that hundreds of times this season and never get called for it.

Sterling has made what looked like a couple of great saves, they've got to solve him.

Hey Justin, how about giving him a bit of a bump??!

Do you guys really think they look that much better than last night? Or is it just because we haven't given up 2 goals? I think we still look very very sloppy. Need more GOOD scoring opportunities like Drouin missing that point blank shot. Thought he had it but Sterling made an awesome save. Did you guys see Margettie sucker punch Henley and Henley did nothing? 2006-2007 Henley would have went nuts on him. 2007-2008 Henley just accepts it from that punk. Ticks me off.

Justin Cohn

Not everyone can be as objective as yours truly. So many people here, Ben couldn't even get through the line to get a soda. Good news for McMorran. Bad news for him.

Teresa

Their camera does not pick up the crowd very well. I'm not seeing or hearing much of KometNation on the B2. Hopefully they are cheering loud for our boys. Go K's!!!

Hoss

Yes, they look much better. They have had two good scoring chances, which is two more than last night and they are connecting on their passes, which is more than we can say for last night's game.

Is B2 working Ok 2night? I had troubles with it when they played in Musky. Paid for it and missed most of the 1st period both times.

Guess it is to late to get it tonight.

Teresa

B2 seems to be working fine.

Sidney Crosby

I had trouble with B2 in Musky too, but tonight it's fine. I think you can still get on.

Heather

Mark

No, I'm watching on the B2

Hoss

jc, DID YOU GIVE HIM THAT LITTLE SLAP FOR US YET?

Mark

Justin Cohn

Actually, I did say his listeners were a little tired of him whining. He then whined even more about how unruly and dirty and unsportsmanlike the Komets are. Maybe they are. Maybe not. But the Icehawks are pretty cheap, too.
