Yeah Cohn. I guess we both have the ol reverse psych stuff gong on but I have to say that the barber shop prediction at 3:49 PM today of a 4 2 Komets victory was spot on. I still was not totally thrilled with the effort. Maybe one day off is better than 3. Keep it up and I will too. From one predictor to another. Peace. And Conley out!

Mark

Good game, Komets played tentative, but Sterling looked nervous as heck,

Should be a barn burner in PH on Saturday..

GO KOMETS GO

Bring this back to Fort Wayne

I want that game 7 on my anniversary

Shawn

The Komets did what they had to do in order to keep this series going. It was not great hockey, but it was winning hockey.

Justin Cohn

Here's the home of TigerDan. He won't be too happy when we sick the lawyers on them for unauthorized use of copyrighted material. But I digress.

But Justin isn't it the Icehawks, not the Flags? Maybe they should change message board names along with all of the last 3 million team names!

Justin Cohn

Yeah, the BorderCatBeaconFlagIcehawks.

RaVeN

Does anyone know if Huckalo is hurt badly? I didn't see him take another shift after that third period hit.

deuce

Uh Justin, you forgot to put .com at the end of that! lol

kometfan737

Oh man, my throat is ripped to shreds from cheering so much/so loudly for our guys tonight! I was even chewed out by some old lady (a supposed Komet’s fan) for cheering too much. What up with that? I think the guys tend to play a lot better when the fans get loud and are behind them cheering them on.

Also, I think that I made Hodgman's day when I showed him/gave him the player photo button that I designed and put together for him (since they don't have one out for him yet). He was so appreciative and really excited that someone would go out of their way to do that for him. He’s really a great guy!

Anyway, great job tonight to the Komets!! We will see you back here on Monday to win that cup on home ice!!

Also, if there is still a bus trip planned on Sat. I'd like to get 2 seats please. Please email me at mike_737@yahoo.com There may be a Hodgman photo button in it for you, lol.

deuce

oh, we're resorting to bribery are we???? lol

Joe Fan

Hey...someone should contact Buckets or some place like that and get the B2 feed like the PH fans did for game 5. It would be fun to gather with a bunch of you and watch the game together.

Justin...do you have any connections to get this ball rolling?

FWKRTJ

Yes, we have at least 5 people (possibly more) who would like to go on a bus trip (save us from driving up). My email is tpclark@bsu.edu

Wendy

Good game tonight. Sure, there were mistakes made, and it is getting almost comical with the way we keep making goals that don't count. But all in all, both sides were making an effort out there and kept it interesting right up to the end.

Now wouldn't it be nice if the Komets play the way we all know they can on Saturday?

And I have to agree with Al's advice there. Just keep that defense solid. All we need is one goal if it's one more than what the IceHawks have.

deuce

Can I get an Amen Sister!!!!

daisy

Hey, if anybody gets bus info or wants to carpool let me know. There's only two of us going so far.

Thanks

Would also be interested if there is a bus Saturday.

Well I got what I wanted which is a game 6 but to bad for you Komets fans this Turner Cup playoff is coming to a end on Saturday night. GO ICEHAWKS GO! See you at the tailgate party.

Jungle Monkey

Listen Butters, you're a fool for wanting a game 6. If the Komets come up there and bury the Beacons you might as well forget about game 7. Your Flags didn't look all that good last night. Sterling is cracking under the pressure.

GO Komets!

Jungle Monkey

Is B2 copright protected? Meaning, can you show it in a public venue such as a resturant, bar,....etc?

Conley

IMO if you buy B2 you should be able to show it wherever you like, as long as you don't charge a fee to view it, no copyright laws are broken. Just my thoughts. I'm going to ask a bar/pizza joint if I can rent a party room here in Warcity. I have the laptop and a projector and a blank wall. Game on!

Icehawk_Butter

So what you’re saying is that the Icehawks looked bad in last night game-5. Well if that is true I wouldn’t be bragging about your teams performs. In a must win game you only win 4-2 final score, but in actuality is was a 3-2 hockey game you scored a late empty net goal. Last night the Komets had to give their best performances of the series to play another day. I don’t see the Komets winning three in a row or even putting together three games effort. The Komets have played without passion for too many games in this series. Game 6 is in our barn in Port Huron with our fans and our noise. This is what big game players and teams play for. I know our team will come out with passion and effort. The question is will your? GO HAWKS GO! GO HAWKS GO!

Hoss

Butter, it will be in your barn, but we will bring plenty of OUR FANS WITH OUR NOISE!!! The Jungle is getting moved a little north this weekend! We will be loud and we will be proud!

We don't need to win three in a row, we need to win one game. One game at a time, one peirod at a time, one shift at a time!!! GO KOMETS!!!!

IcyKometsFan84

Hey Cohn any idea when new photos will be up on Komets Korner that were taken from lastnight game?

topshelf

Last year I tried to get the owner of Buckets to show the B@ feed on one or big screens and he never even gave me a call back. My son's baseball games dont get over till around 4PM Saturday so I have no chance of making the trip to see the K's take one on the road. My B-day is Monday and would that not be awesome to see the K's win the KUP on Monday in game 7!!! I'll be watching from home on my big screen unless someone can talk a bar into showing the game. GO KOMETS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Justin Cohn

Not sure on the photos. I have people checking. Keep checking back there. Probably an unfortunate oversight.

Teresa

I'm definitely interested in a bus trip. Please e-mail me at beckt@repsrv.com or call 478-0396 today. Thanks!

gman

Come on Komets one more on Saturday. I read the POHO times and they are already planning the parade. Let's put an end to this thing. Butter, I was at the game last night you were not. The Komets controlled the majority of the game with the cheap goals at the end. The score was closer then it really was. If the Komets play the same defense on Saturday the Flags err hawks are in trouble. Please shut up about passion, check out what happen to your team in the regualar season. Is your owner going to take another loss and offer 5 dollar tickets in order to get fans to come to the game this time?

Rich

Conley
I also have a laptop that we can hook to a TV via an s-video cable; we can also get sound through the Audio ports on the TV. Let me know what you find out. We can split the cost if we have to rent the room. I think I can have at least 4 people there.

I will definately make something happen if I can get a hold of Pat. The owner. He owes me one so I will keep you updated. You do have the cables we need? They have those big screens at the lake at location. Stay tuned. Go Komets!

hockeyislife.

okay. i have faith in these boys. they can do it. i know they can they just have to stay positive. anddd if we come back for game 7 we have to start saying STERRRRLINGGG again. because that is so halarious! lol
GO KOMETS!

Tera

I just got off the phone with the Holiday Inn Express, and they are doing the "stay n play" package again, and their person was at the arena waiting in a line that is around the block to get the tickets included for the packages!! So, if you are going to get tickets call now!!! Just don't take the ones the Holiday Inn is trying to get for us! lol

GO KOMETS!!

Burgee

Sterling's a Nut Case, ya'll got in his head again, he wanted to go with Bouch. LARRRRRRRY... You get under his skin and the game is over, LARRRRRY goes nutso.

Poured Urine Whines more than any team i have seen in our leagues including Martinson's teams.

Here Kitty Kitty.

Conley

Yeah. I saw Larry give the throat slice with his stick toward Bouche. Does that mean he wants to kill him? That's not very nice.

Janice

I just got 9 tickets for Saturday..The icehawks and McMorran Arena are overwhelmed with tickets sales today. If I were you..call and get tickets soon. I have no doubt it may be sold out by the end of today. ..Lets got a sea of orange in there and get the boys pumped.

Lets Go Komets..

daisy

So I called about a bus... they want $2,100 for a 56 passenger, which is $37.50 each. I think it would be cheaper to carpool. There's two of us going and I have a very roomy car. Three adults could fit comfortably in the backseat. If anybody wants to carpool my email is daithy@gmail.com

TigerDan

Good luck sueing YouTube, Justin. I hope you have good lawyers.

TigerDan

Wow, every time you guys win a game, the majority of you go back to the same ignorant, cocky fans that we've come to know.

Why don't you try chanting the goalies' name on an EMPTY NET goal again. That was hilarious --- it's kind of like throwing a bag of rubber bands into the monkey cage with you people, isn't it? You're always amusing, I'll give you that.

See you Saturday.

GO HAWKS GO!!!!!

FiveMinuteMajor

Can someone tell me the name of the song they have been playing during warmups/pregame- it has a line in it "we're just getting started"? I'd look it up myself but I'm at work right now and I'm lucky the net nanny lets me get to this website let alone any other ones. That song's been running through my head all morning!

Teresa

FYI - No bus to be sponsored by Komet management for Saturday. Hey, at least they responded to my e-mail...

scoops

Don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch Tiger but every team has their fair share of ignorant followers. I'll give you an honest assessment of the game as I saw it.
We still don't have everyone clicking on the same page. Its almost as if we are fighting the play and trying to make a play individually.
The Port Huron PP looks very fluid and had some great chances last night. The Fort Wayne PP is not there and I give some credit to the IceHawks. The pressure on the puck (and points) has been incredible. Everything seems to get blocked, knocked down, or lanes are completely clogged.
I can't help it but to me some of the guys looked a step slow all night. More reacting to what just happened instead of anticipating what is going to happen.
Larry Sterling was not on his game and if chanting his name gets him off kilter then we'll do it. He is a good goalie, no question, but plays beneath his ability when his cage is rattled.
I can't help but love watching Justin Hodgeman play. Best player on the ice.

Even with some things not quite up to par...it was good enough to win last night and hopefully inspired some of the veteran leaders, which may be bad for the IceHawks. It was good to finally see some emotion out there. The Komets definately need to play better and together to force a game 7. We are definately due for a supreme effort on your barn. The advantage we have is the pressure isn't on us, its on Port Huron.

jonndfi

TigerDan (aka kitty kitty, putty tat, poured urine kitty)

Why is it difficult for you to discuss hockey instead of doing what you are doing? Is the air to thin up in pored urin or what? I guess when we win and become ignorant is better than you being ignorant 100% of the time! Got to go- just ran over an hawk. Hope that isn't an omen to Saturday's game!

Icehawk_Butter

I see you fans talk a good game. To bad your team can't back up what your saying. Wish all you want, hope all you want, but come Saturday night your team will play without a heart again and the Icehawks will win the game. Remember who is up in the series so far! GO HAWKS GO! GO HAWKS GO! PS Larry plays way better when he is pissed! SO PLEASE EGG HIM ON MORE AND MORE!

Hoss

There will be a HOSS sighting up in PH Saturday!!! Please Please Please TigerDane and Butter come intoduce yourselves to me(Big guy in a orange Komet's jersey with Hoss #96 on back). I would love to put a face to your name. Last night I walked in with the bus load from PH and they were all very nice people. I even met the wife of a PH player that played with Warner at MI St. Nice people and I was happy I was right when I told them "too bad your ride will be a long sad one on the way home." They laughed and said it wouldn't be sad no matter what. Which is true, even if (when) you guys lose the last two games, taking us to seven is a great season for you. No one would have said the Komets would take seven to win the finals, with such a big lead all year long.

Again, remember:

"One game at a time! One period at a time! One shift at a time!!!"

GO KOMETS!

The Song is just getting started by loverboy!

I think one of the funniest things I've seen here is Tiger boy talking about how PH had it all because it was close to Detroit. Okay, I've cleaned the Coke off my keyboard since I spit it out. Who wants to be close to Detroit? The Hawks board is a riot, they talk trash yet I really want to hear what is said tomorrow. Colin Chaulk said over the PA there would be a game 7. Get fired up Komet fans.

Icehawk_Butter

I'll be at the tailgate party doing what i did last weekend. "Wearing safety goggles and taking a firm hold of a sledgehammer, Icehawk Butter showed his support for the Icehawks through destruction". You can find me at the tailgate just like i was there last weekend. See at the game. GO HAWKS GO!

daisy

We have room for one more in our car. Splitting the cost of gas will only be about $16 per person. If interested let me know!
