Sorry for my tardiness. As you can imagine, this has been quite hectic.
The Komets and Port Huron Icehawks are going to overtime No. 3 in Game 7 of the Turner Cup Finals. We can safely say, now, that this is the greatest game in the history of Komets hockey.
And that's a lot of history -- 56 seasons worth.
I can't believe this game is still going, not just because the Komets coughed up a 2-1 lead with less than a minute remaining in regulation, thanks to a Tab Lardner shot that ricocheted off of -- count 'em -- two Fort Wayne skates before going in. No, the shock is because the Komets have been foiled by goalie Larry Sterling on about six sterling scoring chances, and they've hit a couple of posts.
Port Huron has had some good chances, too, and the officiating going its way.
Heck with it, let's go all night.
