this is really frustrating to watch...

Jungle Monkey

GOON IT UP AL!!! Send Henley, Bert, and Woodsy on a line together. Raise a little hell. At least let em' know you were there.

Hoss

All you can say is LETS GO KOMETS!

Heather

I don't want to see PH win on our ice.

Heather

Komets won 5-1 Sunday night. Coincidence that PH is winning 5-1 now?

komets123

Komets have shown no heart.. Hate to say it, but this plain and simple is NOT the team we watched all season long.

Top of the roster to the bottom should be ashamed of this.

Haley

It kinda makes me sick to my stomach. They can still win this all, they just need to find a way to win in PH

Shelly

a lot can happen in 20 minutes...

IcyKometsFan84

god i wish they would quit playing that crapy irish music

Heather

In this world there are 2 kinds of people. You are either glass half full or glass half empty. No way to change it just the way it is.

Haley

Do you think they will take Reiter out?

aHomco

excuse me while I steal a line...

Hit Somebody!!!!!!!

harley

time for the pumpers NOW!!!

Haley

guess not

IcyKometsFan84

man did anyone else hear superfans laugh.....haha

St. Chris

Last I checked it's best of 7 series...still getting my moneys worth!

Jungle Monkey

Leave him in and let him lay in the grave he's dug us. Keep Boucher fresh for tomorrow.

Heather

I was watching Sundays game and I love how Larry said "in case you didn't hear me...KOMETS WIN KOMETS WIN" lol way to go larry.

Rob

I'd say you've got nothing to lose in this game by coming out with Boucher in the 3rd. Sounds like that 2nd goal by Zehr was typical of Reiter coming too far out of the net. Granted, I didn't actually see it, but I have a huch based on how I've seen it described and Reiter's history of coming too far out before.

Danno

The rink has something to do with it? Give me a break, they've played there how many times this year?

Suddenly the rink changed between the regular season and the Finals?

55kometfan

All we have to do is score a goal every 4 minutes and get this to OT

Justin Cohn

If you read my story today, they had great goaltending in the regular season. That's why they won here.

Heather

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?

Heather

We had better goaltending. Stats prove that. Where is Mr. BEST GOALTENDER IN THE LEAGUE?

Jungle Monkey

Exactly Cohn. And tonight we don't have goaltending. End of story.

Keith

If nothing else the previous posts about this finals being good business to get fans in PH in the seats hopefully pays off to help create another stable fanchise. If the K's can get their act together and win the next three PH will be crushed, but this run should help build their fan base.

Danno

So, rather than blaming the defense or goal tending you say the rink has something to do with it?

Poor excuse if you ask me.

IcyKometsFan84

cohn if you had to choose would you say that this is goaltending problem or a defense problem

JW

lets get LOUD tomorrow night. RnR pt.2 lets blow the roof off with it...if theres any time when its acceptable for YOU SUCK its a hockey finals, especially when down 3-1 even if your one of the straight laced folks that has a hard time accepting such a phrase

we cant let them celebrate on our ice

harley

Sterling just robbed FTW of any chance of getting back in this game!!
WOW!!!!

Heather

If we win we win if we lose we lose people aren't gonna start riots because the komets lost. People will go back to their daily activities. Hockey will still be strong in Fort Wayne next season. We never have to worry about not having a team. So just go out and have fun with it. If we can win tomorrow then that's great but if we lose it won't be the worst possible thing in the world. Win or lose I will still be a Komet fan.

bertramfan22

This could get ugly towards the end of the game!!

Jungle Monkey

Okay.... we're down 5-1. Can't change that now.. But we're playing like a bunch of women.. C'mon!!!!! Kick it in.

IcyKometsFan84

pretty sure they will lose on purpose they will want the money from the people in port huron on saturday what do they have to lose they are up 3-1 or will be

homco

so does b2 refund money if one of the teams doesnt show up?

Heather

Yankees are losing too its a conspiracy!!!!!!

Haley

Jungle Monkey,
Don't know if I should laugh or be offended!

:)

Keith

I think today's game is more about costly turnovers rather than defense or goaltending. Not much defense or goaltending can do when you are turning the puck over that is creating all of these odd men rushed. Chase just summed it up...no one with a K's jersey is using their strenghts that brought them to this point - the heads.

janice

yeah the Cubs got shelled today to...so its huge conspiracy...lol

Go Komets!!!

Jungle Monkey

KometCast sounds horrible too. What a crap night!

Keith

you can also point at the coaching...how can you keep the team going strong for a late season winning streak at home when you are leading the league by so many points but you can't figure a way to consistantly get your team around PH. you can keep the guys focused on a meaningless streak but can't keep them thinking straight to not create these costly turnovers

harley

Wonder if PH will leave after the game?

Keith

there are alot of fingers to point at all parts of the game so I don't think you can pin this on one aspect of game or one or two players. this is a meltdown that will be remembered for a long time. And if the K's can bring this series back to a game 7 it would also be the biggest turn around in IHL history.

harley

At least the St. Louis Cardinals are winning tonight!!!!

Chad17

does anyone else think that legault should be playing instead of durdin or pence?

Heather

See you all tomorrow night. Lets hope they show up tomorrow to play. Lets win this next one.

Keith

legault is a winger, not defense so it would not make sense to exchange him for one of those people.

Jungle Monkey

No. Legault wouldn't do any good in place of either of those guys. And I'd love for Legault to be on the bench to send a message tonight.

IcyKometsFan84

yes i would get rid of both and just put legault in

aHomco

Yes, I dislike Durdin greatly. Legault should be out there.
