Yea Lads prove marco wrong!!

First back to back losses this year.


The Komets played a good game. But, two shorty's broke the back. I have no idea what is up with Reiter but there is obviously something going on. Boucher is the starter as far as I am concerned as long as he is healthy. Maybe Reiter is happy being a backup? Again, it was a great game. Reiter has me wondering what's up.

Hit Somebody!!!

Wonder what explanation we might get for yanking Reiter with a 4-3 lead? Hope he isn't hurt. But it does seem odd to remove him when they did. The momentum swung to the Fury after that.

I'm pretty sure they yanked Reiter at the start of the 2nd when the score was 3-3, not after we had the lead again

Hit Somebody!!!

I think you are right. But still?


That's 2 games in a row Reiter was yanked early and Boucher was in. Has to make you wonder...


Maybe there is too much talent between the pipes?


Boucher was in to start the 2nd period


Bad thing is Boucher took the loss only giving up 2.

Reiter was playing shutout hockey for two weeks. Now he's letting in softies and stinking the joint up. Seems simple to me.

Hit Somebody!!!

"Why" is the question?

Trying to play goal looking over his shoulder?
Coming back down to Earth?

I think he is a great goalie and we have 2 great goalies this year. It is odd that when Nick is in the mix, Reiter struggles. Maybe it isn't so?


When Reiter's hot, he's hot...when he's cold...man is he cold.

I can't talk about the game right now. It was still alot of fun up here!!! Glad I came up this way!!!


I think that both Reiter and Boucher are great at their position. Both are starters in this league with out a doubt. I also think this is the problem though.


You ever wonder if Reiter and Boucher hang out? Anybody know?

Hit Somebody!!!

I could see if you are in net and things go sour during a game that you would start to press way too much knowing that the guy on the bench is suiting up and waiting for coach to pull the trigger. That is alot of pressure for most guys. That is why I thought that maybe pulling him during the intermission might only add pressure to him in the future. Reiter seems to play his best when he is relaxed and has the confidence that to do his job. It seems the pressure of the quick hook is killing him.


Hang out...meaning buddy's like on the bus home or when they are in town.


I saw Reiter and Boucher playing hopscotch, but that was earlier in the season...so I guess they hang out.


Again it was a great game, win or lose, by the K's. Thanks B2

Hit Somebody!!!

I know they dress the same during the games.


curdy just got released....is he comin back?
