Thanks go to Clint Keller of The Journal Gazette for some awesome photos from Friday's game. Click here to check them out. I especially like the ones of Nick Boucher in the fog and Brad MacMillan fighting.
Speaking of fighting, the Komets are second in the IHL in penalty minutes with 37 minutes per game, 6.5 minutes less per game than Port Huron. Fort Wayne has nine majors, though, tied for most in the league.
The Komets play tonight at Moline, Ill., against the Quad City Mallards. This will be the fourth home opener Fort Wayne has played in this season, including their own, one at Dayton and one at Port Huron.
I suppose that's cool, but the Komets have also faced some challenges so far because of the uneven scheduling.
When the Komets played at Port Huron on Oct. 17, Fort Wayne had played the night before in Dayton, while the Icehawks were able to rest up for their opener.
Friday night, the Komets played in a dramatic 2-1 victory at Memorial Coliseum, while the Mallards go into tonight's game having had a week off.
In other words, rest has not been on the Komets' side so far. That could be interesting.
