For the record, I like the Quad City Mallards' lime green uniforms, even if seemingly everyone else in the building tonight is calling them, "The Ugliest Things Ever Worn in Pro Sports."
That's a discussion for another time.
But we can all agree that the Mallards' play is not very good. The Komets are leading them 2-1 after two periods, outshooting them 27-15.
The Mallards' lone goal was on a 2-on-1 rush, after a Fort Wayne shot got batted down in front of goalie Kyle Jones.
The Mallards play with some spirit, but they just don't have a lot of skill. That's why they came into the night worst in offense and defense.
The Komets, meanwhile, have looked fairly sharp. Goaltender Tim Haun, who will play all three games thisweekend, has been solid. The Komets have a slew of shots. They even netted a power-play goal.
Of course, now that I wrote all that, the Mallards will probably take control of this thing.
