No offense, but where's the offense?

MUSKEGON, Mich. -- The Komets continue to struggled to find some offense, and they're going to struggle to win this game.

Todd Robinson just scored during a 5-on-3 power play late in the second period, and the Muskegon Lumberjacks lead the Komets 2-0.

It was just a matter of time before the Komets' lack of offensive production caught up with them. This could be the day. The Komets are playing very well defensively, though.

There was a funny moment in the period. Komets coach Al Sims called referee Ian Croft something that cannot be repeated here, but it may have been heard in New York it was so loud. Every parent in the place was covering their kid's ears.
