Komets come down to earth

Well, the Komets sure went from looking great to looking, um, not so great.

They have given up three unanswered goals and trail the Port Huron Icehawks 3-2 after two periods of play at Memorial Coliseum.

I really think Brad MacMillan will make a big difference when he gets back into the lineup, just because he'll add some energy. Other than that, the older players really need to start setting the tone better than they have been.

Still, isn't it funny how high our expectations are around here? This team is 12-6-1 and we nitpick everything.
