Komets bullying Lumberjacks

Colin Chaulk was pretty jacked today about being selected as The Player of the Decade. He looks like it. He scored 59 seconds into the game tonight, and added another one later, and the Komets lead the first-place Muskegon Lumberjacks 4-0 late in the first period.

Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock was joking that he was surprised he wasn't selected for the Team of the Decade. If he always played like this, maybe he would have deserved some discussion. OK, not really, but he's scored a goal from close-range and had two fights.

The Komets' other goal came from Leo Thomas.

The Komets are completely dominating, from what I can see on the internet pay-per-view, interesting since they hadn't practiced on the ice since Tuesday.

Komets fan Brandon West told me there are more than 30 Fort Wayne fans there, and that he had to wait in line 20 minutes for tickets. He also noted that the goals from Schrock and Thomas went off blocker-side post and into the net against Sebastien Centomo.
