The Komets came out hard tonight, but they're trailing the Port Huron Icehawks 2-0 late in the first period.
You can blame a couple of defensive lapses. The first saw Nick Lindberg break through the defense, accept a pass and then send a tough-angled shot past goaltender Nick Boucher. The second saw Tab Lardner, stationed at the left boards, fake a pass and send a shot into the near side of the net.
More than that, though, Komets fans must blame Port Huron goaltender Adam Russo. He has stoned the Komets several times. Leo Thomas, Sean O'Connor and Justin Chwedoruk (twice) have all had shots from point-blank range grabbed by Russo, who has made 12 saves.
