Muskegon defenseman Jason Lawmaster has been suspended indefinitely by the IHL for throwing a broken stick into the stands during his team's 5-2 loss at Perani Arena.
So, he will be unavailable for tonight's Game 7.
Seriously, is there is a stupider act than a hockey player can have than to throw a stick into the stands? You know it's going to be a suspension.
This note from Bill Khan of The Flint Journal: The Generals are 1-5 in Game 7s.
- The Komets seemed very loose at practice today. I think they're pretty stoked that the Generals and Lumberjacks are going the distance in their series, giving the Komets some needed rest. A topic of some discussion among the Fort Wayne players: They need to keep their goals-against average down against whichever team they face. In the semifinals, the Komets allowed 2.57 goals per game, after allowing 2.41 during the regular season. But remember, this included a 4-0 shutout in Game 7. A big key to getting the defensive numbers in order would be cutting down on the penalties.
- I will be honest, I really can't get a gauge on which team the Komets want to face. I would think they'd be saying, "Go Flint," since they would have home-ice advantage against the Generals, but there is a definite recognition that the Generals have fared well against the Komets and that they have great goaltending.
- No, Komets coach Al Sims didn't go scout Game 6 at Flint. He watched it on the B2 Notworks, er, Networks.
