Komets center Mathieu Curadeau sat out practice today with a toe injury, suffered when he blocked a shot during Saturday's 2-1 victory in Prescott Valley, Ariz. He should be fine in time for the Komets' game Friday at Quad City.
- What have the Komets (1-1-1) been working on improving? Offense. They have yet to tally an even-strength goal this season. Curadeau, P.C. Drouin, Brandon Naurato, Sean O'Connor and Leo Thomas are all without a goal. "These guys are 30-goal guys who haven't got one yet," coach Al Sims said. "We're hoping they get one, get some confidence and start filling the net."
- The Komets aren't expecting help to arrive from the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets anytime soon. The Blue Jackets have had some injuries, and they've been calling players up from Springfield of the American Hockey League. That hasn't left much to be sent down to the AA level. But seriously, how barren is the Blue Jackets' farm system if there isn't a single player at the AA level?
- Today's edition of "We've got Game," hosted by Justin Cohn and Ben Smith, will run live 4 to 5 p.m. You can use the radio button on the top right of this post, or listen to the replay whenever it's convenient. We will have a range of topics to discuss, including the Komets, Brett Favre, the NFL's crackdown on hits to the head, the World Series and the mediocrity of "Secretariat" -- the movie, that is.
