Mirasty fights, few here to see it

If Jon Mirasty fights and no one is here to see it, did it really happen?

Mirasty did fight Bloomington's Garrett Klotz, on his second shift with the Komets. It was a good little melee, but a draw by all accounts.

Too bad, there was only a crowd of 5,474 here to see it.

Well, that's the "official" number. Seems more like 3,900 to me. The point is, Mirasty may eventually put butts in the seats, but he didn't tonight.

You know what does bring in crowds? Winning. And the Komets are on track for their sixth straight victory, thanks to goals from Sean O'Connor, Colin Chaulk and Tab Lardner, good enough for a 3-0 lead in the second period.
