Schrock looking tentative

RAPID CITY, S.D. -- I'm not one who puts much stock in what I see from warm-ups, which is why you almost never see me write about it, but tonight it bears mentioning.

I'm watching Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, who suffered a cut on the top of his foot in the 5-2 loss in Game 1 to the Rapid City Rush, and he looks tentative to me.

He's clearly taking it easy. That's understandable. But Schrock is also the Komets' pedal-to-the-metal player, who always skates on the verge of out of control. Based on what I'm seeing right now, it's tough to imagine him being a huge factor.

But we'll have to see what happens.

By the way, the supervisor of officials in Games 1 and 2 has been Todd Bisson, who is also the manager of hockey administration for the CHL. He knows his hockey. He played against the Komets for Asheville and Adirondack.
