RAPID CITY, S.D. -- Here's the big question: Why don't the Komets play like this when it's scoreless.
Since they fell behind 5-1 -- and that's the score late in the second period -- they have dominated the play.
But they've also had some bad luck. Colin Chaulk thought he had scored and it was waved off. I never saw it go in, though. And Matt Krug had a wide-open chance from a few feet out, and he whiffed.
Kevin Reiter was yanked after stopping 8 of 13 shots, then was very animated on the bench with Krug, after the last goal given up was redirected by Derek LeBlanc. Nick Boucher has looked fine in relief.
