Komets radio broadcaster Bob Chase, in his 59th season calling games for the team, will miss a second straight game tonight because of illness.
While there was no local broadcast of Friday's game at Moline, Ill., a 3-2 victory over the Quad City Mallards, Jim Shovlin will fill in for Chase tonight. It's his first time ever calling a hockey game, so let's try to be supportive, OK?
And here's hoping Chase gets well soon.

- Here's some recap of Friday's game. The other paper in the Quad Cities calls it a fluke.
- Greg Rajan has this hilarious catch on some bad hockey.
- Remember, I'd really like you to get involved in this contest. Don't be intimidated by the word "essay." It can be short and sweet. And it can also be about the makeup of this season's roster. There's no set criteria.
