Boucher apologetic, Molle isn't

Here's what Komets goaltender Nick Boucher had to say about his punch to Bloomington goalie Brian Mahoney-Wilson in the first period brawl: "You never want to see a guy go down like that. It was in the heat of the moment. Looking back now, I wish I would have just tied the guy up instead of coming in with fists flying."

As for Bryant Molle, who started it all by going after Ryan Palmer, he said: "I don't have any regrets. It was something that needed to be done to show this (Bloomington) team, as well as other teams, that we're not going to stand for those plays. It's dirty hockey."

The Komets are down 4-2 early in the second period.
