Molle back; some lazy play

Komets defenseman Bryant Molle, who left the ice for a spell because of an apparent shoulder injury, is back on the ice.

Many of his teammates look as if they never got to the rink today.

The Komets trail the Quad City Mallards 4-1 after two periods, and they just gave up one of the laziest goals of the season, a short-handed tally to Obi Aduba.

The Komets sure aren't playing like a team one point up in the Turner Conference. Rapid City, which is now one point back and tied with Evansville, could wind up stealing the whole shabang. The Rush has played two more games than Fort Wayne and Evansville, who have been sliding down the stretch.
