In their heads?

I have to wonder if Komets goaltender Nick Boucher is in the heads of the Rapid City Rush a little bit. The Rush, which usually finishes chances better than anyone, has been way too fancy on its shots. That has caused Jake Morissette to lose the handle on a breakaway and some other faux pas.

The Komets lead 1-0 after one period on a Brett Smith goal, during which he smacked his own rebound past goaltender Tim Boron.

The Komets have outshot the Rush 17-6.
