  • K's clinging to 1-goal lead
    Joey Leach scored his first goal of the season to give the Komets a 1-0 lead in the second period against the Greenville Road Warriors tonight at Memorial Coliseum.
  • More moves for K's
    The American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters have called up yet another Komets player, this time forward Reid Petryk, who was scoreless in 10 games. Seems strange that they would call him up and leave Nathan Condon here.
  • What a great game
      Especially after the way the Komets got it handed to them in a 6-3 loss Wednesday at Toledo, Ohio, their performance Friday in a 3-1 victory over the Kalamazoo Wings was impressive.

K's determination paying off

The Rapid City Rush' determination to play physically is getting outdone by the Komets' determination to win, as they did 3-1 on Wednesday, giving them a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Turner Conference semifinals.

The Rapid City Journal wasn't at the game, but produced this story. In it, Rush coach Joe Ferras talks about the size of Fort Wayne goalie Nick Boucher. He's generally listed as 5-foot-11. He's just playing big.
