It's always nice when you make the famed "Puck Daddy" blog, which I did today. Click here.
It's also always nice when your goalie leads the league in save percentage and goals-against average, as the Komets' Kenny Reiter does in the ECHL with a SP of .973 and a GAA of 0.83. (By the way, I asked, and he does prefer Kenny to Ken.)
Also nice is when you haven't allowed a power-play goal, as the Komets (1-1-1) haven't in 14 short-handed opportunities, which is amazing. Only one other team in the ECHL is 100 percent: Elmira at 11 for 11.
Not so nice is when there's an NHL lockout forcing teams to do things like this -- click here -- to entertain their fans.
As for the Komets' game tonight against the Evansville IceMen (0-2-0), Marco Cousineau is expected to make his debut in net for Fort Wayne. This is where it gets interesting; if he plays well, Charlie Effinger could be the third goalie for a spell.
