  • Talked to new K's goalie Nagle
    I spoke to Komets goaltender Pat Nagle. Super nice guy. And I don't just say that because we're both from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
  • K's invading AHL camps
    When American Hockey League training camps opened today, there were lots of players under contract to play for the Komets this season who took part.

K's gone sour

Late in the second period at Memorial Coliseum, the Komets trail the Wheeling Nailers 4-2.

I don't know what to say, other than this: A lot of these players could be in trouble.

It was tied at 1 and the Nailers had tallied 17 of the last 21 shots before John Dunbar scored for the Komets from the right circle at 6:43 of the second period.

It took 14 seconds for the Nailers to answer with a Jack MacLellan goal.

At 11:30, Carter Rowney scored off a rebound, and he did it again 15 seconds later.

The crowd seems like its asleep. With the shots 22-14 for the Nailers, can't say I blame it.
