    Check out today's story on the Komets, who are off to a 2-0-0 start this season. We explore how and why the captain, Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, has looked so good, so far this season.

Oh my, a wrist shot

I was talking before the game to the Komets' first captain, George Drysdale, and he said that in 1952-53, he scored 31 goals without taking a slapshot.

I told him, I wanted to see a wrist shot from the blue line tonight.

Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock -- the Komets' current captain -- did exactly that at 16:55 of the first period for a goal against the Elmira Jackals.

The teams are tied at 1.

Mike Vaskivuo, the former Komets star, opened the scoring at 2:00. He put the rebound of a Nik Pokulok shot into an open net. Those were the Jackals' first two shots of the game.
