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.
