Time to solve power outage

The Komets (18-14-8) have scored twice on their last 40 power plays.

That needs to change heading into tonight's game against the Elmira Jackals (14-22-4) at Memorial Coliseum.

Not entirely sure yet if we will see Dean Ouellet and Jason Dale, the new acquisitions, though I would think we will at least see Ouellet.

By the way, the Komets now have two Ouellets (they are not related) and the Mad Ants have two Tony Mitchells.

Very confusing, eh?

Fort Wayne has won three of four games. Elmira has lost three of five.

I have been getting some questions on whether John Muse could return to Fort Wayne now that Cam Ward has been sent down to Charlotte of the American Hockey League. I'm looking into it. But I doubt it; Ward is on a conditioning stint.
