Komets upend Everblades

The Komets got a much-needed 5-2 victory over the Florida Everblades on March 14, 2014, at Memorial Coliseum.

K's impress in big game

It does kind of make you wonder where this has been all along, doesn't it?

The Komets' 5-2 victory over the Florida Everblades was impressive.

In case you are wondering, yes, Chris Auger is hurt now, too. He has an upper-body injury.

"We made the most out of the chances that we had," coach Gary Graham said.

He added that the Komets were just OK in the first period but got better until they had the 5-1 lead, and then they sagged a touch.

"In the first period, we didn't do a good enough job protecting the net front," Graham said. "We had too many guys that were standing around watching. That team is very good on the cycle and they can hurt you, if you give them time and space and aren't physical on them. You have to be physical on their forwards or they can hurt you and put a lot of pucks on the net."

The Komets want to make sure they don't give up as many shots tonight -- Ben Meisner made 39 saves -- but at the same time Meisner seems to get in a better rhythm when he faces a lot of shots.

The Komets must make sure they play just as well -- or better -- tonight, or this big victory will have been for naught.
