  • No discipline for Wings
    There will be no discipline from the league office for the Kalamazoo Wings, in the aftermath of the Komets' 4-3 overtime victory Friday at Wings Stadium.

    Make sure you check out this story on the Komets, who are off to a 3-0-0 start heading into tonight's game at Memorial Coliseum against the Missouri Mavericks. Remember them from the CHL?
  • Postgame reaction, video from Komets 3-2 victory
      KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- I'm not going to say these have been the best three games I've seen the Komets play to start a season -- and I've covered 18 seasons -- but this has to be the most exciting season-opening set I've seen.

The emergency goalie is ...

If Wichita's Adam Russo cannot play tonight in Game 3 of the Presidents' Cup finals -- and I'm hearing he won't be able to -- then the Thunder will look to Bryan Hogan.

Hogan has stopped 26 of 29 shots in the playoffs.

So who would be Hogan's backup? It looks as if it'd be Scott Darling. Click here to see his stats.

As I've written, I don't think this is that big of a deal. Hogan has looked better against the Komets this season than Russo.

But if Hogan goes down, then, well, that's a different story.

Of course, Russo could be playing. I know he's in Fort Wayne, but he allegedly told some fans he's not dressing. So take that with a big grain of salt. A big one.

Russo has a concussion suffered in Game 2, a 6-3 Komets victory.
