I have been mostly impressed with the caliber of play in the ECHL. But there is one big complaint I have -- the inability to see sustained offensive plays -- and that's on display tonight.
The Komets and Toledo Walleye are scoreless after one period at Memorial Coliseum, and it has been a snoozer.
Toledo has outshot the Komets 14-10. But neither team has been able to control the puck for any length of time. There was one sequence where the teams just kept shooting it back and forth to each other in the neutral zone for what seemed like an eternity.
The ECHL has a lot of speed, and the players have a lot of potential, but sometimes the puck is just a hot potato no one seems to want.
The Komets had a penalty shot in the period, but Brett Smith completely missed the net.
