  • Komets affiliate with Avs, Lake Erie
    The Komets have aligned with the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and their American Hockey League team, the Lake Erie Monsters.
  • This is sad news
    Former Komets star Joe Kastelic, who once owned the record for most goals scored in the IHL, died Wednesday at 81. He skated for the Komets from 1953 to 1957 and then again in 1960-61.
  • Major signings for Komets
    The Komets bolstered their roster with a potential No. 1 goaltender, a former first-round NHL draft pick, a familiar face and player who should be popular with the fans.

Interesting video from interesting loss

The Komets gave up three unanswered goals in the 5-2 loss at Kalamazoo, Mich., on Nov. 23, 2012, but there is some interesting action. Check out the Brandon Marino-to-Jean-Michel Rizk goal and a couple of incidences with goalie Kenny Reiter.

Video of K's loss has interesting stuff

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The Komets lost their fourth game of the last five -- 5-2 at Kalamazoo on Friday night.

And they did so by giving up three unanswered goals in the third period.

If you are having problems viewing the video, click here, as we've been having some site difficulties lately.

My favorite part of this video comes at about the 2:30 mark, when goalie Kenny Reiter shoves Brent Henley out of the way to get at a Wings player.

You can also see the play that had some of us wondering if Reiter would be able to stay in the game.

The Komets need to play smarter and more consistently moving forward; they play host to Toledo tonight at Memorial Coliseum.
