K's need a home win

A victory tonight over the Cincinnati Cyclones would put the Komets at the .500 mark at home.

Amazing, isn't is? The Komets lead the ECHL in average attendance (7,444) fans per game, but they are 8-9-0 in front of them.

The Cyclones, who lead the division with a record of 19-10-2, are 8-4-2 on the road.

Tough opponent.

Fort Wayne is 17-14-2 overall.

I've heard there was at least one person waiting for a Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock bobblehead at 7:30 a.m. If that's true, it's either commitment or lunacy.

The coaches for the All-Star Game have been determined and they are Rob Murray of Alaska and Larry Courville of Reading.
