CINCINNATI -- The Komets hadn't played since Saturday's 6-1 loss at Loveland, Colo., but if you thought that meant they'd have some energy you'd have been incorrect.
Twelve of the first 14 shots went for the Cincinnati Cyclones, who lead 1-0 after one period thanks to an Andrew Conboy knuckling shot that fooled goaltender Marco Cousineau.
The Cyclones are finishing their checks and just playing a much more complete game.
Jamie Milam has looked OK for the Komets, so far, in his return.
There just doesn't seem to be urgency with this team right now. Brett Smith is bringing a lot of energy; beyond that, I'm not noticing much right now.
