  • K's clinging to 1-goal lead
    Joey Leach scored his first goal of the season to give the Komets a 1-0 lead in the second period against the Greenville Road Warriors tonight at Memorial Coliseum.
  • More moves for K's
    The American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters have called up yet another Komets player, this time forward Reid Petryk, who was scoreless in 10 games. Seems strange that they would call him up and leave Nathan Condon here.
  • What a great game
      Especially after the way the Komets got it handed to them in a 6-3 loss Wednesday at Toledo, Ohio, their performance Friday in a 3-1 victory over the Kalamazoo Wings was impressive.

A lack of confidence

Maybe the Komets need a sports psychologist, because they just seem to lack confidence.

They came out hard against the Toledo Walleye, got an early goal from Jamie Milam for a 1-0 lead, then they fell apart.

Toledo got a Byron Froese goal, when his pass from the boards ricocheted off a defenseman and into the net, and the Komets really didn't threaten beyond there.

It's tied at 1 after one period at Memorial Coliseum.
