On the second day of my "externship" at The Journal Gazette, I was tasked with shadowing two sports writers, Justin Cohn and Ben Smith.
The focus of the night was the hockey game between the Komets and the Evansville Icemen – both of whom have been struggling this year.
The Icemen came into the game with a 22-35-5 record and are currently at the bottom of the league.
Previously a championship-caliber team, the Komets are not even mediocre at 29-30-3.
The pace of the first two periods could be classified as slow and slower, with the quality reflecting where both teams stand this season.
All-in-all, the game up to the second period was fairly entertaining and being in the press box added to the excitement with the various reporters and commentators all going about their jobs.
At the end of the second period, the score was 3-2 in the Komets' favor.
