  • Ouellet back for K's
    The Komets will have Dean Ouellet back tonight for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Reading Royals. He missed the last 17 games with a concussion.
  • Priming Game 3
    The Reading Royals are the defending champions of the ECHL, and it would be naïve of the Komets to think it would be easy to unseat them.
  • Clarke is K's Mr. Steady
    The Komets rely on their veterans to temper the enthusiasm of the highs and get through the frustration of the lows. And no one in the locker room is more even keel than Aaron Clarke, a 31-year-old forward.

Memorable night for good and bad

The Komets' 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Cyclones in an overtime shootout was preceded by the jersey retirement ceremony for Chuck Adamson (No. 1) and Nick Boucher (No. 33). Check out all the highlights.

Video recap of the night

It was a memorable night at Memorial Coliseum for the good (the jersey retirement ceremonies), the exciting (the goaltending was good) and the bad: The Komets coughed up a three-goal lead in the 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Cyclones in an overtime shootout.

Check out the video package I put together of the whole evening. It's at the very top of this post.
