The Missouri Comets are home to face Milwaukee tonight at 7:35 PM. The Comets are looking to get a win against one of the two teams that have beat them this year. Milwaukee won in early December when they took the Comets to overtime and eventually the shootout. It was one of the Boris Pardo's best games for the Comets, having stopped five of six shooutout attempts in the match.
The Comets are fresh off of a win in Cedar Rapids when they bounced back from a loss against St. Louis to dominate the Rampage 11-4.
"I have to say I am very happy with the performance of the team," explained Comets head coach Vlatko Andonovski after the match. "We had a good team meeting last night and everybody felt good going into the game. I had no doubt, no doubt in my mind at all that we would play one of the best games today. Everybody was ready to perform and do their best and they did."
The Comets led 5-3 at half but took control after the break, scoring four in the third another pair in the fourth before finally giving up a late goal.
This will be the Comets third game in five days in season that the Comets have already played two more games than any other team. They do get a break soon though, after Milwaukee they will host Chicago on the 9th and will not play again until the 31st when Baltimore comes to town.
The rest will be good for the Comets, Alain Matingou has missed the entire season so far, Max Touloute only played five games and was leading the league in goals when he was hurt. Add in the recent injury to Brian Harris and the Comets have missed some quality players for a number of games.
One player that recently came off of injury is Steve Paterson, he started in goal in Cedar Rapids and only gave up four goals on twenty-four shots.
