Here are some plus and minus comments. As a long time hockey fan way back to Clinton Comets here is what I thought. Game was fun, Comets need a lot of skills work, Syracuse a faster skating team. After 1 period, the Crunch dominated action. Crowd seemed ok but lacked a lot of cheering at times. Felt like a something to do night, lets just go crowd. Tom Coyne has lost his emotions at PA announcer. Also the speaker system is so muffled, you can't hear a word Coyne says. The speaker system sucks. The Aud looked ok. The stage area with the curtins from the 60's is gross looking. I can see the crowds dwindling fast with the lack of talent that plays here. The team is not good yet. And whoever keeps the shots on goal is either drunk, busy or just keeps falling asleep. He had to miss at least 12-15 more shots that were not recorded. Big screens are nice and scoreboard is nice too. Overall I rate the night a B, the crowd a A- and the team a D. The sound system a F. I will go again. Other comments?

i agree with alot, but the crunch wernt that much faster, they had a couple speedy guys and at times made our bigger and slower guys ( 4 & 28) look slower. comets have some speed to, as far as speed goes, it was not one sided. the crunch took over the game in the third, as the comets played with that deer in the headlights look. its a extremly young team that has not played together before this year. they will be ok, and continue to improve. not alot of offense most of the night from the comets. but the crunch is one of the top teams in the ahl, they will make teams look bad. coynes a mess, but i have no trouble understanding him if he speaks. im not sure if its the sound system or not, they have it turned up too high is part of the problem.

Look closer at the shots on goal... there was a lot of shots blocked before they got to the goalie! If you were only looking for shots on goal you would know that!!

I know what a SOG is. Several were not recorded. If a goalie has to stop a puck from going in net, it's a SOG, and they missed a lot. Not a big deal just something that should be right.

my thoughts are why did the comets choose to let syr go first in the shootout? it was a good game, much better than game 1.
