That takes us to pause number two on the express.

After the break - we switch gears to the ice.

The comets have another weekend off thanks to covid-19 protocols.

We'll tell you when you can expect to see them back and we'll hear from the team about their spirits amid the hiatus.


Today, the a-h-l announced that their road game tomorrow against the syracuse crunch is now postponed.

This marks the fourth straight game postponed since march 10th - when a player on the team contracted covid-19 due to contact with a positive player on the rochester americans.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The team did return to the ice for practice today and according to head coach trent cull - is preparing to be able to play in their game against the amerks next wednesday but are taking things day by day.

Trent cull: it's tough to reach out to the players and say hey we're just going to be frozen here for a day, we don't know what we're doing so it's tough to say too much because you never know what's going what's happening the next day or what's coming around the corner but i think that adaptability has been well received by our guys.

It is a pandemic, for us to be back even playing hockey is fantastic, it's great.

It's not perfect but you know what we've rescheduled a couple of games we're going to try to get these games in, we're developing hockey players and we know that even though it's only nine games in but we are happy to see how guys are doing from the start till we finish.

Make-up dates for tonight and tomorrow's postponed games are yet to be announced.

The comets are 6-2-0-1 so far this season.

(((2-shot))) that's it for us... we'll see you back here next friday night for another edition of sports express!
