In his words: Komets' Brandon Marino

Monday, March 18, 2013 - 12:01 am

For the entire season, Brandon Marino has been carrying the Komets' offense. Over the last three home games he's finally gotten some help as Fort Wayne has scored 22 goals.

What's it like to get lots of help with the scoring?

I think we've been trying to score all year, so scoring tonight show we did well, but we also gave up five goals which you don't want to do. Luckily, we got the win.

You've finally gotten lots of goals these last three home games.

Yeah, we're kind of finding our game at home, and it's nice for our fans to see us win at home. It's late in the year, but better late than never. Hopefully, we keep that going until the end of the year, and you never know what can happen in the playoff race. It's going to be tough, but hopefully we'll be good for the fans the last six games, and we'll see what happens.

What's the feeling like when you're in this situation?

We know how tough it's going to be, but you can't dwell on that. You just try to play your best every night and try to win every game that you can. If the cards don't lay right, at least we know we worked hard and did everything we could.

Tell me about new forward J.P. Labardo.

He had a good game and got his first goal. He was really good at getting into open spots. Me and Smitty gave him the puck in the slot four or five times, and we just told him to keep shooting because of them would go in and it finally did.
