IN today's strip, we see Mike wondering if Elly saw him making an assist; judging from her expression, I'd say she did.

(Strip Number 4140, Original Publication Date, 5 March 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike hitting the puck and the goalie trying to block it; given the cheering in the background, something good happened.

Panel 2: Phil's clone tells him that they scored because he made an assist; since Mike is too busy playing the game to keep track, he marvels at this.

Panel 3: He then asks if Elly saw him do so.

Panel 4: Since she's cheering loudly and hugging John, I'd say she did; I'd also say she approved.

Summary: It's a good thing that this happened; his making an assist will take the sting off of losing the big game.
