Tailing the Komets

Another 3-1 comeback?

As rare as it has been to see a team come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a series, the International Hockey League could see that happen twice this year. The Flint Generals beat the Muskegon Lumberjacks 5-2 on Tuesday night in Flint to force a Game 7 at 7 p.m. today in Muskegon.
This will be the first time since 1999 that both teams coming into the Turner Cup Finals will have survived seven-game semifinal series. It never happened in the Colonial/United Hockey League, and also happened in the IHL in 1975. Both times it happened in the IHL, it led to a seven-game finals.
This also likely means this year's Turner Cup Finals won't start until Saturday at the earliest, either in Muskegon if the Lumberjacks win or in Fort Wayne if the Generals win.

Either way, I want Muskegon to lose, either by Flint, or by us. We can't let them take the Kup because the coach and owner both made mention during a local talk show in Muskegon that they would dump the Turner Kup into Lake Michigan on a fishing trip....

Reason enough right there for the Slumber Cracks not to win, at all.

It would be satisfying to beat the Bumble Jerks.....Flint does worry me, they are physical as heck and will pound on our boys.

It is awesome to be in the finals...no matter who we play, stick it in their ear boys.

Here's the funniest line I found from Brendon Savage, "Flint to rent 3 busses for game 7". That's more fans then they've had all season.
