Leo Thomas scored a hat trick, Sean O'Connor scored two goals and P.C. Drouin had three assists as the Komets blasted Dayton 5-2 to improve to 98 points on the season. They also climbed within five points of first-place Muskegon. The Komets have four games remaining and the Lumberjacks three.
I'm pretty sure this also clinches second place for the Komets.

Bobby Phillips has an upper body injury and may rest until the playoffs.
