The Komets have 11 games remaining, including six on the road. Wednesday's game is their second of four out of five at home followed by five in a row on the road. They have three games — all at home — against Rockford, Muskegon and Kalamazoo, the top three teams in the league. They have six games overall against teams that are in the playoff race, including two on the road at Quad City.
Motor City, which is two points ahead of the Komets for sixth place, has eight games remaining, including five at home and six against playoff teams. The Mechanics may have the toughest schedule of the teams racing for a playoff spot as they face Kalamazoo three times, Fort Wayne once, Quad City once and Richmond once.
Quad City, which trails the Komets by four points for seventh, has nine games remaining, including six at home with six against teams in playoff contention.
Richmond, which trails Quad City by four points for the final playoff spot, has 11 games remaining, including five at home and five against playoff teams.
Despite having fewer games, Quad City seems to have the best control of its own destiny with two home games against the Komets and one against Richmond in the next-to-last game of the season.
