* Florida is leading Cincinnati 4-1 tonight so the Everblades will be nine points up on the Komets going into Friday's game.
* Gabe Guentzel has been recalled to Norfolk. He has played in five games so he would qualify for the Komets playoff roster.
* Scott Kishel is coming off IR and will replace Guentzel on Friday.
* Komets are not expecting to make a deal at the trade deadline on Thursday.
``Right now, I'm not in any discusiions with any teams on any players,'' General Manager David Franke said. ``Personally, I don't think we're going ot make any kind of a trade. Right now the players that we don't want to get rid of is what the other teams are looking for from us. I think we have the team that can get the job done to get into the playoffs.''
* Looks like Mike Hoban may have an arthogram on his ailing shoulder and might not be able to make it back to the ice this season.
* Al Sims and Colin Chaulk have retooled the lines this week, so we'll see that that looks like on Friday.
* Any amateur players the Komets would bring in must count on the regular roster and would count against the salary cap.
* The Komets don't expect Daniel Maggio to return, and they are doubtful on Kenny Reiter.
* Marco Cousineau will be ready to play next week.
