There is so much riding on these two games. 1. Komets need points almost any way they can get them because Florida has nine straight home games coming up; 2. Where does Ben Meisner fit in all this now? Does he regain the trust of the guys? If you don't think he needs to, then you don't understand team dynamics; 3. They could end up facing Kalamazoo in the first round of the playoffs, and the Wings have been the ECHL's hottest team; 4. The rivalry which certainly seems to be re-ignited this year with Colin Chaulk, and now Aaron Clarke. You know Kalamazoo would love to knock the Komets out.
The encouraging thing for the Komets is it seems like they have been playing better overall, controlling more of the play, getting better scoring opportunities and doing a better job defensively as a team. If they can get Jason Dale and Matt Carter back somehow, they could be absolutely loaded at forward. Dean Ouellet is a little more iffy.
What do you think?
