Who do you want to see the Komets play in the first round of the playoffs? If they win Friday in Wheeling and Saturday in Cincinnati, the Komets will really help Kalamazoo's cause to finish third, which could mean more games against the Wings after they've already had 15 regular-season games. Hello, Joel Martin!
If the Komets manage to overtake Toledo, they could end up playing either Wheeling, Cincinnati or Indy in the first round. Indy is closer, but who knows how much those tickets will cost? That could be ridiculous.
What do you think?
First two dates also announced
From a Komets press release:
Five goals on 12 shots, two of three on the pp. Held Elmira to six shots also. A perfect first period.
From an ECHL press release:
Mike Embach puts it in off Mike Clemente's glove.
Toledo and the Komets have clinched with Cincinnati's loss last night. The Komets can clinch home-ice advantage for the first round with a win tonight.
Pat Nagle is returning from Utica of the AHL as well. He played one game with the Comets.
Walleye scored two goals in the third against Wheeling to tie and then won with four shootout goals to pass the Komets by two points for first place. That was the Walleye's last game in hand, too.
