I've given this great thought and decided, it's no contest, the Komets should be rooting for the Flint Generals to win back-to-back games and reach the Turner Cup Finals.
I know, the Komets struggled all season with the Generals. I also know, Muskegon has some injury issues at goaltender. However, there's one thing that trumps everything -- home-ice advantage.
The Komets just came off their third successful comeback from a 3-1 deficit in six years. Home-ice advantage has played a big part in that. There's no question, really, the Komets have the best home-ice advantage in the IHL, so they had better root for Flint on those merits alone.

- I guess if you cover this league long enough, you see just about everything. Despite today's announcement by the North American Hockey League that it will field a team at Perani Arena next season, the IHL still plans to have a team at the same venue. Let me get this straight: Flint hasn't proved it can support one team -- although, ownership problems have had the biggest thing to do with that -- and now it's going to have two?
- Don't forget, tonight's episode of "We've got Game" will have Komets center Justin Hodgman among the guests. You can use the radio button on the right to listen to the show live from 6 to 7 p.m., or anytime after that you can hear the replay. Listen Wednesday at work, Thursday while playing the Halo beta or Friday while downloading the latest Paramore album, whenever.
