Here are the quotes the Komets used on the scoreboard to help fire up the crowd before Monday night's 4-0 victory by Fort Wayne:
- "Never underestimate the heart of a champion." -- coach Al Sims, although he stole that from Rudy Tomjanovich.
- "Tired is for losers." -- Colin Chaulk
- "It's going to be a great fight." -- Guy Dupuis
- "See you Monday night." -- Colin Chaulk
- "I had so much fun last year, I came back to do it again." -- Justin Hodgman
There is a possibility, if the Komets play Muskegon, that the series starts Friday. The most likely scenario is that the series, against either team, would start Saturday. But it's really too tough to tell, and we won't know until Thursday.
Oh, and it could be formatted 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 or 2-2-1-1-1, mostly because of events at Memorial Coliseum, as usual.
- Stan Drulia resigns in Port Huron. No shock there. Good coach, just not in elimination games, but I know he wasn't happy with the direction of the IHL.
