A stroke of genius?

FLINT, Mich. -- Coach Al Sims' decision to go with Tim Haun in net, for the first time since his Game 3 loss in the semifinals, looks like it might have been a stroke of genius.

Late in the second period, Haun has stopped all 17 shots he's faced, the Komets are playing great defensively and they lead the Flint Generals 2-0 in front of a mostly-full house at Perani Arena.

It's been a very physical game. Sean O'Connor and Leo Thomas have the goals. But I expect the Generals are going to throw everything possible at the Komets come the third period.
