Bad blood? Maybe

No matter how you cut it, this could be interesting.

The Komets and Dayton Gems are playing for the fourth straight game. That's just asking for trouble; at this point, they have to be sick of seeing one another.

For the second straight night, the referee will be Joshua Stockel. Back-to-back nights with the same official, never a good idea, and that's even with the best of them. I've heard this guy is not in that category.

Anyone want to be Brandon Naurato makes it 4 for 4 in scoring a goal against his former team, the Komets? I didn't think so.
