OK, so where has this team been hiding?
I'm thinking this now after watching the Fort Wayne Komets score four goals in the third period and dismiss -- there's no other word for -- the Bloomington PrairieThunder in three games. Final was 6-3, which meant the Komets outscored Bloomington 14-6 in the series.
That's your sixth seed sweeping your third seed, boys and girls, in case you were wondering. It's your Slogging Along For Most Of The Season Komets morphing into your Playoff Komets -- who, in case your short-term memory is lacking, have been pretty stellar for about three years now.
So ... it's on to the next series. And we can, apparently, put to rest another piece of conventional wisdom.
Teams can't just flip a switch in the playoffs, the saying goes.
Well. That sound you just heard was the flip of one almighty switch.
