RAPID CITY, S.D. -- I'm in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, and I must say, it's very nice.
It is a lot like L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, except a lot more modern. Ribbon board and everything. It's also a little like U.S. Cellular in Bloomington, just smaller.
The seats here really put the fans close to the action and I could envision this place getting very loud.
The Komets will go with the same lineup as they had in the first round against Bloomington. Bobby Phillips didn't wind up making the trip because of his shoulder injury.
