The atmosphere at Memorial Coliseum is electric. There are 8,687 fans in the building, which is utterly amazing considering the team had only 32 hours to sell tickets.
And the team? Wow. The Komets are up 4-0 late in the second period, thanks to goals by P.C. Drouin, Mike Ratchuk, Colin Chaulk and Mathieu Curadeau.
Rush goalie Danny Battochio was yanked after stopping 19 of 23 shots, so Tim Boron is back in.
Kevin Reiter has looked amazing in net for the Komets -- he has 17 saves -- and he has been controlling his rebounds amazingly well.
Really, you can't say enough about the heart of the leadership of this team. The Komets are 7-0 in games which they could have been elminated dating back to 2008, and they are 24 minutes from doing it again.
