If the K's blow this game ...

If the Komets blow this game, then they don't deserve the Turner Conference crown.

They lead the Dayton Gems 6-2 after two periods at Memorial Coliseum.

The big difference is they are attacking the net. After it was tied at 2, T.J. Miller and Brett Smith broke the game open by rushing the net and scoring off rebounds.

Colin Chaulk has two goals tonight. Mike Vaskivuo, who is probably making people forget about Artem Podshendyalov, has one goal and four points.

Dayton goalie Larry Sterling has stopped 27 of 33 shots and leads the game with 14 penalty minutes, including a misconduct for arguing a delay of game penalty after knocking the net off for the second time tonight.
