We've got lots to share in review of the Komets' 7-3 victory over the Wichita Thunder in Game 3 of the Presidents' Cup finals.

The author of that story, Jeffrey Lutz, started an amusing little Twitter war with fans with this tweet.
I'm hoping Indiana's NewsCenter will be putting up the special "Sound Off" from before the game, which had me among the guests, along with Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock's mom and Nick Boucher's dad. If so, it will be here. They will be having "Sound Off" before Game 4 on Saturday, too.
Not to put the cart too much before the horse here, but it's worth discussing who the Komets' playoff MVP has been. There are some obvious choices: Mike Vaskivuo, Chris Auger, Colin Chaulk and Boucher.
For me, out of that group, it would be Chaulk. Think about what he did on and off the ice for the team, when it was down 2-0 to Missouri and going on the road. And his performance in Game 6 of the conference finals was, as I've said, epic.
But, were I forced to vote right now, I think I would actually go with Jean-Michel Rizk. He may only be fourth in points (13), third in goals (6) and plus-2, but the Komets would not be playing without him. Here's why: In four games during the last two rounds, the opposition scored the first goal and he tied it at 1. That's one of the most amazing stats I can remember.
So, ranking them, as it stands now, I would go Rizk, Chaulk, Vaskivuo, Boucher, Auger.
