The Komets must have needed a little adversity -- again -- to get their paws on the Ray Miron Presidents' Cup.
After giving up an early penalty-shot goal to Aaron Davis, they won 6-3 to win the series against the Wichita Thunder 4-1.
Here's what some of the Komets had to say after the game ...
Defenseman Jamie Milam: "I wouldn't want it any other way. It can't be easy. You don't win championships by taking the easy routes. We earned this from the start to the finish. We battled all year long, though highs and lows. We had dry spells. We lost guys to injuries. We recruited new guys. There was a lot of heart in our locker room."
Center Brett Smith: "We've made it hard on ourselves all year long. We didn't want to give up the first one and it was a weird way for it to go down. But it's something we've done all year – we worked hard, came back and found a way to do it."
Playoff MVP Mike Vaskivuo: "I can't believe it. There are so many guys in this room that could have been the MVPs of these playoffs. I was fortunate enough that they picked me but I want to share it with all the guys."
Defenseman Jamie Lovell: "There's no way to describe it. Absolutely no way. I've been waiting for this for a long time. I'm on the right side for it this time. I was on the wrong side of it for a couple of years against these guys, and had to join forces with them to get it."
