The Komets' stretch of games is about to get amazingly difficult.

Tonight's game at Orlando, Fla., begins 25 games in 44 nights. In that stretch, they have consecutive nights off only four times and they plays four games in five nights a whopping four times.

At one point, beginning Dec. 27, the Komets play eight games in 11 nights.

This is the busiest stretch of games anyone seems to remember.
