I no longer believe

Coming into tonight, I felt like there were two people who still believed the Komets would make the playoffs -- me and Colin Chaulk.

Well, I've changed my mind.

After two periods at Memorial Coliseum, the Komets trail the Florida Everblades 3-1. The Komets seem to be coasting to me, with the exception of a few players.

I know the Komets were 3-1-1 coming into this game. But would they have won any of those games had Jeff Deslauriers not been amazing? Nope.

If this is the most they could get up for this game, how could they get it together to leapfrog three other teams?
