  • Here are playoff rosters
    No real surprises on the Komets playoff roster. Click here to see who all the ECHL teams turned in. Of note for Fort Wayne:
  • K's need a power surge
    The Komets power play has shown some signs of life lately, but it still must be better if they want to defeat Reading in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, which begin Thursday.
  • K's hot at right time
    The Komets are one of the ECHL's hottest teams heading into the playoffs: They are 8-2-1 in their past 11 games, and they hope they are peaking at just the right time.

John Muse defends the goal during a recent preseason game at Memorial Coliseum.

Muse may be gone awhile

If you're hoping John Muse will only be gone for the two Komets games this weekend, don't hold your breath.

The goaltender was called up to Charlotte of the American Hockey League on Wednesday.

Charlotte is without either of its top two goalies -- Justin Peters and Mike Murphy -- as they were called to the parent club, the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes are without Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin.

Muse stopped all 30 shots he faced in Charlotte’s 5-0 victory Friday at Calder Cup-champion Grand Rapids.
