Clarification, update

Just got clarification from the ECHL about the eligibility of amateurs in the playoffs. They do not have to play five games to participate in the postseason.

With the way the Komets are playing tonight, they may not have to worry about it.

They are down 3-0 to the Cincinnati Cyclones after two periods at Memorial Coliseum.

Paul Crowder made it 2-0 with a power-play goal, off a rebound, at 17:12 of the second period. And a Byron Froese pass from behind the net set up Zach Budish for another goal with 54 seconds left in the period.
