On the cusp of their 4-3 victory over the Evansville IceMen, with which they clinched a playoff berth, here's a look at the playoff scenarios heading into today.
The Komets, who are tied for the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference with Wheeling, finish the regular-season tonight against Toledo. Wheeling, which holds the tiebreaker over Fort Wayne, plays tonight at Cincinnati. The seventh seed will play South Carolina, Kalamazoo or Orlando, while the eighth will take on Reading in a first-round best-of-seven playoff series.
I can about guarantee you, of that group, the Komets would like to play South Carolina.
There was a great feeling of relief in the Komets locker room tonight.
"It's a great feeling. Every guy has worked hard for this. It's a huge game, a great comeback win and character win for us," said Christian Ouellet, who scored twice, including the game-winner. "We played a great game and it's a great feeling. … We had great composure after the second period. We knew we had played a great game and knew we just had to get in the offensive zone and create more movement in front of the net. "
