Video: 6 to watch in K's vs. Walleye

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

Check out this video highlighting the six players to watch -- three from the Komets, three from the Toledo Walleye -- heading into the Central Division finals that begin Friday at Toledo, Ohio.

Some of the footage is from Send to News. 

By the way, here are the predictions I made heading into the playoffs. I was wrong on two of eight series; I had picked Reading but Brampton won, and I was incorrect in picking Adirondack to beat Manchester (which was on the road for all the games past Game 2).

As you can see, I had picked the Komets to lose in the second round to Toledo in seven games. I'm awfully tempted to change that prediction, given how good the Komets looked in the first round and how much trouble the Walleye had with the Kalamazoo Wings, but I'm going to stick with Toledo in seven games.

• Adirondack beats Manchester 4-0

• Reading beats Brampton 4-3
