It's highly unlikely the Komets make the playoffs this season.
In the first ever meeting between the Komets and the Florida Everblades, the Komets wound up with a 6-3 loss Friday at the Coliseum.
Florida and Fort Wayne play tonight at Memorial Coliseum, in the first of back-to-back games here.
In my opinion, the Komets' most improved player so far this season has been Ryan Hegarty.
It's an important week for the Komets, if they want to make the playoffs, and not just because they have back-to-back games with the Florida Everblades (my favorite name and logo in the ECHL).
