As expected, Nick Boucher is in net for the Komets in Game 5 of the Turner Cup Finals, which Fort Wayne trails 3-1 to the Port Huron Icehawks.
I'm watching warm-ups and it's not good if you're a Fort Wayne fan -- the Komets are strolling out there. They might be nervous or they are just dispirited, tough to tell.
The only way I see Fort Wayne winning this game is via a great individual effort, like if Boucher turns in a shutout or if Colin Chaulk or Luciano Aquino just takes the team on their shoulders.
The referee is Bob Langdon, who doesn't call hardly any penalties, so the Komets would be wise to come out physically and set the tone. But they haven't done that in this series.
