Komets season ends

Fort Wayne, IN-- The Komets were eliminated from the playoffs after falling 4-3 in overtime Wednesday at Colorado in the seventh game of the ECHL Western Conference Finals.

The Komets opened the scoring quickly with Cody Sol's third marker of the playoffs at 2:07 of the first period. After Drayson Bowman pulled Colorado even at 4:50 the Komets finished the first period with a 2-1 lead on Jamie Schaafsma's tally with 41 seconds remaining.

Neither team could find the twine in the second frame. Shawn Szydlowski gave the Komets a two-goal cushion at 8:02 of the third with his fourth goal of the post-season. The Komets lead was cut in half when Matt Garbowsky scored for the Eagles at the 12:00 mark and Joey Ratelle tied the game at 3-3 at 16:51 to send the game into the third overtime of the series.

In the extra session Colorado's Ryan Olsen netted the clincher on the power play at 10:34 to give the Eagle's the series 4-3 and the right to defend their ECHL crown in the Kelly Cup Championship Finals against the Florida Everblades.

Goaltender Michael Houser made 26 saves on 30 shots while Joey Cannata logged the win for Colorado making 32 saves on 35 shots.
