Game seven- After a scoreless first period, Cincinnati’s Justin Vaive tipped a shot from Jalen Smereck and passed goalie Ryan Fanti for the game’s only goal. In the third period, down 1-0, the Komets thought they had a game-tying goal with 1:11 remaining in regulation after a shot by defenseman Darien Kielb was re-directed by Oliver Cooper past goaltender Beck Warm. After an official review, the goal was disallowed for goaltender interference. Unable to recover, the Komets fell 1-0 as Ryan Fanti made 37 saves in the loss.
