Generals and Komets Prepare for Game 4 on Friday
FLINT, MI - The Flint Generals and Fort Wayne Komets will renew hostilities on Friday night when they play game 4 of their Turner Cup Finals series at Perani Arena in Flint at 7:00pm. The Komets lead the series 2 games to 1, but the Generals are coming off the emotional high of a 7-6 overtime victory this past Wednesday Night.
All 3 games have been one goal victories, with the home team's coming out on top all three times. The first two games in Fort Wayne were more defensive battles as the Komets won game 1 by a score of 3-2 and took game 2 by a 2-1 score. The 13 goals the teams combined for Wednesday almost doubled the production of the first two games. Jamie Schaafsma and Bryan Smolinski each have 4 points in the first 3 games for the Generals while Justin Hodgman has 7 points and Matt Syroczynski has 5 points for the Komets. Rob Nolan has been between the pipes for the Generals for the first 3 games, sporting a 1-2 record with a 3.50 goals against average and a .896 save percentage. Nick Boucher has also played all 3 games, and has a 2-1 record with a 3.13 goals against average and an .894 save percentage.
Fort Wayne opted to stay in Flint between games 3 and 4, so Friday morning will offer a unique opportunity for the media that is an infrequent occurrence in the IHL, the Generals will be holding their morning skate at 10:30am, and the Komets will follow with theirs at 11:30am and the media is welcome to attend.
Game 4 is set for Perani Arena on Friday May 14th at 7:00pm. Tickets for that game are on sale at Perani Arena Box Office, by phone at (810) 744-0580 or online at www.ticketmaster.com
