There are some big differences here, such as no Colin Chaulk to say, "Tired is for losers." No Nick Boucher in net. And Larry Sterling isn't the opposing goaltender. But since 2008, the Komets are 10-1 in games in which they could have been eliminated.
They will face such a situation Tuesday at Cincinnati.
