Fort Wayne, IN — The Komets will face the Flint Generals in the IHL Turner Cup Finals starting in Fort Wayne Saturday at 7:30pm.   The series will follow a 2-2-1-1-1 format.  The Komets will host game 2 Monday, May 10 at 7:30pm.  The series switches to Flint for game 3 Wednesday, May 12 at 7pm and game 4 Friday, May 14 at 7:30pm.  If necessary, game 5 will be at Fort Wayne Saturday, May 15 at 7:30pm and game 6 at Flint Monday, May 17 at 7pm.  If needed, game 7 will be at Fort Wayne Wednesday, May 19 at 7:30pm .

Both teams won their last three games of the semifinals to survive to the finals, recovering from 3-1 series deficits.  The Komets eliminated the Port Huron Icehawks Monday and the Flint Generals ousted the Muskegon Lumberjacks Wednesday.
