Key to winning Game 1

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

TOLEDO, Ohio – Game 1 of the Central Division semifinals, in my opinion, is going to come down to one thing: which team stays out of the penalty box.

In a playoff series between rivals, it’s important to come out and set the tone physically – to play close to the edge without going over it – and both the Komets and Toledo Walleye will try to do that today at the Huntington Center.

But both teams have a penchant for taking bad penalties, especially Fort Wayne, so I think the team that has the most power plays is going to win this one.
