Cyclones hockey game #14: playoff edition!

The Cyclones were back in Cincinnati for game six of the ECHL Eastern Conference
semifinals against the Fort Wayne Komets. After game two, the 'Clones left for Indiana
with the series all deadlocked at 1-1. They returned to Cincinnati with a commanding 3-2
advantage in the best of seven series. All they needed to do was take one of the next
two games within the friendly confines of US Bank Arena to book their second trip to the
ECHL Eastern Conference Finals in as many years
. Let's do this!
