Comets vs Wave Playoff Game PBP

Here's the play by play for tonight's Comets playoff game against the Milwaukee Wave.

Have some trouble getting the Cover It Live console to load right now. Hopefully it'll load soon and I can get going. The teams are going into the locker rooms now after finishing warm ups.

Still having issues, Galaxy girls are out right now. If it doesn't load soon I'll do the first quarter just here, old school style. It may not be as intensive as previous ones but at least you'll get PBP.
