Game 7

kingraph comments:

Congratulations to swos on winning GDL X! What an amazing comeback in this series. He was one overtime away from getting swept, and also down 3-0 in game 5, coming back to win 4-3 in OT. Incredible turnaround! Congratulations to IceStorm on a great season, this one will sting for sure as he was a hair's length away from winning it all.

Swos went an AMAZING 8-0 in elimination games. Down 3-1 to Freydey, down 3-2 to kingraph, and down 3-1 to IceStorm, swos came up big when it mattered each time. What a great playoffs! He can now join kgman as the only 2 time champion!

Gotta give full marks to SWOS. Key coaching move imo was when he put in Ronning at C. Was hoping that would never happen, when it did I think it kinda threw me off my game. Then his D just shut me down the last 2 games.

Also, SWOS' GC was outstanding this series. Made several one timer manual saves.
