Komets win 5th in a row

The Komets extended their winning streak to five games, defeating the Evansville IceMen 5-2 at Memorial Coliseum on Friday night.

Josh Brittain scored twice -- he has six goals in the last seven games -- to pace the Komets. They also got a goal from Jean-Michel Rizk, who has scored in four straight games, as the Komets won the 4,500th game in franchise history.

Mike Emrick, the national voice of hockey in the U.S through his work on NBC, called the game alongside Bob Chase and Robbie Irons for WOWO. Emrick did all the play-by-play action in the second period.
