The Komets look much better than they did Friday, in a 2-1 loss to the Toledo Walleye, but the results are largely the same so far. They trail the Evansville IceMen 2-0 after two periods at Memorial Coliseum.
The drama has involved watching Brett Smith who, after a scrap with Matt Gens in the first period, has been jawing with Gens and his brother, Aaron, throughout the last 20 minutes.
I questioned coach Al Sims' decision to not start Kenny Reiter tonight, but Charlie Effinger has been solid with 13 saves -- almost all great ones -- on 15 shots.
Fort Wayne has been outscoring 10-3 in the last eight periods, and it could be en route to its third straight loss.
