Komets tied after 1

All these new Komets players may not know the systems, but they do bring a lot of energy.

And the Komets are using it; they are tied at 1 with the Cincinnati Cyclones tonight after one period.

The Komets' goal was a beauty. During a 2-on-2 rush, Matt Firman sent a pass to Eric Giosa, who one-handed the puck into the net.

Cincinnati answered with a Josh Birkholz goal.

Some other things ...
