  • Postgame reaction, video from Komets 3-2 victory
      KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- I'm not going to say these have been the best three games I've seen the Komets play to start a season -- and I've covered 18 seasons -- but this has to be the most exciting season-opening set I've seen.
  • Komets beat Kalamazoo
    KALAMAZOO, Mich. – In what had become a heated game, Shawn Szydlowski capped a 3-2 overtime victory for the Komets on Friday by stealing the puck in the Kalamazoo Wings zone and then sending a wrist shot past the goal with 49 seconds remaining.
  • Penalty shot foiled, K's tied at 2
    KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The Komets and Kalamazoo Wings are tied at 2 after two periods at Wings Stadium.

Good news for K's

Thomas Beauregard, who has 15 goals and 21 points in 35 games, will probably be in the lineup Saturday at Kalamazoo, Mich. He would have been back sooner from his upper-body injury, but he was required to serve his 21 days on injured reserve.

Forward Matt Syroczynski is a possibility to play for the first time this season with the Komets this weekend, but I don't know the likelihood.

Colin Chaulk, out with a foot infection, is still a couple of weeks away.

I asked some of the Komets about Ryan Lasch returning to Europe, thereby making it highly unlikely we seem him back in Fort Wayne this season. What I was told was, essentially, they felt Europe was better suited to his style of play.
