That ... was ... awful

The Komets said they were going to right their problems at home. Instead, they just played the worst period of the season. They gave up four goals on nine shots and are down 4-0 to the Kalamazoo Wings after one period at Memorial Coliseum.

Marco Cousineau was yanked after allowing three goals on seven shots -- two were from the blue line -- and Charlie Effinger replaced him.

Fort Wayne had some strong changes early in the period but was thwarted by Joel Martin.

Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock fought Harry Young late in the frame.
