  • 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.

K's looking better

TOLEDO -- After one period at the Huntington Center, the Komets and Toledo Walleye are tied at 2.

Fort Wayne's goals have come from Matt Syroczynski and Nick Wheeler, but it was former Komets forward Stephon Thorne that tied it on a 2-on-1 rush after he caught Jamie Milam going for a big center-ice check.

The best play of the period came from Komets goaltender Charlie Effinger, who stopped Willie Coetzee on a breakaway.

Fort Wayne leads in shots, 14-12.

This is the best, energy-wise, the Komets have looked in a couple weeks.
