For only the second time in the last nine games, the Komets won. And they actually scored a bunch of goals -- five of them -- to ward off the Toledo Walleye in overtime.

Colin Chaulk reached 1,000 regular-season points for his career in the game.

Marino scored the winning goal that way with three minutes to go. And we scored three goals that way tonight. So obviously there is a leaking problem with Simpson on bad-angle shots and things we throw at his feet."
