After missing on an early breakaway, Matt Syroczynski scored off a rebound to tie it at 1 between the Komets and the Evansville IceMen at Memorial Coliseum.
They have outshot the IceMen 13-7.
Jeff Deslauriers gave up his worst goal since joining the Komets, though, when a backhand shot from the blue line eluded him.
The Komets' new player is J.P. Labardo, a rookie, who had 55 goals and 128 points over five Ontario Hockey League seasons with Guelph and Erie. He had 24 goals and 62 points in 67 games this season.
