Myriad chances for K's in loss

The Komets lost 3-2 to the Greenville Road Warriors, despite getting the majority of the scoring chances at Memorial Coliseum.

Home frustration evident

This sums it up to me: The Komets are 9-8-9 at Memorial Coliseum this season and have won only two of their last eight games there.

They lost 3-2 to the Greenville Road Warriors at home Friday.

The game was tied at 2 before Greenville finished off a 3-on-1 rush with an Andrew Rowe rebound goal 2:33 into the third period. Rowe's shot was going wide of the net before it caromed off the skate of Fort Wayne defenseman Simon Danis-Pepin.

Greenville has won eight of its last nine games.

"I think the effort was there tonight but it wasn't the result we wanted and that's all," said Komets defenseman Joe Hartman, who opened the scoring 4:16 into the first period, when his shot from the top of the right circle ricocheted off a Greenville player and slipped past goaltender Jason Missiaen.

"They took advantage of the opportunities they were given and we weren't able to do that. And that's why the result was a win for them. It's unfortunate, but we have to be able to look past this."

Check out the video of highlights done tonight, which are at the top of this post. This might look a little different as I used a different camera, so let me know what you think. I will continue to hone this.
