The Komets have gone 2-1-1 during their last four games, ramping up their offense along the way.
Leading the charge have been the veterans, plus Sean O'Connor.
David Hukalo, Leo Thomas, P.C. Drouin, Guy Dupuis, Konstantin Shafranov and O'Connor tallied 11 goals and 28 points in four games last week.
"I think our vets are starting to play the way they're capable of," Komets coach Al Sims said. "They're starting to play every night the way we expect them to play. That's what we need. We need them to lead and then, hopefully, our rookies will follow."
- Sims notched his 300th victory on Thursday. He is the franchise's all-time leader. Greg Puhalski is second with 271.
- Not a Kevin Bertram fan? This might change your mind: During the last three seasons, he's plus-70, second only to Guy Dupuis' plus-74. This season, though, Bertram is plus-10 and Dupuis is minus-1.
