Paced by 41 saves from goaltender Tim Haun, the Komets defeated the Muskegon Lumberjacks 4-2 on Saturday night.
Fort Wayne now trails Muskegon by seven points for second place in the IHL.
"When you're busy, you try and stay focused," Haun said. "That's the good thing about being busy (in net). You're in the zone and trying to stop everything coming your way.
The Komets are on a 4-0-1 run.
"We're starting to climb the ladder," Haun said. "We've turned that corner."
- The top line of Colin Chaulk, Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock and Konstantin Shafranov accounted for all four goals and seven points. Does anyone else see Schrock becominga huge star in this town?
- The Komets' rookie-laden defense, despite giving up too many shots, looks better than I would have expected given the inexperience.
- Coach Al Sims said David Hukalo (concussion) and goalie Nick Boucher (groin) could be back in the lineup next weekend, but not Sunday against Dayton.
