Settling in

Two periods gone, and it's still 2-0, Komets.

Both teams had their chances in the second period, but it was Port Huron that had the best one. With 2:11 left and the Icehawks skating a man up, Mikael Bedard found himself on Komets goalie Tim Haun's doorstep without a soul closer to him than Kendallville. But he shoveled the puck wide, and the score remained unchanged.

Haun's made 15 saves after two, and the Komets have thrown 27 pucks at Sterling. On to period three.
