The Komets lead the Dayton Gems 2-0 after one period at Memorial Coliseum.
Scoring were Matt Syroczynski, who was set up by Guy Dupuis' fake shot from just inside the blue line, and P.C. Drouin, who scored on a penalty shot.
He got that penalty shot after he was pulled down from behind by defenseman Todd Spencer. The call was made be referee Brett Klosowski.
It was the first goal on a penalty shot by the Komets since Feb. 2, 2008, when Mathieu Curadeau scored. The last penalty-shot goal at the Coliseum had been by Drouin on Jan. 18, 2008.
