Komets leading after 1

PORT HURON, Mich. -- The Komets lead the Port Huron Icehawks 1-0 after one period. Center Leo Thomas scored the goal at 3:22. He skated out of the left corner and sent a wrist shot into the top far-side of the net.

It's been a back-and-forth game with a lot of stick work. It's kind of amazing that referee Scott Hoberg awarded only three power plays.
