Not a record, but close

Fort Wayne's Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock scored twice, 10 seconds apart, in the first period for a 2-1 lead over the Quad City Mallards.

It's not a record, but it's close.

Lloyd Maxfield scored nine seconds apart in 1960 for the Komets.

The first Schrock goal came off a rebound during a power play. The second came as he attacked the rebound of a Leo Thomas shot and the puck went off his skate and under goaltender David Brown.

Incensed that the goal wasn't waved off for having kicked the puck in, the Mallards took a penalty for delay of game. On the ensuing power play, Leo Thomas scores from the left circle for a 3-1 lead.

The Komets, who have won back-to-back games for the first time this season, look awfully good.
