Larry Sterling is always verbally roughed up by the Fort Wayne fans, and occasionally roughed up by the Komets.
This is one of those times.
The former Port Huron Icehawks goaltender, now with the Mississippi RiverKings, gave up two goals on the first two shots, and the Komets have a 2-0 lead heading into the second period at Memorial Coliseum.
Meanwhile, Komets goaltender Kevin Reiter must be feeling like he's in unfamiliar territory. He has received very little in terms of goal support from his teammates this season.
In the 10 games Reiter has been the goalie of record, the Komets have scored only 19 goals. Reiter is 2-7-1 with a 3.05 goals-against average and a .890 save percentage.
