Komets enjoy 1st trip to face Mudbugs

The Komets had to enjoy their first trip to Bossier, La.

Fort Wayne posted back-to-back wins over the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs with a 2-1 victory Saturday.

The Komets (15-18-5), who won 5-3 Friday, were playing the Louisiana team in the Mudbugs’ home arena for the first time since joining the CHL.

Tab Lardner gave the Komets a one-goal lead 22 seconds into the third period, cashing in on Derek Patrosso’s second assist of the night against Bossier-Shreveport (22-19-2).

Lardner also picked up a five-minute fighting major in the third after he tangled with the Mudbugs’ Steven Crampton 3:16 into the period.

Dustin Molle opened the scoring for the Komets at 14:19 in the second period. David Rutherford tied the game at 1 for the Mudbugs with a power play goal at 15:16.

Kevin Reiter stopped 29 of 30 shots for the Komets.

John DeCaro stopped 20 of 22 shots for Bossier-Shreveport.

The Komets have won six consecutive road games, and they continue their weekend road swing with a 5 p.m. game today against Texas. The Komets may want to stay on the road after going 1-3-3 in their last seven home games.
