Shows you how much I know

Two Komets got into two fights in the first three minutes of today's game -- Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock took on Damien Surma, and Jon Mirasty fought Matt McCue -- and I thought it was unwise of them to do it.

It's their third game in as many days, so why would the Komets want to tire themselves out and shorten their bench so early?

Fort Wayne leads Dayton 2-0 at the end of one period. Dayton, by the way, had Saturday night off.

Defenseman Craig Cescon netted his first goal of the season. It was set up by Colin Chaulk, and Derek Patrosso was wreaking havoc in front of the Gems' net at the time.

Cescon has two goals in the last three seasons. Not surprisingly, Chaulk retrieved the puck from the net for him.

Forward Sean O'Connor added a power-play goal off a rebound.

Fort Wayne has outshot Dayton 18-6.
