K's special teams tearing it up

The Komets' special teams are tearing it up. They lead it 4-0 late in the second period, thanks to three power-play goals and an short-handed goal.

And two guys who have struggled to put the puck in the net have helped get it done.

Mathieu Curadeau, who had been stoned on shots from point-blank range, scored a short-handed goal after Sean O'Connor's forecheck broke the puck free at 12:02 for a 3-0 lead.

P.C. Drouin, who probably wouldn't have played had defenseman Bobby Phillips' shoulder been OK, scored on a high shot from the point at 16:49.

Leo Thomas also has a goal in the period.

Bloomington goalie Marco Emond doesn't look good; he's given up four goals on 20 shots, letting two trickle past him, and he's had some big rebounds.

Nick Boucher looks solid for Fort Wayne.
