A horrific 27 seconds killed the Komets' six-game winning streak Friday night.
The league-worst Bloomington Blaze got a goal at the end of a 2-on-1 rush from forward Vladimir Nikiforov at 14:44 of the third period and a breakaway goal from forward Jon Booras 27 seconds later for a 3-1 victory at U.S. Cellular Coliseum.
The lone goal for the Komets (11-6-0) came from forward Jean-Michel Rizk, who has 10 goals and 13 points in the last 13 games.
Rizk had tied it at 1 at 10:25 of the second period.
Making just his second start for the Komets, goaltender Alex Kangas stopped 40 of 43 shots. Zane Kalemba stopped 35 of 36 for Bloomington (4-12-2).
The Komets play host to the Evansville IceMen at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Coliseum, then take on Dayton there at 5 p.m. Sunday.
Jordy Trottier, who was waived by the Komets during training camp, played his second game with the Blaze.
