The Komets and Missouri Mavericks are tied at 1 after one period at Memorial Coliseum. The Mavericks have a breakaway goal from Ryan Jardine, and the Komets a breakaway goal, while short-handed, from Leo Thomas. It has been a great game so far; lots of hitting and great goaltending from Nick Boucher and Gerry Festa.
