One period in the books here in the Coliseum, and the Komets lead 1-0.

Bobby Chaumont got the only goal of the period at the 7:20, slipping a cross-ice pass from Artem Podshendyalov past Bloomington goalie Brian Mahoney-Wilson's glove hand on a break initiated by a slick pass out of the neutral zone from Jamie Milam.

They'd been putting the heat on until that point, but there was some loose business in their own end in the final minutes of the period -- in one point there were back-to-back giveaways in their own end -- but Nick Boucher cleaned up the mess and kept the scoreboard clean on the Blaze's end.
