Former Komets forward Travis Granbois scored twice, including the game-winning goal on a redirection in the third period, as the Bloomington Blaze defeated Fort Wayne 4-3 on Sunday night.
Komets coach Al Sims said his team was getting its "confidence back ... and the swagger back," after a 4-1 victory over Quad City on Friday. Since then, the Komets have lost two road games, including Saturday's 5-0 loss at Dayton, Ohio.
Fort Wayne (29-14-2) remains tied with Evansville atop the Turner Conference. But the Komets have lost nine of their last 18 games, including three in a row to the Blaze (17-24-5), the last-place team in the conference.
With his team trailing 2-0 midway through the second period, Komets captain Colin Chaulk scored to end a scoreless string of 112 minutes, 57 seconds.
Bloomington's Jason Dale made it 3-1 on a short-handed breakaway at 12:38 of the third period, but Fort Wayne's Jamie Lovell answered with a shot from just inside the blue line 31 seconds later.
After Granbois' second goal, defenseman Jamie Milam answered with a power-goal -- the Komets had pulled their goalie, too -- to finalize the scoring at 18:28.
Fort Wayne's Nick Boucher stopped 28 of 32 shots. Bloomington's Brian Mahoney-Wilson stopped 22 of 25.
The teams meet again Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Coliseum.
