No eligibility problem for Saalfrank

The Komets trail the Allen American 1-0 after two periods at Memorial Coliseum, thanks to Colton Yellow Horn's goal during an odd-man rush in the second period.

But we've had a great goaltending battle between Fort Wayne's Gerry Festa and Allen's Marco Cousineau. Both teams have 25 shots.

By the way, Logan Saalfrank, who is filling in as the Komets' backup goalie, won't have any problems going back to play for IPFW. Because it's a club team, general manager David Franke said, there are no eligibility worries.
