The Komets had a two-goal lead, then squandered it. And just went you thought they'd lost, Jamie Milam scored a power-play goal with a slapshot from the slot to force overtime.
It's tied at 4 in Game 4 of the Turner Conference finals.
The Komets led 3-1 but goalie Nick Boucher was bested during a Mavericks power play 9:22 into the third, when forward Andrew Courtney scored off the rebound of a Kris Hogg shot, while Milam was in the penalty box for a hit after the whistle. Courtney has three goals and a series-leading seven points.
Just after killing off another power play, the Komets allowed the equalizing goal to forward Dale Mahovsky, who redirected defenseman David Simoes’ shot from the point at 12:49.
After Komets defenseman Brent Henley got a penalty for tripping, the Mavericks scored a power play goal – and their fans thought the game was cinched – when forward John-Scott Dickson scored off a rebound with 1:04 remaining in regulation time.
But the Komets answered after Colin Chaulk won a faceoff back to Milam, who stickhandled to the middle of the ice and put a slapshot into the bottom of the net with 22 seconds left.
This is one of the best games I've ever seen.
