WICHITA, Kan. -- The Komets lead the Wichita Thunder 4-2 after two periods at Intrust Bank Arena, and I'd say it's officially time for the Thunder to be worried.
I can't imagine the Komets winning the first two games, then getting three in a row at home, and losing the series.
The Thunder needs this one, badly.
Goalie Adam Russo was yanked, after stopping 16 of 20 shots. He was foiled in the second period by rookie Daniel Maggio on a shot from the point, then on a power-play rebound by Chris Auger and Mike Vaskivuo on another rebound.
Bryan Hogan replaced Russo.
Fort Wayne's Nick Boucher has stopped 17 of 19 shots.
