K's dominate dizzying period

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Even after coughing up two goals toward the end of it, I would say that was the Komets' most dominating period of the season thus far.

After a subpar first period, in which both teams scored a goal, the Komets scored the first four goals of the second and now lead 5-3 at Wings Stadium.

Fort Wayne had scored five unanswered goals in the game -- in the span of only 16 shots -- including two from Josh Brittain and two from Thomas Beauregard, who is looking like a fine pickup to replace the injured Chris Auger.

But the Komets faltered a little at the end; Daniel Nycholat's turnover led to a power-play goal and then Dustin Cloutier scored with a one-timer from the left circle.

It should be a good third period.
