Dominating period for K's

That was quite a second period for the Komets, who outshot the Evansville IceMen 18-5 and outscored them 2-0.

The Komets now lead the game 2-1 at Memorial Coliseum.

Josh Brittain netted the equalizer. He has scored in three straight and 6 of 7, and he has seven goals in the last seven games.

The second Fort Wayne goal came from Brandon Marino, who put in the rebound of a Dan Nycholat shot.

After letting Bob Chase and Robbie Irons mostly do their thing in the first period, Mike Emrick did play-by-play in the second. It was pretty cool. Most of the people following on Twitter said things like, "Yeah, this guy is pretty good. Pretty enthusiastic. Maybe we should keep him around."
