KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The hightlight of the second period for the Komets was a short-handed breakaway goal by Matt Firman, his first in the professional ranks.
Beyond that, there wasn't much. Komets captain Colin Chaulk even put the puck into his own net -- top shelf -- while trying to clear it.
And Kalamazoo leads Fort Wayne 5-2, and it has outshot the Komets 27-19.
I'm surprised that coach Al Sims stuck with goalie Charlie Effinger, but right after giving up the last goal, on a long wrist shot, he stopped a 2-on-0 rush.
The Komets have won five straight games, though, so they are entitled an off night, I think.
