The Komets and Reading Royals are tied at 1 after one period in Reading, Penn.
Fort Wayne's Ryan Lasch scored on a wraparound in the first period, which was followed shortly thereafter by a fight between Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock and Bryant Molle, who won a championship with the Komets last season.
Reading tied it after it won a battle along the boards in the Fort Wayne zone, hanging goalie Kenny Reiter out to dry.
These are two very hot teams. Reading has won 8 of 10. Fort Wayne has won 4 of 6.
