I know they are playing their fourth game in five nights, and therefore tired, but the Komets' offense is bordering on nonexistent.
Through two periods at Memorial Coliseum, they have only 13 shots on goal and are tied at 1 with the Kalamazoo Wings.
Brett Smith has the only Fort Wayne goal, which came on a 3-on-2 rush after a pass from Ryan Lasch. Kalamazoo's goal came from Stefan Schneider, after a lazy play by Fort Wayne to clear the puck behind its own net failed.
There was a fight late in the period, after Joe Charlebois elbowed Lasch. Smith stepped in to fight Charlebois and got an instigating penalty.
