  • Recap, video from K's victory
      Komets captain Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock has scored twice, after netting only five goals all of last season.

Play of the season? Maybe

The Komets' Brett Smith had what might be the best play of the season so far. He banked the puck off the boards, went around a Toledo defenseman, got the puck back, then circled the net before sending a pass to the blue line for Scott Kishel to score his first professional goal.

It tied this game at Memorial Coliseum at 2, and that's where we stand at the first intermission.

The other Fort Wayne goal came from Jean-Michel Rizk, on a breakaway, after a loooong pass from Brent Henley.
