TOLEDO -- After one period at the Huntington Center, the Komets and Toledo Walleye are tied at 2.
Fort Wayne's goals have come from Matt Syroczynski and Nick Wheeler, but it was former Komets forward Stephon Thorne that tied it on a 2-on-1 rush after he caught Jamie Milam going for a big center-ice check.
The best play of the period came from Komets goaltender Charlie Effinger, who stopped Willie Coetzee on a breakaway.
Fort Wayne leads in shots, 14-12.
This is the best, energy-wise, the Komets have looked in a couple weeks.
