KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Nick Wheeler, the defenseman-turned-forward, gave the Komets a 2-1 lead late in the second period at Wings Stadium.

Fort Wayne goalie Jeff Deslauriers has been amazing. He has stopped 24 of 25 shots, getting beaten only during a short-handed 2-on-1 rush by Aaron Clarke.

Four straight goals given up by the Komets have been to a Clarke.
