K's gone sour

Late in the second period at Memorial Coliseum, the Komets trail the Wheeling Nailers 4-2.

I don't know what to say, other than this: A lot of these players could be in trouble.

It was tied at 1 and the Nailers had tallied 17 of the last 21 shots before John Dunbar scored for the Komets from the right circle at 6:43 of the second period.

It took 14 seconds for the Nailers to answer with a Jack MacLellan goal.

At 11:30, Carter Rowney scored off a rebound, and he did it again 15 seconds later.

The crowd seems like its asleep. With the shots 22-14 for the Nailers, can't say I blame it.
