The Komets are 0-2-0 since trading captain Nick Tuzzolino to Elmira and coming off a 4-0 stinker at Kalamazoo, Mich., on Friday night.
So, yes, I'd say this is an important game for the Komets.
(Don't you hate the scheduling sometimes, though? Florida got to sit in Fort Wayne on an off day, while the Komets had a game on the road.)
The Komets are 6-7-3 in Gary Graham's first season as head coach. The Everblades are 13-4-2.
The Everblades lost Mike Little, a defenseman, who was called up to Norfolk of the American Hockey League.
The referee tonight is Stephen Reneau.
