Also scoring for the Wings was Mike Matczak, as Fort Wayne goalie Cody Reichard stopped 38 of 42 shots.

The Komets (6-7-3) are 1-3-1 in their last five games. Kalamazoo (7-6-1) pulled into a tie with the Komets for third in the North Division.

Kalamazoo was 0 for 6 on the power play. Fort Wayne was 0 for 5.
