The Komets (10-8-4) are two games above .500 for the first time this season, and they have two straight games against the defending-champion Reading Royals (10-9-1).
When last these teams met, Dec. 7 in Pennsylvania, the Komets blew out the Royals 7-2.
So, you could say this is a statement weekend for the Komets, who need to build on what they've started while facing a talented and hungry team.
In net, it'll be Cody Reichard vs. Riley Gill. Interesting because Fort Wayne coach Gary Graham is riding the hot goalie, Reichard, and not the bigger prospect, Andrey Makarov.
