"There are a lot of guys in there that are giving a lot right now," said coach Gary Graham, whose Komets are 11-11-5 in his first season. "The last couple of nights, we've been going with eight (defensemen) and eight forwards in the lineup. There are a lot of guys that are doing good things for this team.
"But at the end of the day, it's about putting up wins. … Everybody has to reflect on this day off (Monday) about what they can do to help this team push forward."
Much of it is about a lack of offense.
"We only scored two goals, even though we had (so many) chances, and we just can't bury them," said Brandon Marino, whose Komets came into the day ranked ninth among the ECHL's 22 teams with 3.00 goals per game. "Some games, you're going to have those (nights where it's hard to score), but it's too much, too often right now. We've got to find a way to put the puck in the back of the net when we have our chances."
Gwinnett's offense was ranked 21st with 2.41 per game.
"We're losing games right now. We can't keep getting two or three games above .500 and then losing two or three and getting right back where we started," Marino said. "Being .500 doesn't make the playoffs."
