Don't look now, but the Komets are on a 4-0-3 run, after their 4-2 victory tonight against the Kalamazoo Wings.
"(Coach) Gary Graham came into the locker room and he thinks we're trying to give him a heart attack with all the third-period comebacks we've allowed," said forward Shawn Szydlowski, whose team has been outscored 44-32 in the third period but has outscored opponents 65-55 in the first and second, combined.
Szydlowski had a goal. Chris Auger had two. And Brandon Marino had one.

As for why Ben Meisner was tossed from the game late, it was for shooting the puck into the stands after allowing the second Eric Kattelus goal. (Not for throwing a helmet, as was announced at the Coliseum.)
The rule was correctly enforced. Click here and see rule 53.4.
"I was thinking, 'We better win or else I'm going to feel horrible,'" Meisner said.
I'm going to have a great story on him later in the week, so I don't want to give it away now, but I must admit he's impressing me. He didn't look very good when he joined the Komets, but he's a battler.
With Utah this season, he was 2-8-0 with a 2.65 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage. With the Komets, he's 2-1-1 with a 2.26 GAA and a .931 save percentage.
As for Andrey Makarov, the Komets think there's a chance this week that he comes back from his head injury, but they're not going to rush him with the all-star break coming up.
