K’s spin Cyclones with 6 straight goals

After getting dominated early, the Komets scored six unanswered goals Saturday night and defeated the division-leading Cincinnati Cyclones 6-2 in front of 6,995 fans at U.S. Bank Arena.

Mike Embach led the way with two goals, and the onslaught began when Jeremy Gates fought Anthony Luciani 2:14 into the second period.

Andrey Makarov stopped 26 of 28 shots for Fort Wayne (19-14-9), which is on a 4-1-1 surge.

In the first period, the Cyclones tallied 14 of the first 17 shots and got goals from Luciani and Josh Birkholz.

But Fort Wayne was a changed team in the second period and got three goals on their first eight shots. Sy Nutkevitch, Embach and Matt Carter found the net in the first 12:34.

In the third period, Jace Coyle made it 4-2 just 39 seconds in for his third goal in the last two games. And Embach scored 2:08 later. Shawn Szydlowski’s power-play goal at 14:08 of the third period put Fort Wayne up 6-2.

Fort Wayne has scored four goals on its last 40 power plays.

Cincinnati (26-13-2) got 15 saves on 20 shots from Joe Howe before he was pulled in the third period. His replacement, Rob Madore, stopped 7 of 8. Both teams had 28 shots.

The Komets played without forward Chris Auger, who had a minor injury. He was replaced by Dean Ouellet, who made his debut after signing as a free agent Friday.

He had been with the San Francisco Bulls, who ceased operating Monday because of financial problems.
