Komets clipped to start road trip

– If the Komets don’t improve, their trip to Estero, Fla., will be memorable for all the wrong reasons.

In the first of three straight games against the Florida Everblades, the Komets lost 4-1 on Wednesday night in front of 4,602 fans at Germain Arena.

Right wing Christian Ouellet had the lone Fort Wayne goal, after a great pass from Matt Carter, 10:58 into the second period.

But the Everblades had already gotten two goals from defenseman Jordan Henry, who assisted on the A.J. Jenks one-timer goal for a 3-1 lead 6:30 into the third period.

Jenks added an empty-netter to finish the scoring.

Goalie Andrey Makarov stopped 22 of 25 shots, as Fort Wayne (23-16-11) lost in regulation for only the second time in 11 games.

Connor Knapp stopped 29 of 30 shots for Florida (27-17-5), which had won only two of its previous six.

Scott Fleming (ankle) returned to the Komets’ lineup but was minus-3.

The teams play again Friday and Saturday.
