Fort Wayne's Simon Danis-Pepin fought Stefan Della Rovere midway through the second period. Della Rovere fought Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock on Friday.

After going scoreless on their first four power plays, the Komets got a goal from Scott Fleming with the man-advantage for a 3-0 lead 17:52 into the second period.

The Komets were 1 for 5 on power plays; the Everblades were 0 for 3.
