Komets tweak lineup

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

As always, don’t take this as gospel, but the ECHL transactions report lists the following lineup changes for the Komets headed into today's 7:30 p.m. game against the Quad City Mallards: Cody Sol and and Taylor Crunk enter the lineup and Shawn Szydlowski and Tyson Fawcett are out.

I don’t know if Szydlowski or Fawcett are injured, though coach Gary Graham said the team has a bunch of ailments it has been dealing with, and for those of you talking about the defensive lapses in Friday’s 4-2 loss to Adirondack, adding Sol means Fort Wayne will have a spare defenseman.

With Crunk in the lineup, I would look for the Komets to try and play a grittier game and that’s what they need to do. They have totaled six goals over their last three games, all losses.
