Komets fail to reel in Walleyes
Justin Cohn | The Journal Gazette
Tyson Spink scored 2:50 into the 4-on-4 overtime, improving the Walleye to 2-0-0 this season against Fort Wayne. The Walleye has outscored Fort Wayne 12-5 in those games, both in Ohio.
Fort Wayne is on a 2-0-1 run.
Down 4-1, the Komets' comeback began with a goal by David Friedmann -- his second of the game -- 12:43 into the second period. Garrett Thompson scored at 19:26.
Goaltender Eric Hartzell stopped 13 of 16 shots for Fort Wayne (11-5-3) before getting replaced 5:54 into the second period by Garrett Bartus, who stopped 18 of 20.
A day after forward Trevor Cheek was called up to Tucson of the American Hockey League, the Komets played with seven defensemen.
