The Komets have won six of their last seven games, heading into the 7:30 p.m. match with the Quad City Mallards. The Komets are 11-6-2 overall. The Mallards, who are 8-11-1, have lost three of their last five games.
Quad City's Willie Raskob is a player to keep an eye on; he leads rookie defensemen with 14 assists.

Fort Wayne's Shawn Szydlowski is on a seven-game point scoring streak, during which he's totaled five goals and 12 points.
