KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Late in the first period of an intense game, the Komets and Kalamazoo Wings are tied at 2.
The Wings got goals from Travis Granbois, on a redirection, and Nick Bootland, during a 5-on-3 power play with an open shot from the slot. Fort Wayne's goals came from Luciano Aquino, with a knuckling shot from 15 feet out, and Mathieu Curadeau on a penalty shot.
The penalty shot was well deserved -- although, it took referee Dean Sanborn what seemed like an eternity to call it -- after he was hauled down by Glenn Detulleo. Ironically, the Komets were short-handed at the time because Detulleo was high-sticked by Colin Chaulk.
Komets goalie Nick Boucher looks a bit shaky to me, but he's also not getting any help from his defensemen. And I hate to say it, but the Komets have to whine to the referees more than any team in the league. Seriously, during every stoppage they do it.
If you have any questions during the game, put them in the comments section.
