KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Playing their third game in as many days, in as many cities, the Komets had their work cut out for them trailing by two goals early in the second period. But the Komets' top-rated power-play unit struck back. Mathieu Curadeau and Luciano Aquino both scored with the man-advantage and it's tied at 2 after two periods at Wings Stadium.
I continue to be impressed with the Komets' energy, considering the recent schedule. And even though this is closer than the typical game with the Wings, the Kalamazoo goals came off a knuckling shot from Dan Carney, during which Fort Wayne goalie Nick Boucher was screened, and during a 5-on-3 power play that saw Kory Karlander score.
In other words, the Komets still look like the better team, and they've outshot the Wings 30-22 so far. It should be a good third period.
