PORT HURON, Mich. -- A game that began with such promise has turned sour for the Fort Wayne Komets, who trail the Port Huron Icehawks 2-1 after one period in Game 4 of the Turner Cup Finals.
The Komets' Konstantin Shafranov opened the scoring with a wrist shot from 25 feet out and Kevin Reiter was gloving lots of close-range shots. But a power play resulted in a goal for Josh Aspenlind and four-on-four play brought a Jeff Zehr goal on a tricky wrist shot that seemed to catch Reiter by surprise.
That took some life out of the Komets, who trail the series 2-1.
During the intermission, there's a guy wearing a Komets jersey who's acting like he can't skate. First, I wonder if the Icehawks bought the jersey for the act. Second, I wonder if they'll try to return it.
