Tailing the Komets

Komets push streak to eight

The Komets have now won eight games in a row after beating Port Huron 3-1 on Sunday, which also clinches a playoff spot. Their lead over Flint is 27 points with 16 games left in the Fort Wayne schedule. The magic number for clinching the Huber Trophy as IHL regular-season champions is down to nine points.

The Komets got goals from David Hukalo, Evgeny Saidachev and Mitch Woods.

Fort Wayne played without defenseman Sergei Durdin who had a suspension after his knee-to-knee hit with Port Huron's Brett Hughes on Saturday night. Hughes may be done for the season.

The Komets also lost center Mathieu Curadeau in the second period to a groin injury, but they don't know the extent of it yet, according to coach Al Sims.

Fort Wayne has now 18-9-4 away from home and has the best road record in the league.

The Komets also have two days off since they don't play until Friday.
