The Komets Legends gave a credible performance but lost 4-1 to the Detroit Red Wings Alumni before an estimated 3,000 fans at Memorial Coliseum. The Red Wings led 1-0 after the first of two periods on a goal by Dan Newman. Detroit came out on a surge to start the second period and led 3-0 on goals by Dennis Hextall and Tom Williams. After Williams scored again to make it 4-0, Dusty Virag finally scored for the Komets.
It was pretty obvious the Red Wings play together regularly, while many of the Komets were playing for the first time in four years.
