This time the Fort Wayne Komets stayed out of the penalty box and put themselves into the win column.
A night after giving up 12 power-play chances in a 2-1 overtime loss at Arizona, the Komets came back to allow only seven extra-man advantages and beat the Sundogs 2-1 on Saturday night.
``It was a great effort, and we got three of four points on the road,'' Komets coach Al Sims said. ``I don't think we'll see many teams come in here and do that.''
The Komets got a pair of power-play goals in nine chances, the first from Frankie DeAngelis and the second Derek Petrosso. Kaleigh Schrock and P.C. Drouin assisted on each goal.
Nick Boucher was outstanding in the Fort Wayne nets, out-dueling Arizona's Doug Groenestege as each faced 31 shots.
``Our guys played hard and weren't going to be denied,'' Sims said. ``It was good game. Our power play came through for us, and Bouch played tremendous. Both goalies played well.''
Before the game, Sims mixed up his top two lines, putting Leo Thomas between Brandon Narauto and Petrosso, and moving Mathieu Curadeau between P.C. Drouin and Sean O'Connor. The Komets have scored three goals in their first three games.
This was also a strange game because two penalty shots were called for by referee Jon McIsaac. Both shooters missed, one for each team.
