Sometimes if you don't get to Larry Sterling early, you don't get to him at all. The Komets never got to him at all despite 50 shots on goal on a 5-0 loss Saturday night. Frankie DeAngelis had seven shots, Colin Chaulk and Chris Auger six each and J.M. Rizk and Jamie Milam five each. The Gems scored three power-play goals.
Evansville is also winning 3-0 at Tulsa which means the IceMen will tie the Kmoets for first place.
