Tailing the Komets

Kalamazoo has a new back-up goalie

Joel Martin will start but Fort Wayne's Larkin Saalfrank is backing him up. Scott Munroe is ill so Larkin is spending the weekend with the Wings. 


Mitch Heard has been called up

To Lake Erie. Good for him.


Don't forget

The Komets have three key promotions coming up within the next week. Friday is the second-annual Teddy Bear Toss night as fans are invited to bring new or gently used stuffed animals to the game for the big toss and celebration after the Komets' first goal. All stuffed animals collected will benefit the Disorderly Bear Den of Good Bears of the World.

Charity hockey game

The Fort Wayne Freeze, the Fort Wayne Police Department’s hockey team, will play their first home game in two years this Saturday, November 22, 2014 against the Cincinnati Firefighter Hockey Club. The game will take place at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum at 3 P.M. in the arena.

The purpose of this game is to raise money for Fort Wayne Freeze player Christopher Holt’s son Chase, who was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) in 2013.

Holy Toledo, Walleye bomb Komets again

Rout is on

Kyle Bonis scored Toledo's fifth goal on a power play, walking in on Pat Nagle before going top shelf.

Now it's 6-3 Walleye. Nagle usually made the first save today but nobody helped him out. 

4-3 heading into the third

Mike Embach was unable to beat Jeff Lerg five-hole on this breakaway.

Man, Toledo blocks a lot of shots. Komets need to do more of that, too. 

Luciani has two goals on two shots. 

Heading into second period

Good morning from Toledo

Pat Nagle for the Komets and Jeff Lerg for the Walleye are starting in goal.

The Komets called up Eric Levine to back up Nagle, and on his way to get his physical yesterday, he got T-boned and totaled his car. Luckily, he didn't suffer a scratch on himself. 

Matt Krug is playing today and Will Lacasse is the only Komets' scratch. James Martin is wearing an A to replace Matt Pistilli who got called up to Norfolk. 

Be fascinating today to see what kind of defensive game the Komets try to play. Toledo is every bit as fast as Fort Wayne.
