Off an assist from Scott Fleming made the score 3-3 early in the third.
Andrey Makarov starts in goal; Kaleigh Schrock and Matt Carter sitting out with unspecified injuries. Matthew Miaone makes his Komets' debut wearing No. 14. Jeremy Gates is also not out for warm-ups, but I haven't heard an official reason why.

Former U.S. Olympic gold medal winner and four-time Stanley Cup champion Ken Morrow is also in the building. Has anybody ever had a better start to a pro career?
Komets have to win these two games or essentially they concede the division to the Wings who are redhot and back in the chase for the conference title.
Jordon Southorn has been activated and Jeremy Gates placed on reserve. All 20 healthy players made the trip. Ben Meisner expected to start in goal.
