Fort Wayne, Ind. (WFFT) - The Komets clipped the Kalamazoo Wings Wednesday night at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum 5-1 to maintain the small edge in the ECHL Central Division standings.
Coming in to Wednesday's game, the Komets sat in third place, just two points ahead of the fourth place Wings. With the win, the Komets now sit four points up with six games to go.
The scoring got started early Wednesday night. Josh Elmes fired a slap shot in to the back of the net just a minute and 57 seconds in to the contest.
It'd stay a one nothing contest until the 7:46 mark, when Jake Kamrass sent a wrist shot from the right circle home to make it 2-0. Just a a minute and one second later, Shawn Szydlowski followed suit. The Komets got a breakaway and Szydlowski beat Jake Hildebrand with the backhand to make the score 3-0.
The Wings would sub out Hildebrand after that goal in favor of Ivan Kulbakov, but it wouldn't matter. After a Wings goal cut the lead to two, Ryan Lowney netted his fourth goal of the year to put the Komets up 4-1 after a period.
There would be no more scoring until Justin Hodgman found the back of the net in the third period.
Rookie Alex Dubeau got the win, stopping 22 of 23 shots on net.
