Komets push Walleye to brink

Fort Wayne, IN-- The Komets pushed the Toledo Walleye to the brink with a 4-1 victory Saturday night at the Huntington Center in downtown Toledo, stunning a T-town crowd of 7,494 and taking a 3-2 lead in the ECHL Central Division best-of-seven finals series. The Komets are now one win away from eliminating the Walleye and advancing to the Western Conference Finals against the defending Kelly Cup Champion Colorado Eagles.

The Komets opened the night at 4:18 of the first period with two goals in a span of 2:13 by Garrett Thompson and Gabriel Desjardins for a 2-0 edge going into the first intermission.

Justin MacDonald gave the Komets a 3-0 bulge at 7:12 of the second frame before Toledo finally solved Fort Wayne goaltender Michael Houser with Dylan Sadowy's third goal of the playoffs at 16:42.

Bobby Shea scored the only tally of the third stanza at 2:56 and sealed the win for Fort Wayne 4-1.

Houser made 35 saves for his seventh post-season victory while Toledo goaltender Pat Nagle suffered his third playoff loss allowing four goals on 29 shots.
