Komets repel Eagles 4-2

Fort Wayne, IN-- The Komets doubled-up the Colorado Eagles 4-2 in game 3 of the ECHL Western Conference Finals Wednesday night in Fort Wayne and take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

After a scoreless first period where each team directed 10 shots on goal, Garrett Thompson solved Eagles goaltender Joe Cannata at 9:42 of the second frame for a 1-0 Fort Wayne edge. Colorado's Jake Marto responded with his second marker of the playoffs to send the game into the second intermission tied at 1.

The Komets, on a 5-on-3 advantage at the start of the third, only took 45 seconds to regain the lead at 2-1 with Gabriel Desjardins' eighth of the post-season on the power play. Marco Roy gave the Komets a two-goal cushion at 3:23 with his second goal in two straight games. The Komets enjoyed the two-goal lead until Marto netted his second of the night with nine seconds remaining in the match and Cannata pulled for the extra attacker. Cannata remained on the bench on the ensuing faceoff and before the game could end, Desjardins potted his second of the night into an empty net four seconds later to seal the win and hand Colorado their second straight loss in regulation for the first time since March 7.

Komet goaltender Michael Houser snared his ninth win of the playoffs making 27 saves on 29 shots. Cannata took the loss on 22 saves.
