About last week – The Komets skated a morning game Tuesday at Cincinnati, coming away with a 4-3 shootout win. After a scoreless first period, the Komets got goals from Drake Rymsha, Benjamin Gagné and Sam Dove-McFalls to take a 3-0 lead in the second. Cincinnati's Patrick Polino scored his third of the season at 15:46 to put the Cyclones on the board to make the game 3-1 heading into the third period. Cincinnati scored the only two goals in the third period to tie the game and send it to overtime. Neither team could produce a game-winning goal in the extra frame, so the contest had to be decided in a shootout. Veteran forward Stefano Giliati scored on the Komets' first attempt. Cyclone netminder Beck Warm stopped Tye Felhaber on the team's second try. After Komet goalie Ryan Fanti stopped two Cincinnati shooters, the game ended when Rymsha potted a goal on the team's third shot. Fanti received credit for his first pro win, making 30 saves.
