About last week – The Komets traveled to Cincinnati for the first time since December 16 and escaped with a 5-4 shootout win. The Cyclones notched two goals in the first period. They added another in the second to take the commanding 3-0 lead until Matt Alvaro scored his seventh goal of the season at 16:38 of the second period to start the Komets’ rally. In the third, Sam Dove McFalls scored on a power play 44 seconds into the period, followed by a Drake Rymsha tally at 1:11 to tie the game at three. With the Cyclones enjoying a five-on-three power play, Zach Andrusiak scored his 18th of the season to return the lead to Cincinnati. However, it would be short-lived. Shawn Boudrias connected on a pass from Dove-McFalls for a power-play goal at 9:04 to tie the game and eventually send it to overtime. Neither team scored in seven minutes of extra time, so the game was decided via shootout. Veteran Stefano Giliati scored the only goal, while Komet goaltender Ryan Fanti stopped three Cincinnati shooters giving his team the win. The Komets were outshot 39-29.

GAME SHEET

On Saturday, the Cyclones got their revenge in the rematch by besting the Komets 7-5. After another slow start that saw the Komets fall behind 4-0 after the first period, the Komets got on the board when rookie Tristian Pelletier scored at 6:53 of the second period, followed by Mark Rassell’s power-play goal at 17:54. Cincinnati added another in the second to make it a 5-2 game after two periods. In the third, Matt Alvaro scored a power-play goal at 2:54 to have it erased 11 seconds later when former Komet Justin Vaive beat goaltender Ryan Fanti to give the visitors a three-goal lead. The Komets crawled closer with another power-play goal from Adam Brubacher and an even-strength goal from Sam Dove-McFalls to pull within in one. With Cincinnati’s Louis Caporusso in the penalty box, the Komets pulled Fanti for an extra skater but failed to tie the game when Patrick Polino scored in the empty net to end the scoring. Fanti finished with 26 saves. The Komets went three of seven on the power play, while outshooting the Cyclones 42 to 33.
