About last week – In South Carolina on Wednesday morning, the Komets and Stingrays skated two scoreless periods. The game was delayed for 15 minutes due to ice conditions before the start of the third. Once the match resumed, Shawn Boudrias ended the stalemate with a goal at 4:53, with the assist given to Mark Rassell. The Komets were unable to hold the lead, as the host Stingrays scored at 12:57. With the game tied heading into the final minutes of the match, Joe Masonius went to the penalty box giving the Stingrays their eighth power play of the game. That led to the eventual game-winning goal at 15:52. South Carolina added an empty net goal to make the final 3-1. Ryan Fanti took the loss making 37 saves.

GAME SHEET

On Friday, the Komets appeared for the first time in Savannah.  In the first, the Ghost Pirates opened the scoring with a tally from Tristian Thompson to take the early lead. While on the power play in the second period, Drake Rymsha put the Komets on the board with his 16th strike of the season to tie the game, but the Ghost Pirates added a late score to give them the lead 2-1 heading into the third.  Savannah’s Brent Pederson gave his club a much-needed insurance goal at 7:12 to make the game 3-1.  The Komets tried to rally when Anthony Petruzzelli scored at 18:27, but fell short by a final score of 3-2. The Komets outshot Savannah 49-23, as Ryan Fanti was tagged with the loss, making 20 saves.

The Komets finished their four-game road trip with a 6-4 loss to Atlanta on Sunday.  The Gladiators Mike Pelech notched his 10th of the season on a power play to get the scoring started in the first period. Garrett Van Wyhe tied the game with a score at 9:18, with assists from Tristian Pelletier and Drake Rymsha. Atlanta’s Billy Constantinou scored at 11:31 to give the Gladiators the lead after one period.  In the second, the Komets struck back with two markers from Matt Alvaro and Shawn Boudrias to give the Komets the lead.
