GAME SHEET

On Friday, the Komets returned to Toledo to battle the Walleye. After a scoreless first period, the Walleye blitzed the Komets with four goals in the second period for the only scores of the game. Goaltender Brett Brochu made 40 saves in the 4-0 loss.

GAME SHEET

The Komets returned home on Saturday to take on the Iowa Heartlanders. After giving up an early power-play goal, the Komets and goaltender Tyler Parks blanked the visitors the rest of the way, giving the club a 4-1 win. Matt Wedman scored the Komet's first goal on a power play at 14:47 of the second period. In the second, the Komets got markers from Nolan Volcan, Martin Haš and Ethan Keppen. Parks made 32 saves, gaining his 11th win of the season.

GAME SHEET

On Sunday, the Komets faced the Heartlanders. In the final meeting of the regular season between the two clubs, the Heartlanders survived and gained a 3-2 win. Iowa’s Max Johnson netted the contest’s first two goals. Jack Dugan scored the eighth of the season at 8:01 of the second period to pull the Komets within one after two periods. With Dugan in the box for unsportsmanlike conduct, Iowa’s Jake Durflinger scored the game-winning goal at 9:40 of the third period. Ethan Keppen cut the lead back to down to one at 12:50, but the rally would fall short. Brett Brochu was credited with 19 saves in the loss.
