K-WINGS BATTLE KOMETS, FALL AT HOME

Kalamazoo drops first game of weekend, heads to Toledo before returning for Indy on Sunday at home.

BOX SCORE

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings (18-17-2-0), proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, brought the intensity throughout but fell to the Fort Wayne Komets (21-16-1-3) at Wings Event Center on Friday, 5-2.

Collin Adams (8) responded to Fort Wayne’s opening goal at the 5:21 mark with a tip-in from the slot just 1:11 after the Komets took the lead.

Adams’ deflection came on a double-doinked puck that caught Luke Morgan (2) and Adams on its way to the bottom right corner. Chad Nychuk (7) also picked up a helper with the original shot from the left point.

Cody Milan (1) put Kalamazoo ahead at the 2:43 mark of the second with a backhand finish just left of the crease on the rush. Evan Dougherty (3) and Ayden MacDonald (6) assisted Milan’s first goal as a K-Wing after forcing a neutral zone turnover. 

Fort Wayne tied the game 2-2 at the 5:51 mark.

The Komets took a 3-2 lead at the 5:12 mark of the third, added another at 9:57 and finished with an empty-net goal at 18:13.

Goaltender Jonathan Lemieux (13-12-1-0) made 24 saves in the loss. 

The K-Wings finished the game scoreless on the power play and 1-for-1 on the penalty kill. Kalamazoo took the final shot total, 27-25.

The K-Wings are back in action Saturday at 7:15 p.m. EST against the Toledo Walleye (24-8-2-3) at Huntington Center.
