Jackals Fall in Fort Wayne, 4-1

April 3, 2015 - ECHL (ECHL) - Elmira Jackals News Release

FORT WAYNE, IN - The Elmira Jackals battled valiantly tonight against the Fort Wayne Komets, but could not overcome the Komets' quick start and fell 4-1. With the Jackals' loss in regulation and the Orlando Solar Bears earning a point tonight, Elmira has been eliminated from playoff contention.

The Komets opened the scoring at 3:15 of the first period with Eric Faille's 25th goal of the season. Faille's marker was assisted by Drew Daniels and Mike Embach. Each team fired seven shots on goal in the opening stanza, but Faille's tally was the lone goal in the period.

In the second frame, the Komets capitalized 3:31 into the period and doubled their lead with James Martin's eighth goal of the season. Martin's marker was assisted by C.J. Severyn and Matt Krug. Just two minutes and one second later Shawn Szydlowski scored his team-leading 38th goal of the season to put Fort Wayne up 3-0. C.J. Severyn and James Martin earned the helpers on Szydlowski's goal. Through 40 minutes of action, there were just two minor penalties called and both of them were against the Komets.

In the third period, the Jackals attempted to mount a comeback and generate offensive opportunities, but the Komets' captain, Kaleigh Schrock, capitalized on a rush down the left wing side and buried a backhand shot over Travis Fullerton's shoulder to increase Fort Wayne's lead to four at 6:09 of the third period. Brett Perlini added the assist on Schrock's fourth goal of the season. One minute later the Jackals got on the scoreboard with Taylor Stefishen's power-play goal. Ryan Rashid and Steven Shamanski assisted Stefishen's 16th goal of the season. Unfortunately, the hole was too deep for the Jackals to climb out of at the end of the night.

Travis Fullerton stopped 16 of 20 shots faced and was handed the loss. Roman Will stopped 21 of 22 shots faced and earned the win. The Jackals went 1-for-4 on the power-play and Fort Wayne went 0-for-2 on the man advantage.
