The Komets rallied for a power play marker in the third frame when defenseman Guy Dupuis scored his second goal of the season for the only tally of the period.

Komet goalie Kevin Reiter registered his seventh loss in his 13th appearance making 22 saves on 25 shots. Netminder Jeff Harvey earned the win in his first appearance with Evansville stopping 26 shots.
