The Komets lost 5-1 to Kalamazoo on Friday at Memorial Coliseum. Here are five keys to the loss:

1. Poor start

The Komets trailed 1-0 after the first eight minutes and were getting outshot 5-2.

2. Poor goaltending

Starter Marco Cousineau gave up three goals on the first seven shots against him.

3. Poor special teams

The Komets were held scoreless in four power-play chances and have scored only four times in their last 51 chances.

4. Rough night defensively

The Wings scored five goals despite getting outshot 36-27

5. Lack of energy

There was no energy on the ice or in the crowd as the Komets fell to 4-8 in their last 12 home games.
