After Referee Don Jablonski dropped the opening face-off Saturday night, the Fort Wayne Komets were whipped within 2:30.
The Komets gave up a pair of goals that quickly and never had a chance as they ended their three-game trip to Loveland, Colo., with a 6-1 beating from the Colorado Eagles. The Eagles scored the game's first five goals during the first 24:41 of play as chased the Komets off the ice.
With assists from Brandon Marino and Eric Giosa, Thomas Beauregard scored for Fort Wayne with less than a minute to go in the second period to avoid the shutout. The Komets were out-shot 30-14, attempting only three shots in the first period and five through the first 30 minutes of play. Kaleigh Schrock led the Komets with three shots on goal.
Cody Sol scored twice for the Eagles, and Joey Sides, Dylan Hood, Steve Haddon and Michael Forney scored single goals against Fort Wayne netminder Charlie Effinger.
There were three fights in the game as the Komets were called for 45 minutes in penalties and the Eagles 35.
The Komets are off until Tuesday when they travel to face ECHL North Division leader Cincinnati.
