Lang scores game-winner to beat Greenville

Sunday, November 17, 2013 12:16 am
Nothing comes easy for the Fort Wayne Komets, even when maybe it should be.The Komets lost another late lead Saturday night but won for the second game in a row during overtime. This time they beat the Greenville Road Warriors 4-3 before 7,872 Memorial Coliseum fans.

Fort Wayne led 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 before Greenville forced overtime on a goal by Sam Klassen with 6:51 remaining in regulation. The Road Warriors out-shot the Komets 21-7 during the third period, but goaltender Andrey Makarov kept Fort Wayne in it.

``That third period, we had to battle a lot of things outside of Greenville,'' said Komets coach Gary Graham who spent a lot of the period yelling at the officials. ``I kept telling the guys to stay positive, It wasn't that we were playing bad. The third period they took it to us because the momentum was shifting in a lot of different ways. Give the guys credit, we found a way to get it done.''



After Makarov made a couple of saves at the other end, defenseman Rob Kwiet shoved the puck deep into the Greenville end where forwards Brandon Marino and Mickey Lang kept poking at it until Lang slid it behind Road Warriors goaltender Connor Knapp for the game-winning goal.

``These are the same games from the start of the season, and now we found a way to win instead of finding a way to lose,'' Marino said.

The win was the Komets' third in a row and improved their record to 5-4-2.
