Update: The Komets expect defenseman Jace Coyle and goaltender Andrey Makarov to return to the lineup. Coyle is coming back from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League and Makarov from a concussion. Elmira won 5-3 on Jan. 17 in Fort Wayne to open a series of five times over the next six games when the teams will meet. The Komets are 7-6-6 at home and 8-7-2 on the road. The Jackals have won all three games against the Komets so far this season. The Jackals have the ECHL's second-weakest offense at 2.44 goals per game and fourth-worst defense, giving up 3.33 goals per game. The Komets score 2.86 and give up 3.19 per game. The Komets' Brandon Marino continues to lead all ECHL scorers with 43 points, and Scott Fleming is second among rookies with 31.

Coach Gary Graham: "Friday night's game was one of those things where we just got away from the things that have made us successful. Watching the video, we had breakdowns like I hadn't seen us have in a long time. Just dumb things over and over again. We have to get back to the details and understand what we're doing and why we're doing it. As soon as somebody thinks they can do it differently, that's when the breakdowns happen.

"I do like this team. I was disappointed with Friday, but I told my captains, we can't dwell on Friday night and forget that we've been playing some good hockey. We can't let one minor setback affect the good things we've been doing.''
