Fort Wayne, IN – Inconsistent play seems to be plaguing the team so far this year as they follow up a great performance one night and then the next, fall apart.
The first period passed with not much action as Charlie Effinger stopped all 16 shots he faced.
Trenton’s (13-11-4) Marcel Noebels opened the scoring with a power play goal nearly three minutes into the second frame. Fort Wayne native Lincoln Kaleigh Shrock tied it up two minutes later on a Jean-Michel Rizk pass from behind the net. Effinger went to clear the puck 1:06 later, but it was intercepted by the Titans and a goal was scored by Phil DeSimone.
The game wasn’t too far out of reach midway through the frame, but while the Komets (14-12-2) were on the power play, they gave up a short handed goal 13:09 into the second. Trenton finished out the frame with another power play goal 1:28 later.
The Komets power play has been weak to say the least. They came into tonight’s action a league worst in power play efficiency at 13.1%.
The Komets look to turn things around next Thursday as the Toledo Walleyes come to town. Puck drop is at 7:30 PM EST (4:30 PM PST). Audio, given by the legendary Bob Chase, is available through the Komets website.
