What a game, what a Wednesday night it was for Komets hockey.
On the brink of being down three games to none to the Toledo Walleye, Shawn Szydlowski was there to breathe back life into this postseason.
After a terrific performance from Komets goalie Zach Fucale, 41 saves off 42 shots on the night, the K’s still found themselves down, 1-0, with less than a minute left to play.
Their season saved with 22 seconds left, thanks to Szydlowski’s point blank goal of resuscitation.
That score sent the Komets to overtime, giving defenseman Kevin Gibson the opportunity to be hero.
Gibson, who had scored just two goals all season long, gave the Komets a chance for something more with just one flick of the wrist.
“Momentum’s huge, you know,” Gibson said after game three.
“There’s still a couple more games we’ve got to win.”
To pass Toledo, the Komets (2-1) will need to win three more.
That road to a comeback in this series continues at the Memorial Coliseum, Friday night at 8 p.m.
Fort Wayne’s NBC Sports Reporter Megan Salle will be live Komets Head Coach Gary Graham at 6 p.m. for a preview of the game four matchup.
