Taking advantage of a second Indy penalty Fort Wayne’s Brett McKenzie potted his second of the game, deflecting a shot from Brycen Martin. Tripling the lead for the Komets, Stephen Baylis got loose in the slot and fired a wrist shot past a screened Williams.
The Komets put their fourth goal on Indy when Brady Shaw walked out from the sideboards and fired a wrist shot over the shoulder of Charles Williams. Taking a 5-0 lead, Fort Wayne’s Chase Stewart stole the puck from a Fuel defenseman and rifled it past Charles Williams.
Opening the final period on the power play, Spencer Watson fired a wrist shot through the five-hole of Fort Wayne goaltender Patrick Munson.
