Komets' comeback falls short

The Komets just ran out of time.

Trailing by two goals and with their goaltender pulled, they had a 6-on-3 power play with 1:28 remaining Sunday.

One goal they got, courtesy of defenseman Simon Danis-Pepin, but they never got another good shot on net and lost 3-2 to the Gwinnett Gladiators at Memorial Coliseum.

Also scoring for the Komets was Brandon Marino, who also had a late goal waved off by referee Chris Pitoscia.

Gwinnett got goals from Josh Currie, Brenden Walker, who scored from just inside center ice, and Maxime Legault.

In his debut with the Komets, goaltender Ben Meisner stopped 22 of 25 shots. Brad Phillips stopped 30 of 31 shots for Gwinnett.
