The Komets endured the resiliency and physical play of the Kalamazoo Wings – some would call it dirty play – and emerged with a 3-2 overtime victory Friday in front of 5,122 fans at Wings Stadium.
During the first weekend of the Komets’ season, forward Matthew Pistilli had two goals, three points and a plus-3 rating in two games.
Amid the franchise-record 12 trades the Komets made during the up-and-down 2013-14 season, a gem was found in the form of forward Mike Embach.
