Things were looking dire, as if the Komets might be pushed down to fourth place in the Central Division.
Then they unleashed five unanswered goals Sunday and cemented a 5-2 victory over the Kalamazoo Wings in front of 6,621 fans at Memorial Coliseum.
The teams entered the day tied for third place but the Wings had won four in a row and the Komets were on a 1-5-1 slide.
The Komets are off until 7:30 p.m. Saturday, when they play host to the Cincinnati Cyclones.
The Komets got two goals from Lynden McCallum and one apiece from Matt Alvaro, Zach Pochiro and Anthony Petruzzelli.
