EVANSVILLE, IN – The Fort Wayne Komets shut out the Evansville IceMen 4-0 Thursday in a game riddled with 141 penalty minutes on St. Patrick’s Day at the Ford Center.

Fort Wayne scored the game’s first goal, when Louis Belisle jammed a loose puck behind the left skate of IceMen goalie Scott Greenham midway through the opening period. The Komets outshot Evansville 14-4 in the frame.

The Komets made it 2-0 when Jamie Schaafsma through a puck to the front of the net from behind the cage, and it ricocheted off of the skate of an IceMen defenseman before trickling into the net. Greenham was replaced after the goal by Christoffer Bengtsberg. There were 114 combined penalty minutes and five ejections in the second period due to a melee during a media timeout at 8:01.

Daniel Barczuk deflected in a power play goal to extend Fort Wayne’s lead to 3-0 just 3:37 into the third period. Then Shawn Szydlowski ripped a shot over Bengtsberg’s glove 49 seconds later to complete the scoring. Nagle posted a 25 save shutout, while Greenham took credit for the loss as he stopped 14 of 16 shots. Bengtsberg made 10 saves in relief. The two teams meet twice more at Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne on March 26 and April 3.

The IceMen travel to Toledo Saturday for a 7:15pm EST battle with the Walleye at Huntington Center in the final meeting of the year between the teams. Evansville then wraps up the weekend at home against the Cincinnati Cyclones at 5:15pm Sunday at the Ford Center.
