West Valley City, Utah – The Fort Wayne Komets scored 3 times in the first period and held on to a 3-2 win over the Utah Grizzlies on Wednesday night at Maverik Center in the opener of the 3 game series.

Matt Hoover got Utah on the board as he scored shorthanded on a 2 on 4 play 5:42 into the second. Matthew Boucher got his 27th assist of the year. Earlier on Wednesday Boucher was named to the ECHL all-rookie team, the first Grizzlies skater to be selected since Utah joined the league in the 2005-06 season. Mitch Maxwell scored on the power play 8:03 into the third period as he took the puck away from Fort Wayne goaltender Robbie Beydoun. The Komets withstood a furious Utah rally towards the end to secure the series opening win.
