FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21 Alive) - The line of Chris Auger, Brandon Marino, and Scott Fleming combined for both goals in the Komets' 2-1 win over the Toledo Walleye on Sunday night.

The win, coupled with Florida's 3-2 home loss to South Carolina, restored the Komets' four point margin over the Everblades for the final ECHL Eastern Conference playoff spots.

Fort Wayne has two games to play, Florida has three.

Marino tied the game in the second period with his goal on a backhand, and Auger scored the game winner midway through the third.

Rookie Steven Summerhays, in his first start since being brought in from Notre Dame, allowed a goal 22 seconds into the game, and then stopped the next 18 shots he saw for the win.
