Fort Wayne, Indiana – The Allen Americans face elimination on Tuesday night after dropping a 4-3 decision to the Fort Wayne Komets on Monday night in Indiana.
Fort Wayne outscored the Americans 4-1 in the first period and then held on for the one-goal victory. Anthony Nellis had a four-point first period with two goals and two assists.
“We had one bad stretch of hockey in the first period that was the difference in the game,” said Americans Captain Spencer Asuchak. “Our team will not go down without a fight. We are not quitters. We will be ready tomorrow night.”
Les Lancaster had another solid night on the ice with a pair of goals, his second and third of the playoffs. He tied Spencer Asuchak and Corey Mackin for second on the team this postseason. Lancaster’s second of the night was a power play goal for Allen. Just their third power play goal of the playoffs.
