CINCINNATI (WPTA21) — The Komets got a lucky break on a goal that put them up 4-1 in the third period. The luck ran out shortly after that.

Then came Sean Flangan’s goal, a shot that ricocheted off the body of a Cyclones player.
That 4-1 lead held for a while, but Cincinnati got two goals in a 20 second window to make it 4-3 midwaythrough the period.
Brady Vail tied it at the 4:42 mark, and Kurt Gosselin delivered the winning goal with 18 seconds remaining.
