The Komets scored a bunch in Friday's 7-4 win, but everyone in Charleston should have known Saturday's game would be much tighter.
``We have to start playing simple, nuts and bolts hockey the rest of the way,'' Graham said ``This was not good enough for us. Three of four points is not good enough. We should have had better.''
After first-period goals from Jace Coyle and Darren Clarke, the Komets led 2-1 going into the third period, but Peter Boyd scored the second of his three goals 34 seconds in to tie the game. Then he scored again 34 seconds into overtime to give the Stingrays the win.
The point the Komets earned helped them tie idle Wheeling for seventh place in the ECHL's Eastern Conference standings. It also keeps them one point up on Florida which beat Cincinnati. Wheeling hosts Elmira today while Fort Wayne and Florida are idle.
The Komets come home to finish the regular season by playing five of their last six games at home.
