We're an hour or so from the drop of the puck for Game 3 between the Komets and Muskegon, and let me be the first to say it: I was wrong.
I thought this would be a sweep for Fort Wayne. But after two one-goal games, one in overtime, it's 1-1 and the Fury is doing exactly what it needs to to stay in the series: Play positional hockey, get lights-out goaltending and keep the score low.
So it's a battle. And if that weird little tussle between Komet goalie Nick Boucher and defenseman Kevin Bertram in Game 2 is any indication, the very fact it is a battle seems to have put the Huber Trophy champs on edge.
Maybe I'm reading too much into Bertram punching his own goalie in the middle of a tight playoff game. But it sounds like the composure is fraying at the edges a bit.
