They scored and the Bears started flying...great promotion by the Wings..

Imagine if they did this in Fort Wayne...

Seems the Komets are dropping like fly's. Hopefully no serious injuries. K's up 3-1! Watching on B2.

Is it just me, or does Berkebile seem to hate Fort Wayne?

Every ref in this league hates Fort Wayne

I think Berkebile has a problem with FW too. I saw him officiate back to back games in Michigan and he was pretty bad. He would only "see" half of the play. Example last night Druin had his stick pushed away from him which is an unsportsmanlike delay of game...but it was called so PC grabbed the guy and threw him down and of course he got called for the hold I think. Bertram got checked while on the ice with his back to Bootland (hmm? checking from Behind?) nope....4 minutes on Bertram and 2 on Bootland. 4 minutes double minor for high sticking very easily could have been a 5 minutes major because there was a decent pile of Komets blood on the ice....bottom line Komets win. Teddy Bear night in FW would be awesome...I turned the idea in two different times through the years and no one has decided to do it...maybe if the fans did it on their own? THink if 400-500 fans could produce 100-120 bears for a road game what could 7-8000 fans do for their own kids? WOW...that is a crazy positive thing. Anyways...I was also impressed with the Teddys in K-zoo...two of the ushers told me that was really classy of us.

Hit Somebody!!!

What about the phantom charging call on Hansen when the K-zoo player skated himself into the boards and Hanson was standing still on the ice 10 feet from him. Puke-a-pile heard the crash into the boards and turned around and called charging on Hansen. Gotta love the "sounds like a penalty" calls.
