FLINT, Mich. -- Late in the second period, the Komets trail the Flint Generals 4-0.
The real excitement in this period came when John DiPace sent Fort Wayne's Brent Henley into the boards. Henley responded by cross-checking him from behind, into the ice, then sucker-punching him. Later, after DiPace said something to him, Henley threw more punches. Amazingly, Henley got two minor penalties for roughing -- about one misconduct and one minor less than he deserved -- and DiPace got a minor for boarding. I don't mean to discount the boarding, but Henley really got away with some stuff there.
On the ensuing power play, Jason Cirone scored.
