Thought coach Al Sims getting tossed from Game 1 was weird? How about this?
After Muskegon scored, to trim the Komets' lead to 3-2, Fort Wayne goaltender Nick Boucher and defenseman Kevin Bertram came to blows for a couple of seconds in the second peroid. I don't have the benefit of replay and don't know exactly what happened, but I'm guessing Boucher was peeved he was screened on the goal and it blossomed from there. Anyway, strange to see linesmen separating teammates.
Fort Wayne has goals from Mitch Woods and David Hukalo, who stole the puck from Jeff Nelson and scored on a breakaway, in this period.
