Finally some sizzle to this series

INDIANAPOLIS – I used to kind of dread covering the Komets' games at Indiana Farmers Coliseum because, well, they were boring. But there's finally some sizzle to this series.

This season, Fort Wayne may be 5-1-1 against the Fuel, but they're battling for third place in the Central Division and there's clearly a lot of hatred between the teams. This is the rivalry that saw Justin Hodgman injure his hand punching Zach Miskovic. This is the rivalry that saw Radovan Bondra playing, shall we say, very loosely with his stick. Tonight, we'll see what happens if Taylor Crunk and Anthony Collins get out there at the same time.

Anyway, finally, this is a rivalry. I think. I hope.
