Fun on the ice, in press box

The Komets and Flint Generals are tied at 1 after two periods, in what has been an entertaining game.

The Komets' goal came from Guy Dupuis, who scored it from almost center ice, when his bouncing shot fooled goaltender Rob Nolan. Yes, the same Nolan who wasn't expected to be the starter today.

Flint's Pascal Rheaume answered right back with a power-play goal.

The second intermission was even more interesting, as Komets president Michael Franke had a very heated discussion with Brendan Savage of The Flint Journal. I won't divulge the details of what I heard -- all of it -- because it's between them.

But clearly Franke is peeved at Savage's reports that the Komets have money in the Generals, whose players have been buying their own equipment and faced eviction notices, according to The Flint Journal. Savage stood his ground and said he was standing by his sources, as a good reporter should.

The rest, I'll leave to those two men.
