In my experience, the opening games of playoff series are usually kind of a letdown. They teams always seem to be feeling each other out more than anything. Tonight, though, there's great intensity, if not a great crowd.
I'd say there's about 3,500 fans in the house.
What have they seen? Port Huron goaltender Larry Sterling foil Justin Chwedoruk and Leo Thomas on breakaways, the Komets muster one shot on three power plays, including none during a 5-on-3 advantage, and Matt Syroczynski of Fort Wayne tally the only goal of the first period on a shot from the left circle.
