Confirmed guess: Geary plus Lewis

FLINT, Mich. -- Gosh, I'm good.

The prospective new ownership group includes Evansville Icemen owner Ron Geary, as well as former Detroit Red Wings coach Dave Lewis.

They're all here tonight.

So is former Dayton Gems owner Richard Bruner, by the way, but he's not involved and some people didn't seem to pleased to see him.

I'm told we'll know a lot in the next week about the future of Flint and the IHL.

I also noticed famed broadcaster Terry Ficorelli giving a business card to a member of the Gems. I wonder if he's looking for a job there. He was with Muskegon this season, of course.

On the ice, it's tied at 4 midway through the second period. Fort Wayne's Justin Chwedoruk broke behind the defense and tucked a shot underneath Rob Nolan to get it to that score early in the frame.
