FLINT, Mich. -- So much for boring, ugly, defensive hockey.
Late in the first period of Game 3 of the Turner Cup Finals, it's tied at 3.
It has been back and forth, with a lot of exciting goals. The biggest stars so far: Fort Wayne's Matt Syroczynski, who has a hat trick, and Flint's Matt Moffat with a goal and an assist.
Funny thing about this is, Tuesday, our columnist, Ben Smith, asked me who I thought would be Playoff MVP if the series stayed its course. I said that Nick Boucher would be the obvious choice but that Syroczynski deserved some consideration. This is why: In 10 playoff games, he now has nine goals and 12 points, and that ain't bad.
- According to The Flint Journal, potential new owners for the Generals could be in the building tonight -- click here to read -- and they may be from Indiana. I'm not sure if that supports or disproves my guess: Ron Geary, the Louisville, Ken., businessman who owns the Evansville Icemen of the All-American Hockey League. He is supposed to get an IHL team in 2011-12, and I think the IHL might be pushing him to take over the Generals and then move that franchise to Evansville. At first, I thought, why would a person do that? But then, if you think about it, it makes some sense. If he thought he could make any money here., it would give him a year to get the right personnel in place and have them set the foundation for the 2011-12 season. Or, I could be way off.
