Controversy brings us OT

It doesn't happen often, but I'm speechless.


The Missouri Mavericks got a penalty shot with 19 seconds remaining in regulation time and Ed McGrane scored. So we're going to overtime tied at 2 at Memorial Coliseum.

The penalty shot was awarded by the most hated referee in, perhaps, Fort Wayne history, Zac Blazic, who ruled Brent Henley knocked the net off the moorings intentionally.

Komets officials say John-Scott Dickson of Missouri pushed the net off. My video looks like Henley got shoved into the net. Whichever, there is no way you can rule it was done intentionally.
