An amazing thing to watch

The Komets and Kalamazoo Wings didn't have much to play for, but the Wings' 3-2 victory was really exciting. Check out the action in this video.

The dirty hit that took Eric Giosa out of the game is around the 4:00 mark. If Scott Kishel got suspended this season for hitting a guy in a vulnerable position, this is worthy, too.

Jeff Deslauriers, who made 47 saves for Fort Wayne, was stupendous.
