Wheeling finally got here and the preseason game is starting about 70 minutes late, at about 9:10 p.m.. The Nailers, I'm told, had a broken down bus, then got a new one, then left Wheeling, West Virginia, to find they'd left a few players behind, then had to go back and get them.
Don't you love preseason hockey?
Among the Nailers' players is Fort Wayne-native Blake Siebenaler.
Fort Wayne is playing a mix of experience and youth. Among those sitting are A.J. Jenks and Jason Binkley.
