David Wright is down after landing awkwardly following an attempted putback. Grabbing right ankle.
Oh good. As if this game wasn't barfworthy enough, refs are going to drag it out with replay reviews.
Pacers were hitting .345 from 3pt line before tonight, even with Rudez going 2-14. But they hit Rudez-like 2-14 in first half vs Mavs.
Mavericks starters: Jae Crowder, Ivan Johnson, Greg Smith, Richard Jefferson, Gal Mekel.
So whose football program is better now? Indiana's or Purdue's?
No Dirk Nowitzki tonight for Dallas. Really will have the look of an exhibition game.
CJ Watson and Stuckey out with sore feet tonight. Scola and Wittington being rested.
Mama I luv ya!!
Crazy weekend for me. Covering Fuel, Pacers and Colts. Keeping an eye on Butler. Nuts, but beats working for a living.
Had not seen hockey in person in nearly two years. Awesome to get back to the rink.
Tough loss for the Fuel, but an entertaining night of hockey. Fans got their money's worth.
Fort Wayne's Paul Crowder scores, but Brisbois matches it. We're 2-2 in shootout. Onto extra round.
ECHL shootouts are five rounds. That's different from NHL, which are only three.
Fort Wayne takes the lead at 11:53 mark as Jones takes a pass from Crowder on a 3-2 and scores from about 20 feet out.
Fort Wayne is known as a minor-league hockey hotbed. Can see why here tonight. Impressive crowd came down.
Game is tied on a really, really bad goal. Fort Wayne fires harmless shot from blue line. Goes off Fuel GK Carruth's glove and in.
Keep it 100, make it seem like they hit the lottery compared to rest of the ninjas
Blackhawks also sent down p.a. announcer Gene Honda for this game. He's really, really good. Also does the White Sox.
Carruth stops Fort Wayne's Szydlowski on a partial breakaway to preserve Fuel's 2-0 lead early in second.
Thank you all for answering my question on the song. Much appreciated.
Can someone tell me the name of the song they play after a Blackhawks goal at the United Center? They're playing it here after Fuel goal.
Guessing they are looking at a replay to see who gets credit for that goal. Still haven't announced.
Noticed that Fuel haven't sold all advertising space on dasher boards. Usually a big source of revenue for minor-league teams.
End of the Fuel's starting lineup's sticks were on fire as it was introduced and took the ice.
Fuel worked in pictures of Gretzky, Messier and Hasek into on ice light collage. Nice. Best pro players to come through here.
One thing I love about hockey: The coolness coming off the ice and the sound of skates cutting into it.
Boos come down as officials take the ice. Happens at every level of hockey.
Fuel ownership group and ECHL commissioner Brian McKenna perform ceremonial dropping of first puck.
Five youth hockey players wearing jerseys of past Indy pro teams plan checkered flag at center ice. Pre-game ceremonies about to begin.
I also have seen jerseys for Avalanche, Wild, Blues and tonight's opponent, the Fort Wayne Komets.
