Anyone who is a fan of hockey would have loved to watch last night's Turner Cup finals Game 7 at Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. Fans who bought tickets almost got two games for the price of one. The Fort Wayne Komets and the Port Huron IceHawks played a triple-overtime barn burner in front of 10,462 fans. Game start time: 7:30 p.m. Game end time:12:20 a.m. Score Komets 3; Port Huron 2.

You can check out all the stories from Blake Sebring and Elbert Starks and photos from Brian Tombaugh, Michelle Linn and me on News-Sentinel.com.
