It will be interesting see if BR live discloses what exactly the technical problems were that caused the service interruption more Here

Wings suffered another slow start and trailed 4-0 after one quarter and never recovered. Matt Rambo got the Wings on the board 57 seconds into the second quarter, only to see the Bandits score the next two goals. Doug Buchan was pulled after 23:00 minutes of play and replaced by  David DiRuscio. Wings tied the game at 10-10 in the fourth quarter,  only to watch the Bandits go on a four goal run to keep the Wings winless.

Dhane Smith had two goals and six assists to lead the Bandits. Matt Vinc made 49 saves.  Kevin Crowley had three goals and two assists to lead the Wings.

Anyone seen number two overall pick Chris Cloutier?

The Wings sit at 0-5 and halfway to the 1996 Charlotte Cobras record of 0-10.
