HABS 6 HAWKS 5
Hawks sub Chris Ballach scores his first of two goals 20 ticks into the game, but the resilient Frenchmen prevail. Deuces wild for Rob Rowling and Charlie Eslinger. John Crisi and Marty Papesh with singles. Robbie Olmstead, Joe Robillard and sub “Black” Jack Priaux also tally for the Hawks in this penalty free game.
BRUINS 3 SHARKS 2
The story of this game is pretty simple – goalie “Smoking” Joe Polizzi!! Standing on his proverbial head, Polizzi made no less than 50 saves! Great game Joe! Game tied 2-2. Gingerly skating down the right wing – the Pride of St. Norbert’s College in Wisconsin “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio, buries the game winner with just 40 seconds remaining in the game! “Big time players step up in big times” “Angry” said postgame!
FLYERS 4 WINGS 4
The Flyers play a great game and end the Wings winning streak! Vegas Knights coach lookalike Bruce Cassidy(See Picture Below) sub Ken Debus goes twine twice for the Flyers. Mike Garlick and Rich Artymovich with singles. Wings – Scott Chodun, Dougie Roehl, Rob Montgomery and Zach Wagner.
FLYERS 4 BRUINS 4
Another identical 4-4 tie for the Flyers! Bruins forward Mark Micolo scores the first of his two goals 29 seconds into the contest! Line-mates Billy “The Dark” Knight and “Angry” also score for the men in yellow. Mike Garlick scores twice for the Flyers. Singles for Trevor Wrobel and Billy Mac Jr.
SHARKS 8 HAWKS 5
The Sharks feast on the Hawks this game! The line of Hank Richardson(3 Goals), Mike “Padre” Nalepa(2 & 4) and Nate McNaughtry(1 & 3) total 13 points in the game! Mike Akins and Scott Leslie(EN) also with goals. Trevor Knight and Chris Robillard both score twice for the Hawks. Sub Chris Ballach also with a goal, as the Hawks remain winless in their past two doubleheaders.
HABS 5 WINGS 4
The Habs break out of their mini-slump and sweep on the day! Rob Rowling with another two goal game! Singles for Jim May, Marty Papesh and Charlie Eslinger. Wings – Zach Wagner, Scott Chodun, Steve Bayagich and Dave Rupprecht.
So, postgame I hear Habs Captain Rob Rowling humming a catchy tune in the parking lot. I asked him what the tune was. He said he was just excited for the Taylor Swift concert this weekend he will be attending!
A hypothetical situation.
The Leafs are blatantly offsides, not a delayed offsides and it is not called by the officials.
The Wings take the puck and go down and score.
Can the Leafs request a challenge since the play was definitely offsides?
No – the offsides play is null and void.
Count the goal!
