The Flyers clinch the top spot in the standings with this convincing W! Captain Trevor Wrobel goes twine twice. Singles for “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio, Rob Montgomery, Scott Kostesich and sub Robillard. Marty Papesh, Steve Lemieux and Nick Piccolo with the Bruins markers. No stranger to the penalty box, Bruins sub Brendan Brosnan with a solo roughing minor penalty. Brendan likes to tell the story that his wife used to come to all of his hockey games and then they changed the rules and he couldn’t throw down anymore – she stopped coming!
