HABS 6 FLYERS 3
Brian Moore with the tour du chapeau for the Frenchmen in this hotly contested game. Singles for subs Trevor Thompson and Scott Bozyk and Mike T. Brown. Mike Nalepa(2) and Lloyd Rogers score for the Flyers. This was an extremely inept performance by the officials in this game. Two Flyers goals were taken away by early whistles. The game was always on the verge of a major incident due to the ineffectual officials. One of the officials was swapped out in game two for a different one. The Flyers were elated! Flyers defenseman Pierre Dugas(A 10 minute Fighting Major) and irritant Mike T. Brown(Roughing Minor) were both ejected from the game.
HABS 4 HAWKS 3

Brown and subs Scott Bozyk and “Diamond” Dave Vorhes also with Habs markers. Dr. Nate with another two goal game. Buddy Scott Chodun with a single for the Hawks. What happened to the Hawks in the playoffs, who squandered a two point lead as regular season champions?

FLYERS 3 BRUINS 3
Benny Hudson ties the game up on a neat deflection for the Bruins. Craig Bastuba and John McNeilly also with Bruins markers.
