“A” LEAGUE WEEKLY UPDATE – DECEMBER 29, 2016
HAPPY NEW YEARS!!
BRUINS 5 HABS 2
The battle of the sub goaltenders, as Bruins sub Brian Miller bests Habs Sting rookie Nadolski. Marty Papesh, Craig Bastuba, John McNeilly, Mike Miller and Jimmy “Jets” Galloway round out the Bruins marksman. Captain Rex Baker with a huge four helper game! Mike T. Brown and sub Dana Boyette tally for the Frenchmen. Mike T. Brown and the Bruins Jeff Curran both exchange pleasantries and incur roughing minor penalties.
SHARKS 6 FLYERS 3
Jeff Ivory scores a minute into the game. Sharks sub Chodin scores a minute later. “Midtown” Mikey Brown scores a minute after Chodin’s goal. That was too much for the Flyers too overcome. Scott Leslie and a two goal game from sub “Jack – Sgt. Friday” Webb complete the Sharks scoring. Just like last week – “Midtown” Mikey Brown with another three assist game! As my three year old grandson would say: “Whats going on here?” Kenny Schaeffler, Mike Nalepa and sub Billy “The Kid” Szkodzinski score for the Flyers. “The Kid” returns from a hand injury suffered from chasing his dog Jofa up the stairs! Again – I can’t make this stuff up!
WINGS 3 HAWKS 3
As the score indicates – an even game. John “Shifty” Shelton, Joey Reiss and returning from Florida for the Holidays – sub Howard Smith dent the twine for the Hawks. Brian Moore and Paul Elsey’s young son Keith, subbing for “Downtown” Jimmy Brown who is in Florida for the Holiday’s, tally for the Wings.
SHARKS 5 BRUINS 4
“This is the City – Troy Michigan – The names have been changed too protect the innocent!” Dragnet’s “Jack” Webb with a two goal game for the Sharks. Mikey Brown also with a deuce. Jeff Ivory with a single. The Bruins suffer their first loss in a while, as the line of John McNeilly(2& 1), Eddie Sudzina(1 &2) and Mike “King of the Road” Miller(1 & 3) factor in all of their teams scoring for a 10 point output game!
HAWKS 3 HABS 2
Steve “Mario” Lemieux scores his first of two goals 48 ticks into the game, as the Hawks send the Habs to a double dip loss today. Ward Peterson with the Hawks middle marker. Al Pyc and sub Kyle Lybecker score for the Frenchmen in this penalty free game.
WINGS 3 FLYERS 2
The top spot Wings and sub puck stopper Mark Luscki play a very solid game and send the Flyers to a doubleheader loss today. “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio and subs Mike Folster and the legendary Dave Lacross score for the Wings. Subs John Cornish and “Vin” Scully with Flyers markers in this penalty free contest.
Since it is the holiday season.
