Both puck stoppers – goals against and shutout leader Rodney Heid and Kirk “Captain America” Larson were outstanding in nets!

In the locker room before the game, Habs Captain Bryan Prentice is lamenting how he is not feeling too good and aching all over. All of us should feel that way! Mr Prentice proceeds to score his teams first three goals of the game and cap it off with a fourth first period goal! Not bad for not feeling good – eh? Dr. Nate McCoughtry with the deuce. Singles for Al Pyc and sub Mike Folster. With the Bruins tie in game one – the Frenchmen clinch first place in the standings! Mike Nalepa, Eddie Sudzina and on a solo effort – imagine that – “Midtown” Mikey Brown scores for the Wings. No trips to the sin bin for either squad.

Averaging 6.5 goals allowed a game! Ouch! John Cornish scores his first of two goals 20 ticks into the contest – then the carnage begins! John McNeilly with the trick. Sub Greg Calvin with the deuce. Joey Ventimiglio also with a goal. John Cornish also picks up four helpers. Jeff Funk with a three helper game. An ugly incident occurred as Rex Baker and Ryan Boyette get into an altercation, as Baker round houses Boyette in the head, who has just recently recovered from a concussion. Baker picks up interference and unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalties, to go along with his earlier penalty and a first period exit from the game. Boyette registers unsportsmanlike conduct and roughing minor penalties.
