WEEK ONE – PLAYOFFS
SHARKS 5 HABS 2
Both teams with a two point head start into the playoffs. The Billy Mac Jr. led Sharks defeat the Habs behind the hat trick effort’s of Billy Mac Jr. “Scowling” Scott Leslie and “Smiling” Kyle Lybecker with singles. James “I Feel Good” Brown with the hat trick assist. Habs captain Bryan Prentice with the deuce. Lloyd Rogers of the Sharks picks up a solo roughing minor penalty.
WINGS 4 FLYERS 2
Wings jump out to a 4-0 first period lead and soundly defeat the Flyers. Deuces wild for Mike “King of the Road” Miller and sub Stacey. Rob Rowling and Pat Wosek tally for the Flyers.
BRUINS 5 HAWKS 2
Bakers Bruins jump out to a 4-0 first period lead with the second line scoring their first three goals! Second line line-mates Joey Reiss(Also 3 Helpers) and sub Paul “Stork” Erikson with two goal games. Mike “Padre” Nalepa also with a goal. Steve “Mario” Lemieux and sub Scott Davenport tally for the Hawks in this penalty free game.
SHARKS 2 FLYERS 0
Prior to this season, Curt’s Corner preview had the Sharks low on the totem pole due to goal deficiency. This incorrect prediction has been the impetus to this very successful Sharks season! “Downtown” Jimmy Brown and sub Chris Isola do the honors for the Fish. Puck stopper Greg “Bruce” Sutter with the whitewash. On the other hand – Curt’s Corner Flyers preview hit the nail on the head. Nice individual talent – but definitely not enough pucks to go around on this Flyers squad! Flyers defenseman Pat ‘The Beast” Wosek had a “Coming to Jesus/Out of Mind Experience” as he picks up a four minute penalty for abuse of officials and unsportsmanlike conduct.
WINGS 3 HAWKS 2
Down 2-1 – the Wings score twice in the games last seven minutes to steal one from the Hawks! Wings center Brian Moore played an outstanding game as he was all over the ice and produced all three Wings goals for the trick! The Hawks Al Pyc scores on a penalty shot as he gingerly made his way down the ice and went short side low for the goal! Moved to forward – John “Shifty” Shelton with a breakaway goal.
BRUINS 4 HABS 3
As in game one – the Bruins score four times in the initial stanza! Power forward Mike Nalepa with the trick! Joey Reiss was outstanding on face-offs today and pitched in with a single. Another two goal game for Habs center Bryan Prentice. Line-mate Larry “School Boy” Rowe with a goal. Habs defenseman Mike Krueger(Roughing) and Bruins center John McNeilly(Cross Checking) agree to disagree. Four minutes later, McNeilly again fails to make friends, as he and Pierre Dugas incur roughing minor penalties and spew some very colorful obscenities.
