The Hawks Jim Puffer(Slashing) and the Wings Terry Boyette(Unsportsmanlike Conduct) pick up minor penalties and hit the box in tandem.
FLYERS 2 SHARKS 0
With his mask displaying his alter ego – Super Hero Kirk “Captain America” Larson was simply outstanding in this contest as he racks up a well deserved whitewash! Captain America had the Sharks talking to themselves numerous times throughout the game. Mike T. Brown scores on the second shift of the game for the eventual game winner. Right defenseman Pat “The Beast” Wosek adds a first period insurance goal. The Sharks are stuck in a mini-malaise, as they drop their third game in a row.
BRUINS 3 HABS 3
The marquee game of the night, as both teams entered the game tied for first place and remained tied for first place following the game! John McNeilly of the Bruins with another two goal game. His second goal was highly disputed by the Habs, as the whistle was clearly blown prior to McNeilly stuffing the puck into the net. For some inexplicable reason – the goal stood. As in game one – Craig Bastuba scores for the Bruins, as they are now undefeated in their past two doubleheaders. Dr. Nate with another two goal game for the Habs. His final goal was a thing of beauty, as defenseman Dougie Roehl hits Nate with a long stretch pass and Nate goes top shelf for the game tying breakaway goal. Bryan Prentice also with a Habs marker. Habs net-minder Dar stoned Bruins center John McNeilly, as John had at least a full five seconds alone in front of the net! Just him and Dar! Dar won! Habs defenseman Pierre Dugas(Roughing) and Bruins sub Darrin “Mitch” Hotts(Slashing) get into a “How Do You Do” and spend quality time in the box together.
