Goaltender Scott French was superb in nets. Flyers sub Scott Davenport and “Marine” Steiber with the Flyers goals. Flyers defenseman Pat “The Beast” Wosek was a little surly today, as he incurs a solo unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalty.

SHARKS 8 BRUINS 4
In the lobby prior to today’s game their was a school of Sharks swarming around. This Sharks team were on the receiving end of a few playful condescending jokes regarding their disappointing season. After sweeping today’s game in fine fashion and totaling 16 goals – I would have to say there was a little incentive going on pregame in their locker room! Picking up a player. The Sharks now play with nine and clobber the Bruins! Dominating in both games today – sub Jim Puffer with the deuce. Singles for Billy Mac Jr(Also 4 Helpers), Mike Riddle, Donnie Riviera, Pierre Dugas and with his daughter and friend in attendance – Eddie Sudzina. Net-minder Scott French with a seven save game. Bruins – Craig Bastuba, Rex Baker, Nate McNaughtry and sub Paul Erikson.
HAWKS 3 HABS 3
A very even game as the score indicates. Hawks center Brian Moore with a two goal game. Marty Papesh with the Hawks final goal. Big Rob Rowling with the Habs first two markers and sub Stacey with the game tying goal. Hawks sub goalie John Valenti with an interference minor penalty. Defenseman Lou Suvak and the Habs Lloyd Rogers both pick up separate unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the game.
