FLYERS 4 SHARKS 2
Down 2-1 entering the final period, the visiting Flyers rattle off three goals for the W. Lenny Gerbino, Mike Nalepa and subs John Cornish and Hastings score for the Flyers. Goaler Billy Schaugg was outstanding in nets. “Midtown” Mikey Brown and Dr. Nate McCoughtry with first period goals for the Sharks.
HABS 7 BRUINS 1
When the Habs score seven goals and Bryan Prentice does not get a single goal – that’s a good thing for the Frenchmen! Al Pyc with the natural tour du chapeau in period one for the Habs. Winger Mike T. Brown with the deuce. Singles for Steve Bittner and Jack Prioux. Dougie Roehl with three helpers. Goaler Dar with a very light workload only allowing Bruins sub Kyle Lybecker to find the back of the net.
HAWKS 5 WINGS 4
A very entertaining contest, as Hawks forward Joey Reiss goes top shelf with just over two minutes left in the contest for the game winner. Brian Reath with a two goal game. Rob “Rickie” Middleton and Ward Peterson with singles. Brian Moore scores twice for the Wings. Singles for “Angry” Joey Ventimiglia and Steve Wink.
BRUINS 6 SHARKS 5
Winless in their last six games, the reeling Sharks did their best to relinquish the top spot in the standings. Slick center John McNeilly with the trick for the Bruins. Mike “King of the Road” Miller, Rex Baker and sub Kyle Lybecker also with goals. Jeff Ivory with the deuce for the Sharks. Singles for Nate McCoughtry, Brian Barr and Donnie Rivera as the Sharks net two power play goals.
HAWKS 7 HABS 1
When the Habs are good they are good. When the Habs are bad – well just check out the score! The Hawks juggle their lines and put Mr. Joey Reiss(4 & 2) with Captain John “Shifty” Shelton(1 & 4) and Ward Peterson(2 Helpers) . After totaling 13 points in the game – I would say it worked! Brian Reath and Steve Lemieux also with Hawks goals. Jack Prioux with the lone French marker in this penalty free game.
WINGS 5 FLYERS 3
Center Brian Moore with the trick for the Wings. “Downtown” Jimmy Brown and Grand Rapids call up Steve Bayagich with singles. Joey Ventimiglia with the hat trick assist.
