Goalies? What goalies? They will not be named in this contest! The Wings win their first game of the season in grand fashion, as they take their season long frustration’s out on the Hawks! Mr. Mike Nalepa with a huge four goal game! Rob Rowling with a two goal game and three helpers. Singles for Eddie Sudzina and Steve “Mario” Lemieux.

BRUINS 4 HABS 2
The Bruins rebound from a 2-0 deficit to bury four final period goals! Taking full advantage of playing with just nine players today – stud defenseman Brian Reath rarely left the ice and was totally dominate and the deciding factor in this game, with a goal and two assists. Center John Cornish(2) “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio also with markers. Goal-keep Rodney Heid with a stellar game in nets! Bryan Prentice and Al Pyc score for the Habs. Long time veterans Kenny Schaeffler and Curt Lesnau were reminiscing in the locker room following the game. Curt goes: “I betcha – you and I are the only guys in this league that have skated at both Fraser Hockeyland and the St. Clair Shores arena when each venue only had one rink!” Their might be a couple of other guys. But I doubt it!
WINGS 5 FLYERS 2
What’s going on here? Two season firsts happened today! The Wings win their first two games of the season and the Flyers drop their first doubleheader of the season! Power winger Rob Rowling with the deuce for the Wings. Singles for Steve Lemieux, Eddie Sudzina and Mike Nalepa. Goaltender Scott French stood tall in the nets! Mike “King of the Road” Miller and Billy “The Dark” Knight tally for the Flyers – who drop out of first place today. Flyers defenseman Pat “The Beast” Wosek picks up a holding penalty and then vehemently disagrees with the referee’s decision and racks up a ten minute misconduct penalty!
HABS 3 HAWKS 1
Its really hard to figure out how these first place Frenchmen are doing it? Four to five subs a week. They just keep grinding out wins! A hockey rarity happened in this game as Habs center Bryan Prentice scores two shorthanded breakaway goals on the same shift! That was the back breaker for the Hawks. Al Pyc with the Habs final insurance goal. Habs net-minder Dar returned from his two week surgical sabbatical and played an outstanding game between the pipes! Donnie Rivera with the lone Hawks marker on a nifty pass from “Scowling” Scott Leslie.
SHARKS 2 BRUINS 2
“Downtown” Jimmy Brown scores his second goal of the game with the goalie pulled and ties the game up for the Fish! Right wingers Craig Bastuba and Joey Ventimiglio dent the twine for the Bruins. Both puck stoppers – Billy Schaugg and Rodney Heid put on a goaltending clinic for the two people in attendance, in this penalty free game!
