Robbie Porter sweeps down the right wing and goes top shelf to break the 2-2 tie late in the game! Chuck Mouraine and on a beautiful solo breakaway effort – Ronnie Meltsner also score for the Wings. Sub goal-keep Billy Papciak with a very solid game in nets. Keith Foucher and sub Pat Collins tally for the Bruins in this penalty free game.

BRUINS 1 HABS 1
Steve Lemieux scores a tying shorthanded goal for the Bruins. Left defenseman sub Ken Debus scores early in the game for the Habs who are now tied for first place with the Flyers. Bruins defenseman Chris Zanke was very cranky this game, as he exits the game with his third penalty with still five minutes left in the game! The winless Bruins are still not out of the championship race as of yet – albeit they are on life support!

Robbie Porter, Ronnie Meltsner and power play specialist Keith Lutz also tally for the Wings. Hawks – Billy Hagen, Eddie Higgins and Mark Smyth.
