SHARKS 7 HABS 1
Just like the sound track in the movie Jaws – you can just hear it on the ice with these Sharks clinking on all cylinders, as they continue their playoff feeding frenzy! Deuces wild for Barry Piornack, Ben Haynes and Al “Mike” Phipps. Gary Syzlanski with a goal and three helpers.

Brian Belloli with a two goal game for the Wings. Singles for Gary Enmark, Paulie “Jay” Giles and Jimmy George. Standing in the middle of the locker room following the game, Gary Enmark of the Wings passionately bellowed to this teammates: “This is playoff hockey – I love you guys!” As in game one – “Gentleman” Don Courtley with the Habs only goal!

Apparently showing playoff frustration, Billy Hagen of the Flyers with three quick penalties(Cross Checking, Abuse of Officials and Unsportsmanlike Conduct) on the games first shift and a very early game exit. Hopefully he left some beverages in the cooler? Eddie Higgins with a solo roughing minor penalty for the Hawks.
