Deuces wild for the trio of Kevin Mahon, Ben Haynes and Jimmy “Boog” Powell. Sub Chapie with the game winning goal. League assist leader Brian Belloli and Argentina sub Churilla with the Hawks markers in this lopsided affair. At Joe Kools following the game, Sharks forward Kevin Mahon was apologizing to his significant other – Maryann – that he tried his hardest for the hat trick today as a Valentines gift to her!
HABS 2 WINGS 1
The ever improving David Walters with both French goals, as the Habs defeat the Wings behind the acrobatic puck stopping of goals against leader Sir Kevin Beebe. Barry Piornack with the lone Wings goal in this penalty free game.
FLYERS 5 BRUINS 2
The Flyers clinch the top spot in the standings for a two point head start in the playoffs. The Flyers pull away with a 4 zip lead after the opening period. John Zuccarini with a two goal game. Singles for Gary Enmark, Dr. Keri Topouzian and sub Lawson. Randy Debuel and Dougie Roehl with the Bruins goals.
HAWKS 2 FLYERS 2
After dropping four straight games, the Hawks play an inspired game as they battle the first place Flyers to a stalemate. Tied 2-2 after one period – then both goalies, “Sugar” John Marchin and Flyers sub Brian Miller shut the door. “Gentleman” Don Courtley and James George tally for the Hawks. Once again Gary Enmark and Jerry Frankel with the Flyers goals.
HABS 3 SHARKS 0
Sir Kevin Beebe left the ice to chants of “Wall, Wall” from the fans in attendance! Sir Kevin with the whitewash. Mike Lawson, Jeff ‘Dick” Tracy and sub “Mike” Phipps were the Habs marksman. After recording a seven spot in game one – the Sharks were toothless in this game!
WINGS 3 BRUINS 2
The Wings split for the day and the Bruins drop a deuce today. Paulie “Jay” Giles, Marty Sell and Stevie Lambert score for the Wings. Dave “Hammer” Arsenault and sub “Freddy” Lynn with the Bruins goals. Both goalies – Mike Schlimgen and Bobby Rutkoske with stellar games in nets.
