SHARKS 3 FLYERS 0
Sharks goalie “Sugar” John Marchin shuts out the high flying Flyers in a splendid display of puck stopping! Al Phipps, Ronnie Meltsner and Steve “Barney Miller” Dietrich do the honors for the Fish. No Flyers highlights. While serving his holding the stick penalty, the Flyers Chuck Mouraine picks up an unsportsmanlike minor penalty with an entertaining display of four letter words! Then with the game clock waning – Howard Smith(Roughing) of the Flyers and sub Jim “Vin” Scully(Body Check) of the Sharks exchange pleasantries. Guess the top spot Flyers don’t take kindly to losing.

These Frenchmen were flying today, as they sweep in grand fashion! Bruce “Cooler Man” Gooel with the tour du chapeau. Steve Orr with the deuce.
