SHARKS 5 HAWKS 5
This was a wild one! The Sharks score twice within a 30 second span, to take a 5-4 lead with just under four minutes left in the game!

Sharks – Steve “Barney Miller” Dietrich, Barry Piornack(Also 3 Helpers), Steve Orr, Jimmy “Boog” Powell and John Perini. No trips to the box for either squad.
WINGS 4 HABS 1
Special teams were in vogue for the Wings today, as they score twice on the power play and once minus a player. Apparently feeling much better these days – sub Bob “Bugsy” Watson with the hat trick! Fellow sub “Fred” Lynn also with a goal. Mike Ala with the Habs tally.
FLYERS 8 HAWKS 6
Whoa! No goalies mentioned in this recap! Mr. Stevie Lambert with a four goal game for the top spot clinched Flyers. Sniper Ronnie Meltsner with the trick.
