Kenny “Primetime” Wilkins scores the first period game winning goal, along with his teams final marker. Steve Orr and Jeff “Dick” Tracy also tally for the Frenchmen. Goaler Sir Kevin Beebe with a light workload. Jimmy “Boog” Powell was the only Shark to solve the knighted one. Zero trips to the sin bin for either squad.
BRUINS 4 WINGS 1
The second place Bruins make a statement, as they hand the top spot Wings their first L of the season! Red hot Adam Godard with the deuce for the Bruins. Singles for David “Hammer” Arsenault and sub “Fred” Lynn. Goalie Bobby Rutkoske was outstanding between the pipes! Mary Sell with the lone Wings marker. Mr. Arsenault picks up a solo roughing minor penalty.
FLYERS 6 HAWKS 1
Lots of speed on that Flyers line of Mike Ala and sub Steve “Mario” Lemieux, as they both tally twice in this game. Singles for Bruce “Cooler Man” Gooel and European sub Vigi. John Zuccarini with the hat trick assist. Goaler Mike Mostyn with a solid game in nets. Ronnie Meltsner with the Hawks lone tally in this penalty free game.
WINGS 8 SHARKS 2
Ohh – the Wings did not take lightly to losing their first game of the season in game one! Da Sharks were the unfortunate recipient. Stevie Lambert with the trick. Deuces wild for Marty Sell and Cam “Steamboat” Lawrence. Barry Piornack also with a goal. Sub “Magnum” Higgins with both Sharks tallies. The Sharks are now winless in their past 8 games.
