The Sharks play a methodical game and sweep for the day to extend their winning streak to four games! Al Pyc with their first and last goals. Subs Matt Dawson and Linell with middle goals. Curt Lesnau scores for the Bruins on a great pass from left defenseman Tom McHugh to wreck Sharks goalie Mike Schlimgen’s double shutout effort.

WINGS 4 FLYERS 2
A feisty affair as the swift Mary Sell scores twice for the Wings. General Robert E. Lee and Cam “Steamboat” Lawrence with singles. The fired up Ryan O’Rourke and sub Dougie Roehl tally for the Flyers who drop a deuce today. Nine penalties in all were called in this contest. Paulie Giles of the Wings interferes with Chuck Mouraine of the Flyers, who reciprocates with a slash as they both reside to the box. Wings enforcer Chris Zanke was in rare form today as he cross checks Ryan O’Rourke, who retaliates with a major chop and both hit the box, followed up by a little post game parking lot banter. Zanke also incurs a solo roughing minor penalty.

Two ties for the Hawks today as they remain undefeated in their past eight games! Billy Hagen with a two goal game. Singles for Rob Hubulber and Brian Belloli. Curt “Beatle” Bailey with the tour du chapeau for the Habs. “Gentleman” Don Courtley with the Habs initial goal.
