53 goals scored in today’s six games!  Not too much fun being a goalie!

FLYERS    9    BRUINS   3

The sub laden Flyers put a hurting on Baker’s Bruins!  Deuces wild for Mike Miller and subs Kyle Lybecker and Glen Paraskevin.  More on Glen later.  Frank “Crash” Casali, Steve “Mario” Lemieux and sub Danny Caton with singles.  Sub Sean Kotery with the hat trick assist.  Assistant Captain Danny Rea shows up in the second period, plagued by the dreaded variable schedule!  Brian Barker, John McNeilly and Steve Bayagich tally for the Bruins. Most of you probably don’t know the family history of sub Glen Paraskevin.  Let me enlighten you!  Growing up in the shadows of the State Fairgrounds in Detroit, Glen is the older brother of Kenny and Connie.  Kenny played for Ron Mason at Michigan State and was the final 1980 Olympic cut by Herb Brooks.  Connie is a retired professional track cyclist and speed skater.  She is a four times sprint world champion and ten times national sprint champion and an olympic bronze medalist.  At the age of 19 she was a member of the 1980 USA Winter Olympic speed taking team, but did not compete.  In 1984 she did compete in the Winter Olympics.  Quite a talented family!   I’ve been fortunate to be a teammate of Kenny’s in various Ontario tournaments and it was a pleasure to be a teammate of his.

WINGS   8    HABS   5

Right winger Nick Piccolo with the natural hat trick in the first period!  Singles for Paul Violassi, Terry Boyette, Jimmy “Jets” Galloway and sub Jeff Ivory.  Dana Boyette, Robbie Olmstead, Zach Wagner and sub “Midtown” Mikey Brown score for the Frenchmen.

WINGS   2     SHARKS   2

A very well played game as both goalies – Dar and Sharks net-minder Greg Sutter shine in nets.  Wings sub Jeff Ivory pounds in a rebound and Paul Violassi with the Wings second marker.  Curt Lesnau(PP) and Nate McNaughtry light the lamp for the Fish.  The Sharks welcomed back forward Scott Chodun from his four game suspension of his slew foot – intent to injure infraction.

HABS   6     HAWKS   4

The Habs prevail in this very physical encounter.  Brian Moore and Zach Wagner both with two goal games.  Singles for Lenny Gerbino and Paulie “Knuckles” Polizzi.  Mr. Greg Kalvin with all of his team’s four goals!  The Hawks played with nine players today as sub Trevor Thompson was lost on a golf course somewhere!  Things got a little ugly as Hawks Captain Brendan Brosnan(Roughing Minor) and Habs center Brian Moore(Roughing Minor & a 10 Minute misconduct) get into a major scrum as Moore was the recipient of a Brosnan haymaker!  Both players – Brosnan(3 Penalties) and Moore(10 Minute Misconduct) did not complete the game.

FLYERS   8     HAWKS   1

The top spot Flyers sweep in grand fashion today, as they enter the final week of the regular season up by two points over the Habs.  Sub Sean Kotery with the hat trick.  Singles for fellow subs Danny Caton and Glen Paraskevin and regular’s Mike “King of the Road” Miller and Steve Lemieux.  Hawks forward Mike T. Brown scores the games first goal.  All down hill from there for the Hawks!

BRUINS    3    SHARKS   2

The turning point of the game, was the Bruins third and game winning goal by “Angry” Joe Ventimiglio.  With six seconds remaining in the first period, Sharks defenseman Pierre Dugas gets body checked behind his own net(No Call) and goes down in a crumpled mess, as the Bruins player finds “Angry” all alone in the slot for the game winner!  Dugas goes back to his bench and sits down while loudly verbally expressing his displeasure.  Off to the box for a minor unsportsmanlike penalty.  Brian Barker and John McNeilly with the Bruins first two goals.  Bruins net-minder Keith Connie was simply outstanding between the pipes, foiling the Sharks time after time!  Lloyd Rogers and Steve Wink do the honors for the Sharks.  The Sharks missed a golden opportunity to tie the game with a second left and the goalie pulled, as the Sharks player had a wide open slam dunk and inexplicably shot wide!
