FLYERS    7     HABS    4

Flyers pump in five final period goals for the W!  Captain Danny Rea with two goals including the game winning goal.  Singles for “Midtown” Mikey Brown, Trevor Wrobel, Jimmy “Jets” Galloway, Rich Artymovich and sub Scott “Smiling” Davenport.  It was nice to see sub Lloyd Rogers back in the fold as he and his brother Mark score.  The Joe’s – Reiss and Ventimiglio also find the back of the net for the Habs.

SHARKS    4    WINGS   2

Appearing right off his boat on the Clinton River – sub Will Wizzer” White with the deuce.  Mike Garlick and Ward Peterson also with Sharks goals.  Zach Wagner and Steve Bayagich tally for the Wings.

BRUINS    5    HAWKS   1

Goal-keep Kris “King” Arthur and his band of Bruins run roughshod over the Hawks.  Nick Piccolo scores twice for the Bruins.  Singles for John Cornish, Rex Baker and Providence call up Mike Ala.  Brian Moore with the lone Hawks goal in this penalty free game.

HABS   5     BRUINS   4

Score tied 4-4.  Then Rob Rowling sweeps down the right wing and goes far side low, for his second goal of the game and the game winner with less than two minutes remaining in the game!  Paul “Stork” Eriskson also with a two goal game.  Pat “The Beast” Wosek with the Habs initial marker.  Deuces wild for Jeff Steiber and once again Nick Piccolo for the Bruins.  Rex Baker with the hat trick assist.

HAWKS   5    WINGS   1

Line-mates Brian Moore and Robbie Olmstead put on an offensive clinic as they both score twice.  Sub Billy “The Dark” Night also scores for the Hawks.  Sub Marcel Dimitri with the Wings marker.  Postgame in the locker room veteran Wings player Terry Boyette tells Marcel: ” I played with and against your Dad Dennis and your uncle Bobby the goalie, as both are now retired from working and hockey and now I’m playing with you!  Gotta keep on ticking Terry!

SHARKS    9    FLYERS   3

Flyers sub Scott Davenport scores his first of two goals 38 ticks into the game.  It was all downhill from there for the Flyers!  After honing his skills Tuesday as an “R” League sub – Mr. Mike Garlick with a huge four goal game for the Fish!  Singles for Nate McNaughtry and subs Will White, Jimmy Degan, Barker and it’s nice to see the return of longtime Sting player Jimmy Pufer.  Four subs today for the Sharks as they sweep on the day!  Oh – and Marty Papesh with the Flyers final tally in this penalty free game.



Which NHL team once drafted a player that didn’t exist?

The biggest prank in NHL history occurred in 1974 when Buffalo sabres GM Punch Imalch selected star center Taro Tsujimoto of the Japan Ice Hockey League’s Tokyo Katanas in the 11th round of the NHL draft.  The NHL made the pick official, and it was reported by media outlets including the HOCKEY NEWS.  But Taro Tsujimoto didn’t exist.  In fact, his team didn’t exist either.  The JIHL had no team representing Tokyo at the time.  Imalch did not acknowledge the fake pick until just before the start of training camp.  The team even set up a stall for him and listed him on their training camp roster.  When the prank was finally discovered, the league was not amused as Tsujimoto’s name had already appeared in several NHL publications.
