HAWKS 5 SHARKS 3
Donnie Riviera scores exactly one minute into the contest as the Hawks hand the Sharks their first loss since the first game of the season! Goaler Joe Polizzi was outstanding in nets! James Puffer with a two goal game. Marty Papesh and sub Mike Folster with singles. Billy Mac Jr.(2) and veteran defenseman Lou Suvak score for the Fish in this penalty free game.
BRUINS 10 WINGS 3
The Bruins jump out to a seven zip lead and then lay off the throttle a little bit as they destroy the Wings! Center John McNeilly with the trick. Deuces wild for Ray “Dog” Tonelli and John Cornish. Singles for “Old Man” Jack Priauix, Brian Reath and sub Paul Erickson. Captain Rex Baker with a huge five assist game! “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio with a three helper game. Wings – Mike Nalepa, Terry Boyette and FSD’s own – Trevor Thompson. No trips to the sin bin for either squad.
HABS 6 FLYERS 2
The Frenchmen earn a methodical W over the Flyers. Sub Mark Norrington with the deuce. Singles for Bryan Prentice, Larry Rowe, Al Pyc on a beautiful solo effort and sub Paul Violassi, also with a great solo effort. Mike “King of the Road” Miller and a blistering slap shot from the right point – Pat “The Beast” Wosek with the Flyers goals. Once again – no penalties in the game!
HAWKS 5 HABS 2
How bout them Hawks! They defeat the two top teams in the standings today – the Sharks and Habs! With his wife and two young children in attendance – left defenseman Steve (With a Nod and A) Wink weaves his way around four Habs players and scores on a beautiful backhand 21 ticks into the game! Sharing game MVP honors, were Hawks goalie “Smoking” Joe Polizzi and Captain John “Shifty” Shelton – who was everywhere on the ice with a three goal game! Polizzi – time and time again stymied the Habs! Providence call up John Zuccarini with the game winning goal. Larry “School Boy” Rowe and sub Mark Norrington tally for the Habs. Now – we do have a penalty in this game! Four minutes left in the game, Habs sub Norrington somehow breaks his stick in two. Absolutely livid that no penalty was called, he takes the remaining top half of his stick and beaks it into two more pieces over the boards by his teams bench. Resulting in a slashing minor and a game misconduct. It was pretty exciting. Reminiscent of the old checking days!
SHARKS 9 WINGS 7
Ouch again! After surrounding 16 goals in last weeks games – the Wings top that this week with 19 goals allowed. Their goals against this season in just under seven a game! Good thing there is no goal light utilized. It would be burned out! Billy Mac Jr. with the hat trick. Mike Riddle with the deuce. Singles for “Jumping” Jim Leonardi, Jeff Ivory(Also 3 Helpers), and subs “Vin” Scully and Greg Calvin. Wings – Mike Nalepa(2), Terry Boyette, Eddie Sudzina, Steve “Mario” Lemieux and subs Paul Elsey Jr. and Dave “Beach Boy” Wilson.
FLYERS 6 BRUINS 3
The Flyers split up longtime line mates Brian Moore and Mike Miller too great results. Sub Steve Bayagich with three identical top shelf short side backhand goals! Fellow subs Kyle Lybecker and Mike Ala(3 Helpers) also score, as does Mike Miller. Brian Moore with the hat trick assist. Kirk “Captain America” Larson was simply outstanding between the pipes! John McNeilly(2) and sniper Craig Bastuba with the Bruins markers.
