Higgins and “DeBus” DeBus with their goals. Debus and Bruins defenseman Randy Debeul both agree to currently dislike each other and hit the box with roughing minor penalties.
HAWKS 3 HABS 3
The Habs go up three times by a goal, only to see the Hawks claw back each time for the tie. Left defenseman Kenny “Prime Time” Wilkins with a strong game on D and a two goal game to boot! Jeff “Dick” Tracy with the Habs initial goal on a great cross goal crease pass from Cam Lawrence. Billy Hagen(2) and Kenny Perko tally for the Hawks who also received excellent goaltending from Sting rookie sub Al Rice.
