WINGS 2 HAWKS 2
A well played game as both goalies John Marchin and sub “Ticker” Chauvin take turns swatting away shot after shot. Mike Ala and who else – Gary Enmark tally for the top spot Wings, who have not lost in 13 straight games. Hawks – Jimmy George and Southfields own – Dave “Buckeye” Wahl. Penalty minute leader – rookie Chuck Mouraine, with a 2 minute body checking penalty and a 10 minute unsportsmanlike infraction, adds to his escalating penalty minute total.
STARS 2 LEAFS 0
The league’s leading scorer Ronnie Meltsner and the elusive Pat Collins score the games only goals, as the Stars sweep for the day. Goaler Bobby Rutkoske with the whitewash. No Leafs highlights as they drop a deuce today. The Leafs Chris Zanke and Meltsner both receive roughing minors and commiserate together in the box.
