Week 3 recap:
OILERS 4 FLYERS 2 – Four different scorers lit the lamp for the Oilers who kept the pedal to the floor, starting the season with 3 wins. Walt Bludgon notched a pair for the Flyers who faced defeat for the first time this season. Great battle of the titans in the junior division.
BRUINS 7 BLACKHAWKS 5 – Steven Beraldo and Glen Erskine both enjoyed their Gatorade before the game, firing two goals each as the Bruins won a crazy one 7-5 over the Blackhawks. Dennis Cybalski gets a stick tap for his 2 goals in a losing cause.
REDWINGS 3 PENGUINS 2 – Wayne Sliwinski chipped in with 2 points as the Redwings held off those pesky Penguins 3-2 in front of a packed house. Some great plays in this game left more than a few of us rubbing our eyes. Keep an eye on the Redwings, they are climbing the standings and have their minds set on 1st place real soon.
PENGUINS 3 LEAFS 2 – Brian Powell wears #68 for the Penguins and he played like Jaromir Jagr on this night, making the score sheet 3 times with 2 goals and an apple as the Penguins hung on to rake the Leafs. 8 minor penalties were called in this one, the referee started a go-fund me page to buy a new whistle. Warren Russell and Trevor Swanson scored for the Leafs who will are still in the thick of things in a close intermediate division race.
FLYERS 2 CANADIENS 2 – What about a 2 minute 3-on-3 overtime to maybe decide a tie? Just a thought but what do i know. Brock Hotrum scored twice to propel the Flyers while Rob baker, fresh off an emotional anthem playing against his old team, and Alfonso Tinebra, replied for les Canadiens.
BRUINS 3 BLACKHAWKS 1 – The Bruins, led by a hatty by Glenn Rouse, got by the first place Blackhawks in a tight game that had the hockey world sitting at the edge of their seats. 2 points separate first and last.
KINGS 7 STARS 3 –Henry Marfisi showed up bound and determined to put on a show for the ages and that he did. 3 goals and a helper as the Kings trounced the Stars. Mike Vanderzee added a goal and 2 assists as the Kings continue to battle for first place supremacy. Stars season has started off a bit cloudy but it’s only September 25th, it’s still early.
SHARKS 3 FLAMES 1 – The Sharks splashed water on the Flames 3-1 in a defensive battle. Both teams are in the middle of the log jam in the Masters division and the Flames will be coming out a blazin’ next week.
FLYERS 2 REDWINGS 2 – what a defensive affair as these two teams tied 2-2. Low scoring game but the action on the ice went up and down like a fiddler’s elbow. Both goaltender’s were up to the task. We could smell the A5-35 from up at the bar after this one. Hard played game.
BRUINS 10 BLACKHAWKS 1 – Well that didn’t go as planned. Alastair Kermack “kermacked” the Hawks with 5 goals taking home the game puck for all to see. That Dale Brons is no slouch either, piling up 3 goals and 3 apples for the winners. 21 goals in 3 games for the Bruins as they continue to impress. It’s not a rebuilding year, a retool, they are in it to win it, pal.
That’s all from this end of the ice...
