1W, no. 6; newsletter by h.s.)
The scene was set for a bizarre outing: first, Scooby shows up after leaving me a message that he can't get out of work; then Rob shows up after sending me a message that he's bashed-up his ankle and will be out for two weeks.
Here's the recap: When the smoke cleared, we had virtually doubled our season goal-scoring total in one night. Our scoring leader, Scooby, began the assault and russ and rob added first period goals to give us a comfortable 3-0 lead at the first break.
Rob picked-up where he left off and scored again in the 2nd, followed by Kevin (who was looking about 15 pounds lighter after battling the flu) and then surprise Rob again. Then, with virtually our entire team on the other side of the blueline except for me and Dave Matthews, the unthinkable happened -- the Canadiens pushed in a rebound. At the end of 2nd, we were up 6-1.
Roger did his Brian Leetch impression and crossed the blueline for a tally and then, somehow, the Canadiens scored again to snap our shutout for the second time in the same night. Not to be left out of the excitement, Glenn Farkas added a goal and then, of course, rob and russ again. we won't mention the other two open-net opportunities that we failed to put away
1) ROB ARMSWOOD
For his four goals. he had predicted he was going to get five, but ...
2) RUSS NICOLOSI
For his two-goal outing (and you guys said he was over-the-hill).
3) DAVE MATTHEWS
For two assists and being the one of the only guys to actually play defense.
