Week 2 Recap

Week 2 in the books.  Early match between Finland and USA.  All Yanksters in the 1st period as they out score Finland 3-0.  The 2nd frame saw both squads score once with USA on a 4-1 lead going into he 3rd.  An early USA goal sealed this one.  Both squads scored very late but the USA skated away with their 2nd win 6-2.  Finland got goals from Jay Cummings and rookie Dave Connolly.  USA got 2 goals from rookie sensation Johnny Ridge and 2 goals from what????  One eyed Billy Dawe.  Singles from Pat McCormick (fill in) and Peter Freeman.  Johnny Ridge and Billy Dawe had 4 point nights each Billy Dawe got the nod for Player of the Game.  Finland gave it to Jay Cummings.

Late game between Sweden and Poland.  Pretty tight match, both squads scored single goals in the 1st and both scored 3 times each in the 2nd for a 4-4 heading into the final frame.  Both goalies shut down all shooters the rest of the way and this one finished a 4-4 tie.  Sweden got 2 goals from the very handsome Joe Peacock and singles from his line mates Rukavina and Steve Kaluzny.  Poland got 2 goals from fill in Dan Barrett and singles from Joe Cosentino and Alan Robb.  Both teams went 0-2 on the PP.  Players of the Game went to Swedens Steve Kaluzny and to Polands Jeffery Kostick.   Sweden has played both their games this season against both the Barrett boys and still have not played Dan’s actual team.  Some Dr. Phil therapy will be needed soon.
