Big 4-1 win for Germany, avoid Poland in round one.


To loser would have to play the high powered Poland team next week in round one of the playoffs.

One team came to play, and one could not get a shot on net on a breakaway.

Still others were so excited that they ran into the rink and onto the ice, with the car running in the parking lot with the keys in them.

Gentlemen, start your engines, and let's look at what happened.

It was almost 4-0 after one period, as Germany either hit the post or just missed the net on four occasions.

"I'd rather be up almost 4-0 than down almost 4-0," said Tripp.

Finally in the 2nd Rick Armand broke Big Ben's shutout, as the Sweden goalie was standing on his head trying to keep the green team in this game.

After two periods Germany was up 1-0 and outshooting Sweden 27-2. This also includes a Grasso breakaway in which he lost the puck.

Jon Morin couldn't get anything going, as he was being dogged by Mike Raimo. That was until Mike had to run out of the rink to take the keys out of his running car.

"That's only happened 3 other times," laughed Raimo. "I guess I was real excited about the game today."

A shot by Ragu made it 2-0, then finally Sweden scored on a George Howard goal, and it was 2-1 with 5 to play.

A bad giveaway gave Todd Nichol and easy open net goal, then Ragu added an ENG of his own for the 4-1 final.
