Two of the unbeatens squared off at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, where Dan’s Flyers took on Jeremy’s Kings. The crowd was rocking pregame and it continued as Eric Lindros scored 26 seconds into the game. The Kings quieted the Philadelphia faithful with two goals less than two minutes apart, one by Wayne Gretzky and the other by Ian Laperriere. At the 13:41 mark of the second period, Kevin Stevens took a high sticking penalty, and the Flyers capitalized on the ensuing powerplay. Rod Brind’Amour knotted the game up at 2. The score remained the same heading into the third, but not for long. Six seconds into the final period, Eric Desjardins scored to give the Flyers the lead. Justin Williams added an empty net goal to seal the deal.

Andy’s Bruins hosted Joey’s Penguins at TD Garden in Boston.  The Penguins took an early penalty by John Cullen, leading to a Ray Bourque powerplay goal 45 seconds into the game.  Midway through the first, Ed Olczyk scored the Penguins’ first tournament goal to tie it at 1.  Mario Lemieux scored the only goal in the second period, giving Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead heading into the third.  The Bruins wouldn’t quit, and their persistence turned into a Joe Thornton goal with nine minutes remaining in regulation.  The teams battled through overtime, but with twelve seconds left, Mario Lemieux scored his second of the night to give Pittsburgh two points.  Both Tim Thomas and Tom Barrasso were on their games, as each team had over 50 shots.

The final game of the round pitted Cujo’s Jackets against Gabbi’s Rangers in Columbus. Alexei Kovalev got things started for the Rangers, 5:49 into the game. The game remained that way until 5:05 remained in the second when David Vyborny tied it up. 40 seconds later, Columbus took the lead on a goal scored by Grant Clitsome. The Blue Jackets kept the pressure up, pumping in 42 shots on Henrik Lundqvist throughout the game, and scored two more goals in the third, one each by Fedor Tyutin and Nikolai Zherdev. Steve Mason stopped 34 Rangers shots to earn top star of the game.
