The Daily Phil Esposito (3/16/11)

By Unknown author


Twenty two former featherheads took the ice last night. Three were net-minders who had a record of 2-1-0 on the night. The one loss came from the goalie playing in Ottawa. The other nineteen skaters scored nine points including three goals and six assists. Couple of guys who normally don’t tally goals scored the goals to get their fifteen second celebrations in. Enjoy.
