NHL Showdown: 3-on-3: Game 2

Rogie Vachon's Fatcats and Wayne Stephenson's Sweathogs continue their short-lived rivalry in the Showdown 78 3-on-3 tournament. No bodychecking or slapshots and a smaller ice surface make for a fun, fast-paced game. The two teams need overtime to settle this battle for $10,000 and bragging rights. 
• Goalie Wayne Stephenson is an "Honoured Member" of the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame. He helped Team Canada win Olympic bronze in 1968 and won a Stanley Cup with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1975. • Steve Shutt won a Stanley Cup in his rookie season with the Montreal Canadiens and was a major contributor to the Habs' streak of four straight cups between 1976-79.
