Prosecutors had no plea offer Monday for the wife of hockey great Brian Leetch and her sister when the pair made a brief appearance in their Upper East Side bar scrap case.

Mary Beth Leetch and Tracy Murphy, 49 and 44, are charged with attacking three employees Brandy’s Piano bar on E. 84th St. after an altercation around 1:45 a.m. on May 12.

Both made their second appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court on Monday when prosecutors filed additional paperwork and the case was adjourned for their attorneys to file motions.

Murphy’s lawyer Arthur Aidala said prosecutors “to their credit” are still talking to people involved and assessing the situation.

“Hopefully when they hear both sides of the story we’ll be in good shape and we’ll get a disposition we can live with,” Aidala said.

He added that the ladies left the scuffle with injuries akin to the ones described by the bar staff.

“Both of them have bruises, scratches lacerations, and the exact same type of injuries that the complaining victims have.”

“We are asking that the DA’s office conduct an investigation as to what took place, what actually started this whole thing,” added Leetch’s attorney Joseph Mure.

He added that “just like the complainants received injuries, both girls also received some injuries.”

Bartender Greg Goodbrod filed a lawsuit against the pair after the ordeal.

Prosecutors say they cut his head and ripped his shirt in the altercation.

Leetch and Murphy are charged with assault, attempted assault, criminal mischief and harassment.

Leetch allegedly name-dropped her famous husband, an NHL Hall of Famer and star on the Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup champions, and Police Commissioner James O’Neill when cops arrived at the scene.

“I have friends who are cops. I even know the commissioner,” she allegedly said.

Brian Leetch retired from hockey in 2006.
