Levittown Bucks County Courier Times (Newspaper) - January 8, 1968, Levittown, Pennsylvania MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 1968 BUCKS COUNTY COURIER TIMES PACE 15Flyers Defeat Pittsburgh Crucial Doubleheader By JOHN RIBAR Courier Times Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Flyers reached the midway point of their 74-game National Hockey League schedule over the weekend and entered the two-day back-to-back en gagement with a crucial “doub-leheader” playing the Pittsburgh Penguins. Two important, make-or break situations faced the Flyers meeting Pittsburgh — but the Philadelphians came out with flying colors by getting a 2 2 tie in the Steel City Saturday then knocking out a 3-1 victory over the Penguins here last night. This writer was fortunate enough to be along on the trip with the Flyers to Pittsburgh and was on hand to see the Philadelphia skaters overcome both possible obstacles and help celebrate with the players on their success. Going into the two-game series with the Pittsburghers, the Flyers were holding down first place in the Western Division by six points over the Penguins in third place. The Pittsburghers have been moving along fast late ly and needed a pair of wins over the Flyers to reduce the lead to two points. 2 Jobs Well Done Meanwhile the two Philadelphia goalies, Doug Favell and Bernie Parent, needed to hold the Pittsburghers in check for two reasons - keep the Flyers in first place and win the first cash prize offered by the National League. The two goaltenders did both. Getting past the Penguins has now boosted the Flyer lead to eight points. A nice bulge at thte half-wav point. The NHL also gives the goalie with the lowest “scored against average” a $250 gift as a midseason Vezina Trophy award. Toronto's goalie was closest to the Flyer goalies but had three goals scored against him Saturday night (Toronto’s 37th game), and he finished with 82 goals against. The 2 2 tie in Pittsburgh with Parent in the nets Saturday and Favell’s 3-1 win last night added up to only 77 goals against the Philadelphians in 37 games — and beat out the Toronto goalie by five golas. Splendid Averages In 16 games Favell allowed 32 goals for a 2.00 average, and Parent gave up 43 goals in 21 games for 2.05 — and the two show a 2.03 average in 37 games and 75 goals. Two other goals against the Flyers were made when the nets were unmanned The Toronto goalie's average in 37 games was 2.22 with 82 goals allowed. He also got a bad jolt last night in starting the second half by giving up six goals to New York. On the flight to Pittsburgh Saturday we sounded out the Flyer players regarding the si tuations (protecting the league lead and helping the goalies win the $250). Captain Lou Angotti expressed the feeling of each individual Fyer, saying, “We want Parent and Favell to collect, and by holding up our defense (keeping the score down) we can protect our lead and pull away from Pittsburgh if our offense can score.’ Angotti showed the way Saturday by scoring the first Flyer goal and then assisted, along with Gary Dornhoefer in setting up the other goal made by Brit Selby for the 2-2 tie A Good Feeling The entire team personnel was happy, on the return trip by plane yesterday, that the Flyers hadn't dropped anv points in the six-point first place lead in Pittsburgh. “How does it feel to be in first place with a National League hockey team?”, we asked a group of Flyers while waiting for the plane in the Greater Pittsburgh airport. Actually one needn’t ask — it seems to reflect in their attitude. We wanted to get the reaction of a prominent team member and cornered Don Blackburn, a 6-0 leftwinger who weighs 180. Don has been experimenting with a newtype hockey stick I that has a larger hook Than the ordinary stick — but that’s another story). “Is it any different being in first place?’’ we asked Blackburn. He replied. “The whole at mosphere is nice while your in first place. Things seem to be more relaxed and everything is great.” A Big Difference Don explained that when your team is near the bottom of the standings it seems that the breaks go against you because everything is so costly, yet almost the same sort of thing can happen while the team is in first place and you just don t mind because it doesn’t hurt so much “You can live with a lot of situations while leading the league which gripes you terribly if you are down in the standings." said Blackburn. Don believes it has been a team effort that put the Flyer on top. saying, “All the way from the club president down to the coach, the players and even the trainer, we have been a happy group ” Getting back home with a tie, the Flyers were all business last night facing the Penguins again. All seemed serious before and during the game at the Spectrum. But following the game the boys were in a happy mood and did a lot of kidding. A lead of seven points over the runnerup team isn’t hard to take, especially since the Flyers have three more games to play than Los Angeles (who was beaten by Oakland last night, 6-0 ) The Flyer players are a “re laxed" group. We noticed that when the players assembled at the International Airport :n Phil adelphia Saturday. The plane was still on the runway, yet there were three card games rn progress. The others were in conversation, a lot of kidding and laughter was observed. Saturday this writer was having lunch with Coach Keith Allen and six players at one table. The players departed and we asked Allen, “Thus group see ms to be a friendly bunch, how are they to handle?” To which the coach replied, “They are a great group, and as a group I don’t have any problem. Individually they are well-behaved, .seldom. very, very seldom do I have lo ‘talk’ to any of them off the ice.” We noticed the players respect Coach Allen. Ho has a nice w v of moving around to spend a hit of time with various groups if they are waiting around like at the airport. He also gets a lot of pleasure sharing a joke with the players and gets a lot of attention if relating an incident. There is a good management coach-player attitude in the entire Flyer makeup — and the results show in the first place Western Division standings. With a seven-point bulge vet!
