Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 12, 1973 COACH OUTING CAN'T SAV I'M VERY KsEN', [H IT'S T'JST AN EXCUSE FOR I A CALLING IN VOU'LL NE AWAY WITH V'KNOW EVcjSV ON' THE WAV J r< THE COAST 3V 1 TIME WE GET THESE IT'S E Crusaders bounce Blazers in four McKenzie and troops hit sidelines Kv THE CANADIAN PRESS Cleveland Crusaders ad- vanced to the World Hockey As- sociation semi-final playoffs Wednesday but it could be a while before they meet their next opponent, judging by the noises Ottawa Nationals are making. I The Crusaders wrapped up their four-game sweep over Philadelphia Blazers in the quarter-finals Wednesday night with a 6-2 victory in Phila- delphia- Cleveland now awaits the win- ner of the other east division series which has New England Whalers leading the Nationals 2-1 going into tonight's fourth game in Toronto. A fifth game is scheduled for Boston Sunday and a sixth, if necessary, in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens Monday. "I'm sure we'll be back in the Gardens Monday said Nats' general manager Buck Houle Wednesday after his team had beaten New England 4-2 Tuesday. Philadelphia, without goalie Beniie Parent and without the scoring power coach Johnny McKenzie had hoped for, were easy victims of the Crusaders who bunched three goals in a five-minute span of the second period. The teams exchanged single first-period goals before a Philadelphia crowd of and then Paul Andrea, Skip Krake and Jim Wiste beat Blazers That's all for Parent Sharks move ahead of Aeros Jets within one win By THE CANADIAN' PRESS Winnipeg Jets moved to within one fame of a series iriumph while Los Angeles Sharks took the lead over Hous- ;on Aeros in World Hockey As- sociation West Division playoff action Wednesday. The Jets, with Norm Beaudm scoring the winner in overtime, seat Minnesota Fighting Saints r.-2 to take a 3-1 lead in that oest-of-seven World Trophy quarter-final. Fifth game in the series is set for Winnipeg Sun- day. At Los Angeles, the Sharks scored all their goals in the first eight minutes and hung on a 3-2 win over Houston and a 2-1 lead in that set. Los Angeles plays for the .ourth game Fridav. At St. Faul, Minn., the Jets iorced the overtime with' Bill I Sutherland's goal in the final minute cf regulation time. I Beaudin's winning goal came i on a power after Min- resota goaUe Mike Curran got his stick caught in the net. Beaudm wheeled around the net and popped the puck into the empty side of the net with Cur- ran out cf position. i Minnesota had taken the j early lead with Ted Hampson's power-play goal at of the first period. After Larry Hornung tied it j for Winnipeg, also on a first-pe- riod power play, Terry BaE put Minnesota back in front when he beat Jets' goalie Joe Daley i with a shot from the right point midway in the second period. The Jets were without star i centre Chris Bordeleau who was i sidelined when he stopped a I shot with his left ankle in Tues- I day's game. The club said he would be out of action about 10 days. At Los Angeles, the Sharks bunched their scoring within a I three-minute span early in the first period. Alton White and Fred Speck got power-play goals and Gerry Odrowski got an unassisted score when the i Sharks were short-handed. I Houston also confined its scoring to the first period with a power-play goal by Dune j J.tcCallum and another score by Brian McDonald. j Houston outshot the Sharks i 31-28 in the game and 24-13 dur- ing the two scoreless periods, but Russ Gillow provided the goal- tending Los Angeles Don McLeod guarded the Houston goal. j PHILADELPHIA (AP) owner and president of Phila- i delphia Blazers of the World j H o c k e y Association said i Wednesday they were through I with goalie Bernie Parent. Owner Bernie Brown and President Dick Olson made the comment at a news conference minutes after their team was eliminated from the playoffs. The Blazers were swept out in four straight games by Cleve- land Crusaders. Cleveland ap- plied the crusher Wednesday night 6-2. Parent tried to renegotiate his contract during the playoffs and walked out after one game of the best-of-seven quarter-final j against Cleveland. Brown and Olson also castj aside rumors the team would be moved to Miami, Seattle, New Orleans, San Diego, or Toronto. Olson said of the Parent case that the goalie's lawyer ex- ercised an option to declare the player's contract voided, al- though all the provisions had been lived up to. He said there was an irrevo- cable letter of credit for 000 in the bank to secure the five-year, pact signed with Parent. He said the goalie had been compensated this sea- son according to a deferred payment plan of Parent's Phil Watson, the team's direc- tor of personnel, related a story of Parent's surprise when noti- fied that his agent had voided the contract. Watson said Par- ent wanted to continue in the playoffs and remain in Phila- delphia. Olson contended that Parent's lawyer 'tried to hold a gun to the Blazer executive's head, us- ing the playoffs to get a renego- tiated contract. "He (the attorney) didn't think I'd call his bluff. I take the blame for this team not making it through the playoffs. It was a matter of principle and I'd do it again." goalie Yves Archambault in the second period. Archambault was filling in for Parent who had left the club in. a dispute over a salary guaran- tee. The Crusaders also got goals from Gerry Finder, Bob Dil- labough and Rich Pumple. Don Herriman scored for the Blaz- ers in the first period and McKenzie got one in the second. Gerry Cheevers collected the victory in the Crusaders goal after stopping 32 shots while Archambault made 26 saves. In Toronto, the Nationals' op- timism seemed largely based on the performance of goalten- ders Les Binkley and Gillet Gratton and New Englam coach Jack Kelley didn't argue "If ttieir netminders con- tinue to play well, they're goint to be tough to said Kel ley. Centre Wayne Carleton re mained a doubtful starter tonight for the Nationals after was learned he suffere stretched ligaments In his lei! leg when he was checked dur ing Tuesday's game.
