Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, April 14, 1973 THE IETHRRIDCE HERALD 1J 'Aeros, Sharks square By THE CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles Sharks, who held a big advantage over Houston Aeros in the World Hockey As- sociation's inaugural season, aie having a hard time exerting the same influence in the play- offs. The Sharks, who had six wins against three losses and a tie with Houston during the season, had a chance to take a two- game lead in their best-of-seven quarter-final playoff but let it slip away Friday night. The Aeros forced an overtime period and then got the winning goal from Murray Hall to tie the senes at two wins each. The fifth game in the series is set for Houston Sunday and a sixth at Los Angeles Tuesday. FACE ELIMINATION Ottawa Nationals and Min- nesota Fighting Saints do not enjoy the same fortune as the Aeros as they face elimination in their spries against New England Whalers and Winnipeg Jets respectively. The Nationals are down 3-1 going into tonight's fifth game against the Whalers in Boston while the Saints trail by the same margin going into their fifth game in Winnipeg Sunday. At Los Angeles Friday, the Aeros opened the scoring with a goal by Larry Ltuid who fired backhander off the skate of Sharks goalie Russ Gillow early in the second period. AEROS RALLIED The Sharks tied the score later in the second period on Ted McCaskill's goal and took the lead when Fred Speck beat Houston goalie Wayne Rutledge from close range early in the third period. Paul Popeil's power play goal at of the third period tied the score and forced the over- time Hall's winning goal came just three minutes and 38 seconds into overtime. He scored unas- sisted after picking up a loose puck in front of the Sharks goal The Sharks outshot the Aeros 37-21 in the three regulation pe- riods but Houston took the play into the Los Angeles zone in overtime and had a 3-1 shots advantage.

But tonight at the Forum, tfie Flyers are going to be very much involved in the National Hockey League's post-season action when they open their best-of-seven semi final series against Montreal Canadiens. The Flyers were knocked out of the playoffs last year when Buffalo Sabres scared with four seconds remaining in the third period during the final regular- season game. "We had to prove this year that what happened last year was just one of those things that occurs in Flyers' goalie Doug Favell sail. "After last season, a lot of people were picking us for fifth or sixth." In fact, the Flyers finished in second place in the NHL's West Division behind Chicago Black Hawks. PLArtu Unlucky Friday The Detroit Red Wings, who narrowly missed making the National Hockey League playoffs this year, fired coach Johnny Wilson Friday. Wilson, shown above at a workout earlier in the year, had little to say about his dismissal. Selling back for the finals? CHICAGO (CP) New York Rangers defence, already la- belled the key to the team's bid for its first Stanley Cup since 1940, may be bolstered further by Rod Seiling if the Rangers move into the National Hockey League finals. Seiling, game after game the Rangers' best defenceman in the 1S72-73 campaign until he shattered his co'larbone late in the season, has been working out the last few days. Coach Emile Francis, asked if the veteran defenceman might return to the lineup this year, affirmed the possibility "if we get into the finals.'1 The series resumes Sunday afternoon at 1 pm. MST witn the next two games in Nsw York next Tuesday and Thurs- day. It marks the third straight year the Rangers and Black Hawks have met in the semi- final. They went seven games in 1971 before Chicago moved into the final round, losing an- other seven game series to Montreal Canadiens. The Flyers have played the Canadiens even this season, winning two, losing two and ty- ing one. Each team scored 24 goals in the five games played. One of the Flyers' was came at the Forum on Feb. 17, a night which saw several fights in the opening period, which lasted more than an hour. In last regular-season meeting March 18 in Phila- delphia, the teams battled to a 4-4 draw and that game also was punctuated by fights. Most observers, therefore, are predicting the Flyers-Canadiens semi-final will be a rugged af- fair. "We've tried a lot of styles before we landed on the aggres- sive said Bob Kelly, who was second on the team in pen- alties with 236 minutes. "At the beginning of the sea- son, we'd try poke-checking for a while, then finesse, then using our bodies. But when we lost 6-5 here to Montreal (Nov. 16) we decided on aggressiveness. "The next night we pounded a few guys in lost maybe one game at and we won That's been our style since." Coach Fred Shero says the success of the Flyers this year is the fact the club worked ev- ery day and had new offensive techniques. "The Russians taught us that you haye to work every day and that this business of not lifting a finger on game day was for the birds. We work every day and that sometimes helps get the beer out." The Flyers advanced to the semi-finals by beating Min- nesota North Stars in six games while Montreal also knocked off Buffalo in six games. Canadiens' coach Scotty Bow- man said his club will have to go back to the basics of check- ing. I reealize we were flat from the second period on in our last three meetings with Buffalo, but they weie an under-rated team and they wouldn't let us play our style. "I don't think any team can be any tougher than the Sabres were. Tonight's game will be tele- vised by the CBC national net- work starting at p.m. MST, The series resumes Tuesday night here before the teams head for Philadeipnia for No. 3 Thursday. 5HOUU5 DIE, WHERE WOULtS SHE BE LOOK!

Brian Miller scored twice for Calgary and Greg Smith comnleed the scoring with a single Penticton held period leads of 1-0 and 4-1.

The Canucks were assessed four of eight penalties includ- ing one of five-minute ma- jors for fighting The third and fourth games of the series are scheduled Sunday and Monday at Cal- gary. New federation formed TORONTO (CP) A new federation, hoping to unite ama- teur boxing bodies in Canada, has been formed, Merv McKenzie, Ontario Athletics Commissioner, said Friday. The new group, the Ontario- Quebec Amateur Boxing Feder- ation Alliance, is a merger of the Ontario Boxing Association and the Quebec Amateur Box- ing Association. McKenzie said the alliance will operate on1 side the Cana- dian Amateur Boxing Associ- ation (CABA) and will try to re- place it as the governing body of amateur boxing in Canada. "The new group will ask other provincial boxing associ- ations to join us, even if they now are members ot the CABA." He said the new group ''wants to control and run amateur" boxing in Canada and "I hope this will solve the problems that now exist." "The idea of the new organ- ization is basically to get ama- teur boxing on the right track for the 1976 Olympic Games In He said it may take "a year or two" for the alliance to be- come Canada-wide and recog- nized by the International Ama- teur Boxing Association, the world governing body of the sport CABA now gets federal gov- ernment grants, but if the new group is recognized by the world governing body it would get the grants instead. As things now stand in ama- teur boxing, only members of CABA can compete in the Olympics and CABA boxers arc not allowed to compete against On- tario Boxing Associations and Quebec Amateur Boxing Associ- ation members. ABA boxers must wear headgear, but it is now allowed in international competition. "That means that our boxers are at a disadvantage when they compete in international competition." said McKenzie "We've got to start moving and Perreault ivouldrft play elsetvhere "He's still a long way fromj being Francis said Fri-' i day after watching the 28-year- old natne of Elmira, Ont. go, through a fast-skating workout- with his team-mates.
