Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Bruins Earn Right To Meet Chicago In Eastern Final Sensational Bobby Orr Sparks Bruins To Series Triumph , NEW YORK (CP) - Boston Bruins take on the Black Hawks in Chicago Sunday afternoon in the Stanley Cup semi-finals after eliminating New York Rangers Thursday night. The Bruins, led by the spectacular rushing of defenceman Bobby Orr, downed the Rangers 4-1 to win the best-of-seven quarter-final series 4-2. The semi-final round also will be a best-of-seven contest. The starting game Sunday afternoon will be carried by the CBC national television network. The Black Hawks have been waiting since last Sunday when they completed a four-game sweep of their quarter-final series with Detroit Red Wings. The Hawks may be rested but the Bruins will be carrying their winning momentum into Chicago. And none of the Bruins has more momentum than Orr, who scored two goals Thursday night, his sixth and seventh of the series. Wayne CasWman and Derek Sanderson collected the other Bruins' goals after defenceman Brad Park got the lone score for the Rangers midway through the first period1. The Bruins were so fired up for the game that general manager Milt Schmidt forgot a pre-game lecture he bad planned. "I've never seen them so fired up," Schmidt said of the Bruins dressing room antics just before the game started be- fore a crowd of 17,250 Thursday. The Rangers also were hot in the opening minutes of play and had several scoring chances while the Bruins failed to seriously test New York goalie Ed Giacomin. The Rangers effectively killed off a penalty to Park at 7:56 of the period and when the Bruins' Dallas Smith took a penalty at SUGAR KINGS END SEASON - Five members of the Lethbrldge Sugar Kings were honored Thursday evening at the third annual banquet and presentation of awards. The winners, from left to right, are Len Chalmers who won the Adrian Uitbeyerse trophy as the most gentlemanly player. Fraser Robertson the Carl Trentini defenceman award, Nigel Russel, The Leth- brldge Herald rookie of the year award and. Jerry LeGrandeur, the most valuable player on the Kings as well as the Alberta Junior League, won the Alex Bennie Memorial trophy. The Getis Reed Memorial trophy for the most valuable Sugar King in the playoffs went to Gerry Vachon, who was not at the dinner. St. Louis Seeking Third Straight Western Crown Blues Advance After Sidelining Minnesota MINNEAPOLIS (CP) - St. Louis Blues moved another step toward their third consecutive Stanley Cup final appearance Thursday night when they eliminated Minnesota North Stars in the sixth game of the quarter-final series. The Blues downed the North Stars 4-2 to capture the best-of-seven playoff round 4-2 and now meet Pittsburgh Penguins in the start of the semi-final round at St. Louis Sunday. The National Hockey League West Division champions will be going up against a Pittsburgh club that has been resting since last Sunday when it eliminated Oakland Seals in four straight games. Winger Ab McDonald scored twice and centre Red Berenson provided one goal and two assists to spark the St. Louis attack before a crowd1 of 14,908. Mass Workout For Juniors Their will be a mass practise for all boys interested in playing junior baseball this year tonight at eight o'clock in the main gym at the Civic Centre. The workout is open to all Junior ball players. Running shoes are a must for the practise and anyone with a sweat suit is asked to bring it. JACK'S PLUMBING SERVES LETHBRIDGE For Estimates Phone JACK FULLER 328-2515 McDonald and Berenson scored power-play goals within a 47-second span in the second period to give the club a playoff-leading total of 10 power-play goals. Larry Keenan got the other Blues' goal in the third period and Ray Cullen and Barry Gibbs scored for the �� North Stars. "The two power-play goals in the second period made the difference," said Berenson. "How many power-play goals did we have in this series? Ten? That shows how important penalties are. You don't take penalties when you're a man short." The North Stars got in their predicament when Billy Collins was off for tripping. Then, play-ing-coach Charlie Bums was called for delaying the game by touching the puck in front of the Minnesota net with his hands. McDonald scored his second goal, bringing Collins but of the penalty box. But Collins was called for slashing Berenson almost immediately and the St. Louis Red Baron quickly made it 3-1. "In the last" game in St. Louis I could see them weakening," McDonald said about the North Player, Moody Trail Unknown Leads Way NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Gary Player and Orville Moody -familiar names in the golf business-found themselves a stroke behind today in the $125,000 Greater New Orleans Open with a Virginian named Bobby Mitchell leading the way. Mitchell isn't one of golf's top performers. In his fifth year as a touring pro, he's still looking for his first victory and can't be found among this year's 100 leading money winners. He put together a seven-under par 65 Thursday for the opening-round lead in the chase for the $25,000 winner's cheque. But he's got 4. long way to go in the next three days with Player and Moody in the thick of it. Player, who missed a playoff Meets Paduano Cerdan Concerned NEW YORK (CP) - Scorned and ridiculed by his own people, Marcel Cerdan Jr. arrived in New York this week for his much-publicized fight against Canadian welterweight champion Donate Paduano May 11, hoping to gain the prominence of his famous father. WINDSHIELDS BROKEN? Have it replaced now by experts at Lethbrldge Sash & Door! FREE PICK-UP AND DELIVERY OF YOUR CARI LETHBRIDGE Corner 5th Ave., 4th St. S. Phone 327-1581 The elder Cerdan won the world middleweight tittle when he knocked out Tony Zale in the 12th round in Jersey City, N.J., in 1948 and lost it to Jake La-mofcfca when he suffered a shoulder injury during their 1949 fight in Detroit, Mich. He was killed in an airplane crash in the Azores that same year while en route back to the U.S. for a return match with Lamotta. Cerdan's American manager, George Kanter, partly blames a contrast in styles for the boxer's reception by the French people. "His father was physically stronger, but Marcel is a better boxer, although, he's not a puncher," said Kanter. Cerdan said that in France he is. classed as "a stylist-a pre-ciso boxer " WANTS FOLLOW PATH "I am very thrilled to fight in New York," the handsome Cerdan said. "My fervent hope is that I will be accepted in America as he was. "I want to be to the Americans what he was. I want to please them in the ring as he did. I want to make friends with people outside the ring as he did. Despite his impressive undefeated' record of 47 wins and one draw, Cerdan Jr.'s capabilities have always been doubted by his countrymen, who feel he has been fed soft touches in six professional years. Kanter said Cerdan's French manager, Philippe Felippi, "was offered $25,000 for a Mon> treal fight three years ago but burned it down because he felt Cerdan was not ready." berth in the Masters earlier this week, came in among the late finishers with a 66, as did Moody and three others. Fifty-nine golfers finished better than the regulation 72 over the 7,080-yard Lakewood Country Club course. A score of 69 was only good for a 19th-place tie in the opening session. CASPER SLIPS Billy Casper, who whipped Gene littler for the Masters title in a playoff Monday, started well enough with a front-nine 34 but stumbled to a 37 on the back nine for a 71. Also at 71 was' Vancouver's Wayne Vollmer, who took the front nine with 37 and came back on 34. Wiif Homenuik-.of Winnipeg had a 35-38-73 score. The 27-yeairM>ldr' Mitchell; a golf pro since he was 15, said he "always plays good on this course. I just missed by one stroke here last year." Player was making only his sixth start of the season but already has won at Greensboro and rolled up $57,000 in "winnings for fourth place on the money list. Buffey Home By Weekend ST. PAUL, Minn. (CP) - Ian (Scotty) Morrison, the National Hockey L e a g u e's referee-in-chief, said Thursday that senior NHL referee Vera Buffey will be released from hospital here in time to return to his home in Toronto this weekend. Buffey was taken to the hospital when he became ill after working Saturday night's Stanley Cup playoff game between St. Louis Blues and Minnesota North Stars. Following extensive tests, Dr. Gerald Lee, chief of cardiology at the hospital, said Buffey did not suffer a heart attack as first feared. Buffey was scheduled to work Sunday's playoff game between Boston Bruins and the Rangers in New York Sunday and the Minnesota at St. Louis game Tuesday. He was replaced by Bill Friday in New York and by John Ashley in St Louis. Stars. "I think we may have had too much manpower for them. They made a good game out of it and didn't quit until the end but they didn't seem to have the zip." The North Stars, losing out In the sixth game of the playoffs, had squared the series at two games each last weekend after a frantic month of getting into the playoffs. St. Louis took a 3-2 edge in the series .Tuesday with a 6-3 victory in St. Louis. "They were a little tired," said St. Louis coach Scotty Bowman. "We knew we would get the advantage somewhere along the line. "We're tough in the third period when we get two goals ahead." Burns disagreed with Me Donald and Bowman that his team was tired. "They didn't outskate us tonight," said Burns. "We weren't any more tired than they were, The power plays made the difference-it has all year for them. They just moved the puck better. "The situation beat us," Burns said about his penalty in front of the Minnesota net, "You're not supposed to touch the puck but how many times do you see' it?-. You see it hundreds of times: It's a heck of a way to end the season.t' Veteran goalie Glenn Hall, playing in a record 108 playoff games, had an impressive night in the St. Louis nets, stopping 32 shots. Cesare Maniago, who collected the only shutout of the playoffs so far when the North Stars won 4-0 last Sunday night, stopped only 23 shots in taking the loss. ST.

But the New Yorkers appeared to lose their momentum in the second period and On-put the Bruins back in the game with the tying goal on a deflection of Johnny McKenzie's shot. A little more than two minutes later, Cashman picked off Tim Horton's clearing pass to break in alone on Giacomin for the go-ahead goal Orr beat Giacomin with a hard shot from the blue line three minutes into the third period and Sanderson wrapped up the scoring when he knocked in a pass from behind the nets by Eddie Westfall. New York coach Emile Francis removed Giacomin with more than four minutes to go in the game and went with six attackers but the Bruins' persistent checking kept the Rangers at bay. ' Soon after Giacomin came out, Cheevers got control of the puck and charged out of his own goal for a shot at the empty New York nets but the Rangers defence stopped the goalie's attempt to become the first such player to score in playoff action. ORR CONTINUES WAYS Orr, who won the regular National Hockey League season scoring title with 120 points while setting three scoring records for defencemen, has also set a record for defencemen in playoffs. His seven-goal total is two higher than the previous record for a defenceman in one playoff year set by Earl Seibert of the Black Hawks in 1938 and tied by Red Kelly, then of Detroit Red Wings, in 1954. Orr could well break the record of most goals by any player shared by Maurice Richard and Jean BeUveau who each scored 12 goals in a playoff year. Orr's seven goals and three assists makes him the leading points-getter so far in the playoffs along with team-mate Phil Esposito who has six goals and four assists. Orr and Esposito go up against another pair of high-scoring stars in the semi-finals Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita of the Hawks together have collected .16 points in their four games. LAYOFF NOT WORRY Mikita said in Chicago Thursday he wasn't worried about his team's long layoff making them rusty. "I think the team will be able to overcome any difficulties caused by the layoff," he said. "We've been through a lot worse during the season. Anyway, it's all our own fault for winning in four straight." Another interesting encounter m the East Division's final round will be Esposito facing his younger brother Tony, who scored 15 shutouts in the Chicago nets during the regular season.
