Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednwdoy, April 18, 1973----------------- Try new techniques learned in series Soviets copy Team ANDY CAPP MOSCOW (AP) When the Soviet Union swept undefeated to the world hockey champion- ship, there echoes of last year's Soviet-Canada series on the ice and off. In one game, defender Alex- ander Gusev fired a slapshot from the blushne at the Czech- oslovakian goal and Boris Mik- hailov, stationed in the slot in front of the goal like a Russian Phil Esposito, tipped the puck with his stick and it flew into the net. Russian forwards, :nore than ever before, dumped the puck into the corners of the rink and then chased after it in Canadian style rather than setting up an intricate series of passes culmi- nating in a shot on the goal. Some Russian fans even started -waving Soviet banners in the stands to lead cheers. That was in contrast to the Sep- tember Canadian series when the outnumbered visitors man- aged to outshout the Russian fans. And schoolchildren artists, in a series of hockey paintings that hung in the Sports Palace, turned in a dozen pictures deal- ing with the Soviet-Canadian series Rival coaches such as Len Lunde of Finland and Kjell Sev- SALESMAN OF THE MONTH! We ore pleased to an- nounce Brian Franz has earned the distinction of salesman of the month for March. We congratu- late him on this fine achievement. BRIAN FRANZ Fleming Motors Ltd. Cor. 7th St. and 1st Ave S. Ph. 327-1591 ensson of Sweden there no doubt the Snvirt team had been helped by the Cana- dian series. Victorious coach Vsevolod Bobrov indicated his players had benefited from eight games with the Cana- dians, who had four wins and a tie in the series. Ccach Vladimir Kostka of Czechoslovakia said the "strong combat with the Canadians" he'ped the Soviet coaches make a "complete overhaul of tin team." He didn't mean that the So- viets now were copying the Ca- nadians, but that the Canadian games had made the Soviet players even better. What could be seen in the So- viet play was that there was more shooting by defcrtT-men from the point near the blue- line. D3fenders were attacking more and there was more- vanety to the Soviet play. Most experts did not detect any ma- jor change in Soviet hockey style, but there were some added touches learned in the Canadian series It should be noted that tiie So- viets crushed outnianncd teams like West Gsrmany and Poland and had little trouble with the Finns or Swedes in running up a 10-0 record in the to rnrment tnat ended Sunday. Even against the Czzz'as, who dropped to third place, the So- viet seemed always to have the game well in hand and able to keep up the unrelenting pres sure that caused opponents to crumple in the end. USED MORE MUSCLE Some who have watched a lot of Soviet hockey, thought per- haps the Soviets did use a bit more muscle m the cuuiers of the area where they had bsen outplayed by the Ca- nadians COME 'ERE!

The win left Broncos trailing 3-2 in the best- of-seven series.

But needy all his criticisms cf team management are false, the brass cf the National Hockey League club contended Tuesday at a news conference cf thsir own at Olympia Sta- dium. Asked if he believed most of Wilson's at a Monday news false, general manager Ned Hadcness said: "I'd definitely say that" Among the Wilson criticisms denied, or at least explained from an opposite viewpoint, were that: Executive Vice President Jim Bishcp, and other management personnel ers bomb LETHBRIDGE ELKS AND THE LETHBRIDGE Ml Present their 1st Annual... By THE CANADIAN PRESS Saskatoon Blades will have the advantage of a good rest when they start play in the Western Canada Hockey League final after winning the Eastern Division title Tuesday in shut- out style. They defeated Flin Flon continually interfered with Wil- son's coaching duties: was never able to talk freely to owner Bruce Norris about his job; Wings played to their potential, and Harkness over- sold their capabilities; aren't enough pros- pects in the farm system; and Bishop were upset that some players grew moustaches; didn't have the final say on anything. AGREE ON SOME Some Wilson statements were accurate, to a point, according to the Wings' brass. Among them: superstar Gordie Howe, a team vice president, wasn't consulted on the Wilson firing or mast ciher hockey matters; suggested captain Alex Delvecchio be spot played; scouts watched Wings' practices and advised Wilson what to do afterwards; wanted a "yes" man as coach. blasted Wilson over the phone for giving the team Thanksgiving Day cff. Harkness acknowledged hav- ing meetings with Wilson "most every but said they were just to give him advice and as- sess situations. "At no time did anybody from Mr. Norris on down, tell him what players to bench or net he said, denying a spe- cific Wilson claim. "He had carte blanche treatment from Mr. Norris to do whatever he wanted."

Detroit finished with a 37-29- 12 record for fifth in the East, missing the playoffs by two points behind Buffalo Sabres on the last day of the season. But the 86 points in league "stand- ings was more than the total amassed by six of the last nine Wings teams that made the playoffs. Detroit, which has been in the playoffs once in the last seven years, has had five coaches since 1969. It had only five be- fore that dating to its first sea- son, 1926-27. Wilscn said the Wings had players capable cf finishing with 84 or 86 points and no higher. AIMED TOO LOW "John Wilson would have been satisfied with fourth place and had set as an objective 84 to 86 said the club statement. "Management be- lieved and does believe that this objective was too low." 1 in Madeline Hat the Ti- gers bombed Edmonton Oil Bangs 8-1 to tie the Western Di- final 2-2 That best-of- scven series will need at least two more games before the vic- tor is decided.
