Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 TUB IITHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 19, 1973----------------------------------------- Francis feels victory a must for Rangers Favell has been playing with bad back PHILADELPHIA fCP) A pair of veteran defencemen could play a large part in tonight's third game of the best- of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final round between Wnnfeal Cana- diens and Philadelphia flyers. One, lanky Jacques Lap- erriere of the Canadiens, may miss all or part of the contest, while the of the be able to take a regular turn and help bolster the Philadelphia blueline corps. Tne series is tied 1-1 after games in Montreal Saturday and Tuesday nights. Both were decided in the first period of overtime. The Flyers won the opener 5-4 on a goal by centre Rick Mac- Leish. while the Canadiens took the second game 4-3 on a goal by rookie defenceman Larry Robinson. Ironically, Robinson had been used to replace the ailing Laperriere, Lap erriere was forced to re- tire after the second period of Tuesday's game because of the pain from a recurring groin in- jury. Hillman. 34. and now with his fourth National Hockey League club, was used soar- ingly in last Saturday nieht's opener and watched Tuesday's game from the bench. Montreal coach Scotty Bow- man said it would not be known until late today whether the 31- year-old Laperriere. now in his 10th full season with the Cana- diens, will play in tonight's game, scheduled for 6 p.m. BIST. On the other hand Phila- delphia coach Fred Shero Wednesday welcomed the news that Hillman, who appeared in 74 regular season games for the Flyers, again was fit for full- time duty. Hillman had been sidelined by recurrent muscle spasms in his back. "Wayne told me today he's ready to play full time and that's good Shero said. "Maybe with Hillman back, I can dress six defencemen.'' Shero said he had played only four defencemen on a regular Ed Van Impe, Joe Watson. Barry Ashbec and Andre Dupont doing most of the work. He used rookie defen- ceman Tom Bladon for spot and power play duty in the first two games against the Canadiens. But while Shero had a posi- tive comment to make ?.bout Hillman, he was non-committal on goalie Doug Favell and right-winger Bill Flctt. Favell has been playing with a sore back, although no one in the Philadelphia organization will say to what extent the in- jury exists. Flett, who scored a goal against Canadiens Tuesday night, has played for the last two months, wearing a special brace to support an injured leg. "I thought Flett skated better than he has in the last three weeks in Montreal Tuesday Shero said. "As for Fa- veil, I never ask him if he's O.K., lie never tells me, and he looked like his back was a lot better." In the meantime the Chicago j Black Hawks and New York Rangers may be looking beyond tonight's key matchup in their SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan lyiUHAJIMAD ALI is down. But will he stay for the count? Some experts say, it is too early to bury Muhammad Ali the boxer. He has been too full of the unpredictable, the unconventional.

How could you like him? A brazen, big mouth. But oh, what talent came with that tongue. He took Sonny Listen, in eight rounds the first time and in one the next. His last fight with the late Liston is still debated by many sup- porters of the square ring. The cry fix was on millions of lips.

"But, in the ring, the mind and the body have to together and an era ended. Ali's magic died yes- terday." Cosall, Red Smith of New York Times Service and Mil- ler, to name a few, made known their obituaries before the reports showed Ali's jaw to be broken in the first round of the 12-round fight.
