Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April ?i, i9 But they still won Statistics show Hawks outplayed Dance for joy A happy Dennis Hull (10) jumps into the arms of Chicago Black Hawks' teammate Jim Pappin (8) after Hull scored his fifth NHL playoff goal Thursday. The goal, Hull's second of the game, gave the Black Hawk's a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers and a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven semi-final.

NORTON GETS NOD NEW YORK (AP) .en Norton, who broke Muhammad Ali's jaw and upset the former world heavyweight champion March 31, is the March winner in the Hickok poll for profes- sional athlete of the year. Nate Archibald, leading scorer with Kansas City Omaha in the National Basketball Associa- tion, placed second. NEW YORK (CP) Statis- tics don't mean all that much in the National Hockey League. The only one that counts is the score. Take Thursday night when Chicago Black Hawks tripped New York 3-1 to take a com- manding 3-1 lead over the Rangers in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final. The Hawks didn't get a shot on goal until of the first period. Rangers held an over-all advantage of 39-21 in the game. New York took 17 of 21 faceoffs in the opening period and 50 to 76 in the game. Yet they lost. Chicago played sound posi- tional hockey, holding the New Yorkers to a minimal number of dangerous thrusts at goalten- der Tony Esposito and counter- ing with fast breaks that caught the Rangers up ice. GOALIE IS KEY It's been that way for New York through the serfes. Esposito had a bad start, blowing at least two goals in a 4-1 New York victory in the first game at Chicago. But in the next three outings he's been the key stopper and the Hawks have been the opportunists. Dennis Hull, with two, and Pit Martin scored Thursday for Chicago, Martin's goal coming minutes after Vic Hadfield had put New York on equal terms early in the third period. "But don't get ready to count them says Hawk centre Ralph Backstrom. "There's no way he (Ranger coach Emile Francis) is going to let them roll over and die. "There's no question but that they outplayed us. The result cculd just as easily have gone in their favor except for Tony 0. He's been super, the differ- ence in this playoff." WATT FOD BREAKS Hull, who has scored four of his five playoff goals against the Rangers, agreed that New York carried the play and that Esposito is the reason Chicago has a stranglehold on the series with two of the next three scheduled games in Chicago. "We play a defensive game, waiting for the Hull said. "And Tony has been unbe- lievable. "But don't think that it's over yet. They're too good a team." The fifth game, and what could be curtains for New York, is in Chicago Tuesday starting at p.m. EST. Francis had little to say of the setback that left New York in the position of having to win the next three games. "It could be an early sum- he admitted. "We've always been in a posi- tion where we've had to come back.'' added captain Hadfield. "It's been the same all year." He referred to the Rangers' high rating at the start of the DONT JUST DREAM ABOUT IT! SEE THE EXPERTS AT MINUTE INSTALLATIONS 3rd Ave. and 4th St. S. Ph. 327-8888 Open daily 8 e m. Jo 6 p n. Canucks sidelined PENTICTON. B.C. (CP) Penticton Broncos thrash e d Calgary Canucks 6-2 Thursday to win the best-of-seven Cen- tennial Cup quarter final jun- ior hockey series 4-1. Penticton will play Portage la Prairie here Sunday and Tuesday in the first two games of a best-of-seven semi-final series. Penticton led 3-1 at the end of the first period and the teams played through a score- less second period. Chad Campbell led the Broncos with two goals Dan Ashman. Bob Nicholson, Grant MuJvey and Mike Hieficld added singles. Jim Patenaude and Mark Lomenda scored for Calgary. Calgary outehot Penticton 46- 31. Penticton drew seven of 12 minor pcnaUies. Each team had three fighting majors and 1972-73 campaign in which they were touted to replace Boston Bruins atop the East Division. A series of crippling injuries, most notably to defencemen Brad Park, Jim Neilson and Rod Seiling and Hadfield, left the Rangers baHling the Bruins for second behind Montreal Ca- nadiens. The Bruins hung on for second with a late-season surge. Hadfield, who suffered a con- cussion late in the season when struck by a puck, admitted after Thursday's game he's had a playoff slump. "I've only started to come around in the last he said. "I've .still not got my strength back. "Hopefully this five-day rest will help us 'all straighten out whatever is wrong with the club."

And now that he has cracked the lineup, Montreal coach Scotty Bowman may have hard time relegating the young defenceman back to a spectator role. Robinson was in the lineup here Thursday night when the Canadiens downed Philadelphi; Flyers 2-1 in the third game o their best-of-seven Nationa Hockey League semi-final seres. It was Robinson's overtime goal that had earned the Cana diens a 4-3 decision in overtime of the second game last Tues day in Montreal. The series resumes here Sun day afternoon at 1 p.m. MST with the Canadiens trying for their third win in four starts And unless there is a market improvement in a groin injury suffered by veteran Jacques Laperriere, Robinson shoulc face the Flyers again. MACLEISH RECOVERS The fourth game will be tele- vised nationally in Canada b> the CBC and across the United States by the NBC. The Flyers expect to have Rick MacLeish back in the lineup Sunday after the high- scoring centre sat out Thurs- day's game with a bout of tonsi- litis. Flyers general manager Keith Allen said Friday night: "His temperature is down and it looks like he'll be in action Sunday." In Thursday night's game, the Canadiens won on the strength of first-period goals by centres Rejsan Houle and Henri Rich- ard, while the Flyers' lone marksman was centre Terry Crisp, who beat goalie Ken Dry- den midway in the second pe- riod. Dryden and Philadelphia goalie Doug Favell each faced 26 snots in a game played in a steam-bath atmosphere before a capacity crowd of 16.600 in the Spectrum. Richard's goal was bis third of the playoffs, while left- winger Frank Mahovlich gained his 100th career playoff point when he assisted on Richard's goal. Bowman said after Thurs- day's victory that it appeared highly unlikely that Lapcnriere would return for the Sunday game. He said he had been very pJcsscd with Robinson's play against the Flyers and would not hesitate to use him again.

His recall from the AHL club came about after Pierre Bouchard suffered a hand injury. Robinson, a native of Metcalf, Ont, got into the playoffs when he dressed in place of left- winger Marc Tardif for the sixth game of the quarter-final series against Buffalo Sabres. He saw little action against Buf- falo but found himself in the thick of things Tuesday in Mon- treal when defenceman Serge Savard was forced to sit out a large portion of the first period with a cut lip.
