Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Pesky Philadelphians all over New Yorkers in one-sided encounter Monday, April zz, i ne LC i nnmuwit Aggressive Flyers outclass Rangers 4-0 in opener PHILADELPHIA Aggressiveness has been the key to success fur Philadelphia Flyers in National Hockey League play this season. That characteristic was never more evident than on Saturday night when the West Division champions out- classed New York Rangers 4-0 here in the first game of their Stanley Cup semi-final. The second game of the best-of-seven series is scheduled here Tuesday at p.m. MST. While the Flyers were creating havoc in the New York end with their hitting, forechecking and harassment of New York goalie Ed Giacomin, Bernie Parent earned his first shutout in 21 NHL playoff games. The Flyers made life miser- able for Giacomin, buzzing through and around his crease and trapping him when he wandered away from his net. TWO FOR MacLEISH Rick MacLeish scored for the Flyers in tue first and again in the tnird period, bringing his playoff total to six. Ross Lonsberry and Bill Barber scored goals 52 seconds apart in the second period. The Flyer forechecking tac- tics limited the Rangers to seven shots on goal in the first two periods. The- game was 13 minutes old when Parent made his first save. "The first two periods I thought our forechecking was said Parent. "That's the only way to stop their (New York's) them before they can get started." "We knew if we didn't check them and hit them, we weren't going to win by said Flyer captain Bobby Clarke. "So that's what we had to do." The Flyers made their game plan clear in the opening minutes of the game. RAN OVER PARK Left winger Dave Schultz ran over New York's Brad Park, then hit defenceman Dale Rolfe and Bill Fairbairn before drawing a roughing penalty at of the first period. The game was only 90 sec- onds old when Clarke and Philadelphia defenceman Andre Dupont flattened Ranger Walt Tkaczuk along the boards. Tkaczuk, apparently stunned by the collision, returned to the New York bench in the second period but didn't play again. Clarke said he hit the Ranger when his own man. Dupont, ran into him, sending him crashing into Tkaczuk. Right winger Gary Dornhoefer picked up three assists for the Flyers and bothered Giacomin all night, stationing himself at the edge of the crease. On Lonsberry's goal, he checked away Giacomin's stick when the New York goalie wandered behind his 'net. Giacomin, who claimed Barber held him on Shadowing Esposito didn't help it just left Bucyk alone to score BOSTON (CP) You can't let the air out of Boston Bruins' power play just by bottling up Phil Esposito. Sunday afternoon Chicago paid so much attention to Esposito when the Bruins had a manpower edge that they left Johnny Bucyk free to score three power-play goals to help Boston down the Black Hawks 8-6. The win tied the best-of- seven Stanley Cup semi-final 1-1 Third game in the National Hockey League playoff is Tuesday in Chicago. "They just left me open on the power play the 38- year-old winger said. "But if they start watching me, then they're going to leave Phil open." Bucyk tied Stanley Cup records for the most power- play goals by a player in a game and most (two in the first period) by a player in a single period. Gilles Gilbert pounces on a loose puck against Black Hawks Perry throws forkball BOSTON Does he or doesn't he? That was the question Saturday as veteran right-hander Gaylord Perry of Cleveland Indians privately demonstrated his forkball for the American League. Perry did his act in the right field bullpen in empty Fenway- Park before the Indians" baseball game against Boston Red Sox. He was out to prove that what appears to be an illegal spitball pitch actually is a forkball In a cloak-and-dagger at- mosphere, catcher Dave Dun- can crouched behind the plate Veteran umpire Nestor Chylaak took his position. Around them were Dick But- ler, the league's supervisor of umpires, and two members of his staff, former umpires Hank Soar and John Stevens. Perry, author of a book on how he threw the spitter in past years, was warned by home plate umpire Marty Springstead about using the illegal pitch in the opening game of the season against New York Yankees. Under a rule adopted this season, um- pires now used judgment on whether a pitcher throws a spitter. Cleveland manager Ken As- promonte asked for the dem- onstration in an attempt to prove that Perry's forkball "is better than average and umpires should be aware of it." Aspromonte and Perry say the pitcher does not use the alleged longer. Perry threw 25 to 30 pitches. Perry employed his entire repertoire of ex- cept the spitter. In fact, he didn't even wipe his forehead or go behind his ear one time. "It's very possible his fork ball could be mistaken for a spitter. but he didn't fool said Soar "A spitter comes down like it's rolling off a table, but the fork ball comes in and down. "What did he show: He showed that he's got good stuff and doesn't need any- thing else." "I didn't see anything I haven't seen before." Butier said. "I would say. based on what he threw today, there is nothing wrong, nothing ille- gal. However, it's still sn the opinion of the umpire who's working the game." What's New In Trillcring from...

"The thing is, when they start putting a cover on both of us, then we just change things explains Bucyk. "Espo moves into the corners and I move out (into the Both teams were ready to take advantage of the extra- man advantage in Sunday's game. Their six power-play goals tied another playoff record es- tablished by Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens in 1939 and equalled by Boston in a 10-0 sweep of Toronto Maple Leafs in 1969. The 14 goals was one shy of another goals by both teams, set by Chicago and Montreal during the 1973 final It was not a good day for goal tenders. "I played admitted Chicago's Tony Esposito. He faced 35 shots compared to the 48 he saw in last Thursday's 4- 2 Black Hawks win in the series opener. Gilles Gilbert, who showed a weakness for shots low to his stick side in the first two games of the series, said he's got to work on his game. "I've got to work harder, es- pecially in practice, and con- centrate on all the he said The young Boston goaltender had few shots in the first game that should have given him difficulty but still lost. He fanned on several of Sunday's six, reluctantly admitting he wasn't ready. A glaring error by the youngster in the third period with Boston ahead 8-5 led to Chicago's sixth goal and drew (he wrath ot coach Bep Guidolin and upset defenceman Carol Vadnais. After recovering the puck behind the net on a play which would have been whistled down as either offside or icing, he put it on the stick of Chicago winger Jim Pappin. HAWKS AROUSED Pappin had only to slide it to John Marks, who scored into an empty net. The goal aroused the Hawks and they pressed for the rest of the game.

He said he hadn't, but that he had requested aid from referee Wally Harris in an effort to clear some of the Flyers from his crease.

"You have to give Phila- delphia credit because they played a perfect said New York coach Emile Francis. "But don't forget we're just coming off a tough six-game series against (Montreal) Canadiens and now we're going to get some days off to recuperate."
