Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Flyers must win Barber feels down but hell be there MONTREAL (CP) Rookie Bill Barber will be one of coach Fred Shero's key factors tonight as Philadelphia Flyers try to avoid elimination in ther Stan- ley Cup semi-final series against Montreal Canadiens. The Flyers, down 3-1 in the National Hockey League series, dropped a 4-1 decision to the Canadiens in Philadelphia Sun- day. "I'm Barber said afterward. "But you don't sta down too long. I'll be giving ev erything I have on Tuesda night." Even with a bruised heel, th result of flying into the board Sunday, Barber must be consit ered one of Philadelphia's to threats. A native of Callander, Ont Barber picked up 30 goals an 34 assists this season, his firs in the NHL. ANDY CAPP WAIT RIGWT THERE THE RITUAL MUST BE OBSERVED urst of speed when he reaches he blue line, and with his ac- companying strength can often reel around the defence, chal- enging the goaltender either with his accurate slap shot, wrist shot or backhand. "I use the backhand a lot more now because in the NHL, ou haven't time to fiddle iround with the puck until you have it just where you want." But the six-foot, 190 pounder eels that his biggest break was being teamed with Bobby Clarke, the Flyers scoring sen- ation who netted 37 goals and 7 assists this season. If I'm in Hie Barber aid, "I can be sure every time hat Bobby will have it on my stick. "Bobby Clarke sacrificed ev- for me. Every tune I ooked up I saw the puck. He ust kept feeding me and feed- ing me. What a guy." If the Flyers win tonight, the sixth game of the series will be layed in Philadelphia on Hamo No 7 if ary, will be played in Montreal ither Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. i Tueidoy, April 24, 1973 THE IETHBKIDGE HERALD Violent meeting New York Yankees' Craig Nettles, left, runs into Milwaukee Brewers' catcher Dar- rell Porter Monday as Nettles scored during American League game.

Jets lead series 2-0 Aeros back at home By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Houston Aeros, back on their home ice, will be battling to stay in the World Hockey Asso- ciation playoffs when they meet Winnipeg Jets tonight. The Jets hold 2-p lead in the best-of-seven semi-final series after victories in Winnipeg but Aeros coach Bill Dineen is look- ing for his club to make a comeback. "I still think this is going to be a long Dineen said after the Jets won 2-0 Sunday. "We played really a good game Sunday. I thought we deserved to win." The Aeros, however, face the possible return to full-time duty of Jets centre Chris Bordeleau who saw only spot duty in the first two games after recov- ering from an ankle injury. Bordeleau centres the high- scoring line of player-coach Bobby Hull on the left wing and Norm Beaudin on the right. Meanwhile, Nrw England Whalers also hope for the re- turn of a high-scoring centre- Terry the next game Thursday night against Cleveland Crusaders.

CHICAGO (CP) Emile Francis doesn't necessarily be- lieve changing horses in midst- ream will change the outcome, but he's not adverse to altering game plans. His New York Rangers have taken advantage of the five-day rest between games to juggle lineup combinations in an effort to shake up their effectiveness for what could be a final show- down with Chicago Black Hawks tonight. The Rangers went through an intensive skating program Mon- day at their hideaway on Long Island before flying here where they tangle with the Hawks, trailing three games to one in the National Hockey League best-of-seven semi-final. Francis said the full-scale workouts included eight defen- cemen and five different line combinations. That took some manipulating, and some extra effort by veteran Bobby Rousseau. "Of course I tried him at centre with Steve Vickers and Mike Murphy. Then I tried a line of Tom Williams at centre between Glen Sather and Rousseau. "And Bobby also had a crack or two on the point and filled in on another Francis said. "But there's nothing unusual about that." Rousseau is the type of player regarded as an irregular regu- lar. Besides playing all three forward positions, he also takes a turn on defence if you count the point on the power play. Francis, however, wouldn't commit himself on his starting goaltender for tonight's contest, scheduled for o: 30 p.m. MST. Veteran Eddie Giacomin has played most of the playoff games so far, but Francis, who also doubles as general man- ager; has been known to shake up his team simply by switch- ing goaltenders. His opposite number with the Hawks, Billy Reay, isn't about to switch in far as his goaltender is concerned. Tony Esposito has been noth- ing short of brilliant in the series to date, particularly the three that the Hawks have won. The Calder Trophy winner of 1970. the league's outstanding goalie of the same year who posted a record 15 shutouts, has been the key to Chicago's suc- cess in this year's playoffs. Reay won't admit he's sur- prised at the turn of events that has put the Hawks in a position where they can wind up the series tonight. "Let's just say I'm pleased with the way things have said Reay. But there's no denying his pleasure with the way things have developed since he inserted rookie defen- ceman John Marks at left wing with Stan Mikita and Cliff Ko- roll. "I've had this In mind for quite a Reay said of the move that placed Marks on left wing and demoted Dick Red- mond to spot assignments. "I spotted Marks there a few times to see how he'd do. All those credentials and no job EDMONTON (CP) Bob Bain is job hunting, despite the fact that by the end of the sum- mer he'll hold three degrees, including a master's in phys- ical education. The 25-year-old coach of the University of Alberta Ccldsn Bears basketball team is phi- losophical about his impending unemployment. "You have to stay optimistic, if only to keep your he says. "It woujd be very easy to get pessimistic and say to hell with it." Bain's job at the university was of a temporary nature to begin with. He accepted a one- year deal as coach while regu- lar coach Barry worked on his doctorate at Ohio State University in Colum- bus, Ohio. Mitchelson returns Sept. 1. And Bain loses his job April 30. He's supposed to stick around to get things ready for Mitchel- son's "return. "The whole situation this year was a little said Bain. "I mean, I used his files, his contracts, his office. "I couldn't build anything up myself because I was just a one-year probationary coach." He served his year well, tak- ing a team with moderate tal- ent and turning it into the sixth- ranked team in the country. Yet, he now is looking through trade magazines for a coaching job. Bain has turned up three pos- sibilities: Acadia University in Wolfvffle, N.S., McGill Univer- sity in Montreal and the Unl- of Winnipeg. "I can't see myself working at Acadia for two reasons, bat I applied for the sake of apply- said Bain. "First, the ex 72 77 IS 37 17 JO is Ji; 12 33 19 69 7 TOPS GOAL SCORERS V.W. 77 77 local 7iD 7?
