Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdnesday, April 25, 1973 'He teas the best player in the series', says Shero Flyers tip their hats to Henri Richard TZattle wound Captan Henri Richard of Montreal Canadiens was dipped for eight stitches when he stopped a shot off the stick of teammate Larry Robinson. Richard came back to score the winner as the Habs dumped Philadelphia Fly- ers 5-3 to win the best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final 4-1. How long will Mr. Garvin last? DETROIT (AP) Ted Gar- vip. new coach of Detroit Red Wings, is being likened to Man- ager Billy Martin of baseball's Detroit Tigers. But, he says with a smile, "I could probably hit a ball better that Billy Martin can shoot a puck." Garvin, a short, stout native of Sarnia, Ont., had a chance many years ago to become a professional baseball player. In- stead, he turned pro in hockey. "I guess I made the right de- cision." he said Tuesday after attaining what he said was a lifelong ambition, being named coach of the Red Wings of the National Hockey League. Table tennis tourney set for Cardston A Southern Alberta Table Tennis Tournament will be staged at the E. T. Wood Jun- ior High School in Cardston Saturday. Entry forms will be limited to players only in the area which formed the 1972 Southern Al- berta Summer Games. Three divisions will be fea- tured in the one-day event and players will be placed accord- ing to playing ability and not age groups. The tourney will be open to aQ age groups and each player will be assessed a registration fee. It should also be noted that players should be prepared to stay the whole day since each player witll be required to play all the participants in their res- pective division. Action will get under way at a.m. Players should wear dark tipper clothing and have their own running shoes and bats. Garvin, 47, 'was a shortstop who once tried out with Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics during a spring training camp. He still keeps close tabs on baseball and says of Martin: "He's my kind of manager- fiery as hell and wants to win." For skeptics who don't be- lieve any pro coach or manager can be as fiery as Martin, there are numerous examples of Gar- vin's temper displays while in the International Hockey League. For the last five years the ro- tund Garvin has been coach of the IHL franchise in Port Hu- Red Wings farm the last three years. He was suspended several times in his first four years, and this year he was sus- pended twice, totalling five games. ADMITS TEMPER "My temper? I've got Garvin said after his announce- ment as Red Wings coach. "I know there are some things I can't do in the National Hockey League. When they (refs) make a bad call at me I'm going to be mad, and they'll know I'm mad. "There's no doubt there'll be times I get my wrist slapped. I'll be looking forward to it." Garvin played hockey as a youth in Sarnia and Point Ed- ward, Ont He turned pro in 1939 with the Detroit organ- ization. He spent two seasons with Indianapolis and two with St. Louis and Philadelphia of the American Hockey League. In 1948 Garvin returned to Sarnia and played Senior A hockey. He became the team's coach midway through the sea- son and guided it to the Ontario finals-losing to Owen Sound in seven games for the Allan Cup. Garrin coached a Sarnia team to the Ontario Hockey As- sociation Junior B champion- ship in 1950-51. After a nine-year absence from hockey, he coached a midget team and then, after coaching two more Samia teams to OHA Junior B titles, became the reola cement in 1969 for departed Port Huron coach Jerry Toppazini. MONTREAL (CP) For a few seconds Tuesday night, Henri Richard, the little captain of Montreal Canadiens and Dave Schultz. the rugged winger of Philadelphia Flyers stood face-to-face near centre ice at the Forum. They exchanged a few words and then Richard tapped Schultz with his stick as each took his own route following the Canadiens 5-3 win over the Fly- ers which gave Montreal the best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi- final 4-1. "He just tolH nne he .thought I played a helluva Rich- ard said in the Canadiens' dressing room when quizzed by reporters on the brief exchange. Schultz was not the only one who held that opinion on Rich- ard, who scored the game-win- ning goal for Montreal with less than eight minutes to play in the third period. Marc Tardif, Jacques Le- maire, Frank Mahovlich and Yvan Cournoyer scored the other Montreal goals. The Fly- ers' marksTnen ware Ross Lon- sberry, Bill Flett and Simon No- lef. WAS BEST "He was the best player In the commented Flyers' coach Fred Shero. "He led the a-lded Montreal coach Scotty Bowman. "There's no question that he was our leader. It's unbeliev- able how he can play so well." But this past National Hockey League season was not entirely happy for Richard. During some parts of the first half, he spent a great deal of time rid- ing the Montreal bench. In Vancouver in late Novem- ber, he was involved in a face- slapping incident with team- mate Serge Savard after the two became involved in a heated argument over whether to allow reporters into the Mon- treal dressing room. There was talk after that in- cident that Richard might quit the team, but fortunately for Bowman and the Canadiens he stayed on and has played a big role in Montreal's advancement in the current post-season activ- ities. "I wanted to finish the sea- Richard said. "There's no way I wanted to quit. When you don't feel good, you think about things such as retirement. Some guys think about it and don't say ainything. but I do." Richard did not say whether he plans to play another year. Rather, he preferred to talk aboot the play Savard made on the game winner. "Serge went around the de- fence and gave the puck to Frank. Frank couldn't control it so he gave it back to Serge. I broke for the net as soon as Serge got the puck back. The defenceman was standing still there." BETTER AFTER HIT Despite the fact he got the game-winner, Richard felt he played his "worst game of the playoffs." "I thought my timing was off in the first two periods. I played better in the last period after I got said the Mon- treal captain, referring to an eight-stitch cut he took on the right side of the head after being hit by a shot from team- mate Larry Robinson. The teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the opening period and 2-2 going into the final 20 minutes of regulation time. Flett put the Flyers ahead at of the third period when Montreal goalie Ken Dryden ac- cidently cleared the puck against the side of his net in- stead of behind it and Flett scooped it up and dumped it into the empty net. Fourteen seconds later, Ma- hovlich blazed a shot from just outside the Flyers' blueline which got past Favell to tie the score, selling the stage for Richard's winner at and Ccurnoyer's insurance goal 95 seconds later. Canadiens fired a total of 34 shots at Favell while Dryden R.

Shots on by Philadelphia 5 I 7-20 Montreal 14-34 Backstrom all excited about meeting Canadiens CHICAGO (CP) "Great, just said Ralph Backstrom after learning Chi- cago Black Hawks will open the Stanley Cup finals Sunday against Montreal Canadiens, the team that traded him away two years ago. "It's going to be a big chal- lenge for me going back to Montreal playing for another team in the Stanley Cup said the centre after Chicago knocked over New York Rangers 4-1 Tuesday night to capture the National Hockey League semi-finals four games to one. The Hawks were led by Stan Mikita's two goals while Dennis Hull, who continued his hot scoring pace, and Cliff Koroll added the other Chicago scores. Rod Gilbert tallied for the Rangers in the final minute of the second period to cut into Chicago's 2-0 lead. Hull, who also picked up three assists, now has scored in his last six games and tops the post-season point race with 17 points in 10 games. "They're all tough at this stage of the the heavy- shooting left winger said of his goals. "They feel pretty good though." SHADOWED RATELLE Chicago coach Billy Reay em- ployed Backstrom to shadow Ranger centre Jean Ratelle in the series and the ex-Canadien did an effective job on New York's No. 1 scoring threat. Ratelle had only one goal and three assists in the series. Backstrom's shadow job on Ratelle also helped nullify the efforts of Vic Hadfield and Rod Gilbert, Ratelle's linemates. The former Calder trophy winner, as the NHL's out- standing rookie, looks forward to the best-of-seven final with Montreal with a touch of re- venge. "Naturally when you play against a team that traded you, you want to work a little said the 35-year-old native of Kirkland Lake, Ont. "But Chicago has really im- pressed me since I came here." He ,was traded to Chicago from Los Angeles Kings late in February. "I've been telling the guys from Game lr that this team can go all the way. "Boy, they really must be starting to believe it now." The Hawks were listed as un- derdogs to start the semi-final with New York after the Rangers easily disposed of the defending Cup champion Boston Bruins in the opening round. They didn't improve their im- age when goaltender Tony Es- posito blew a couple of goals as New York opened the round with an easy 4-1 victory here. But Esposito was invincible in the follow-up games and the Rangers fell victim to per- sistent Chicago forechecking paced by centres Backstrom, Pit Martin and Mikita. "We fell into the habit of fall- ing said Ranger coach Emile Francis. "We came into a dry spell and there was nothing you could do about it." Francis gave full credit to Hull's effort in the series. "I haven't seen him skate better any time since he came into the league. He was really moving." Of New York's inability to move on top in any of the four games Chicago swept after los- ing the series opener, Francis said: "They could play a defen- sive game. Local boxers enter finals Four members of the Leth- bridge Amateur Boxing Club will travel to Calgary for the Alberta boxing finals Saturday. The official weigh-ins will be staged between 9-1 a.m. at the Downtown Lions in Calgary while the actual fights will be held at the Western Canadian High School from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Local fighters taking part In the provincial championships include Wayne Soenea, Charlie Prongua, Conrad Sincsnnes and Carmen Rinke. "At no time in the last three or four games did they have to open up. We were always one goal down having to catch up." Francis said if Chicago em- ploys a similar type of game in the finals, "they can beat any- body." "If they play like that in the next said Ranger de- fenceman Jim Neilson, "Mon- treal's in real trouble." In addition to Hull, Francis said "their defence and their checking were superb." "It was a case that we didn't score. It's as simple as that. Their defence played real solid hockey." Chicago coach Billy Reay, who said he never was sur- prised at Chicago's success with the Rangers, expected tougher series with Montreal. "They (Canadiens) have more depth, probably the best in professional Reay said. "I think we're going to have to skate much better than we did against New York. "After all, we're going against a team that lost only 10 games all season." Three of those setbacks were adminis- tered by Chicago. Mikita, who scored on two picture-play efforts with Ranger defenders hanging over him, said he didn't think the five-day rest between games hurt either club. The teams hadn't played since last Thursday in order to allow the ether semi-final be- tween Montreal and Phila- delphia Flyers to get even. The Canadiens ''wrapped iro that series in five games Tuesday night. "This waiting business Is said the veteran Hawk centre. "I don't think waiting till Sunday to start the finals is going to unset either of the teams involved." CHICAGO t, NY RANGERS 1 First Period 1.

Bantam "A" Reps alive in the "A" section of the Kam- loops International Invitational Bantam Hockey Tournament Tuesday morning.

His game winning goal came after blocking a slap shot and skating in alone, to beat the Kamloop's netminder. Lethbridge, who trailed 4-1 at one point of the game, also re- ceived two-goal performances from Keith Miyashiro and Scott Jarvie. Doug Bowersock managed a hat-trick in a losing cause while [Tom Watal added a single.
