Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 26, 1974 THE LETHDRIPUE HCHALU Pat Sullivan 1 really do envy young hockey players today. Never have they had so much going for them. And an end to their blessings is far from sight. Money, and oodles of it, is being spent on them. When I was younger the powers that were threw quarters around like they were manhole covers. Nowadays, show some talent and they talk in big five figured salaries, and sometimes six. But my envy is not really with the players in professional ranks. They are getting some of the money stars like Gordie Howe, Maurice Richard and Glenn Hall, to name a few, never earned. More power to them. No, I envy the little guy the minor hockey player just starting out. He is being well-looked after. He can play in organized leagues, has access to the best of equipment, and contrary to some reports, is made a better young man through supervised participation in the game. One need not look much further than the Games City Hockey Schools this summer just to see the concern for the welfare of today's youth. I remember the one and only hockey school we had, if you could call it that, when I was 10 and living in Medicine Hat. Bill Hunter, then the coach of the Medicine Hat Tigers, and the City of Medicine Hat, staged a one-day two-hour clinic. Well, you can imagine what one instructor was able to accomplish with 150 kids nine to 12 years of age. One of the reasons I recall the one-day effort is because I was a standout, much like a sore thumb. I had visions of being a netminder. I had tried it in road hockey with a tennis ball at the outdoor rinks, and looked not too bad, so I was told. Well, the first 17 or 18 shots went past me and Hunter suggested I try defence. To make a long story short, 1 finally wound up at centre ice. I got two shifts during a scrimmage and that was it. "Thanks for coming said Hunter at the end of the session. "We have taken down a number of your names and will be watching you." That was that. The personal touch was missing. No one, I can honestly say, learned anything from that clinic. Nowadays, it's much different! The Games City Hockey School is six days in length at a cost of Included in the price is instruction from qualified hockey people the likes of Stan Maxwell, Hec Negrello, Les Colwill and Bill McDonnell. All told, the schools will employ nine teachers as well as guest instructor Vic Stasiuk. In one day, the boys at the school will get more time than we ever did. Each day will see 2Vz hours of ice for the fellows as well chalk talks and instructional films. Unlike past years, there will be no dryland training. That shouldn't disappoint too many of the fellows. They like the ice time, doing what comes naturally. The school, a project of the City of Lethbridge Community Services under Steve Arisman, and supported by Pepsi-Cola, has an objective. It is hoped that the Games City Hockey School will provide the best hockey instruction available and do so on a cost basis so that every boy who wants to go to hockey school will have the opportunity to do so. And besides all that, they each get a T-shirt and a crest. Why, we even had to bring our own towels and there weren't even shower facilities. Violence is down TORONTO (CP) The president-elect of the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) said Wednesday the incidence of violence is low in OHA junior, intermediate and senior leagues. Cliffe Phillips said he knows of only eight incidents in which there was a deliberate attempt to injure another player in the games played by the three leagues this season. "That's eight too many, I readily agree, but games involving 30 players a game works out to people who could create an incident." He calculated there were .022 attempts to injure per players and, he said, "you could find that many in the local poolhall." Phillips said the OHA has just completed a second season of clinics for coaches and referees which were designed to keep down the violent aspects of hockey.

(Quntmlih) Giacomin gives Flyers' Saleski a shot back of the net Referee Bryan Lewis thought circus had been held over By AL McNEIL NEW YORK (CP) Each year at this time, New York Rangers and the circus are co- occupants of Madison Square Garden. Referee Bryan Lewis might have thought he wandered into a holdover performance of the show after Thursday night's National Hockey League Stanley Cup playoff game. During New York Rangers' 5-3 win over Philadelphia Flyers, officials probably felt at times they would have been better off taking their chances with the animal acts that preceded the third game of the best-of-seven semi-final. The New York win sends the Rangers into Sunday's fourth game at the Garden trailing the Flyers 2-1. Sunday's game, starting at 12 noon, MDT, will be televised nationally by the CBC and by CTV in the Toronto area. Lewis issued 108 minutes in penalties. 81 minutes to the Flyers. The Philadelphia total included HI" minutes to left winger Dave Schultz. But the teams didn't set a single-game penalty record for playoff competition. That mark is 174 minutes set here April 11, 1970, in a game won 4-3 by New York against Boston Bruins. Schultz, who set. a regular- season record tliis year with minutes, is approaching an individual playoff record of 80 minutes picked up by former left winger John Ferguson of Montreal Canadiens in 14 games in 19fi9. Schultz now is one minute shy of Ferguson's mark, but has picked up his 79 minutes in seven games. The Rangers needed third- period goals by defenceman Rrad Park and right, winger Rod Gilbert to win. Gilbert also assisted on tsvo goals to help the Rangers come from behind a 31 deficit- midway through the almost-tame second period. Centre Rick MacLeish, with his eighth goal of the playoffs, and defenceman Andre Dupont, gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead in the first period. FAIRBAIRN SCORES But Bill Fairbairn scored for the Rangers before the first period ended. Philadelphia made it 3-1 at of the second when Rod Sailing deflected Gary Dornhoefer's shot from the side of the net into his own goal with his stick, surprising goalie Ed Giacomin who had moved to cover the corner of the net. However, before the period ended, Steve Vickers and Vic Hadfield made it 3-3, setting the scene for the third-period goals by Park and Gilbert. Some indication of the play could be found in the shots on goal, where the Rangers, out- played in 4-0 and 5-2 losses in the first two games, bombarded netminder Bernie Parent with 39 shots. Giacomin stopped 12 shots. Coach Emile Francis of the Rangers, was asked if he NY RANGERS 5, PHILADELPHIA 3 Firtt period 1. Philadelphia, MacLeish 8 (Clarke) 2. Philadelphia, Dupont 2 (Clarke) 3.

"If that's the way you have to play to win it, that's the way you have to Francis said. "I thought the referee, under the circumstances kept things under pretty good control. "You could have just about bet that's the kind of hockey game it was going to be. He (referee) had a tough game to handle and he stood up very well." The Flyers dressed quickly and headed for their bus which was parked inside the garage on the lower level of the Gar- den. The door to the garage was kept locked and the bus escaped the building without incident. Outside about 30 youths chased it down the street shouting obscenities as it rolled off. Before either team could manage any scoring, the fire- works were already under way. Schultz picked up a double minor for roughing and charg- ing Park. Then the two came up swinging and Lewis gave them each majors for fighting. Schultz refused to go to the penalty box and before he did he picked up a 10- minute misconduct. Bus brought inside New York Gardens By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK (CP) "We didn't run at everybody in said defenceman Brad Park. "We didn't start the fights, we participated in them." Park scored the winning goal in the third period to lead New York Rangers to a 5-3 triumph over Philadelphia Flyers in a wild National Hockey League Stanley Cup playoff game Thursday night. The Flyers lead the best-of-seven semi-final series 2-1. The Flyers drew 81 of the 108 minutes in penalties with Dave Schultz getting 31 minutes. "I don't know what they were trying to said coach Emile Francis of the Rangers. The win snapped a six-game playoff winning streak for Philadelphia. CREDITS FORECHECKING Francis credited improved forechecking for the victory after two losses in Philadelphia, 4-0 and 5-2. When the Rangers needed to be physical, Francis said he always had Ron Harris to "fall back on." "Harris was ready and willing. That's what he was out there for." The crowd of more than booed the Flyers and littered the ice around Flyer goalie Bernie Parent late in the third period. Extra security guards were posted throughout Madison Square Garden and the Flyers' chartered bus was brought inside'to prevent any incidents involving fans and Philadelphia players. The Flyers got away safely. "We didn't deserve to Win the way we said Bobby Clarke, the Flyer captain. "Maybe they didn't let us play better, or play our own game. Four of the goals came on power plays two by each side. GOES BACK The Flyers haven't won on Garden ice since Christmas, 1968. But Bobby said nobody on the club was thinking about that. Clarke said that because of the penalties, the Flyers started playing defensive hockey and got into a rut. "We couldn't get anything going." Clarke said Parent kept the Rangers from running up the score, and credited the goalie with saving at least five potential Ranger goals. Parent had 34 saves to 12 for his counterpart, Eddie Giacomin.
