Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Sabres help Crozier to his first shutout Pressure has been building for Meelian By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Assuming captaincy of a National Hocfeey League club can be a burden at any time. But when that club is floundering, the load is that much more dif-fiailt. Sid Smith discovered ft during the 1950s when Toronto Maple Leafs were permanent playoff outcasts. The pressures finally forced him into an early retire-ment Young Gerry Meehan is faced with the same pressures this year at Buffalo, where the Sabres are firmly entrenched in last place in the now expanded NHL's East Divdsiton. Meehan, named by coach Punch Imlach to replace veteran Floyd Smith earlier this season, responded to the early challenge but had been blanked for more than a month before his score Thursday night laimched Buffalo to a 2^ win over Los Angeles Kings, tailen-dere in the West.

Officiating not the best DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -Victor Jeny Quarry was mad, and so was battered loser Lou Bailey Thursday night after Iowa's first professional boxing card since the sport came under state control 18 months ago. "That's the worst refereeing 1 have ever had in my professional career of 50 fights," said QuaiTy after scoring a unanimous decision over the ring-wise Bailey from Omaha, Neb. Quarry, the second-ranked challenger for Joe Frazier's heavyweight championship, knocked Bailey down six times in the featured event of the four-bout program, but failed to get a knockout. The BeUflower, Calif., native came into the fight fresh from a 64-second knockout of European champion Jack Bodell two weeks ago in London, but was taken the limit by Bailey who came into the bout with a 14-35* 5 record.

Tonight's only game has Chicago Black Hawks in Oakland against California Golden Seals. Meehan, coming off a 24-goal season for the first-year Sabres, was a logical choice for Imlach, who had the 2&-year-old Toronto native earlier In his career, when both msTB with the Leafs. Meehan's free-wheeling, fluid skatnig style was one of the few bright spots in the Buffalo lineup and served as an inspirational gap for the veteran-studded Sabres and i^>-and-coming rookies. But the goal against Los Angeles, his sbcth of the season, was his first stoce Oct. 30. Goaltend^ Roger Crozier registered his fkst shutout in a Buffalo uniform, facing 31 shots including 14 in a torrid final period. DUFF RETinES The Sabres played without veteran winger Dick Duff who announced his retirement after 16 fuU seasons. The Sabres were the 35-year-old Kirkland Lake, Ont., native's fifth NHL team. He played previously under Imlach at Toronto and later had stints with New York Rangers, Montreal Canadiens and Los Angeles before moving on to Buffalo in December, 1970. "One of the NHL's greatest little players," said Imlach of Duff at a news conference called Thursday to announce the retirement. The veteran left winger, at 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, was small by physical standards for the NHL but made up for his stature witl^ an aggressive brand of hockey.' Imlach said Duff, who performed on sbc Stanley Cup champion teams-two at Toronto and four at Montreal-was at his best in the post-season action and "wtas one of the best playoff hockey players I ever coached." The Flyers and Detroit traded scores by the Wings' Nick Li-bett and BUI Clarke at Philadelphia in the second period. But goalies Joe Daley, in the Detroit net, and Philadelphia's Doug Favell, were otherwise unbeatable in an evenly-played game that saw Detroit hold a 27-26 edge in shots. Only seven minor penalties were assessed, four to the Flyo^. BUFPALO 7 LOS ANOELES 1 FIrsf Period - 1. Buffalo, Meehan 6 CAfklnson, Evans) 12:20.
