Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, 6, 1974 WE ARE NOW ACCEPTIN8 REGISTRATIONS FOR 1975 CHARTERS TO EUROPE ALSO LONDON TO CALGARY Register now with ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 386-3201 The Herald Sports Pat Sullivan 4 long wait appears over It may be too early to tell, but it looks as if the patience the Vancouver Canuck fans have displayed is paying off. The Canucks are definitely for real this year and in all likelihood will be for many years to come. One need only look at the standings of the National Hockey League's Smythe.division to see that the Canucks have a very respectable 16-6-4 record, the second best in the entire league. Only Buffalo Sabres, another pleasant surprise, has won more games. The Sabres have chalked up 19 wins as compared to the Canucks' 16 and while the Canucks have lost six games the Sabres have dropped but four. Excitement on the west coast of North America continues right on down into Los Angeles where the Kings of Bob Pulford are 12-2-9. Can you imagine the Kings having lost only two of their first 23 games? But the most delight is derived from the Canucks. Once referred to as the New York Mets of hockey, the Canucks have stumbled and stalled in past years. They displayed flashes of brilliance, tout that was it. However, this time around things are happening in Van- couver. Canucks are in the enviable position of being able to look back and see other teams behind them for a change. Take for example the Chicago Black Hawks. Most experts felt that all the Hawks had to do was show up and they would run away from the rest of the clubs in the Smythe division. Hawks, instead of heading the pack, is being hounded by a pack. Minnesota North Stars are but one point behind the Hawks. Chicago has earned 23 points on 10 wins and three ties. North Stars have 22 on nine victories and four sawoffs. Black Hawk troubles don't end there. St. Louis Blues have managed to pick up 21 points on eight wins and five ties. The only club not haunting the Hawks are the Kansas City Scouts. How do you account for the sudden rise of the Canucks? Most people feel it is because of Gary Smith, their very capable netminder. As team-mate Dennis Kearns puts it, "the best part about the Canucks is that with one exception there aren't any stars on the team." Canucks floundered in the basement year after year waiting for Dale Tallon to become a superstar. The best Tallon has done is gain a reputation as a prima donna. He is now a Black Hawk and the Canucks are suddenly flying. Canuck players marvel at the fact that now reporters come into their dressing room and don't know who to talk to. The Van- couver success is wrapped around the performance of an entire team. All of a sudden the forwards are backchecking, the defencemen are hitting and Smith is stopping almost everything that comes his way. It must be a real treat for Canuck coach Phil Maloney to have to worry about who to sit out. What a spot to be in. Everyone is playing so well, who do you bench? I guess that it's that old saying "good things come to those who wait." Well, the good Lord knows that the Canuck fans have waited long enough. He also knows that a good thing has finally come along.

Ticket sales close January 15th. 1975 Preliminary Draw January 31st, 1975 The Native Sons led only 2-1 after one period, and 4-3 after 40 minutes as the Palace Pats gave them one of their toughest tests of the season. Nine different Sons scored the goals for the locals. Gino Guzzi and Darrel Os- mond notched markers in the first period while Mark Scheibner and Terry Roberts the second. In the final frame, the locals got goals from Greg Kveder, Albert Dumont, Ken Klinkhammer, Joe Meli, and Dwayne Howell. Kevin Verostek scored twice for the Palace Pats, with singles coming off the sticks of Marty Fritz, Jerry Orban, John Wilson, and Neil Goruk. The Native Sons barely out- shot the visitors as Lethbridge goalie Gary Warner was call- ed upon 20 times while Lonnie Howg and Greg Dophin, who shared duties between the Taber pipes, were tested 25 times. The Native Sons took nine of 16 penalties, including the game's lone misconduct and game misconduct. With a ccomfortable 9-1 record, the Native Sons will now host a very tough Olds team Saturday night at Henderson Ice Centre.

"We outhustled them Delvecchio said. "It was a team effort, the way I'd like them to play all the time. It's a matter of playing posi- tion hockey and hustling. That creates breaks." In other NHL action Thurs- day, Buffalo Sabres whipped Washington Capitals 9-2, Philadelphia Flyers beat Chicago Black Hawks 3-2 and New York Islanders tied 3-3 with Toronto Maple Leafs-. The Red Wings, who had won only two of 11 previous starts, piled up a 4-0 lead and then went on to hand the Bruins only their second home loss in 13 games this season. Marcel Dionne scored three goals and rookie Earl Anderson had two in leading the Red Wings. Dionne's third goal came with just to play after Boston had closed to within 5-4. The Bruins outshot the Wings 42-22, but Boston goalie Gilles Gilbert was outduelled by Detroit netminder Doug Grant. "They got some breaks on their goals, but there's no ex- cuse for Boston coach Don Cherry said. "It's tough to spot so many goals and then play catchup. We tried like hell in the last two periods, but couldn't do it." "Our guy (Grant) played one helluva Delvecchio said. "He made some big saves early in the game and that started us off. The guy at the other end (Gilbert) had his problems." ONLY PER MONTH WHY PAY RENT?

TYPEWRITERS We can witness All-Star contest WINNIPEG (CP) Canada's final two games in the world junior hockey tournament will be televised on the CTV national network, tournament chairman Earl Dawson an- nounced Thursday. The six team tournament will be played Dec. 26 Jan. 5 with games in Winnipeg, Brandon, Minneapolis and Fareo N.D. Dawson said there will be no blackouts of the games He said the network wanted to carry the final three games but that would have involved several schedule changes. "The CTV organization wanted to dictate its own terms... but the tournament committee stood firm on almost all of its original agreements and the final solution involves just two games." The committee agreed to switch starting times of the Jan. 1 games to allow the telecast of the Canada Czechoslovakia game to begin at 1 p.m., MST. The Canada Russia contest will be carried Jan. 5. Canada will be represented in the tournament by the Western Canada Hockey League All-Stars. Other par- icipants are the national teams of the United States, Sweden and Finland. Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutler of the Lethbridge Broncos will be in uniform for the All Stars for the tournament.
