Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Great afternoon's enjoyment shared by Old-Timers game played in Storey book fashion By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Nostalgia took over the Sportsplex Sunday afternoon as the National Hockey League Old Timers met their western counterparts in a game where there were very few losers. As a matter of fact if there were any losers they had to be the people who missed the encounter. It was truly a fun after- noon. Just over Southern Alberta hockey fans took in the game and were treated to 2Vz hours of enjoyment, thanks a great deal to the antics 'of referee Red Storey and Ray Kinasawich of the Western Old Timers. Made up mostly of former Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens, the NHL Old Timers chalked up a 12-8 win, but who was counting goals anyway? Business commitments kept Bill Hay, John Ferguson and Maurice "Rocket" Richard from the line up but one must doubt whether they would have made any difference as Storey and Kinasawich carried the play. Crozier can't relax THE CANADIAN PRESS Considering the way Van- couver Blazers have been moving lately, you might ex- pect coach Joe Crozier to assume a more relaxed at- titude. Such is not the case. "My heart is not as good as it used to Crozier said Sunday after Vancouver defeated Minnesota Fighting Saints 4-2 for the Blazers' fifth win in their last six World Hockey Association games. "When I'm behind the bench, I'm making saves for the goalie, winning faceoffs and backchecking." Even if Crozier can't relax, the record is improving for the Blazers who had only three wins in 13 games until their recent six-game upsurge that has included victories over two division Toros and New England Whalers. In other WHA games Sun- day, Quebec Nordiques edged Houston Aeros 2-1, Edmonton Oilers blanked Michigan Stags 7-0, Toronto beat Phoenix Roadrunners 5-2, Winnipeg Jets defeated Chicago Cougars 5-2 and Indianapolis Racers beat San Diego Mariners 5-3. Saturday, the Blazers beat Michigan 4-2, Chicago whipped Toronto 9-3, New England defeated In- dianapolis 6-3 and Cleveland Crusaders beat San Diego 3-1. The Blazers had to come from behind a 2-0 deficit with three second-period goals by Bryan Campbell, Danny Lawson and Jimmy Jones for the win over Minnesota. Despite outshooting the Saints 15-5 in the third period, the Blazers got only one more goal by Rob Walton. Norm Beaudin scored once and helped set up another goal for Winnipeg in the second pe- riod as the Jets padded a 2-1 first-period lead and went on to beat Chicago. The Jets outshot the Cougars 37-31 in the game but Winnipeg goalie Joe Daley had to be sharp in the third period when Chicago surged back with an 186 advantage in shots. Churchill ousted Winston Churchill girls lost out in the semi finals of the provincial girls Triple A volleyball championships at Ponoka over the weekend. The Churchill team, who dropped the third game in the best of three match 15-13, were defeated by Crescent Heights of Medicine Hat. Crescent Heights went on to emerge the winners of the championship. In boys Triple A provincial finals at Stettler, Taber W. R. Myers represented this zone. They lost out in round robin tourney which saw Stettler come out the winners. When they did get down to playing hockey Ted Lindsay was the scoring star of the game as he paced the NHL'ers with four goals. In the Old Timer games such as this one there are no slapshots and no bodychecks. It wouldn't have bothered Lindsay either way. One of the toughest, left wingers ever to play in the National Hockey League, Lindsay is still in excellent condition. A pair of younger Old Timers added to goals apiece for the NHL while singles came from Joe Klukay, Bobby Brown, Jack Stewart and Marty Pavelich. Elmer Lach and Bill Gadsby each chipped in with three assists. Lou Jankowsky led the west with three goals. Gord Cowan added two while Rock Crawford, Ken Cairns and Art Michaluk scored once each. But the two real stars of the show were Storey and Kinasawich. Kinasawich gave the crowd the best lesson of how not to skate you can be sure they ever witnessed. He even found time to do a little running on his blades. And then came Storey. Can you imagine penalties for missing an open net? Or wearing skates on the wrong end.? He even had the nerve to give Black Jack Stewart a penalty for playing like he did back in the 50's. At one stage of the game Gadsby and Al Willis collided with Willis getting the game on a flip of a coin. Gadsby and Storey collaborated on another bit of humor in the third period as Gadsby bought the NHL Old Timers a goal, with the help of some Eastern Canada currency. All proceeds from the game will go to the Canada Winter Games. Jim Peters, a spokesman for the NHL team, told the people Sunday that the Red Wings Old Timers have raised almost three quarters of a million dollars for charity while the Canadiens have eclipsed the mark. "Our old legs skate so that young ones may he said. "That's the whole idea behind it." A lot of people made a lot of new friends this past weekend. Many of them will have a Storey or two to tell. MARTY PAVLICH, LEFT AND TED LINDSAY, RIGHT, SIGN AUTOGRAPHS French Connection all scoring goals THE CANADIAN PRESS Buffalo's French Connec- tion line appears to be on its way to setting a few National Hockey League scoring records and could lead the Sabres to a few team records at the same time. The three French Connec- tion Perreault, Rene Robert and Rick Martin, each scored his 20th goal of the season in Buffalo's 5-0 vic- tory Sunday over Minnesota North Stars. That gives the trio 60 goals in 29 games this season, but a look at the line's more recent production gives a better in- dication of the hot pace they're setting. In the last 17 games, the Sa- bres line has scored 44 17 by Robert, 15 by Martin and 12 by Perreault. Continuing that pace through this season's 80-game schedule could easily put them beyond the season record of 140 goals set by the Phil Esposito-Ken Hodge-Wayne Cashman line of Boston Bruins in 1970-71. Meanwhile, the Sunday vic- tory was Buffalo's 10th in a row on home ice and extended the Sabres' unbeaten string to 11 games, a club record. In other games Sunday, To- ronto Maple Leafs defeated Chicago Black Hawks 4-1, Detroit Red Wings upset Van- couver Canucks 4-2, Boston beat Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2, St. Louis Blues defeated Washington Capitals 3-1, Philadelphia Flyers beat New York Islanders 3-2 and STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION TONIGHT! P.M. LES THORNTON VIBI6 JOHN QUINN (MIGHTY UR3US, REFEREE) KELLY TWINS vt LANE a HART JUDO JACKET MATCH KLOKEID vs HITO KAMATA vs STRONG 5 BIG BOUTS Montreal Canadiens tied 3-3 with New York Rangers. Saturday, the Rangers beat Chicago 7-4, the Islanders de- feated Kansas City Scouts 4-1, Los Angeles Kings defeated Atlanta Flames 6-2, Montreal beat Pittsburgh 5-2, St. Louis whipped Washington 8-2 and Detroit tied Toronto 3-3. Rookie goalie Gary Bromley recorded his 14th triumph and second shutout of the season for Buffalo. He only faced 14 shots Sunday. At Chicago, Errol Thompson scored {wo third- period goals for the second night in a row to rally the Leafs. The Hawks took a 1-0 lead in the second period on a goal by Cliff Koroll, but Norm Ullman tied it early in the third period and Thompson followed with the tie-breaker and the clincher before Elaine Stoughton hit another on an empty net in the final minute. At Boston, the Bruins gain- ed the victory in the 'third period when defenceman Bobby Orr got his 16th goal of the season to break a 2-2 deadlock. Larry Robinson's 40-foot slap shot early in the final period at New York gave Montreal the tie with .the Rangers Washington, playing before a home crowd of equalled St. Louis' 23 shots on goal but goalie Eddie Johnston made the difference for St. Louis against Capitals netminder Michel Bel- humeur. The win broke a 10- game winless streak for St. Louis on the road. Centre Orest Kindrachuk's two goals led the Flyers over the Islanders at Philadelphia. At-Detroit, Hank Nowak's goal midway in the second pe- riod broke a 1-1 tie and the Red Wings added two more goals in the third period to up- set the Canucks who still en- joy a 13-point lead over second-place Chicago in the Smythe Division.

RED STOREY GIVES NETMINDER A HAND Taber Golden Suns lose two contests Taber Golden Suns dropped two games over the weekend in Alberta Junior Hockey League action. Sunday the Suns were the victims of the Red Deer Rustlers as the Rustlers, play- ing in front of their home town fans, got two goals from Terry Wittchen and skated to a 6-3 win. Saturday the Calgary Canucks whipped the Suns 9-5 in Calgary. Barry Lassiter, George Wright, Dave Krook and Kevin Joll also scored for Red Deer Sunday. Darcy Virostek, with two, and Brad Cox replied for Taber. Seven players received game misconducts for fighting. Three of the penalties went to the Golden Suns. They also served three of seven majors and 12 of 19 minors. Red Deer had a 38-33 edge in shots on goal. In Saturday's contest Mike Mclvor and Mendal Vysholid led Calgary with two goals apiece.

The Canucks led 3-2 and 7-3 by periods, and the teams split 16 minor penalties. The Pass Red Devils came close to posting their first win of the season Saturday night but fell short and dropped a 4- 3 decision to Red Deer Rustlers. The Red Devils, 0-24, held period leads of 2-1 and 3-2, but lost when Erie Switzer and Barry Lassiter scored power play goals in the final period. Switzer had an earlier goal and Terry Wittchen also scored for the winners. George Buat scored twice for The Pass and Don Burkinshaw added one goal.
