Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ANDY CAPP Pat Sullivan Old-Timers come and go Ted Lindsay went the entire game without an elbowing penalty; Rock Crawford didn't get a chance to dance on his skates but did score the opening goal and Elmer Lach displayed flashes of why he is in hockey's Hall of Fame. This was just a sprinkling of what went into the recipe of Sunday's Old Timers game at the Sportsplex. A game a guy named Red Storey made great. Storey, who turned his back on a very lucrative career as a National Hockey League referee because the league officials failed to back him, led a cast of Old Timers through their paces Sunday afternoon and as has been said before, the only losers were the people who missed the game. The fun and enjoyment of the game itself was just part of the weekend that helped make people from east end west many new friends. As Jimmy Peters of the Detroit Red Wings, who along with Montreal Canadiens help make up the eastern club, said Sunday "we'll be back." Joe Klukay made it very clear he will return. "I had heard talk of Western he said, "now I know what they mean." Space won't allow for all that could be said to be listed. The compliments heaped on the Lethbridge organizers were many. Sunday's game will be a big boost for the Canada Winter Games, you can bet on that. Lindsay, like the entire contingent of players and their wives, was very impressed with the Sportsplex. "We need something like this in the Detroit he said. "We have over 300 minor hockey rinks, but nothing like this." And how does Lindsay feel about today's hockey players? He is impressed with some of them but feels the calibre of play has definitely -been watered down. "It certainly isn't like it used to said Lindsay. "Now what they pay one of the top draft choices would have been enough to pay the entire Red Wing team when it was in its heyday. If Storey could change the game in any way what would he do first? "Expansion has been a sore spot for he stated. "I think each team should be allowed to protect just 10 players and one goalie. This way there would be some very good hockey talent available for the expansion teams. We wouldn't have such dismal clubs as Washington and Kansas City. You can cxpcci to take in another Old Timers game. It may not be next year but it will happen again. After all we still have to see Crawford on his toes swinging his stick like a lariat, Lindsay take an elbowing penalty and Lach score a goal And one look at Ray Kinasawich and his dying swan act is not enough, nor is just one look at Art Michaluk's toque. No, we have to do it again gentlemen. NEW CONSTABLE ABOUND I'D BETTER WARN LIKE A NICE YOU'RE A MAN AFTER MY OWN HEART, SON, I'M A GREAT t BELIEVER IN LAW AN( ORDER) 'AS LONG AS 'ECAN LAY "DOWN THE LAW GIVE THE Wednesday, December 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Brawls spoil At least not facing 19 shots Smith doesn't mind working Southern Alberta Juvenile League WEDNESDAY, DEC. 11th p.m. CIVIC ICE CENTRE LETHBRIDGE MIDGET ELKS vs TABER JUVENILES Adults Students Children By THE CANADIAN PRESS It's been suggested by some National Hockey League ob- servers that when goalie Gary Smith gets tired of the work load, Vancouver Canucks will begin to slump. But as long as the Canucks do as good a job as they did Tuesday night in helping their lanky netminder, he shouldn't have to worry about the work load and can keep busy instead counting his shutouts. Smith had to make only 19 saves to record his fifth shutout of the season Tuesday night, backing the surprising Canucks in their 18th win, a 3- 0 decision over California Seals. In other NHL games Tuesday, Boston Bruins beat Kansas City Scouts 6-2, Montreal Canadiens defeated Minnesota North Stars 5-3 and New York Islanders edged St. Louis Blues 3-2. Paulin Bordeleau scored twice to help the Canucks widen their Smythe Division lead to 15 points over second- place Chicago Black Hawks. After just 29 games, the Ca- nucks now are only seven wins away from breaking their club record of 24 wins in one season set in their first year in 1970-71 and matched last season. At Minnesota, a three-goal flurry by the Canadiens sent North Stars' goalie Cesare Maniago to the showers in the second period. Maniago took himself out of the game after he misplayed a routine shot by Montreal's Murray Wilson, allowing a goal that gave the Canadiens a 4-2 lead. "Please leave me said a frustrated Maniago after the game. "I don't want to talk about it." Maniago slammed his stick to the ice and skated past the North Star bench and ignored an attempt by coach Jack Gordon to keep the goalie in the game.

Cleveland coach John Hanna warned his Crusaders not to take last-place Van- couver Blazers for granted, but apparently the message didn't sink in.

Ryan, who pitched the third no-hitter of his career during the season, pitched a league high 332 2-3 innings and, in the process, struck out 367 batters, thus becoming the first pitcher in major league history to surpass 300 strikeouts three years in a row. He fell only 16 strikeouts shy of his own record of 383 set in 1973. Ferguson Jenkins, the native of Chatham, Ont., with Texas Rangers, runner-up to Hunter in the Cy Young balloting, also won 25 games while Ryan.

Vancouver Attendance 15 570 The Blazers, last in the World Hockey Association Canadian Divison but with five wins in their last six games, beat the Crusaders 4-3 Tuesday night. "I cautioned them prior to the game for that one Hanna said. "Van- couver isn't as bad as their last-place standing makes them sound. Their season record was 9-11, and we were only 10-7, so we really weren't much better." The win gave the Blazers a 6-1 record in their last seven games and pulled them to within one point of fourth- place Edmonton Oilers. In other games Tuesday, Winnipeg Jets beat In- dianapolis Racers 5-3, Minnesota Fighting Saints defeated Toronto Toros 4-2, Phoenix Roadrunners de- feated Chicago Cougars 4-2 and Michigan Stags played to a 4-4 tie against San Diego Mariners.
