Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 3,0 - THE irTHBRIDCF HEP.AID - Friday. Dffcember 17, 197T Giacomin driven from New York nets sizzling Rangers By I AN Macl/AINK Canadian Tress Staff Writer Riding a crest as the National Hockey League's No. 1 goal-:ender has its pitfalls. The descent, when it comes, can be sudden and embarrassing. Gump Worsley held the dubious leadership last weekend. Then Chicago Black Hawks raked him for four goals in just over 12 minutes en route to n 5-3 win over Worsley's Minnesota North S'lars. Eddie G i a c o m i n, who replaced Worsley as the league's premier goalie, took his lumps Thursday night, allowing four goals in the first period as New York Rangers, East Division leaders. fp'l 8-1 before the aroused host Boston Bruins. The win gave Boston 42 points, three behind New York, and a second-place tie with Montreal Canadiens. In tlie only other game, Philadelphia Flyers climbed into a HAPPY BRUINS - Boston Bruins' Ken Hodge (8) and Phil Esposito (7) embrace each other after Hodge scored on New York Rangers' goalie Ed Giacomin in the first period. The Boston offence drove Giacomin from the nets as they blasted the Rangers 8-1. Wants them to stay out of sports unter blasts federal policy EDMONTON (CP) - Bill Hunter, general manager of Edmonton Oil Kings and a key figure in the new World Hockey Association, says the federal government should stay completely out of amateur sport, except to lend assistance in building facilities. Hunter was commenting in an interview on a report that a federal provincial conference on sport had decided, with Health Minister John Munro's agreement, to investigate amateur hockey. "They are welcome to investigate the Western Canada Hockey League," he said. "All we ask is that they print the facts about our league. What we are getting now from the government isn't the facts, hut insinuation that can only serve to undermine public confidence in amateur sport. "Look at the mess the government has made of the economy of this country. These same people now want to tell us how to run amateur sport. They don't know what they're talking about. ..."

"Serving Southern Alberta for 35 Years" is suddenly concerned about the control the National Hockey League has over the rules and regulations of- the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. "Why wasn't the government concerned when twice in the last six years our league had to go independent at a cost to ourselves of thousands of dollars because we refused to comply with regulations the NHL dictated to the CAHA? "Because our league stood up to the NHL, junior hockey teams now have complete freedom to make all their own rules and regulations. . . " Hunter noted the conference expressed a growing fear that Floor hockey the next best With the shortage of Ice In southern Alberta the Southern Regional Recreation B o ard found itself in a position of dissolving its Pee Wee hockey program for the winter. However, the boys did get their recreation as a floor hockey league was formed and enjoyed by all. The season comes to a close this Saturday afternoon when fathers meet the sons in what is hoped will be a family affair. The game is set for 1:30 at the Kate Andrews High School and anyone interested is invited to attend. young hockey players are being treated as chattels. "I just hope that my two boys have an opportunity to be treated as chattels where they get the best of both worlds, education and hockey. "Everybody except the government is aware of the Oil Kings scholarship that has completely paid the way of dozens of boys through University and at the same time offered them the opportunity to train for a lucrative career in pro hockey. "The Oil Kings aren't the only junior team in the country that offers education and hockey." Hunter said junior teams In Ontario, however, have rules such as a midget draft that warrant investigation. "The junior OHA has always considered itself above all else, and it would be interesting to see how that league stands up under investigation." Hunter noted the government had expressed concern that the WHA would turn players pro before the age of 20. "Our league hasn't decided yet at what age we'll turn players pro," he said. "In this province the age of majority is 18. Do you mean to tell me the government wants to rule that a young man is old enough to vote, marry, sign contracts, make purchases but isn't mature enough to decide if he should become a professional hockey player.

The Gumper exited after the fourth goal Sunday. The New York goalie didn't depart imtil the end of the first period after Bruins' centre Phil Esposito had picked up his fourth point of the game, assisting on Ken Hodge's score at 19:15. Esposito, who last year set a points record of 152 and is the current points-leader with 55, Someone goofed! NEW YORK (AP) - Joe G a r a g iol a, the ballplayer turned television performer, blew his lines while taping a commercial, cursed and. through a technical error, the strong language went on the air Thursday. NBC, producer of Sale of the Century, the program on which the incident occurred, told viewers later, "We're extremely sorry." Garagiola, in an apology which wil 1 be aired today, said: "There was a technical error which resulted in my using language I'm really not proud of. It was done under pressure and unfortunately was heard on the air. "I sincerely apologize for that language and I assure you it will never happen again." An NBC spokesman explained the first three lead-ins to the commercial were bad, and at the end iof the third try Joe said to the technicians, "Oh, Christ, I'm sorry, goddammit," and then went on to do a fourth. By error, the spokesman said, the third version was fed to network affiliates in all sections of the United States except the West Coast, where the correct version of the commercial appeared.

Gilles Viliemure, who came on in Giacomin's relief, allowed the other four Boston goals, facing only 17 shots in two periods. Rangers' Ted Irvine and Boston winger John McKenzie were ticketed with fighting majors in the first period, but their battle turned into a preliminary of the feature donnybrook at 18:37 of the middle period. Rod Gilbert, New York's high scoring winger, and Bruin de-fenceman Dallas Smith started the fireworks in front of Boston goalie Gerry Gheevers. The ill feelings spread to other players and New York de-fenceman Brad Park started to take the measure of Ted Green in another attraction. All four players received fighting majors and misconduct penalties while Ranger Vic Had-field and Hodge were given game misconducts each for being the third man in the separate altercations. PRAISES HIS TEAM "This just has to be our best game of the season," said Boston coach Tom Johnson. "There was nothing holding our guys back tonight," he added in reference to the aggressive play of his Bruins in front of the hometown Garden fans. "It didn't make any difference who I put out there." Johnson elected to go with power against power, matching up the Esposito line against New York's Hot Line of Gilbert, Hadfield and Jean Ratelle. The Boston line, including Hodge and Wayne Cashman, set an NHL record of 336 points last season. The New York trio leads this season with 143 points in 29 games. Tlie defeat was so convincing, about the only thing Ranger coach Emile Francis could argue about was which goal was the turning point. BPG GOAL "I think our third goal was the key," said Johnson. "It broke off a New York player's (Dale Rolfe) glove and we were fortunate. "Going three up in a game like this was a big lift." "The first goal," was Francis' choice. "Coming so early (in the second minute of play) it really hurt us." Serge Bernier's two goals lifted Philadelphia's fans as the Flyers capitalized on two successive Buffalo penalties in the second period to lock up the win. Leading 1-0 at the time, Sabres Steve Atkinson and Chris Evans went off 51 seconds apart early in the middle period and Philadelphia quickly turned the game around with Dick Sarra-zin and Bernier clicking before the teams were even up again.
