Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LFTHDRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 24, 1970 Boston finally wins in, Olympia Leafs break Vancouver spell with victory By EL) SIMON Canadian Press Slaff Writer A couple of monkeys disap- peared irom the backs of Na- liornil Hockey League clubs Wednesday night. Boston Bruins won a game in Detroit for the first time in nearly two years. And Toronto Maple Leafs defeated Vancou- ver Canucks for the first time in iciorded history. The Bruins, riding a nine game winning streak, and the Leafs, with seven straight victo- ries under their belt, were jiiLX- proof as Boston edged the Red Wings 2-1 and Toronto thrashed the Canucks 7-2. New York Rangers also won their seventh in a row, a 6-1 de- cision over Pittsburgh Pen- guins, to remain tied with Bos- ton for first place in the NHL's East Division. Chicago Black Hawks, leaders in the West, de- feated Los Angeles Kings 6-4 to open up a 10-point margin over St. Louis Blues, who had a 2-2 tie with Montreal Canadians. Speaking of jinxes, the Blues Kings dropped to fourth spot tHE OLD AND THE NEW-Quarterback Earl Morrall of the Baltimore Colts, who still has a somewhat" outmoded crew cut hairdo, laLrcjhs as he views the pink jump- suit and handbag worn by teammate Roy Jefferson. Jefferson, left, a wide receiver on the Colts who has caught 45 passes this season, has several mod outfits that wow the Colt and the postgame crowds. He gets a chance to display another one Saturday when the Colts meet Cincinnati Bengals. Shoivdoivn games on iveekend run, a little It's not true that Baltimore Colts seldom run the football. It's just that they don't run it far. In winning the East Division (Hie of the American Footbal] Conference with an 11-2-1 record, the Colts tried 410 passes and 411 running plays. They gained yards the air and only on the ground. The Baltimore running attack severely hampered when veteran Tom Matte, who gained yards last year, limped off the field in the opening game with an injured knee and stayed out all season. That left rookie Norm Buliach as the club's leading rusher with a modest total of 426 yards. But Cincinnati Bengals, who meet the Colts Saturday in one of four "weekend playoff games in the National Football League, are unlikely to gear their de- fence for an orthodox passing attack. Rookie coach Don MeCafferly has perked up the Baltimore at- tack with few imaginative touches, VARIED OFFENCE There have been double re- verses, some ending in paJses. They have come up with end- arounds, quick screens, tight- end screens, double and triple and raan-in-motion plays from a full backfield. Detroit Lions visit Dallas Cowboys in the other Saturday playoff. On Sunday, Minnesota Vikings entertain Francisco M9ers and Miami Dolphins play the Raiders at Oakland. Statistics point to an interest- ing battle between the Vikings and M9ers. The Minnesota defence has thrown opposing quarterbacks for losses 49 times this year, the second-highest total in the NFL. But San Francisco's offensive line set a league record by per- mitting quarterback John Bra- die to be dumped only eight times. The '49ers scored the most points, 352, and had the fewest passes intercepted, 10. The Vi- kings tied with Detroit for the roost interceptions, 28, and al- lowed the fewest points, 143. The Miami-Oakland game shapes up as a contrast in offen- sive power. Miami, led by Larry Csonka's 874 yards rush- ing, had the most effective ground attack in the American Conference while Raider quart- erback Daryle Lamonica was the AFC's top passer. "Tiie league rules state the games must be re- The Lethbridge Sugar Kings find tliernselvcs four points less as a result of a protest made by the Red Deer Rustlers which was upheld by the Alberta Ju- niior Hockey League Wedncs- The Rustlers protested Uiat the Sugar Kings had used an ineligible player, Dave George, in games November 28 and 29 which were won by the Kings 8-4 and 5-2. In a prepared statement, AJHL president Doug Lauchlan said; that played, one in Red Deer and the oilier in Lethbridge. at the convenience of both clubs." Coach and manager of the Rustlers, Alf Cadman was not satisfied with the league ruling and has decided to carry the matter further and will retake the protest up with the dian Amateur Hockey Associa- tion. Previously, the CAHA had de- cided to let the AJHL smooth out their differences by them- selves. On the oilier hand King's manager Syd Hall is upset over the league's decision but has kept a cool head over the whole situation. Prior to the two encounters in question, Lauchlan had given the Kings permission to use George, but under the protest made by the Rustlers his per- mission was over-ruled. For Hall, the decision stands and he is willing to replay matches although his club is getting the short-end of the deal. He feels that if the protest should be carried any further it may have an adverse effect on the league. When asked what his inten- tions are at this time he re- plied: "We'll just have to wait until Cadman finishes." With the decision against the Kings it has plunged them into fourth place in the six-team league with 28 points, one be- hind the Edmonton Maple Leafs. Calgary currently rules the roost with 36 points, one more than the second place Rustlers wim now have two games in hand. High school bonspiel set for Monday Action in the annual Lelh- have yet to beat Montreal at St. Louis in 15 meetings since they entered the NHL years ago. Tlu'ce of the previous games were tied. The Bruins, whose last victory in Detroit was on Feb. 22, pumped two goals past goal- tender Jim Rutherford in the first six minutes but were balked by the rookie nctniindei1 the rest of the way. The rookie netminder made eight stops on Phil Esposilo, Boston'? 30-goal shooter, as the Bruins fired 39 shots at him with Ed Westfall and Fred Stan- field the only successful marks- men. Frank Mahovlich robbed Ed Johnston of his shutout early in the third period when his shot rent in off the skate of Boston defenceman Ted Green. Deflections also played a part in the early going at Toronto, where Leaf defenceman Mike Pelyk bounced one in off Pat Quinn, a former team-mate, and then co-operated unwillingly as Dan Johnson banked home a shot to give Vancouver a 2-1 lead. The Canucks began to fall apart shortly after their cap- tain, Orland Kurtenbach, limped to the dressing room with a bruised knee after a bod- ycheck by Leaf defenceman Bobby Baun in the first period. The Leafs scored three times in the second period and three more in the third, two of them by Norm Ullman. CANUCKS PROTEST GOAL The game-winner by rookie Darryl Slttler drew protests from the Canucks, who con- tended that Jim Harrison tripped goalie George Gardner in the crease just before the puck went in. They objected again on the next goal, claiming that a shot by Harrison had not crossed the goal line. The Leafs kept Gardner busy with a barrage of 57 shots while Vancouver fired 29 at Toronto goalie Jacques Plante.
