Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 24, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGI HERALD IS Four-point outing for Sabres' leading scorer Perreault immune to so-called sophomore jinx By ED SIMON Canadian Press Staff Writer Gil Perreault, who set Na- tional Hockey League records for goals and points scored by a f i r s t -y e a r man last season, never seems to have heard of the sophomore jinx. Boston Bruins wish someone would ex- plain it to him. The 21-year-old centre scored two goals and set up the other two Thursday night as Buffalo Sabres escaped from the East Division cellar by holding the Bnrins to a 4-4 tie. The result was painful for the Brains, who blew a two-goal lead and a chance to lie Mont- real Canadians for second place in the division. They now trail the leading New York Rangers by four points with two games in hand.

(CP-AP) Legend has it that more than 40 years ago Knute Rockne looked with concern at "any game that puts dubs in the hands and blades on the feet" of Irishmen. But he didn't say anything about Canadians. And there are nine Canadians on the Notre Dame hockey squad that has become a colle- giate power during the last four years. It has been less than a vin- tage year for sport at the pri- vate Roman Catholic institmion which Rockne turned into a football powerhouse during (he late 1920s.

This year, the Irish started off strong and led the Westesn Col- legiate Hockey Association- toughest in the United until they lost a pair of 6-5 deci- sions to Michigan. Now they stand 4-4 in conference play and have the three leading individ- ual scorers in the league. Eddie Bumhacco, sophomore from Sault Sle. Marie, Ont., leads with 11 goals and 17 points. Ian Williams, sophomore from Toronto, is second with 15 points ?nd freshman John Campbell from the Soo has 12 points. Bumbacco, immediately after last season, had surgery to cor- rect a chronic shoulder separa- tion. He had 30 goals and 15 25 games last year. He missed another six games with mononucleosis. Two years ago he set a North- ern Ontario Hookey Association record witli 119 points on 05 goals and 54 assists and was named the league's most valua- ble player. He is enrolled in the college of arts and letters. PICKED BV PENGUINS Williams, like Bumbacco, is a wuiger. He was picked by Pitts- burgh Penguins last June in the National Hockey League ama- teur draft. The Notre Dame book says of Campbell: "Rated one of the top players tn come out of the Soo area. Great playmaker with a good shot, could be n college star. Was a marked man in NOHA finished sixth in league scoring despite missing part of season with a knee injiu-y scored 87 points on 35 goals and 52 asfdsts enrolled in the college of business administra- tion."

ST. LOUIS (API Centre Chris of St. Louis Blues suffered a broken left foot in a National Hockey League in ai t c h Wednesday night and will be out of action about a month, the Blues said Thursday. The Blues said (hey did not plan to call up anyone immedi- ately to replace Bordeleau. Perreault's four-point per- formance gave him a total of 15 goals, 2fi assists and 42 points for the season, well ahead of his record at the same stage a year ago. He is seventh among the league's marksmen with Phil Esposito and Bobby Knicks sweep three By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Kniclis may be tired, but they're happy. Playing in their third West Coast city in three nights, the Knicks completed a sweep of their far west swing Thursday night by outlasting Portland Trailblazers 120-117, thanks to four free throws in the final 33 seconds by New York's Walt Frazier. In the other two National Bas- ketball Association games, Cleveland Cavaliers edged At- lanta Hawks 115-110 and Chi- cago Bulls downed Phoenix Suns 117-108 in overtime. In ABA games, Indiana edged Denver 104-101, Utah defeated Memphis 112-101, Kentucky whipped Virginia 139-123 and in a doubleheader in New York's Madison Square Garden, the Floridians topped Carolina 125- 109 in the opener and Pittsburgh nipped New York Nets 124-123 in overtime in the nightcap. The weary Knicks, who de- feated Golden State Warriors in Oakland Tuesday night, then beat the SuperSonics in Seattle Wednesday night, saw Portland chip an 11-point lead down to three in the closing minutes be- fore Frazier iced the game with his free throws. SCORES M The 6-fooH guard from South- ern Illinois paced all scorers with 36 points, while Stan Mc- Kenzie scored 27 points for of them in the final period. New York's Jerry Lucas and Portland's Geoff Pet- rie each had 24. The Knicks, who have won seven of their last eight games, now trail Boston Celtics by games in the NBA's Atlantic Di- vision. Portland, 8-27, is in the Pacific Division cellar, a whop- ping 24% games back of Los Angeles Lakers. A former Atlanta player, Butch Beaixt, scored 30 points to spark the Cavaliers. Walt We ley also had 30 for Cleveland. The Suns led Chicago by as much as 11 points in the second hall, tat after Phoenix forward Connie Hawkins fouled out with remaining, the Bulls went ahead 98-98 on a basket by Jim King with to go. Dick Van Arsdale, who led all scorers with 28 points, sent the game into overtime with 13 sec- onds left, but Chicago outecored the Suns 19-10 in the extra pe- riod. Kiner jailed after eliase BE NT ON, Tenn. (API .Sieve Kiner, linebacker for New England Pair i o I s of the Na- tional Football League, was ar- rested Wednesday n ig 1) t and charged with possession of nar- cotics, driving while intoxicated and driving without a licence. .Stale trooper Lloyd Hood said he pulled Kiner's vehicle over after "he came through at high rale of speed." Hood said Kiner told him he did not have a driver's license mid agreed lo follow Hood tn the county jail in Benton. But Hood said Kiner took off in another direction and was halted after a second chase. Troopers said a substance identified in a field test as nar- cotics also was found in the car. Orr the only Bruins ahead him. If lie goes on to surpass his 38-M-72 figures for the entire 1970-71 season, Perreault will be the first Calder Memorial Tro- phy winner in 10 years to im- prove in his second year on ttie record that earned him the rookie award. Dave Keon of To- ronto Maple Leafs was the last man to beat the jinx. The Bruins were leading 1-0 in the first period Thursday, when Perreault went into action. With Orr in the penalty box, he passed to Eddie Shack, whose shot off the back boards bounced to Richard Martin in front of the Boston net, setting up the goal. Buffalo rookie's 22nd last year, was less The Bruins struck back with two quick goals at the start o! the second period before Per- reault struck again, taking a goalmouth pass from Martin to beat Eddie Johnston. The third period had barely started when defenceman Jim Watson caught Perreault with a pass near the blue line and the young centre raced in to fire a sizzling 30-footer past Johnston for the tying goal. BREAKS AWAY Three minutes later, he blocked a shot by Boston de- fenceman Ted Green and broke away with Mike Byers, setting his line-mate up 10 feet in front of the goal to give the Sabres the lead for the first time. Ken Hodge tied the score on passes from Esposilo and Orr a minute later and Johnston and Buffalo goalie Dave Dryden closed the door thereafter. "Anytime I can tie Boston I'm said Buffalo coach Punch Imlach, adding that he considers the Bruins the best team in the league. Coach Tom Johnson of the Bruins, runaway winners of the division happy. "We make a lot of teams look he said. "We relaxed a little after we got two-goal lead. Then we couldn't get going again."
