Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Doconlbor 26, 1970-------- "IK North, Slurs triumphi scores Ky NICK KEHHIS Canadian I'ress Staff Writer Centre Norm Ullman or To- ronto Maple Leafs became the seventh player in National Hockey League history to crack the 400-goal mark Friday night but probably would have picked better conditions under which to celebrate the feat. The Provost, Alia., native, who turns 35 today, fired a pair of goals while Toronto snapped a seven-game undefeated string, bowing 6-3 to Minnesota North Stars. In the only other scheduled game, Boston Bruins dumped Pittsburgh Penguins 8-4. TMIrnan, who nlaypd with De- troit Red Wings for 12 seasons and the better part of another before being traded to Toronto during the 1967-68 season, rapped in his 17th goal of the season after Minnesota jumped to a 2-0 lead, narrowing the Slcni Fischler's BRITISH "GOLDEN GIRL" DIES-Lillian Board, the cancer-stricken "Golden Girl" of British athletics died in a Munich hospital today after losing consciousness doctors said A spokesman for the university Clinic in Munich, where she had undergone an opera- tion Wednesday issued the statement to the public. U sounded different Coaches protest horn By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A horn is a horn Is a horn. Or is it? Friday night's Cleveland sion team has a 3-37 record, said. In the other Christmas day NBA. games, Phoenix Suns Cavaliers Cincinnati Royals downed Atlanta Hawks 127-115; in the National Basket-1 Philadelphia TGers won its sixth straight with a 105-100 conqest of Detroit Pistcns and Los An- geles Lakers trimmed Boston Celtics 123-113. Cousy protested because Cleveland was permitted a field goal after the horn sound- ed. Tom Van Arsdale and Norm Van Lier each scored 23 points to pace the .Royals wliile Dave Sorenson led Cleveland with 20. Phoenix: took an early 17- point lead but had to stave off a late Atlanta rally to beat the Hawks. Lou Hudson, the game's leading scorer with 33 points, led the Hawks rally. Dick Van Arsdale scored 32 for the Suns. game ball Association was played under protest because the 2-3- second clock horn- sounded different, at 1 e a s t to Cavalier coach Bill Fitch, than most other 24-second clocks. Cincinnati Coach Bob Cousy, whose Royals won 117-100, also filed a protest because the ref- erees, w h o apparently didn't recognize the sound made by the 2-1-second timing device in Cincinnati, 1 e t Cleveland con- tinue with the ball after the sig- nal. Fitch said the signal fcr the 24-second clock was the same as the Scoreboard signal and that's an NBA rule violation. "If the rule book means any- thing, our protest is the Baltimore's victory over Chi Cleveland coach, whose expan-; cago came despite a 42-point performance by the Bulls' Bi Love. The Bullets were pacec by Earl Monroe's 25 points. Two crucial free throws the waning minutes by H Greer, who wound up with points, helped Philadelphia ou last Detroit. Dave Brag wa Detroit's top scorer, with points. Jerry West scored 32 point. Happy Hairston 29 and Wi Chamberlain 24 to lead the L; kers past Boston. John Hav] cek paced the Celtic offenc with 25 pouits.

Best Wishes Of The Season to One mid All Inside Hockey SyffliSiililSI'JB npLEKE is a pervasive feeling among thinking hockey me that the Boston Bruins will brutalize their way to th Stanley Cup. Tliuy cite evidence of brawl after brawl involvin coach Toni Johnson's team and the fact that no team ca handle Boston's in fighting. Brian Conacher, who quit Lhe NHL in disgust at ths prim- of his career, is one of the few analysts gutsy enough t speak out against the Bruins' brand of ice mayhem, otherwis known as gang warfare. "The Bruins will single out a guy and jump sail Conacher who now is a sports telecaster in Windsor. "Yoi can see the pattern over recent years Pat Quinn take Bobby Orr and he's jumped; it happened to Forbes Kenned; when he was with the Leafs and it happened to the Rangers With the Bruins it's usually not a one-on-one situation, they do it in pairs or more." Conachers' point has been underlined in a sense, by Bos ton center Derek Sanderson, who recalled that retired coac Harry Sinden was the man who set the pattern for Bruins saturation bombing whenever a teammate got hit. "We were in said Sanderson, and Harry turnec to our rookies and said: "If any of you kids want t do something out there, if you want to' fight or you want Ic hit, tb it. You've got of the world's toughest hockey on your side. You'll get backed up. Nobody's going to tea: you apart in this building or any other building in the league." As a result, wherever the Bruins skate, they inevitably seem to become involved in what erupts into the bigges brawl in that particular arena's history. On November 8, 1970 it happened against the Canadiens in Boston Garden of al places. "Hitting is our explained Ken Hodge when the blood had ceased flowing, "and Montreal is a team that doesn't like to be hit. That's their history. So when we startec hitting them, well things happened." Keith Magnuson, the presiding heavyweight champion of the Black Hawks, has studied the Bruins' style and offered tliis explanation: A team can go into Boston and can be intimidated by a lot of Bruins. For example, Minnesota went in there one night early this season and got beaten, 5-0. "You can just see that they were intimidated because the shots on goal were something like 60-29 for Boston. Minnesota probably wasn't hitting. But one good fight on their part and the whole picture could change in their favor." Magnuson has tried to blunt the Boston bombardment with some of IKS own clobbering. Early in December the Black Hawks and Bruins staged one of Chicago stadiums Biggest bludgeoning contests and Magnuson emerged a bloody loser to Bobby OIT. However, unlike the legion of Orr worshipers, Magnuson pointed out that the Boston Wunderkind is not exactly MISTER JLEAN on ice. "Orr snuck a punch at me in the first said "and I had to give it back to him sooner or later. Once you let them get away with something, you've had it." Ranger all-star defenserran Brad Park also perceives this jnong Ihe Bruins' truculent trend "Wayne Carleton was never a fighter until he got to said Park. "But the Brains have changed his style. The trick is to hit right back." "Once you hit the added Magnuson, "You get hem rattled." But, to do so, the other teams have to have the fighters o cany out the strategy and, at the moment, no club comes ear having the armament of Sanderson, OIT, Ted Green, 'ayne Cashman, John McKcnzic, Don Awrey, Ken Hodge and Jon Marcotte, to name a few choice bruisers. To cope with the Brains' hyperhostility some teams are eefing up their lineups with big, although not necessarily alentcd, players, as a result NHL quality continues to de- crease wliile brawling increases. "You can see it all over the Junior Hockey said onacbcr. "There's more fighting than ever with the result >at the art and skills are being taken out of the game." "What disturbs me about the Conacher is that they're the MIL'S most talent-laden team and they >n'l have to play roitghousc to win. But they seem to think icy do and they think tlicir image is more irarketablc than they play it straight. So, what we now have are organized trcet fights on ice." count lo 2-t after 20 minutes. Danny Grant scored his first of two goals to give Die North Stars a 3-1 lead early in the sec- ond period but Ullman and Ron Ellis tallied late in the period to tie the score. STAItS STH1KE HACK However, Minnesota bange< in three unanswered goals in the final period to snap its five- game winless streak. The loss left the Leafs lied in fourth spot in the East Division standings with Vancouver Can- ucks. Each team has 29 points, seven behind third-place Mont- real Canadiens. Minnesota moved into third place in the West Division, two points ahead of Philadelphia Flyers, who have 29. At Boston, the high-flying Bruins overcame a 2-0 first-pe- riod deficit as thev ran their un- beaten streak to 10 consecutive games. Phil Esposito, runaway leader in the NHL scoring race, Jolmny Bucyk and Don Mar- cotte each scored twice to pace Boston. Esposito's goals were his 31sl and 32nd of the season, and with an assist picked up in the game, gave him C3 point, 16 more than team-mate Bobby Orr, who also gained an assist. FJKE SIX GOALS The Bruins scored six succes- sive goals, three in the first pe- riod and three in the second, to take a 6-2 lead. The teams ex- changed goals in the final 20 minutes. Les Binklcy and Al Smith faced 51 shots in the Pittsburgh net. Gerry Cheevers stopped 23 of the 32 shots directed his way in Boston's goal. The win gave Boston 53 points and sole possession of first place in the East Division, two points ahead of NOT York- Rangers.
