Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHbRIDGE HERALD Fridiy, December 27, 1974 Scores three goals, picks up two assists Lethbridge Midgets Trottier stars for Canada in first game win tourney opener By JOHN KOROBANIK The Canff-ttan Press Defending champion Soviet Union and Canada both had problems in the early stages of play Thursday but rallied strongly to record victories in the opening games of the world junior hockey tour- nament. Canada fell behind 2-0 to the United States team but with the help of a three goal effort from Bryan Trottier went on to a 9-3 triumph in Winnipeg. The Soviets were held to a 1- 1 deadlock through two periods before scoring three third-period goals for a 4-1 verdict over Finland in Bran- don. Next games in the six-team, round-robin tournament on Saturday will see Canada meet Sweden in Winnipeg and Finland play Czechoslovakia in Brandon. The U.S. team, made most- ly of players from the Midwest league, had things working in their favor through the first half of the game. But the Canadian team, se- lected from the Western Canada Hockey League turned things around with three con- secutive second-period goals and four unanswered markers in the final period. Added to Trottier's three goals were singles from Mel Bridgman, Brian Sutter, Mark Davidson, Dale McMullin, Kelly Greenbank and Jim Manor. Trottier and Sutter are both members of the Lethbridge Broncos and are presently sitting in second and third' spot in the WCHL scoring race. Larry Solvedt, Greg Woods and George Kryzer scored for the U.S. The US., with a 2-1 lead after the first period had some excellent chances to widen their margin early in the second but they failed to do so. And when Mel Bridgman, the leading scorer in the WCHL, tied the score at the momentum abrupt- ly shifted. It took Canada less than three minutes after Bridgman's tally to move into a 4-2 lead and once they had that margin they were unstop- pable Both coaches, Andre Beaulieu of the U.S. and Jackie McLeod of Canada, agreed the Americans were aggressive in the first period and had the Canadians off balance. But they had different reasons for the domination by Canada in the final 30 minutes. McLeod said it was a case of his club loosening up after the first period. "We were very tight at first. We coughed the puck up twice and it cost us. But we're basically a skating and pass- ing club and once we got going, things began happening for us." Troltier, the most effective player on the ice, scored three goals and added two assists for the Canadians who, he said, created many of their own problems in the first period by not following their game plan. "We weren't dumping the puck in and forechecking like we'd planned." "The turning point, really, was when our lack of ex- perience, especially defen- sively, began hurting us in the second period, and our morale went down as the score went said U.S. coach Andre Beaulieu.

The Canadians ex- perience really showed in the last period and a half." In Brandon, Victor Khatulev scored twice for the Soviets with Sergeir Abramov and Boris Barabonov getting the others. Jouni Rinne scored for Finland. But Soviet coach Yuri Moro- zov, speaking through an interpreter, said he was not satisfied with his team's per- formance. He said the game itself was "not despite the 12 penalties hand- ed out, six to each team. Finland's assistant coach Siren Esa said the game would have been much rougher in a smaller rink. "It should have been rougher, "he said, adding the contest was a typical Euro- pean clash with plenty of high sticks, especially in the cor- ners. The Soviet Union outshot the Finns 30-23 with tKe margin in shots coming in the third period when they outshot Finland 14-6.
