Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Monday, 30, 1974 Rookie goalie remembers 11-3 By THE CANADIAN PRESS Goalie Curt Ridley recorded his first National Hockey League victory Sunday night but he still was having trouble forgetting his first loss. Ridley made his first appearance for New York Rangers 10 days ago in Boston and gave up six goals before coach Emile Francis took him out of the match which the Bruins won 11-3. The Winnipeg native stopped 25 shots against the expansion Kansas City Scouts Sunday night to help the Rangers win 2-1. "This game will have to help my he said. "I was nervous tonight. I was thinking, 'I just hope like hell I don't have another game like Boston.' "When you get that many goals scored on you in that short a time, you begin to wonder. But I feel better now." In other games Sunday, New York Islanders goalie Glen Resch shut out Washington Capitals 7-0, Philadelphia Flyers beat Buf- falo Sabres 5-2 and Chicago Black Hawks defeated St. Louis Blues 5-2. Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Islanders 3-1 Saturday, Chicago edged Philadelphia 2- 1, Atlanta Flames tied 3-3 with Pittsburgh Penguins, Montreal Canadiens whipped Kansas City 7-2, California Seals defeated Los Angeles Kings 3-2, Vancouver Ca- nucks beat Boston 64 and St. Louis defeated Minnesota North Stars 4-2. Billy Fairbairn's third- period goal broke a 1-1 tie at New York and gave Rangers the win over Kansas City. "I got the puck and I'm sav- ing it as a souvenir for my said Fairbairn whose first son was born during the game. "My wife Lloydene called after the second period and told me we had a said Fairbairn. "I told her I would go out and score the winning goal." He did just that, taking a pass from Brad Park and put the puck between Kansas City goalie Peter McDuffe's legs from about 10 feet out. At Landover, Md., Resch had to make only 19 saves for his second shutout of the season, beating the expansion Capitals who finished 1974 with just three victories in 37 games. If Ken Desjardine wasn't sure how it felt to knock a puck into his own net in a World Hockey Association overtime game, he knows now. The Indianapolis Racers de- fenceman tipped an attempted Edmonton pass directly past goalie Ed Dyck to give the Oilers a 5-4 margin in the overtime game Sunday at Edmonton. The goal was credited, to Tom Gilmore, his second of the game, as the Oilers es- caped from a last-place tie with Vancouver Blazers in the Canadian Division. In other games Sunday, Minnesota Fighting Saints shut out Cleveland Crusaders 6-0, Michigan Stags edged Chicago Cougars 4-3, and Houston Aeros defeated Win- nipeg Jets 6-3.
