Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Red Wings drop to cellar Sabres register second shutout f.bruary 13. 1971 THE LEIHBSIDGE HERALD By THE CANADIAN PRESS For Buffalo Sabres, the chance to blank the opposition has been anything but frequent in their first season in the Na- tional Hockey League. One of the lowest-scoring teams in the league, the expan- sion Sabres are also one of the teams having the most goals scored against them. In their 55 games played since entering the NHL this season, the Sabres have allowed 206 goals. Only Detroit Red Wings, with 207 goals scored against them in 34 games, have allowed more. But Friday night the Sabres shut out their opposition for the second time this season, blank- ing California Golden Seals Ml in one of two NHL games ached- they stopped Minnesota North tiled. The win moved the Sabres into fifth place in the eastern Division, one point ahead of Vancouver Canucks and two points in front of the Red Wings who were defeated 5-3 by the Canucks in the other game. The first shutout for the Sabres came last Dec. 6 when Acting could increase WINNIPEG (CP) The Ca- nadian Football League, in one of the final decisions at its an- nual meeting, has decided to enter the motion picture field. The League's four-day meet- ing ended Friday with the exec utive committee rejecting i Winnipeg proposal to enter a lottery, approving changes in the injury-reserve list and possi- ble changes in the individual-a- ward system of voting. Clubs now have the option of leaving a player on the injury list for the full 30 days or re- turning him to the roster after four games. The CFL also is investigating the possibility of having the Football Reporters of Canada become the sole voters both for the individual trophies presented annually and for the Schenley awards. The step could eliminate the current di- lemma of one player winning the trophy for the most valuable player in his conference, but an- other player being selected as the Schenley nominee. ACCEPTS MOVIE PLAN Commissioner Jake Gaudaur told a news conference the league accepted his proposal to "venture cautiously into the mo- tion picture field." "This could be a very big po- tential Gaudaur said. "The league stands to benefit both through exposure and the development of a new source of revenue." The commisioner said the films would be 'aimed at televi- sion, with cassette companies already preparing attachments to make film cassettes playable through television sets. Although the product was not on the market, it was expected in the preliminary stages, to bs available by the end of the year. The commissioner also sail the league, which has solurgh in the NHL draft last June. Eddie Shack, who celebrated his 34th birthday Thursday, scored the opening goal for the Sabres on a power play early in ;he first period and about three minutes later Donnie Marshall made it 2-0 by steering Phil Goyette's goalmouth pass past California goalie Gary Smith. Floyd Smith scored the other Buffalo goal while the Sabres were shorthanded. Goalie Jim Rutherford, who kept Detroit Red Wings in the ;ame with Vancouver until late n the third period when the score was tied 3-3, kicked out 43 shots. But the Canucks scored wo unanswered goals late in the game for the win before a standing room-only crowd of Mike Corrigan paced the Can- ucks with two goals wWle Bobby Schmautz, Rosalre Paie- ment and Andre Boudrias scored one each. Tim Eccle- stone, Mike Robitaille and Nick libett scored for Detroit. In games tonight, the Seals meet the Canadians in Mont- real, Los Angeles Kings play ;he Maple Leafs at Toronto, to?
