Canadians edge Flyers 2-1 Richard frustrated, throws his stick MONTREAL (CP) For Henri Richard, the 1971-72 Na- tional Hockey League season has been especially frustrating. Take Montreal Canadiens' 2-1 win over Philadelphia Flyers Monday night for example. With 10 seconds left in the game, Richard, the Canadiens' team captain, picked up a puck at the Habs' line and fired it to- wards the vacant Flyers' goal. The puck missed the yawning twine by 15 feet and Richard's stick flew out of his hand in dis- gust. It missed the net too. Richard has scored only 10 tunes so far this season. Last year he scored 12. "First, let's get it straight that I'm not Richard. "But it is a fact that I've never been on a power play. "When you're on the power play, you're sure to get an odd easy goal or an assist. When you do, you loosen up and get your confidence back. Right now, I've lost my confidence.' FAVELL SHARP The Canadiens generally had a difficult time getting anything goalie from the Philadelphia defence and slipped the puck to Mahov- lich who was 15 feet in front of the goal. With Flyers defenceman Ed Van Impe covering him, Mahov- lich faked a shot and Van Impe slipped. Then the big winger moved over a couple of steps and fired a backhander into the net Favell, who had won five of his last six starts, banged his stick in disgust. Favell, who had stomach cramps as a result of eating a pastrami sandwich Sunday night, said he expected Mahov- lich to shoot "I never saw the Fav- ell said. "I could feel it go off the edge of my pad but I never saw it." The Canadiens-Flyers game was the first NHL game held on a Monday night in Montreal in 21 years.

And what more logical place to look for a hockey fight under the Florida sun than in the spring camp of the once zany New York Mets? The altercation between out- fielder Tim Foil and coach Joe Pignatano occurred following an apparent misunderstanding over tickets to a minor-league hockey playoff match Sunday night. Pignatano is reported to have asked that eight tickets be left in his name and that of man- ager Gil Hodges, but when he arrived only two tickets were there. Foli and some other play- ers were occupying the rest of the seats. Foil and Pjganatano had words before Monday's 9-8 exhi- victory over Detroit Ti- gers and each man is reported to have thrown a punch before coaches Yogi Bern, Eddie Yost and Billy Connors broke it up. Hodges discussed the matter with both combatants and said no disciplinary action would be taken. they settled for a two-hit 2-1 triumph over Cincinnati Reds. Pittsburgh Pirates broke out of a brief losing streak with a three-run rally in the eighth in- ning, climaxed by Richie Zisks's two-run homer, for a 6-5 victory over Chicago White Sox. Baltimore Orioles, who man- aged only one run in each of their previous two contest, scored four times in the third inning and trimmed Texas SEAVER IN TROUBLE But the really bad news for the Mets came when star pitcher Tom Seaver reported stiffness in his shoulder for the second time in three days. Seaver, who was scratched from a scheduled turn on the mourd Sunday, threw batting practice instead and the shoul- der stiffened again overnight. The Mets' batting star against Detroit was rookie John Milner, who homered in the seventh in- ning and capped a three-run eighth with an RBI single. Los Angeles Dodgers got super pitching for the second day in a row. Al Downing, Mike Strahler and Jim Brewer had a tough act to John, Bill Singer and Pete Rieh- ert hurled a one-hitter Sunday against Atlanta Braves-arid TORONTO (CP) Toronto Maple Leafs announced Monday that left-winger Brian Spencer has been sidelined for the re- mainder of the National Hockey League season with a broken knee cap. A team spokesman said Spen- cer struck his left knee against the boards late in the third pe- riod of a game here Saturday night against California Golden Seals. "He finished the game Satur- day night and travelled with us to Minnesota Sunday night but he wasn't able to play against the North Stars. "He'll haw an operation on the knee probably Wednesday and he's out for the rest of the season." The 22-year-old native of Fort St. James, B.C., has been a fa- vorite of the fans at Maple Leaf Gardens since he first joined the team last season. This season, he was relegated to spot duty and didn't score a goal and was sent down to the Leafs' Central Hockey League farm club at Tulsa Jan. 14. fans here missed him and a sign demanding "Bring Spinner Back" often appeared in the Gardens. He rejoined the Leafs March 1 and scored his first goal of the season three nights later in a game here; against Los An- geles Kings. Rangers 5-2. Boog Powell stroked a pair of RBI singles. Newly-acquired Le e May rapped out three hits, as did Roger Metzger, as Houston As- tros downed the .winless St. Louis Cardinals 4-2. Orlando Ce- peda played six innings but didn't really have to test his worrisome knee in 1-0 squeaker over New York Yan- kees. Blue Moon Odom, trying to come back from an elbow ail- ment and a gunshot wound, worked two scoreless innings against Cleveland but the Indi- ans had already battered Ken Holtzman for all their runs en route to a 7-6 triumph over Oak- land Athletics. San Diego Padres ripped 13 hits, including home runs by Jerry Morales and Larry Stahl, and pounded San Francisco Giants 9-3. Chicago Cubs got strong pitch- scoreless innings from Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham, key bits by Jenkins and Ken Rudolph and trounced Milwaukee Brewers 12-2. Rogelio Moret pitched three shutout innings as Boston Red Sox nipped Philadelphia Phillies 3-2. Kansas City Royals snapped a tie on sixth-inning doubles by Amos Otis and Lou PinieUa and downed Montreal Expos 4-2. Five pitchers combined for a two-hitter as the minor league Salt Lake City team surprised the parent California Angels 2-0. Cleveland's B squad edged Hiro- shima Carp of the Japanese League 6-5. LABOY IN LEG CAST WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. CAP) Montreal Expos have announced that third baseman Coco Laboy's right leg will be placed in a cast for a period of one week "as a healing aide." Laboy has been, experiencing some discomfort from a spring training strain of the right knee. The knee was injured while Laboy played winter baseball in Puerto Rico. Each buyer deposits Six groups eye NHL franchise By KEN PRITCHARD NEW YORK (CP) The Na tional Hockey League, which be- comes a 16-team circuit this fall, will award two more fran begin play in the 1974-75 a governors meeting here May 25. League president Clarence S. Campbell said Monday that six groups have made de- posits in what has developed into a stampede to get into the league. More applications are expected. The deposits have been put down by four Kansas City area in Kansas and two in Cincinnati and Baltimore interests. None of the groups has a suit- able arena. But by making the expansion decision now, the league will provide time for the successful applicants to provide them. The Cincinnati applicants are a prime example. The Cincin- nati Hockey Club Corp., whose chairman is Wiliam 0. DeWitt, baseball owner and executive for many years, took a suite at the Plaza Hotel, where the NHL governors are meeting, to pro- mote its application. With graphs, photographs and elaborate printed literature, the group has been seeking to con- vince the NHL governors that Cincinnati is an ideal market for hockey in all respects from location to personal income of the residents. Brian E. Reeking, a young lawyer who is president of the Cincinnati group, says a fran- chise must be assured, however, before the city can proceed with construction of a new mil- lion arena near Riverfront Stad- ium, new home of the Cincinnati Reds of the National Baseball League. The NHL governors consi- dered some "troublesome terns" Monday and will con- inue their deliberations today, Campbell said. The problems are thought to nclude a Players Association demand for a share for each member of the team win- ning the Stanley Cup, compared with the present Campbell noted that post-sea- son awards have been exemptet from U.S. wage and price con- trols but that there has not yet been an equivalent permission to increase NHL prices to cover higher awards. Application had been made and "we anticipate favorable he said. OPPOSE GAMBLING Campbell disclosed that the NHL would join other profes- sional sports in opposing New York state proposals to legalize gambling on team sports. "We are resisting this devel- opment because of the possible evil consequences or he said, mentioning the risk of scandals. "Any loss of public confidence would be tremen- dously damaging to snort." An amendment to the state constitution and approval by public referendum would be re- juired to legalize gambling. Campbell believed this could not be carried out before 1974. The NHL security division has >een working on plans to im- prove security in arenas and Campbell said will be made to franchise owners at the end of the season. Improve- ments might include structural changes to protect players and officials passing from dressing rooms to the ice. The governors are to discuss today the proposed affiliation of the Western and Central Hockey Leagues. Campbell said he had no knowledge of a report the Oak- land Seals are for sale. The gov- ernors had not authorized any such move. Campbell and three others re- ceived Lester Patrick Awards Monday night at a banquet. The awards, in memory of the long- time general manager and coach of New York Rangers, are for meritorious service to hockey in the U.S. The other recipeints were Ralph (Cooney) Weiland, who retired last year as Harvard icckey coach after 50 years in the sport; John (Snooks) Kelley, retiring this year after 36 years as coach of Boston College jockey teams, and James D. Vorris, former league governor, bouored pofthumously. Because when you need a truck, ypu need more than a truck. huge Hertz standby fleet, you're sure of getting it-fast.
