Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Bruins, Blues keep alive short streaks McLeish sets Flyers club mark By ED SIMON Canadian Press Staff Writer Four was the key number in the National Hockey League Tuesday night. Rick MacLeish became the first .Philadelphia player to score four goals in a game as the Flyers bombed New York Islanders &-2. And both Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues had four-game winning streaks going after the Bruins crushed Vancouver Canucks 7-3 and St. Louis defeated Los Angeles Kings 4-2. St.' Louis tries for five tonight against the North Stars at Minnesota in an effort to break a third-place tie in the NHL's Vest Division. New York Bangers return last Sunday's visit by Montreal Canadiens in the key game in the East after the Canadiens salvaged a 2-2 tie with two late goals in the last meeting between the two top clubs in the division. In other games tonight, Buffalo Sabres visit Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Black Hawks entertain the Islanders, the Canucks move to Pittsburgh against the Penguins and Atlanta Flames go against California Golden Seals and Detroit Red Wings face Los Angeles SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan J THINK, today; I have finally come to realize the impact of Lethbridge and southern Alberta playing host to the 1975 Canada Winter Games. I managed to get past Sunday and Monday without too much concern for the broad scgpe of activities which will be staged in our area in 1975. But now it has hit me, broadside. The year 1975 will be like no other. Not in the past, and in all likelihood, not in the future - after 1975 that is. For the next two years, as the Games will commence Feb. 11, 1975, our every move will be watched with great concern. We have 24 months to prove ourselves worthy of the Games committee's selection as Canada's host. We will have to form our own committees, board of directors and officials while Sports Canada officials scrutinize our decisions. But we should have little or no trouble at all, staging the most successful Games in the brief history of the national event. Saskatoon laid the groundworks for us, we simply must follow and improve upon. After all, we already have a mountain. From a personal standpoint, I'm delighted. There is no doubt in my mind that from time to time in the next 24 months you will find me in a daze, a daydream of how great a boon to our society the Games will be. If I were to refer to the Games as a possible saviour, I would not be too strong in my description. We need the Games. It will be like a overdose of adrenalin. Something we have been lacking for too many years now. To site just one example, a new Arena. Sure, I have a lot of my own interests at heart when I jump for joy over the announcement we will get a new Arena. Why not? The only rink of decent size we did have has burned down. We replaced it with a south side white elephant, Henderson Ice Centre - the north side has Adams Ice Centre. It's not easy to go to places like Medicine Hat and even Taber and view their facilities without embarrassment. We deserve better than* we have. And now, finally, it would appear we are about to get our just dues. We received the 1975 Canada Winter Games because a group of concerned people got together, formed an impressive bid for our area, and were successful. But the work is just beginning. A number of people have said to me, in just the short time since we were announced host of the Games, "you'll have your work cut out for you in the next two years." Certainly, I will. But I don't envy the Games committees themselves. They shoulder the responsibility of hosting the Games and showing the entire nation we were deserving. In my position I can simply reap the benefits. I'm not saying I intend to shirk responsibility if it comes my way. Not in the'least. I'm going to pitch in and help. Lethbridge is my home. I plan to stay here and raise my family here. With the 1975 Winter Games, this can only be a better place to live. Ihave always told people who ask me, that Lethbridge is a great place to live. A group of sportsmen have just possibly made it "the greatest place to live." Kings in a pair of West Coast fixtures. MacLeish, a 23-year-old centre who had scored only three goals in 43 appearances with the Flyers prior to this season, boosted his total to 34 for the current campaign when he scored twice within 27 seconds in the second period, for another club record, and again in the third That took the starch out of the Islanders, who had taken a 2-0 lead at the end of the first period even though they were outshot 15 to 8. The eastern tail-enders got away a total of 23 shots at Flyers' goaltender Doug Favell while Billy Smith had 44 Philadelphia drives to contend with. The Bruins, continuing their revival under new coach Bep Guidolin, struck for four goals in just over five minutes late in the first period to bury the Canucks, who had taken an early 1-0 lead. Vancouver had the only goal of the second period but the Stainley Cup champions struck back with three more goals, two on power plays, to put the game out of reach. They got two goals apiece from rookie Greg Sheppard and veteran Johnny Bucyk as well as the 37th of the season by NHL scoring leader Phil Es-posito. The Blues had tougher going at St. Louis, where goals by Gil- les Marotte and Mike Corrigan nearly wiped out their three-goal lead over the Kings before defenceman Barclay Plager batted in Garry Unger's rebound for the clinching goal. It was the 10th victory against only one loss and three ties in 14 games for the Blues, who were seventh in the eight-team division before their current surge. Summaries Bench hits six figures CINCINNATI (AP) - Johnny Bench, moving fast in the wake of lung surgery he feared would end his career, has signed a $100,000-plus contract that apparently will make him the highest paid player in Cincinnati Reds' history. The Reds confirmed the signing Tuesday after the Cincinnati Enquirer reported the slugging catcher had signed for about $115,000. General manager Bow How-sam said he had completed negotiations with Bench via telephone Monday. No details of the agreement, other than the fact that it is for one year, were revealed. Howsam said the contract "was in the six figures." Outfielder Pete Rose, who has not yet signed his 1973 contract, had been the highest paid Cincinnati playef ever, earning a reported $107,500 last season.

Adams need not worry BOSTON (AP) - An official of Storer Broadcasting Corp. says reports that Weston Adams Jr., will be dismissed as president of the National Hockey League Boston Bruins is "ridiculous." Storer has worked out a stock exchange deal with the Garden-Arena Corp. and is expected to take control of the team soon. A published report Tuesday said that Storer planned to drop Adams and Charles Mulcahy Jr., vice-president of the team, when the merger is complete. William Flynn, vice-president general manager of WSBK-TV. a subsidiary of Storer, said: "As far as I'm concerned, the story is ludicrous. We said we aren't hacking people and we aren't. "The whole thing is ridiculous. If the deal goes through, Adams is going to be a large stockholder in Storer." Adams said he didn't feel the merger posed any threat to him or his position with the Bruins. "Part of the agreement of the merger makes it mandatory that the administration personnel will stay," Adams said. "I'll be like all other Storer executives, and I don't believe there is any executive at Storer that has a contract." Adams, a member of the NHL board of governors, said: "I don't want a management contract. I've never had one before. If it's a situation where I can't do the job, then I shouldn't be here." POINTS OUT LOSSES A story in the Boston Herald-American said Storer executives had been unimpressed with Adams's performance, and held him responsible for the loss of goalie Gerry Cheevers and centre Derek Sanderson to the World Hockey Association, Cheevers jumped to the Cleveland Crusaders. Sanderson went to the Philadelphia Blazers for a reported $2.4 million, 10-year contract, but was recently released following a reported $1 million settlement of his contract and has subsequently teen signed again by the Bruins. The report said Mulcahy will be let go because officials feel he has been calling the shots in the front office for the last few years. Since the merger with Storer was announced, Tom Johnson has been fired as Bruins' coach and general manager Milt Schmidt has been "looking around" for a new job. Bep Guidolin replaced Johnson.
