Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, February 14, 1974 BOOK NOW FOR OVERSEAS CHARTERS Departure diln and tarti now contact ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PhOM 321-3201 Pat Sullivan Watching Tuesday evening's Alberta Junior Hockey League between the Lethbridge Longhorns and the 'Pass Red Devils made me recall an item brought to the attention of this newspaper some time back. While Tuesday's game, one of the better ones this year, had its share of good, hard hitting cheap shots continue to creep in on proceedings. I'm not going to mention any names, or for that matter point the finger at either team. Both, I hate to say, are to blame. For the most part Tuesday the two clubs stuck to hockey. The game was fast and crowd appealing. But then there was a spearing in front of the Lethbridge net. No harm done, the stick hit the player where he is well padded. On two more occasions away from the play butt ends were thrown and then late in the game there were two deliberate attempts at injury off of faceoffs. I didn't see all that went on, so how can I single out any one club or individual. The point I'm trying to make is that occurrences like these are beginning to grow. What I fear most is where do you draw the line? Tuesday's game was probably the poorest game of the year as far as the officiating went. The rivalry between the Devils and Longhorns could have blown the Henderson Ice Centre apart. I can't imagine what may have taken place if the game had carried any real importance. The Devils are secure in fourth place, the Longhorns in last. All that was at stake was pride. Thank heavens for that. When an official loses control of a game, or as appeared to be the case Tuesday, is not able to keep up with the pace of action, it can be serious. But getting back to the article, actually there were two of them, done by two reporters from the Evening Tribune in San Diego. The topic of the two columns was Bob Gasoff who last year played with Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League and was drafted by St. Louis Blues. Gasoff, sent down to Denver Spurs of the Western League, had apparently almost decapitated an opponent some nights earlier than the stories on him appeared. Spurs, a woeful last in the league, are a drawing card on the road. In the game with San Diego the crowd was in excess of Why do the last place Spurs bring out the crowd? Mad Dog Gasoff, according to the stories from San Diego. It would be impossible to go into all of the two columns but here are a few excerpts from the two. It isn't hard to get enough from the two as they both take strips off Gasoff too big for even Johnson and Johnson to cover. The sport of hockey needs Bob Gasoff like Frank Sinatra needs singing lessons, says one column. He contributes nothing to the sport; he detracts greatly. Gasoff's best move is his squirming in the penalty box. He is only interested in himself and how much attention he can attract. He is a loser. Somebody should tell him hockey is played with a puck. The other column hints at possibly all the fault does not lie with Gasoff but with team officials. Spurs, says the writer, almost to a man were taping their hands before games much the same way as do fighters. The league set down a ruling that a letter from a doctor would be required for a player to have his hands taped. Two days later there were eight letters from the Spurs' team doctor. Visiting teams build up Gasoff. His style of play has brought back memories of the days when the Coliseum Scoreboard used to read Lions 7 Christians 0. I have only seen Gasoff play half a dozen times, but in that time I never saw him use bis stick. I saw him drop his gloves and throw punches with the best of them in the WCHL. Times certainly have changed for Bob Gasoff. I can't help wondering if times will change for some of the players who will graduate from the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

Hang on to edge Canadiens 3-2 Flames left gate quickly By GLENN COLE Canadian Press Staff Writer Boston Bruins came back from a three-goal deficit and Montreal Canadiens were unable to Wednesday night and now the Bruins hold a 12- point lead over Montreal in the battle for first in the National Hockey League's East Division. The Bruins spotted California a 4-1 lead in the first period and came back to score a 9-6 win over the Golden Seals while the Canadiens comeback attempt fell short as they were edged 3-2 by Atlanta Flames. In other action, Philadelphia Flyers downed Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1, Pittsburgh Penguins clipped Detroit Red Wings 5-3, Minnesota North Stars and Vancouver Canucks battled to a 3-3 draw and Chicago Black Hawks blanked Los Angeles Kings 4-0. Brains 9 Golden Seals 6 Boston's Greg Sheppard opened the scoring in a wide- open contest with a shorthanded goal but the Seals came back with four goals in five minutes and 23 seconds to take the lead. However Boston scored four times in the second period and added three more in the final 20 minutes to wrap up the win. Veteran Johnny Bucyk scored three of them back-to-back in the second put Boston ahead 6-5 and the Seals never recovered. Phil Esposito set up two goals to raise his season's total to 101 points marking the fourth consecutive year he has managed 100 points or more. He now has 999 points lifetime in NHL play. Flames 3 CandieBS I Veteran Bobby Leiter scored twice and Larry Romanchych once in the opening period, and the Flames withstood a third- period Montreal rally to take their third win in four meetings with the Canadiens this season and their second this month. "If we would have played the first two periods like we played the third, it would have been a different said Steve Shutt, Montreal's hard- shooting sophomore left winger." "They were picking their men up well and we weren't skating and it was a winning combination. Nobody was alert." The Canadiens were outshot 19-9 in the first period and 14-5 in the second and then roared back to outshoot the Flames 204 in the final 20 minutes. Shutt just missed tying the game when his low screened drive was stopped by goalie Daniel Bouchard's pad. "We should have won the game in the third Summaries BOSTON 0, CALIFORNIA B First Porlod 1.

"It seemed like they would get six or seven shots and then they wouldn't get any more for five or six added Flyers' netminder Bernie Parent. "That's the kind of game it was." Centre Rick MacLeish got his 21st and 22nd goals of the season to give the Flyers a 24 lead in the first period. "We gave them two goals said Toronto coach Red Kelly. "After those first two goals it was an uphill battle. Ever try to run Jean Pronovost scored two goals as the Penguins dumped Detroit to mane the home debut of Marc Boileau, the new Pittsburgh coach. After the game, it was an- nounced the Red Wings had completed a three-for-three deal with St. Louis Blues. The Blues, who have lost six in a row, sent defencemen Bryan Watson and Jean Hamel and forward Chris Evans to Detroit in exchange for forwards Garnet Bailey and Bill Collins and veteran defenceman Ted Harris. Second-period goals by Mur- ray Oliver and Bill Goldsworthy lifted the North Stars into their tie with the Canucks, who are unbeaten in their last four games. Buster Harvey got the other Minnesota goal with Bobby Lalonde, Gerry O'Flaherty and Don Tannahill replying for the Canucks. Tony Esposito blocked 42 shots to record his eighth shut- out of the year.

LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD Lewtr Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 ADDING MACHINES... Larks move in on gals9 hoop title Coaldale Kate Andrews Larks moved in on the 1973-74 Southwest Conference Girls' Basketball League pennant title by scoring a slim 38-37 victory over the Vauxhall Vi- Queens Thursday night. The hard-fought win was the Larks' seventh in eight starts and leaves them only one decision away from clinching at least a share of the pennant title. With just two games remaining on their league schedule the Larks can still be caught by the Winston Churchill Griffins who sport a 5-2 record Should the Griffins win their remaining three games and the Larks lose one, the two clubs will be deadlocked for first. The league constitution does not specifically state a tie- breaking method which would therefore leave the clubs sharing the tilt. In last night's encounter, the fourth place Vi-Queens held a four-point lead for three quarters of play but couldn't hang on to defeat the Larks. They led 10-6 after the opening quarter, 18-14 by the end of the second and 27-23 going into the final quarter. Bonny Stanko was oustanding for the Larks as she hooped 24 of their 38 points while Cindy Dorchak and Pat Skidmore notched 17 and 12 points respectively for the Vi- Queens. Meanwhile the Larks and Griffins will both see action Friday night. Larks will host Taber Dawns while the Griffins entertain the Picture Butte Sugar Queens. All six members of the girls' conference will hit the floor Saturday night with Vauxhall at Winston Churchill, Picture Butte at Coaldale and Taber at Fort Macleod. In Southwest Conference Boys' Basketball League play Friday night, Picture Butte travels to Winston Churchill, Coaldale visits Taber, Milk River rides to Fort Macleod and Stirling meet the Vikings in Vauxhall. Three games will also be staged in the Southern Alberta High School Basketball League this weekend. Friday night, Magrath is at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and Raymond is at Catholic Central- Saturday night the LCI will pay a visit to Cardston. SOUTHWEST CONFERENCE BOYS W L Pet.
