Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta SO - THE tETHBRlDGE HERAID - ThurscJoy, February 15, 1973 .- Rangers" iviii streak comes to abrupt halt Henri passes his brother Rocket By IAN MacLAINE ' Canadian Press Staff Writer [ Henri Richard surpassed a career milestone set by his famous brother, Maurice, when Montreal Canadiens handed New York ti-3 setback Hockey League streak at games. But the Pocket Rocket confided after contributing a goal and an assist thac nis %8 career points, which gives him a one-point edge on Maurice (Rocket) Richard, didn't cross his mind Wednesday night to end the "until the papers started talk-Rangers' unbeaten National ing about it." 6 | "Sure it's nice," he admitted, ! but suggested the Canadiens six-point margin over the runner-up Rangers in the East Division race is not padding enough for the playoff run with 21 games to go. "We still have to keep winning," said Ric.vard. "If  3 lose one and they win one, then we Blazers share gnes By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bob Charlebois' two late goals 'at Quebec City got as much response in Philadelphia as did -the two by Danny Lawson, Avhose recent scoring heroics have lifted the Blazers into World Hockey Association playoff contenders. ; Chai-lebois' goals helped Ottawa Nationals to a 6-3 win over 'Quebec and coupled with a 6-5 -Philadelphia upset of Cleveland Crusaders moved the Blazers �into a fourth-place tie with Les Kordiques in the Eastern Division. ! It is the highest placing of the year for Philadelphia which jspent the early months of the season deep in the division cellar. : Tonight, Houston Aeros visit Alberta Oilers, Los Angeles Sharks are at New England fourth, yet Whalers, Winnipeg Jets visit Chicago Cougars and Minnesota Fighting Saints entertain Ottawa. The first goal by Chaiiebois, at 3:58 of the final period, broke a 3-3 tie and his second about five minutes later ensured the Nats victory. Jack Gibson added another in the final minute of play. NATS SHOW SPUNK Gavin Kirk, Rick Sentes and Guy Trottier scored the earlier Ottawa goals in front of 4,300 Quebec Coliseum fans, each time pulling the Nats from one-goal deficits arranged by Reynold Leclerc, Andre Gaudette, and Leclerc again in the relatively light-hitting contest in which referee Brent Casselman called only six minor penalties-three to each team. Ottawa, however, held a wide edge in play. They tested rookie Quebec goalie Richard Brodeur with 39 shots while Gilles Grat-ton in the Ottawa net faced only 26 Nordiques shots. Lawson, who had scored four goals the previous night, padded his league-leading goals total to 48 with two third-period scores. His power-play score at 11:58 cf the period tied the game and the winner came with 15 seconds left in regulation time. Don O'Donoghue also beat Cleveland goaltender Gerry Cheevers for two goals, the other Philadelphia scores going to Andre Lacroix and Don Burgess. Rich Pumple, Ron Buchanan, Paul Andrea, Jim Wiste and Joe Hardy shared the Crusader scoring against Philadelphia goalie Bernie Parent. One of the first rocks * - The annual Shirtsleeve Bonspiel got u nder way Wednesday evening at the Leth-bridge Curling Club with 64 rinks entered in the five-day event. Draws continue ".throughout the day today, Friday and Sat urday with the semi-finals and finals set -for Sunday afternoon. arc right back to where we were before tonight's game." And while the Canadiens were concerned about their stretch run for the Prince of Wales Trophy, Pittsburgh Penguins began a crucial live-game week by knocking over the visiting Vancouver Canucks 6-2. "This week is the key to the rest of the season," Pittsburgh coach Ken Schinkel said in a post-game interview. "We've got five games in a .week and we have to win at least four of tr�3m to get going," he added of the Penguins' playoff hopes in the West. The Penguins, with 52 points trail fourth-place St. Louis by six points after the Blues were dumped 5-2 by Minnesota North Stars. ' In other games, Buffalo Sabres trimmed Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 io iv.ovs i-ico a fou. Li-place tie in the East with Detroit after the Red Wings were held to a 2-2 tie by Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Black Hawks needed two third-period goals to defeat New York Islanders 4-2 and Atlanta Flames skated to a 3-3 tie with California Golden Seals at Oakland. Tonight the Sabres entertain the Rangers while Philadelphia Flyers are at home to Boston Bruins. Richard, Yvan Cournoyer Chuck Lefley, Boo Murdoch and Rejean Houle tallied for the Montrealers before the injury-plagued Rangers, who had put togeOhsr three consecutive 6-0 victories before being held to a 2-2 standoff by Montreal last Sunday, could find the range. VICKERS GETS 2 Then it was the only Ranger line still intact-Walt Tkaczuk, Steve Vickers and Bill Fair-bairn--that could solve rookie goaltender Michel Plasse who improved his NHL mark to 9-1-3 while subbing for injured Ken Pryden. Vickers scored twice in the third period and Tkaczuk with five seconds remaining in the game. Montreal coach Scotty Bowman agreed with his team captain's long-range assessment of the Canadiens' position. "How can you say a team like New York is out of it when they have piled up 81 points in 57 games. . . . Don't forget, we still have a lot of tough games remaining." The Penguins got goals from six different players while firing 40 shots at Vancouver goal-tender Dune Wilson. "We know what we're up against," said Schinkel, a 40-year-old winger with the Penguins until he hung up his skates Jan. 13 to replace fired Red Kelly. The Penguins have dropped from fifth to seventh under Schinkel, but several of their losses were against established dubs-three to Montreal. "We've been winning at home, and we'll be playing teams of our calibre, the rest of the way." Rene Robert, who was a Toronto bench-warmer in 1970-71, used his experience to advantage to help the Sabres, drilling a shot past Leaf goalie Jacques Plante.' The Buffalo winger, who got behind the Toronto defence for Ms 34th goal of the year, recalled later: "I know Plante. I used to taike shots at him in practice when I was here." Robert said he remembered .how the cagey veteran goaltender used to stick check the puck from him each time he got too close, so when the one-on-one situation arose Wednesday night "I didn't give him a chance." He drilled a low shot from about 10 to 12 feet in front of Plante that gave Buffalo a 3-1 lead. Nick Libett's second goal of the game salvaged Detroit's tie at Los Angeles. Pit Martin scored two first-period goals for the Black Hawks, but the pesky Islanders got solid goaltending from Gerry Desjardins and hung on until Jim Pappin notched the tie-breaker early in the third period.
