Manceau of the Browning Boxing Club was lucky enough to avoid this blow, but couldn't seem to get out of the way of others as he dropped the 85-lb. decision to Ahachuk in one of 23 bouts staged in the first day of the Kainai Gloves amateur boxing card Friday night. More action is slated for today at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion. Detroit Red Wings continue to look like the joke of the NHL season By GLENN COLE Canadian Press Staff Writer Detroit Red Wings continued to look like the joke of the 1973-74 season Friday night at the Montreal Forum. The Red Wings, who have used six goaltenders this season and have made numerous other changes, dropped a 9-4 National Hockey League game to Montreal Oilers need excuses, but Gordie Howe doesn't CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oilers of the World Hockey Association keep looking for in their longstanding slump bat Gordie Howe of Houston Aeros keeps proving he doesn't need any. Howe struck for three goals in the first two periods Friday night to lead the Aeros to a M victory over Los Angeles Sharks as Houston remained 12 points ahead of the second- place Minnesota Fighting Saints. He opened scoring after only 20 seconds of play and helped the streaking Aeros, who have nine points more than New England Whalers who lead the Eastern Division, to a 5-3 margin before the second period ended. Howe now has 25 goals. New England regained sole possession of top spot in the East by whipping Edmonton 7- 3 In other games, Minnesota moved two points ahead of Winnipeg by whipping the Jets 7-1 on the strength of a three- goal performance by Mike Walton and the last-place New Jersey Knights downed Cleveland Crusaders 6-2.

"It was a laugher, "said coach Scotty Bowman after Montreal snapped a two-game losing streak with its third win over Detroit in four meetings this season. Defenceman John Van Box- meer, brought up from Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the Hockey League when a rash of injuries hit the Canadiens defence corps, scored his first NHL goal on a power-play in the third period. "It would be nice to play the power said Van Box- meer. "But really, it's nice just to play." Detroit goalie Doug Grant stopped 19 while Wayne Thomas kicked aside 33 in the Montreal goal. The Canadiens jumped to a 1-0 lead with 10 seconds gone in the first period on a goal by Yvan Cournoyer and scored four more before the session ended, all of them resulting from Detroit defensive miscues. Cournoyer added another goal early in the third period, taking a breakaway pass from Chuck Lefley. Thomas also picked up an assist on the play, his second of the year. Frank Mahovlich also had a pair of goals for Montreal with Guy Lapointe, Lefley, Henri Richard and Peter Mahovlich adding singles Pierre Jarry, Doug Roberts, Nick Libett and Mickey Red- mond scored for the Red Wings Greg Sheppard scored twice in the first period to start the visiting Bruins on their way to a hard-fought triumph over Vancouver.
