The 25-year-old forward from Haileybury, Ont, scored three goals Tuesday night, including the winner in the last minute of play, for a 54 Vancouver Can- ucks upset of the powerful Bos- ton Bruins.

Edmonton took a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes of play and scored another two in the sec- ond period. Brian Ogilvie scored in the second period to keep Red Daer from being shut out. The teams battled through a scoreless third period. Edmonton's hard-fought vic- tory came with goals by Mel Gushattey, Terry Covanagh and Ross Barros. Brian Rimmer stopped 30 shots against the Movers' net and Jerome Keller made 26 saves for Red Deer. The Movers took five of nine minor penalties, before the 450 fans. The victory was a costly one for the Rustlers in then- bid to nail down first place. The defeat left the Red Deer club two points ah'ead of the second-place Lethbridge Sugar Kings as the league schedule hits the homestretch and sets the stage for a crucial battle between the two teams in Leth- bridge Saturday night. The Sugar Kings also host Ponoka Stampeders Sunday af- ternoon. ANDY CAPP THEY'VE TAKEN "lOLJR THREE Minor hockev The Red Wings skated to an 8-2 victory over the Maroons with Ed Yalowega.

He was as good a de- fenceman as I'd ever seen. He reminded me of Doug Harvey, only he skated better." That's Bud Poile, general manager of Vancouver Can- ucks, talking about his prize Tallon, a 20- year-old who broke into the Na- tional Hockey League as the country's second-best junior in the second-toughest position in the game. "I haven't changed my mind either. Tallon should be a super- star in this league in two or three years."

Victory came 25 minutes be- fore lunch on the fifth day when Derek Underwood dismissed Terry Jenner and Australia was all out for 160. The win gave England a 2-0 final edge in the series and ended Australia's 12-year-long hold on the fictional Ashes.

But it lost its last five wictets for only 37 runs in 20.6 overs. Australia's hopes of winning rested with overnight batsmen Greg C h a p p e 11 and Rodney Marsh, who came together Tuesday with Australia 96 f o r But in the sixth over of the morning with the total 131, they were parted when left-arm soin- ner Underwood bowled Marsh. Marsh drove over a delivery thrown well up to him and the ball shot through to knock back his leg stump. Eleven runs later ChappeV was out having made 30 in 13; minutes. The 22-year-old right- hander pushed forward at Tiling- worth, moved well out of his ground and presented wicket- keeper Alan Knott with a simple stumping. Underwood came off after bowling seven overs for only eight runs and in medium-pacer Basil d'Oliveira's first over Aus tralia lost two more wickets with the total 154.

He's tall, dark and handsome fan mail invariably in- cludes the phone number of some star-struck admirer. He dresses like a male model and admits he's enough of a ham to enjoy the hoopla which has sur- rounded him since he first laced on his skates at the Canucks' training camp in Calgary last fall. The fuss followed his selection in the NHL amateur draft right behind Gil Perrault, the high- scoring Montreal centre who went to Buffalo Sabres after spin of a roulette wheel gave Sabres first pick. "The big thing is not to let it go to your says Tallon whose 10 goals and 24 assists puts him sixth in the club scor- ing statistics. 'I try to take it in stride am not let it bother me. When look back, I realize how al along my dad was grooming me for this and how good a job he did." His father, who once played defence for Eddie Shore S'pringfield, convinced him take a shot at playing in the On tario Hockey Association Junior A series, wellspring of future NHL talent. Despite the fact that he'd scored something like 70 goal as a centre in his last season o juvenile, Dale wasn't sure h was good enough. At 16, he drafted by Os- yea: Bobby Orr was signed by Boston. The Generals were a disaster; they finished ninth, just in front of Ottawa 67s, the OHA's newest team. A trade took him to Toronto Marlboros and in his second and last year at the Gardens, team injuries forced coach Gus Bod- nar to move him to defence for 27 games. "That was about the time peo- ple were starting to talk about first and second amateur draft Tallon said.

Argos nab top lineman TORONTO (CP) Toronto Argonauts have signed Jim Stillwagon. a virtually unani- mous choice as United States college lineman of the year, and are still pursuing Joe Theis- mann, the No. 2 college quarter- back, coach Leo Cahill told a news conference Tuesday. Stillwagon, a six-foot, 225- pound member of two Ohio State Rose Bowl teams, said he signed a two-year-contract with the Canadian Football League club because he felt he had a better chance to crack the Argo- naut lineup than that of Green Bay Packers, who made him their No. 5 choice in the Na- tional Football League draft. The 22-year-old defensive tac- kle and linebacker, named line- man of the year by U.S. college coaches at their recent meeting in Houston, Tex., was a Big Ten all-star for the last two years as well as a Consensus All-Amefi- to at All-America teams. least five Cahill. who called Stillwagon "the most heralded lineman ever to come to said he expects to use him as a de- fensive tackle. "His specialty is the coach said. "He'll rush the pas- ser. Then, if the pass is thrown, he goes all-out after the re- ceiver. He's the type of guy we need, a real leader on the field." ARGOS WERE EAGER Stillwagon said he accepted the Toronto offer because the Argonauts appeared more inter- ested than the Packers and be- cause the CFL offered him a chance to establish himself in a career while he is still playing football. Cahill said he hopes the ac- quisition of Stillwagon will help persuade Theismann, the Notre Dame quarterback who was runner-up for the Heismann Trophy award, to choose To- ronto over Miami Dolphins, who picked him in the draft. Negotiations with Theismann were at a standstill until he heard from Miami, said Cahill, adding that he is not negotiating with any other quarterback until he hears from Theismann. The Argonauts, who finished second in the Eastern Confer- ence last season with Tom Wilk- inson and Don Jonas sharing the job. have been reported to be competing with British Col- umbia Lions to lure Huss Jack- son out of retirement. But the former Ottawa Rough Rider quarterback's name was not mentioned Tuesday.
