MacDonald not after any change CALGARY (CP) As far as Wendell MacDonald of Charlottetown is concerned, they can keep the Canadian sensor men's curling cham- pionship on arena ice forever. Two of 11 championships have been played in arenas and MacDonald, a 66-year-old retired radiologist-physician, has won them both.

MacDonald won the 1971 ti- tle following a sudden-death playoff with Saskatchewan's Hurley Townsend in the Halifax Forum. This time, there was the danger of another playoff with Saskatchewan until Lyle Henry of Winnipeg blew takeouts with both his rocks in the 10th end of the final round to leave the Islanders a stolen pair. MacDonald, whose rink fin- ished 9-2, said he found the competition no tougher than the 10 other championships in which he has played. "Newfoundland was a dis- said the champ. "They were woefully weak this year." There was one factor that particularly pleased MacDonald about his victory.

Smith, who earned the nick- name Suitcase from the days when he played goal for To- ronto Maple Leafs and kept a suitcase handy for his fre- quent trips to the minors, was caught in the act of peeling six pairs of socks off his feet after he stopped 31 shots in a 4-1 Vancouver Canucks victory Friday over New York Islanders. "I set the NHL record last year by wearing nine pair of Smith said with a sheepish grin, "but now I'm down to six. "At the start of the year my skates fit me, but now they're miles too big and I could go to seven pairs." As long as Smith keeps the puck out of the took a 2.87 goals-against average into Friday's game and his 28 victories and six shutouts are second to Philadelphia's Ber- nie Canucks couldn't care if he played in his bare feet. The Vancouver victory, also aided by John Gould's three- goal performance, helped the Canucks increase their National Hockey League Smythe Division lead to seven points over Chicago Black Hawks. In other NHL games Friday, Buffalo Sabres beat Washington Capitals 9-4 and California Seals upset Boston Bruins 64. The Vancouver goalie was busy in the first period when the Islanders came out flying, pouring 15 of their 32 shots at Smith and taking a 1-0 lead on Bob Bourne's 30-foot slapshot at Gould tied the score early in the second period when he steered Mike Robitaille's long shot past Islander goalie Billy Smith, no relation to Gary. The deadlock lasted until of the final period when Gould tipped in Bob Dailey's long slap shot. The NHL sophomore com- pleted his first major league three-goal game by converting a passout from Greg Boddy at for his 26th goal of the season. Gerry Meehan's empty net goal finished the scoring at "Credit the first goal to Chris Oddleifson, who got the draw, and. Paulin Bordeleau, who passed to Gould said. "On the second one, 'the credit goes to Oddleifson and Moose Dailey's great shot from the point. On the third one, Greg Boddy did all the work in the corner." Washington suffered its 49th loss of the season while Buf- falo picked up its 37th victory, led by Craig Ramsay's three goals. Gilbert Perreault added two goals for the Sabres who in- creased their Adams Division lead to 13 points over Boston. California rookie Dave Hrechkosy scored his 24th and 25th goals of the season on power plays before the Seals' first sellout crowd of the sea- son. It was only their Uth sellout in eight years of NHL play and the first time the Seals have won before a full house. Phil Esposito scored his 53rd goal of the season for Boston and Bobby Orr added his 35th. Oiler crowds have dwindled By The CANADIAN PRESS The memory of sellout crowds and a five-game home winning streak appears to have faded fast for Edmonton Oilers. The World Hockey Associ- ation club drew a sellout crowd of to the opening of its new arena on Nov. 10 when they started a five-game win streak and' showed promise of rising from the Canadian Division cellar after a shaky season start. Now, three months later, the Oilers have climbed to third place but they are not winning consistently at home or on the road, the crowds are smaller and the club keeps missing chances to gain Kodiaks lose 81-68 Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks travelled to Bozerhan, Montana, Friday and dropped an 81-68 decision to the Montana State junior varsity squad. The Kodiaks led 43-35 at the half, but after a muscle in- jury to John Jasiukiewiez' back early in the second half the team seemed to go flat and were out-scored and out- played by their hosts in the final stanza. Greg Hess and Dave Preus were the stars for the Kodiaks as both led the team with rebounding and scoring. Hess hooped 24 points and Preus 16. Kodiaks managed to hit only 28% from the floor but pulled down 62 rebounds to 47 for Montana State. The two teams meet again tonight in Bozeman. ground on the division leaders. A crowd of was on hand Friday but the fans made enough noise to let the Oilers know their play in a 4-2 loss to New England Whalers was not appreciated. In one other WHA game Fri- day, Indianapolis Racers de- feated Minnesota Fighting Saints 5-2. The loss left the Oilers nine points behind second-place Toronto Toros and only one point in front of fourth-place Vancouver and three ahead of last-place Winnipeg. New England's Wayne Carleton scored two goals in the third period, the second into an empty Edmonton net with five seconds left to play. Terry Caffery and Tom Webster scored once each for the Whalers who increased their first-place margin in the Eastern Division to 11 points over Cleveland Crusaders. Tom Gilmore and Tim Sheeny scored for Edmonton. At Indianapolis, Jim Wiste scored twice to lead the Racers against Minnesota. Nick Harbarufc, Bill Horton and Kerry Bond added single goals for Indianapolis which still trails the Eastern Divi- sion with only 12 wins, but managed to attract a crowd of "They were flying like I've never seen them fly before. It was just a completely ineffec- tive effort by us, and we back- ed it up by not being very physical. If it wasn't for John Garrett, it would have been a complete rout." Garrett, returning as Saints' goalie after a two- game rest following 11 straight games, faced 49 shots.

(AP) New York Islanders violated a National Hockey League rule by not allowing reporters to enter their dressing room following Friday night's 4-1 loss to Vancouver Canucks. League rules specify the dressing room must be opened after a seven-minute cooling- off period. The only penalty, however, is a reprimand from NHL president Clarence Campbell. A team spokesman said the ban on reporters was ordered by general manager Bill Tdrrey after the Islanders dropped their third game in a row.
