Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February. 23, 1974 No need to panic yet says Rogatien Vachon By THE CANADIAN PRESS Rogatien Vachon has started 29 consecutive National Hockey League games for Los Angeles Kings and the last five have been defeats, but the goalie insists "there's no reason to panic." "Physically, I'm not tired at he said. "We've had some bad games but we need to put just one good game together and we'll be all right." The Kings try tonight at Montreal against Vachon's old team in the opener of a four- game road trip. Vachon may be rested against the Canadiens or at Toronto, where the Kings play the Maple Leafs Sunday. In Friday's only NHL game, New York Rangers edged California Golden Seals 4-3. Other games tonight see Vancouver Canucks at Toronto, Boston Bruins at Bombers seeking lead in east race By THE CANADIAN PRESS Flin Flon Bombers are mak- ing a determined bid for the Eastern Division lead in the Western Canada Hockey League. The Bombers cracked a 5-5 tie with two third-period goals Friday night and downed Swift Current Broncos 7-5. It was Flin Flon's second victory in three days at Swift Current where the Broncos had gone 17 games in a row without defeat. Victory propelled Flin Flon to within one point of division- leading Regina Pats, who managed a 3-3 tie against Edmonton Oil Kings. One goal went into an empty net after Edmonton netminder Larry Hendrick had departed because of a delayed Regina penalty. In other games, Calgary Centennials stretched their Western Division lead with a 4-3 victory over Victoria Cougars, Kamloops Chiefs upset New Westminster Bruins 5-1 and Saskatoon Blades rapped Brandon Wheat Kings 3-1. Marty Mathews, Al Hillier, Blair Davidson, Ray Maluta, Steve Williams, Rob Watt and Cam Connor scored for the Bombers, who led 2-0 after the first period and 4-3 after the. second. Dave Williams had three goals to lead Swift Current. Brian Trottier and Terry Rus- kowski scored one each. Dennis Sobchuk scored two Regina the one that caromed into the net off his stick as Edmonton captain Dave Inkpen tired to clear it. Bill Bell had the other. Ted Olson, Wayne Perkins and Harold Snepsts scored for Edmonton. Randy Knight and Don Ashby scored for Calgary in SAND GRAVEL lASPHALT 'TOLLESTRUP SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 328-8196 third period after a second- period brawl cost Calgary four top players. Jerry Holland had the Centennials' first two markers. Rookie Derek Haas scored twice and Al McLaren once for Victoria. The brawl produced 29 penalties. There were 40 in the game, as each club served six majors, four game misconducts and two 10- minute misconducts. Garth Dietrick, Neil Hawry- liw and John Mclvor scored for Saskatoon and Marshall Chalmers for Brandon. Gord Stewart paced the vic- tory with two goals. Chris McMasters, Jack Patterson and Rob Flockhart had the others, offsetting a tally by Murray Beck for the Bruins. Yet another ref injured SEATTLE (AP) Western Hockey League referee Malcolm Ashford was treated at a hospital emergency room and released Wednesday night after he was injured in a game between Seattle Totems and Denver Spurs. Ashford whistled Denver forward Connie Forey for tripping in the second period of the Totems' 6-3 home-ice victory Wednesday over the Spurs. As Forey entered the penalty box, he made a remark to Ashford, who then signalled a misconduct penalty. Witnesses said the call brought Forey steaming out of the box, swinging at Ashford. Linesmen and police pulled Forey off and Ashford was taken to the hospital. "His nose was all over-his Totem trainer Pat Dunn said. "I've seen a lot of broken noses, but none like that." Forey's fate now rests in the hands of league president Bill MacFarland- HARTLEPOOL BLANKED COLCHESTER.

Calgary Phont 202-7737 Department of The Secretary of State Pittsburgh Penguins, St. Louis Blues at Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers at Chicago Hawks and Atlanta Flames at Minnesota North Stars. Sunday, St. Louis is at Mon- treal, Philadelphia at New York Rangers, New York Islanders at Detroit, Boston at Buffalo and Pittsburgh at Chicago. Despite the losing string, Los Angeles has hung onto fifth place in the NHL West Division, slightly ahead of Minnesota and only three points behind fourthplace Atlanta. Vachon blames mental fa- tigue or "bad thinking for giv- ing up a couple of bad goals" in recent games. Meantime, he says his streak of 29 games isn't at all unusual. The NHL record for a goalie in 502 straight games, set by Glenn Hall of Detroit and Chi- cago 1955-1962. Vachon, 28, was a sensation in the nets for Montreal in his first full NHL season, 1967-68. He shared the Vezina Trophy with team-mate Gump Sorsley. But Montreal wanted Ken Dryden in the net, and Vachon felt shunned. "I asked them to give me 25 games and I'd stay there, but they said no. I said, 'If you don't need me, trade me.'" On Nov. 4, 1971, he was traded to the Kings for Dale Hoganson, Denis DeJordy, Noel Price and Doug Robinson, and Los Angeles threatened to gain a playoff berth until Vacbon was sidelined by a knee injury. The Kings won their last game in Montreal a month ago by a 2-1 score and another win tonight would be a big boost for die Rangers who moved to within three points of the Canadiens Friday. Montreal is in second place in the East with 75 points. A crowd of saw the Seals rally from a 3-0 first-pe- riod deficit with second-period goals by Reg Leach and Pete Laframboise. But rookie Jerry Butler scored his second goal of the game early in the third period to clinch the win for NewTYork. NEW YORK 4, CALIFORNIA 3 Firrt Period 1. NY Rangers. Vickers 25 (Park.

But playing-coach Bobby Hull's 40th goal of the season ended Winnipeg's four-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory. In the only .other game, Min- nesota Fighting Saints main- tained their solid hold on second place in the West Division with a hard-fought 6-4 win over Quebec Nordiques. In an effort to shake up his slumping club, Hull sat four players in the stands and four more on the bench, not in- cluding alternate goaltender Joe Daley. Going with only nine forwards, one of them defenceman Duke Asmundson. Hull engineered the most wholesale sitdown since the team's inception. He said later he wanted those forwards to "play themselves into Fran Huck and Ted Har- greaves gave Jets a 2-0 lead before Wayne Dillon cut the margin. Ab McDonald put them ahead 3-1, but .Guy Trottier and Steve King sparked a Tore comeback that. continued to press to the final whistle. Toro netminder Gilles Gratton was outstanding. "The best young goalie since Johnny Bower, as he was called by veteran Carl Brewer after the game, had some luck as Winnipeg forwards hit the goalposts, but shook off a minor foot-injury was forced to make some quick leg saves on Jean Guy Gratton, later named first star of the game. Mike Walton, with his second goal of the night, and Mike Antonovich stifled a determined Quebec comeback after Alain Caron and Andre Gaudette lifted the Nordiques to a 4-4 tie in the final period. Two local members of the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association will act as hosts in provincial playoff hockey action today. The Marlands were to have hit the ice at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre at p.m. against Strathmore while the Voyageurs entertain Canmore at at Adams Ice Centre tonight.

Hockey Canada closes offices TORONTO (CP) Hockey Canada, once the national voice in international hockey affairs, is closing its Toronto headquarters and plans to assume a low profile at the Administration Centre for Sports and Recreation in Ottawa. Al Scott, vice-president, an- noonced Friday his resignation, as well as those of Chris Lang, secretary- treasurer, and Gary Aldcorn, director of programs. "The decision was made be- fore Mr. Hay (Hockey Canada president Charles Hay) died last year.'1 said Scott, who will retain his post until the end of March. He said the Toronto office will close at the end of May and a secretary, to be named later, will take over administration in Ottawa. Hockey Canada was formed in 1968 by representatives of the federal government, the business community and professional and amateur hockey groups. Its prime aim was to promote the development of hockey in Canada, and part of the plan included formation of a national team to compete in world championship and Olympic tournaments. But when the organization attempted to win international approval of the use of professional players on the national team, it was rebuffed and Hay led Can- ada's withdrawal from inter- national competition in 1969. Before his death, Hay played a major role in the organization of the historic September, 1972, series between the Soviet Union and the Team Canada squad of National Hockey League stars. Since the 1972 series, Hockey Canada has faded into the background, devoting most of its efforts to developing coaching programs. "The story is simply that we have done most of what we set out to do in development published papers and said Scott, "and that has been the bulk of what we've been doing since the series with Russia. "Now. it's hard to see another Russian series coming, and looking at economics, the sports administration centre has' been sitting there offering many of the services we have." Anderson and Allan tallied singles in the David Tsujri win. Rory MacLennan fired in a pair of goals to lead the Flames to a 5-1 decision over the Penguins. Wyatt Blair, Robert Stewart and Mark Wolosyn chipped in with singles while Terry MacDonald replied in a losing cause. Michael Manson tallied twice and paced the Falcons to a slim 4-3 win over the Blues. Robert Rab and Todd Bene added single markers while Warren Keith, Myron Siemens and Kevin Higa notched a goal each for the Blues. KISS PEELING PAINT PROBLEMS GOODBYE with...
