Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 54, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Third period rally sinks Seats GAG line continues torrid pace By THE CANADIAN PRESS New York's GAG Line is on the verge of establishing two National Hockey League records and could set a third if it continues its torrid scoring pace. The line, so named earlier season after it began scoring a goal a game, was true lo form Wednesday night, scoring two goals in the Rangers' victory over Philadelphia Flyers. In other games, Buflalo Sabres, with an assist from their opponents, defeated Black Hawks 2-1, Boston Bruins rallied to beat California Golden Seals B-0, Toronto Maple Leafs shut out Pittsburgh Penguins 2-0 and St. Louis Blues blajiked Los Angeles Kinga by the same score. Jean Ratellc, the leading scorer on the GAG Line, got goal of the season, scoring in the second period againsl Philadelphia. Vic Hadfield also scored, his 40lh. Rod Gilbert the third member of the line did not score Wednesday nighi tat he is only one goal away from his 40ln and when he reaches that mark the line wil Howard misses first day of camp Allen signs six figure contract By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "The Chicago club judges Ri- chie Allen on what he does for us on the While Sox manager Chuck Tanner said after the Chisox dealt pitcher Tommy John and i n f i e 1 d e r Steve Huntz to Los Angeles Dodgers for the Z9year-old slug- The Chicago club must be ex- pecting a lot. Allen agreed Wednesday to a 1972 contract for more than making him the high- est-paid player in White Sox his- tory. Allen, who spent seven tem- pestuous seasons with Philadel- phia Phillies, will be playing (or his fourth club in four sea- sons. He hit 23 home runs and drove in 90 runs with the Dodg- ers in 1971. While Allen was presumably content, a couple of other prom- inent American League sluggers were not-at least, not yet. KILLEBUEW UNSIGNED Harmon Killebrew is one of eight Minnesota Twins still un- signed, while Frank Howard is not expected in the Texas Rangers' training camp for 'quite a says general manager Joe Burke. Killebrew, 35, earned last year and is expected to agree to a raise of about ?10.000. Howard, however, is another story. After a big 44 homers, 126 runs batted in 1970, Howard received a con- tract. Now he's coming off his least productive season in five signed veteran knuckleballer Phil Niekro; reliever Sparky liyle agreed to terms with Bos- ion Red Sox, and veteran Steve Hargan, who slipped to a 1-13 record last year, came to terms with Cleveland Indians. Also, Oakland Athletics signed outfielder Joe Rudi and pitcher Diego Segui; New York Yan- kees came to terms with Eon Blomberg snd Frank Baker; h u r 1 e r Bruce Dal Canton reached agreement with Kansas City Royals; Montreal Expos signed pitcher Mike Torrez, and New York Mets came to terms with outfielder Ken Singleton and infielders Tim Foli, Ken Boswell and Ted Martinez. WHO'S PUT) VOU CAN UP ME STUFF'S IN i; TO 1'EAKS ert is nine points and Hadfield 1 away from 100 points while latelle, who replaced Boston's 'hil Esposilio as the NHL 's scoring leader, has 108 points. The Ratclle-Hadfield-Gilbert hie also has 288 points for the >eason, 48 short of the record it last season by the Esposito Hodge-Wayne Cashman ine. R a t e H e's goal Wednesday night was the eighth straight ;ame in which he scored, leav- es him two short of the NHL ecord of 10 showed by former Ranger Andy Bathgale and Bobby Hull of Chicago Black lawks. He also assisted on two goals o increase his points-total to .08. one more than Esposito. The Black Hawks, who have ost only three games at home ill season, dropped their second straight at Chicago mainly be- cause of a miscue by a player. An untimely kick of the puck >y Chicago forward Christian Jordeleau deposited the puck into the Black Hawks' net to Jve Buffalo its win. Craig Ramsay was credited with the ;oal. Earlier, after Jim Pappin had scored the opening goal for Chi- cago, the Sabres tied it when a clearing pass bounced off Gerry Meehan's strikes past Chicago ;oalie Tony Esposito. OTHER DRYDEN STARS The Sabres got brilliant net- minding from Dave Dryden, who was making his first start n 2-3 games. He credited "frus- tration" for his sharp perform- ance in the nets. "I just got so tired of practis- ing and not playing for two months that this game was just he said. The Bruins, who were in-, volved in a five-man trade Wednesday with California which sent all-star defenceman Carol Vadnais to Bruins, were trailing the Seals 6-1 before the game was half over. But the Bruins exploded for two goals late in the second pe- riod and five more in the third to sink the Seals, who got two- goal performances from Gary Croteau and Dick Redmond in the early stages of the game. Rich Smith and Reg Leach, two of the players Boston gave up to get Vadnais, each assisted on a goal for California. Fred Stanfield scored three goals for the Bruins to put them back in the game but it was Esposito's two goals less than three minutes apart that won the game for the Bruins, Gast Division leaders.
