Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 26, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - U Austrian skater adds to point total Magnussen has a lot of ground to gain LYON, France (CP) - Trixi Schuba of Austria, continuing her strong showing in the compulsory school figures, retained a solid lead today in the women's world figure skating championship, leaving Karen Magnussen of Canada worse off than before as far as hopes for the title are concerned. The Vancouver girl, rated the best Canadian prospect for a medal in the current competition, still occupied fourth place in the 22-entry field but the points difference between her and the leader widened after completion of the last two of the six school figures. Miss Schuba, who had hoped for a 100-point margin going into the Saturday night free- skating finale, scored a total of 1,263 points compared with 1,124.2 for Miss Magnussen-a margin of 138.8. The Canadian girl, however, vowed she will "keep fighting" and her coach is counting on a strong showing by the blue-eyed blonde in the free-skating, her specialty. Despite the opinion of some experts that Miss Magnussen's victory chances have grown significantly slimmer, her coach, Linda Brauckmann, argued that the youthful star is "doing well." Miss Magnussen said: "It's not over until it's all finished."

The two clubs battled to a 1-1 tie. Assault on records continues Bruins set two marks By THE CANADIAN PRESS Setting National Hockey League records is becoming almost an every-day routine for Boston Bruins who set two marks Thursday night on the way to an 8-3 victory over Vancouver Canucks. With goals by Johnny Bucyk, Ed Westfall and Ted Green in 20 seconds, the Bruins set a record for the fastest three goals and Westfall became the eighth team member to get 20 goals in a season, also a league record. The Bruins now will rest for Sunday night when they play host to Toronto Maple Leafs in a game in which Boston could set a record for most goals in a season. They now are just five behind the mark of 303 goals they set in the 1968-69 season.

The 35-year-old left winger set up a second-period goals by centre Fred Stanfield and right winger Johnny McKenzie before starting the record three-goal outburst at 4:50 of the third period. Westfall beat Vancouver goalie Dune Wilson at 5:02 and Green's goal came at 5:10.

Bucyk's second goal of the night made him a 40-goal scorer for the first time in his 16 NHL seasons. His previous high was 31 goals last season. Among other records that stand within easy reach of the East Division leaders are most points and most wins in one season. With 18 games remaining, they are just 10 behind the' record 103 points Montreal Canadiens earned in 1968-69 and just three wins back of the 46 mark the Canadiens set the same season. The Bruins bombarded the Vancouver netminder with 60 shots. McKenzie with two goals and three assists and Stanfield with a goal and four assists were their other big leaders.
