Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 1972 TH! IHHBRIDGE HERALD Carlton upset tvith Cards By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bing Devinc, general man- ager of St. Louis has iraded away a 20-game winner and indicates he is not above OUT FOR THi SEASON Jim Dorey, New York Rangers defenseman, is comfort- ed by his wife Dole as he recuperates fro m a shoulder injury in New York's Lenox Hospital Friday.

(AP Wirephoto) Hot line doubles pace By THE CANADIAN PRESS A look back to the National Hockey League scoring records of a year ago provides a re- minder of why the current bat- tle for the league-scoring lead holds so much interest. After 61 games last season, Boston Bruins had four players leading the race. Centre Phil Esposito, who wound up the sea- Eon with his second champion- ship, was leading team-mate Bobby Orr by 15 points with wingers Johnny Bucyk and Ken Hodge close behind. This season, however, centre Jean Ratelle and New York Rangers linemates Rod Gilbert and Vic Hadfield have moved up to challenge the Bruins. Going into the weekend ac- tion, Ratelle had a one-point edge over Esposito. The Hangers centre has 46 goals and 02 assists and the Bruin 54 and 53. A year ago, Esposito had 52 goals and 65 assists while Orr followed with 29 and 74. Orr is not far behind this season with 28 goals and 69 assists for third spot. ARMY, NAVY and AIR FORCE VETERANS CLUB IETHBRIDGE UNIT NO. 34 Important General Meeting ELECTION OF OFFICERS MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28th p.m. In The Clubrooms All MEMBERS URGED TO ATTEND The New York line, however, was well out of the race last season. Now nicknamed the GAG line for their goal-a-game production, they had scored less than half the total 288 points they have amassed so far this season. At this point last year, Ratelle led the trio with 24 goals and 36 assists, making him IWh among the leading scorers. WERE WELL BACK Gilbert, who has 39 goals and 52 assists after 61 games this year, had 24 and 25 after 63 games last season while Had- field, BOW with 40 and 49 after 61 games, was well back with 14 and 16 a year ago. Hadfield however, missed part of last season with injuries and had played only 48 games up to March 2, 1971. Despite the GAG line's dou- bled production, however, the Rangers are no further ahead in the standings. A year ago, the Bruins had 95 points for a sev- en-point edge over the Rangers who had played 63. Up to this weekend, the Bruins had 99 points after 62 games and the Rangers 90 after 61.
