He had just watched as the captain of his Lethbridge Bron- cos, Bryan Trottier, had put on a brilliant one-man show. He was visibly upset, however, after his club blew 3-0 and 4-2 leads. As a result, the Broncos had to settle for a 4-4 deadlock with the visiting Medicine Hats Tigers in a Western Canada Hockey League game witnessed by fans at graffiti night. Ingarfield was pacing the hallway outside the Bronco dress- ing room as early as the end of the first period and made it clear that his club would have to stop taking cheap penalties. "You can't get away with it against a team like the he said then. His words made him somewhat of a prophet as the Tigers scored twice within nine seconds in the second period to close to within one goal after the Broncos had taken a 3-0 lead early in the middle stanza. Ingarfield's summary of the game, that saw the Brandon Wheat Kings move one point back of the Broncos in the eastern division battle for second place because of the deadlock, was straight and to the point. "Trottier plays a game like that and we have to settle for a stated an upset coach. "A handful of guys play their hearts out and what do we get, needless penalties." Ingarfield made it very clear that the majority of penalties Tuesday were from not skating. "Hooking, tripping, holding just means a guy is not he said, "dumb penalties." Trottier was indeed brilliant as he consistently unnerved the Tigers with his rushes and overall play. "He was just added Ingarfield, "and so was Rpllie. Ingarfield was referring to netminder Rollie Boutin who was victimized by the rash of penalties the Broncos took. "Rollie was alright until we started taking stated the coach, "but he couFd only hold off the Tigers for so long. Trottier, in an effort to take over the lead in the WCHL scoring race, picked up three points on a goal and two helpers. He should have doubled that with any kind of luck. Meanwhile, at the west coast leader Mel Bridgman picked up two goals and one assist to maintain his two-point cushion over Trottier. In the game itself Darcy Regier, Ron Delorme and Alec Tidey added single markers to Trottier's goal for the Broncos while Greg Vaydik paced the Tigers with two goals and an assist while Don Murdoch, with his 67th of the year and Jim Bertram completed the Medicine Hat scoring. For Vaydik, it marked the second straight game he had picked up two goals and an assist against the Broncos. He turned the same trick Sunday in the 'Hat as the two clubs played to a 6-6 draw. Regier opened the scoring for the Broncos in the first period as he cooly picked up a loose puck at the Tiger blueline, walked in and beat Ken Holland with a backhand. Broncos ran their lead to 3-0 as Delorme and Tidey connected within two minutes and 55 seconds of one another. Delorme's goal, with the Broncos shorthanded, was one of the strangest, if not the strangest of the season. Delorme had picked up a pass from Trottier while killing a penalty. He crossed the Medicine Hat blueline and the only player other than goalie Holland who was back on the play was Barry Dean. Delorme fired a blistering slap shot that Dean got his stick on. Holland, coming out of the net to cut down Delorme's angle, watched helplessly as the puck went off Dean's stick, high into the air over his head and into the net. Tidey fired in a rebound off a shot by Trottier after Holland had made the initial save. Then the Broncos ran into trouble with penalties. Les Crozier went off for hooking at the mark of the se- cond period and was followed by Regier at giving the Tigers a two-man advantage for 21 seconds. They took full ad- vantage of it as Murdoch scored just as Croiier's penalty had expired at and then came back .off the face-off, nine seconds had gone by, to chalk up a cheapie. "They all said Tiger coach Jack Shupe after the game. He agreed with what Ingarfield had said Sunday in Medicine a tie on the road is as good as a win." Vaydik was credited with the second goal of the period, the cheapie, after his shot was stopped by Boutin but was in turn knocked in by a back checking Bronco. Trottier increased the Bronco margin to 4-2 as he scored on a penalty shot at the 300 minute mark. He received a standing ovation from the large crowd as he neatly tucked the puck past Holland on his free shot. Trottier had been dragged down from behind by Cliff Lane as he broke in alone while killing a penalty. Bertram got the Tigers close again with a short-handed ef- fort at The Tigers, despite the shortage of man-power, tied the Broncos up and Bertram rammed in a shot from close in to make it 4-3 Broncos. Vaydik closed out the scoring with a nifty move at the blueline that shook him loose and he beat Boutin with a wrist shot to the stick side and it was 4-4. Broncos continued to pressure the Tigers looking for the win but to no avail. LOOSE PUCKS Three power play goals, to the Tigers, and two shorthanded efforts highlighted the game Broncos took 10 of 14 minor penalties while each team fired 31 shots at the opposition's net Tuesday's three stars were Trottier, Vaydik and Delorme Graffiti night guessperts felt there were in the neighborhood of 400 posters in the Sportsplex Morris Lukowich had a frustrating evening for the Tigers as he hit a goal post, missed on a breakaway and then had a goal taken away from him... The puck, from the press box< was in, but then the last time the Tigers visited Delorme scored what looked like a goal tit for Barry Dean of the Tigers had to be restrained by his teammates after he was assessed a game misconduct. He was in the penalty box with a 10 minute mis- conduct but kept up his harrassment of referee Ron Foumier and he took an early shower which he didn't like....
