Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD February 27, 1974 Leafs, Flames to try again in bid for third place rung By THE CANADIAN PRESS Atlanta Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs were foiled again Tuesday night in their bid to make headway in their battles for third place in the West and East divisions of the National Hockey League. While Vancouver Canucks and New York Islanders played listlessly to a 1-1 tie that had fans screaming for action, Montreal Canadiens edged the Flames 6-5 'n Atlanta and Detroit Red Wings rolled to a 7-3 decision over the Leafs at Detroit. Unheralded Claude Larose provided the Canadiens' fire- power with a three-goal per- Nordiques sitting pretty, let Whalers, Toros fight By THE CANADIAN PRESS New England Whalers and Toronto Toros play tonight in a showdown for first place in the East Division of the World Hockey Association. And not a moment too soon, either, because breathing down their necks are Quebec Nordiques, who crushed Winnipeg Jets 7-1 Tuesday. The Nordiques who are idle tonight, are firmly settled in third place, only a single point behind the Whalers and Toros, who are deadlocked in first with 68 points each. The Whalers, who have not been out of first place since Oct. 20, will be making their first appearance at home since the announcement last week that the team will move to Hartford, Conn., at the end of the season. The Toros have gained ground with a hot streak which included a 2-0 decision Sunday over New England. The Whalers, coming off a tedious road trip on which they split six, tonight will be without defenceman Paul Hurley, sidelined with a knee injury; Tom Webster, out with a head concussion; and, perhaps, penalty-killer John Danby. Danby suffered a whiplash injury in the game at Toronto Sunday. In other WHA action Tuesday, Chicago Cougars defeated Los Angeles Sharks 4-2 and Houston Aeros edged Vancouver Blazers 3-2. Winnipeg 1 at Quebec 7 The Nordiques struck four times in rapid succession late in the first period with goals by Michel Parizeau at Rejean Houle at Renald Leclerc at and Serge Bernier at Bernier's goal was his 29th of the season. Quebec goalie Richard Bro- deur's shutout bid was snapped by veteran Ab McDonald with 35 seconds remaining in the second period. The loss left Winnipeg in third place in the West, four points behind Minnesota Fighting Saints. Vancouver 2 at Houston 3 Third-period goals by Gordon Labossiere and Murray Hall carried Houston to victory over Vancouver. Hall's goal was the winner for the West Division leaders at It was Houston's second shorthanded goal of the game.

Pete Mahovlich scored twice and assisted on, one of Larose's counters. John Stewart was a two-goal man for Atlanta, which remained in a tie for third place with St. Louis Blues. "This was my second hat trick in the said Larose. "I got my other one about six years ago against Detroit. This one was more satisfying. One reason was because the other game was wide open and we won 6-1. This game, of course, was a one-goal game, so it meant my goals supplied the winning margin." "Another reason this game was so satisfying is that I have been struggling recently. I broke my leg last year and wasn't able to play until Dec. 15. I've played in only 22 games and I've been a regular in only the last three." Toronto 3 at Detroit 7 Leafs' coach Red Kelly promised lineup changes for Thursday night's game against New York Islanders at Uniondale, N.Y. "The goaltending wasn't too good tonight and my defence wasn't that sharp, either. They're making key mistakes that are costing us heavily, but they are kids, after all." Mickey Redmond and Marcel Dionne each scored twice for the Wings who won their third straight game. Redmond raised his goal output to 40, putting him seven games ahead of his pace last season when he scored a team-record 52. The loss left Leafs in fourth place eight points behind New York Rangers and seven ahead of Buffalo Sabres. Vancouver 1 at N.Y. Islanders 1 The Canucks and the Island- ers played a close-checking, cautious playoff-style game. The tie kept the Islanders one point ahead of the Canucks in the struggle to stay out of last place in the NHL's East Divi- sion. Denis Potvin of New York and Dennis Kearns of Van- couver exchanged first-period goals and the goaltending Smiths, Billy of the Islanders and Gary of the Canucks, kept the shooters at bay thereafter.

Bassett has his say in Toronto Tuesday Lalonde standing firm on WFA TORONTO (CP) "The World Football League won't go away, even if there's no team in the Canadian Football League will still have to compete for says John F. Bassett. The part-owner of the WFL's Toronto Northmen was replying to Marc Lalonde, federal minister of health and welfare, who expanded Tuesday on the anti-WFL stand he took in a speech last week in Regina. Lalonde told a news confer- ence he hopes to convince the owners of the Northmen to fold. "If they don't, then we'll have to take up our responsibilities as a the minister said. Lalonde said he didn't believe the Northmen would start play as scheduled, July 11. In the Regina speech last Thursday, Lalonde said the federal government is opposed to the United States- based WFL operating in Canada because it poses a threat to the survival of the CFL. "This is a free Bassett said in an interview after the news conference. "A guy can start a business. We haven't broken any laws and we're not going to. "If he (Lalonde) is trying to convince us, you'd think he would phone us. He's not going to convince anyone by raising the hackles of Torontonians. "I'm not saying we're going to fight I haven't spoken to Mr. Lalonde. He does all his talking to service dubs and press conferences. If we meet I'll try to convince him he's dead wrong." "We're in Bassett continued, adding that he has no plans to move the club to the United States or to sell it. the Northmen announced Tuesday the signing of assistant coaches Jay Fry and Jim Rountree, both former CFL coaches. Rountree was assistant to Leo Cahill with Toronto Argonauts until Cahill was fired in 1972. Cahill has since joined the Northmen as general manager. Fry resigned last year from the staff of the Grey Cup champion Ottawa Rough Riders. Rountree and Fry join John McVay of the University of Dayton, Ohio, who was ap- pointed head coach last week. Lalonde said he hopes to meet soon with Bassett and said he believes he can persuade him to pull out. If not, the minister said, the federal government has between five and 10 possible alternative actions that can be I ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Saskatchewan rink all alone in first ALBERTA JUNIOR W L Red Deer.. 36 15 Calgary 31 22 Edmonton 26 26 The Pass 27 24 Drumheller 18 33 Lethbndge 16 35 NATIONAL T F A 3 285 204 75 0 264 226 62 2 253 237 54 1 211 188 55 3 212 274 39 3 209 305 35 VICTORIA (CP) Sas- katchewan is in undisputed possession of first place but skip Emily Farnham of Saskatoon is envious of the position of the Prince Edward Island rink in the Canadian women's .curling championship. The strong Saskatchewan rink, attempting to keep the national title in the province for a sixth straight year, ran its streak to five straight Tuesday with a 10-4 triumph over the P.E.I. rink skipped by Marie Toole of Charlottetown and an 8-6 squeaker over stubborn Nova Scotia. After defeating P.E.I., Miss Farnham said she "sorta likes Marie's position for the rest of the week." The P.E.I, position became stronger after Mrs. Toole, supported by Cathy Dillon, Jennie Boomhower and Pauline Johnston, boosted her won-lost record to 4-1 with an easy 11-3 romp over British Columbia. In other fifth-round games, Alberta's Marilyn Johnston needed only six ends to defeat Manitoba 9-1 and Quebec edged New Brunswick 9-8. Ontario's 7-6 extra-end victory over the Alberta rink from Edmonton was the surprise of the fourth round. Mrs. Johnston had been rated Saskatchewan's chief threat. In other fourth-round games, B.C. squeezed past Newfoundland 8-5, Nova Scotia drubbed New Brunswick 14-2 and Manitoba nipped Quebec In addition to the P.E I.- Quebec game, other sixth- round pairings today are: New Brunswick and Newfoundland, Nova Scotia against B.C., Ontario and Manitoba and Alberta and Saskatchewan.
