The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD January 2.1974 NHL AND WHA HOCKEY SPECIAL Ftr DttlHl CotHKt ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 3M-3201 Sports STAN FISCHLER The problems between coach Larry Popein and his New York Rangers have revolved around Popem's desperate attempt to assert his leadership through severe forms of dis- cipline, even more severe than his ultra-conservative predecessor, Emile Francis While players on other teams are allowed to wear beards Philadelphia's Bill Flett scored 43 goals last year looking like Abe Lincoln Francis and Popein have ruled against "excess facial hair As a result they have infuriated mod players such as Steve Vickers, Rod Gilbert and Gene Carr Vickers, the 1973 rookie-of-the-year, grew a beard last Summer but had to shave it off when the new season began He made no bones about his displeasure with Popein's rule I had said Vickers, "I would've kept the beard But it was a new coach and I didn't want to rock the boat Popein nearly caused a revolt when he tossed Gene Carr out of the Rangers' dressing room between periods of an exhibition game last September followed Francis' old rule and came down to see his teammates, said one of Carr's friends "When Popein threw him out it so infuriated the rest of the team that captain Vic Hadfield asked to talk to Popein about it After the 1973-74 season began Popein further antagonized his team by suspending Rod Gilbert for a game when the veteran right wing showed up a half-hour late for a team meeting It really wasn't Gilbert's fault He lived according to Francis old rule which had meetings at noon Popein had suddenly switched them all to 11 a m So, actually, Gilbert was a half-hour early by Francis' standards Still, he was severely punished Popein's uptight behavior was considered the prime reason for the Rangers' terrible start in October and early November The players just won't skate for him the way they would for Francis." said a source close to the Rangers "I doubt that Popein will last through January Philadelphia Flyers' coach Fred Shero remains one of the most refreshing characters in his usually severe profession Shero originally was in the Rangers' system and had hoped to succeed Francis as the New York coach but Emile kept Fred- die waiting too long and Shero went to the Flyers It may have been Francis' most serious blunder, among many In Philadelphia, the Winnipeg-born Shero has kept Spectrum brass happy with his handling of the rambunctious Flyers not to mention the often-difficult Philadelphia press said Philadelphia Bulletin writer Jack Chevalier, always has the final word Once, when Kate Smith came to The Spectrum to sing "God Bless America" before a Flyers-Toronto game, Shero was ask- ed whether the event thrilled him Instead, he remarked about the time he was in the minors and another impressive female came to the game "Who s that big. busty blonde, about 6-3, who used to be on TV" asked Shero "Yeah, Dagmar Well, she dropped the puck for us one night in Buffalo and kissed our captain. But that's all she kissed The persistent Chevalier asked if Kate Smith had inspired him with 'God Bless America Shero replied "I like the song' Gary Howatt, the tough little guy who played junior hockey for the Flm Flon (Manitoba) Bombers, jabbed and hooked his way on to the New York Islanders this year and has become one of the fan favorites at Nassau Coliseum. Few realize that Howatt, the tenth pick in the 1972 amateur draft, is an epileptic. Fortunately, epilepsy can be reasonably controlled when proper treatment is given and Howatt allows that it has not prevented him from pursuing his profession "I haven't had an attack in more than three Gary said It doesn't affect my play, so I don't think about it 'OW WOULD "fOU TONIGHT'S PA0fs IN UR DIAR-y TO REALLV STAND OUT, OARLIN1 Dillon up to his old tricks, third game-winner in a row By THE CANADIAN PRESS Rankling the established hockey powers may be a re- ward in itself for the World Hockey Association, but the league gained far more than satisfaction last June when it nabbed a handful of under-age juniors. Toronto Toros owner John Bassett says he gained "the best rookie in Toronto" in drafting and signing Wayne Dillon while the WHA was temporarily unencumbered by an agreement with the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association. The 18-year-old centre scored his third consecutive game-winning goal Tuesday night, the opening marker in the Toros' 3-0 shutout of Cleveland Crusaders. Bassett is grateful for the brief rules lapse that allowed him to steal the top goal- scorer for Toronto Marlboros, who last season "may have been the best junior club of all time in this before Dillon was eligible for the National Hockey League draft. "Take a look and see how many Marlboros were drafted by NHL Bassett said. "This boy certainly would have been drafted in the first round if he had been eligible." The Marlboros, and the NHL, also lost Mark and Mar- ty Howe to the WHA, and that move spawned an even bigger benefit for the WHA because it allowed Houston Aeros to The Howes' play deserves much of the credit for Hous- ton's first-place standing in the neck-and-neck West Division, where the race grew even tighter Tuesday night as Winnipeg Jets moved into a second-place tie with Ed- McCreary gets help VANCOUVER (CP) Coach Bill McCreary of Van- couver Canucks got an assis- tant Monday his boss. The National Hockey League Canucks, amid rumors that McCreary would be fired, issued an official statement that "there will not be a change in the coaching of the Vancouver Canucks." "Bill McCreary will con- tinue as coach But the statement, issued by general manager Hal Laycoe, continued: "However, Hal Laycoe will become very active in the playing area of the club. He will make all road trips and will be m continual associa- tion with Bill McCreary, just as he was during training camp and at the start of the season when things seemed to go so well."

In Tuesday's other game, Chicago Cougars moved to within a point of Quebec Nor- diques and the final playoff spot in the East by edging Vancouver Blazers 5-4 with two late goals. The league is idle tonight in preparation for the all-star game Thursday at St. Paul, Minn The Toros are making the East race tight too. Tuesday's victory was Toronto's sixth in seven games and it moved them to within two points of first-place New England Wha- lers. The Toros are getting much of their heat from centre Wayne Carleton, who scored two goals to back up Dillon's opener. They were his 24th and 25th of the year and stretched his league-leading points total to 61. It was the sixth game in a row Carleton has scored at least one goal. "Things have been working out pretty well for Wayne Car- leton this Carleton said Toronto goalie Les Binkley kicked out 27 shots and ex- ulted: "It took me a long time to get my first shutout on my own." He had shared one earlier with Gilles Gratton. Playing despite a dose of flu, the Owen Sound, Ont, native protected the shutout with two brilliant saves in the third period, first on a rising slapshot by Larry Hillman and then on a point-blank Bill Young slapshot that he caught with his pad But his fervor may have been costly "I felt the knee go when I kicked out a shot late in the he said, adding that he wouldn't know until later to- day if the injury will sideline him.

TYPEWRITERS Smith pays dividend Canuck goalie sharp THE CANADIAN PRESS When Vancouver Canucks entered the 1973-74 National Hockey League season, team members felt the club had im- proved in at least one goal. By and large, that feeling has been proven correct, as Gary Smith, obtained in a trade with Chicago Black Hawks, has provided the Canucks with some excellent shot-stopping in most of the games he's played. The six-foot-four Vancouver goalie was at his best again Tuesday night as he withstood a barrage from Boston Bruins to allow the Canucks to escape before a hometown crowd of with a 2-2 tie. It was the only NHL game scheduled Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Ca- nucks, their offensive output and defensive work in front of Smith hasn't proved adequate, with the result that the Canucks are even worse off this season than in past years, when they managed to avoid the NHL cellar. The tie gave the Canucks just 23 points so far this season, leaving them two points behind New York Islanders in the Eastern Divi- sion basement. Smith was beaten by Phil Esposito with only 46 seconds gone in the game as the Bruins swarmed around the Van- couver net for much of the first period. Despite firing 16 more shots, they couldn't beat the Vancouver goalie. Smith had a little less work in the remaining two periods, winding up with 34 saves, many from point-blank range. Only Terry O'Reilly, in the second period managed to dent Smith's armor. Bobby Schmautz and Gerry O'Flaherty got the Vancouver goals, both in the second period. Smith also got a little help from the goalposts in the wide-open game, as four VANCOUVER 2, BOSTON 2 FirM Pot-lad 1 Boston, Esposito 36 (Orr, Bucyk) 046 Penalty Dailey 4 40 Second Period 2 Vancouver, Schmautz 20 (Boudnas) 2 41 3 Boston O'Reilly 5 (Marcotte, Oddieif- son) 3 47 4 Vancouver, O'Flaherty 6 (Boudrlas, Wllkins) 1333 Penalties None Third Period No scoring Penal- ty Gilbert B served by Forbes 2 03 Shots on goal by Botlon 17 8 Vancouver 11 18 MONDAY BUFFALO 0, DETROIT t Flrd period 1 Buffalo.

The Australian cham- pionships are the first in the grand slam series that includes the French, Wimbledon and U.S. open tournaments. Connors, earning from the purse, was too quick for the 23-year-old Dent, the No. beating him in a match that lasted two hours, five minutes. Dent received The men's final was an anti- climax following the thrilling 97-minute women's match watched by a crowd of which over- flowed on to the Kooyong grass centre court. Miss Goolagong, the No. 2 seed, took the first set from the 19-year-old Miss Evert, the tourney's top seed, by winning a tie-breaker Chris was cheered by the partisan crowd when she questioned a late line call against Miss Goolagong in the tie-breaker. The point was replayed and the American won it again. But Miss Evert lobbed long at 6-5 and lost he opening set. Miss Evert surged to a 4-1 lead in the econd set, but Miss Goolagong cut the deficit to M before Chris won it with a backhand. Evonne dominated the third set, which lasted only 18 min- utes, outgunning Miss Evert with a blazing net game in which she allowed Chris only nine points. Miss Goolagong also won the women's doubles final, combining with Peggy Michel of Pacific PalisadeSTCalif. for a 7-5, 6-3 triumph over Australians Kerry Melville and Kerry Harris. In the all-Australian men's doubles final, Ross Case and Geoff Masters beat Bob Giltl- man and Syd Ball M, M Boston shots rang off the posts. The tie gave the Bruins a sixpoint lead on Montreal Canadiens atop the East Division. The Canadiens get a chance to narrow the margin tonight when they travel to St. Louis in one of five NHL games. In other games, Detroit Red Wings visit Toronto, New York Islanders are at Chicago, Minnesota North Stars host Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings travel up the coast to meet California Golden Seals. The Red Wings, hoping to catch a playoff spot in the east, invade Toronto after a costly loss Monday night to Buffalo Sabres. Compounding Detroit coach Alex Delvecchio's problems is an injury to defenceman Brent Hughes. The Leafs, just three points ahead of fifth-place Buffalo, will likely start Doug Favell in goal. Coach Red Kelly says Favell's back problem has cleared up and named the veteran as the likely starter. Leading Toronto scorer Paul Handerson has a rash on his hands that's causing con- siderable discomfort, but hasn't lost his scoring touch. He had three goals and an assist in Toronto's last six games.
