The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 4, 1974 Black Hawks came close to top, but left fluttering in second By LLOYD JOHNSTON Canadian Press Staff Writer It seems everytime Chicago Black Hawks preen for a dra- matic move in the West Divi- sion of the National Hockey League, some upstart comes along to knock them off bal- ance. Atlanta Flames were the culprits Thursday night when they tipped Chicago 3-2, just when the Hawks were flutter- ing over the prospect of cap- turing first place. It wouldn't have mattered anyway, as results from other precincts revealed. New York Rangers joined in the conspiracy to keep Chicago in second place by submitting 4-2 to the division- leading Philadelphia Flyers. A Chicago victory and a Philadelphia defeat would have permitted the Hawks to perch on the top rung of the ladder. Instead they remained runners-up, three points behind the Flyers. In other games, Buffalo Sa- bres defeated Pittsburgh Pen- guins 6-1 and New York Islanders outlasted Vancouver Canucks 3-2. Victory by the Flames lifted them into third place, one point ahead of St. Louis Blues. Their rookie centre Tom Ly- siak scored one goal and as- sisted on two others. The rug- ged centreman, who led West-' ern Canada's premier junior league last season with 58 goals and 96 assists, was the Flames No. 1 amateur draft choice last year. "The first time I played against the Black Hawks I was a little Lysiak ad- mitted. "But now I try to be equal to them." Goaltender Phil Myre was another bulwark for Atlanta as he closed ranks with his defencemen to protect the Flames' one-goal lead. "Myre played an out- standing game for said Atlanta coach Bernie Geoffrion. "He may have saved the But if's in the net .West All-Stars' Bobby Hull (right) and Gordie goalie Gerry Cheevers of Cleveland and Quebec's Howe (left) look over to referee after he ruled j. c.

East All-Star Lacroix proves once and for all that he's an all-star ST. PAUL, Minn. (CP) Andre Lacroix, Jersey Knights' compact centreman, was ignored by last year's all- star selectors although he won the World Hockey Association scoring championship. This year the 28-year-old has continued his scoring feats with 15 goals in the first 36 games, and Thursday night finally got his chance to play in an all-star game. Lacroix teamed with Cleve- land's Gerry Pinder and Gary Jan-ell to spark the East Divi- sion to an 8-4 triumph over the West in the second WHA all- star game. "I wanted to prove that I de- served to be in the all-star Lacroix said. "This game meant a lot to me be- cause of the great players who were out there. It was really a great feeling." For the West Division how- ever, it was no great thrill.

T2P GET INVOLVED EARN WHILE YOU LEARN Lacroix scored two goals and added an assist as the East rammed in five goals in the first period and coasted from there. The game marked the reu- nion of hockey's two greatest goal scorers, Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe, who played together in National Hockey League all-star games. Both were No. 9, and both came up with disappointing perfor- mances. Hull, the West playing coach, said the East "simply outplayed us." "They got four quick goals and we were out of it." "I wasn't at my said Howe, 45, who played in 22 NHL all-star games. "I never got my second wind." "But it is an honor to be a rookie again, and it was great to play with Bobby again. I thought those days were gone." He called across the dress- ing room to Hull: "Hey Bob- Fernie ski reports good Skiing conditions at Pernie Snow Valley can be classified as being good according to the latest weather reports. The temperature has settled down to around 12 degrees below zero with a clear blue sky. No new snow is predicted for today to add to the 34-inch base bottom 126-inch base top. The Fernie Snow Valley is open each day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Meanwhile at Westcastle, three inches of new snow has lifted the base bottom to 18 inches and the base top to 40 inches. The weather conditions are fair. Taber Elks victorious The Taber Bantam Elks came up with an impressive snowing in a pair of exhibition games against the highly touted Camrose Bantams recently. The Taber Elks earned a 4-4 stalemate and a 3-1 victory over Camrose, who had tied and beaten a touring Swedish bantam team earlier in the hockey season. by, maybe we'll get our se- cond wind by midnight." The only time Hull and Howe were an offensive threat was on their opening shift, when Hull sent centreman Fran Huck of his Winnipeg Jets in on a break- away. But the little foreward lost the puck as he swept around goalie Gerry Cheevers in the first minute of play. The outcome gave the East a 2-0 record in the annual game. They won 6-2 last year at Quebec City. Larry Pleau of New England Whalers also scored two goals, with Rejean Houle, Ralph Backstrom, Pinder and Rosaire Paiement getting singles. Mike Walton of Minnesota Fighting Saints gave the hometown fans something to cheer about by scoring three goals and being named the game's most valuable player. Lacroix was the runner-up. Larry Lund of Houston Aeros got the West's other goal in the second period, the only one in which the losers showed much spark and cohesion. They cut the margin to 6-4 but fell back into their dis- organized ways in the third period and the East players were content to protect their cushion. Lacroix and Pleau added to the margin in the final 20 minutes. "If Huck had scored that early goal, it' might have made a Hull said, "but I doubt it." Minutes later, Houle com- bined with Serge Bernier on a two-on-one break to open the scoring for the East, and Backstrom teamed with Wayne Carleton of Toronto Toros to make it 2-0 with the East playing shorthanded.

'Myre agreed, saying: "After surviving those two minutes, I figured I could get through about anything." Chicago outshot Atlanta 26-24. Philadelphia 4 NY Rangers 2 Dave Schultz scored three goals to spark the Flyers past 1 Rangers. The victory ended a 13-game winless streak for the Flyers against New York. They had not beaten Rangers since March, 1971. Schultz has a reputation for being a better fighter than a goal scorer. He led the NHL in penalties last season and is leading in the department again. "The Rangers used to laugh at Schultz and cheer when he got a shot on said Phila- delphia coach Fred Shero. "I didn't see anybody laughing tonight." Buffalo 6 Pittsburgh 1 Left-winger Rick Martin continued to celebrate the 'return of his regular centre Gil Perreault by scoring three goals to pace the Sabres against the Penguins. He has scored eight goals in five games since Perreault, who broke an ankle early in the season, returned to the lineup. "It sures helps to have him Martin said. "The way he carries the puck creates opportunities." The loss stretched Pitts- burgh's winless streak to eight games and moved Buffalo to within three points of fourth place in the East. NY Islanders 3 Vancouver 2 Rookie defenceman Dennis Potvin scored a goal and as- sisted on two others in the Islanders' victory that was jeopardized in the third period when Dave Hudson was penalized for using an illegal stick. The Islanders rode out the penalty and hung on to win on Ralph Stewart's goal, but Islanders' coach Al Arbour was angry about Hudson's dereliction. "There's no excuse for said Arbour. "That could have cost us the game." He said he would tack on a club fine in addition to the automatic fine invoked by the league. ATLANTA 3. CHICAGO 2 Firat period 1. Atlanta, Lysiak 12 (McCreary) 2.

Longhorns belted 9-4 by Calgary Canucks CALGARY (Special) Two-goal performances by J. P. Kaumeyer, Dean Magee and Mike Mclvor propelled Calgary Canucks to a 9-4 league victory Thursday night over the visiting Lethbridge Longhorns. Butch Owchar, Ian Rowe and Terry McFaul rounded but the scoring for the Canucks, who held period leads of 2-1 and 5-3. Terry Roberts, with two, Bruce Small and Brad Cox replied for the Longhorns who were outshot 49-32. Calgary's Don Eastcott received a gross misconduct when he attacked Reid John- son of Lethbridge in the penal- ty box. Johnson went to the penalty box after a fight with East- cott. It was the second fighting major of the night for Eastcott and he was ejected from the game. But instead of heading toward his bench, Eastcott went to the penalty box and belted Johnson. Calgary took seven of 13 minor penalties. Each team had three majors and the Canucks had two game mis- conducts. Meanwhile in Drumheller Jim Bowman turned aside all 26 shots fired at him to help Edmonton Mets blank Drumheller Falcons 5-0 Thursday night in a league game.
