Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-05,Lethbridge, Alberta Bruins strengthen hold on first place By THE CANADIAN PRESS While Montreal Canadiens attempted to soft-pedal an internal dispute, Boston Bruins paddcn their lead in the National Hockey League’s East Division Friday night with a 4*2 victory over New Yc^ii Rangers. The victory gave Bruins an eight’point bulge on the second-place Canadiens and left Rangers in a tie for third place with Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs, however, have a game in hand. There were no other games Friday. Tonight Vancouver Canucks visit Montreal, the Leafs play the Kings in Los Angeles, the Bruins are at New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres are guests of Pittsburgh    Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers go to Minnesota North Stars and California Golden Seals are at St. Louis Blues. Sunday, the Rangers are hosts to Atlanta Flames, the North Stars travel to Detroit for an afternoon encounter Rumors don’t t bother Whalers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Rumors ot a move to a new location often seems to have an unsettling affect on the players of a hiockey team. Not so with New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association. The Whalers, leaders of the East Division by four points, were unruffled Friday night as they defeated the West Division’s third-place Win- ^ nipeg Jets 4-3. In the only other game, Edmonton Oilers were upset 4-3 on the West Coast by Los Angeles Sharks. The loss left the Oilers two points behind first-place Houston Aeros, as they remained in a tie with the Jets. In tonight’s action, Vancouver Blazers play the Nordiques in Quebec City, the Aeros visit New Jersey Knights, the Whalers go to Cleveland to play the Crusaders and Minnesota Fighting Saints visit Chicago Cougars. On Sunday, Edmonton plays in Minnesota, Winnipeg is at Houston, New Jersey visits Toronto, Chicago plays in ^ebec and Vancouver is at Qeveland. The Whalers got second-period goals from Hugh Harris, John French and Tom Webster and then staved off a Winnipeg rally in the final 20 minutes. New England goattender Bill Berglund, playing his first WHA game, stopped 15 shots, as his team-mates threw up a strong defensive wall. Berglund was called up from Jacksonville Barons of the American Hockey League because of injuries to regular netminders A1 Smith and Bruce Langdon'i Elarlier in the day, Howard Baldwin, president of the Whalers, said a report that the team plans to move to Hartford, Conn., “is, at the best, premature." "There isn’t any denying that Hartford has been in contact with the^Whalers,” Baldwin said, “but our interest in Hartford at this point has been a discussion of exhibition games, plus a partial allotment of regular season games because of the date problems that have existed for the Whalers at Boston Garden. “At this time it is our intention to play the bulk of our r^ular games in Boston as we are confident that our dates in the future will be more desirable,” Los Angeles 4 EdmontDn 3 The last-place Sharks yielded the Oilers a 2-0 lead on goals by Rusty Patenaude and Ron Climie, then rallied for victory that was sparked by the two-goal performiince of Marc Tardif. Chmie was a two«goal man for the losers. Broncos alone in first place ___ /THE CANADIAN PRESS Swift Current Broncos over-f'an Brandon Wheat Kings Friday night in a Western Hockey League game and set a record for the number of goals the team has scored in one game. The 13-6 trouncing put the Broncos in sole possession of first place in the league’s Eastern Division, moving two points ahead of Flin Flon Bombers. The Broncos, who led 7'2 after the first period, had been tied with the Bombers at 42 points going into the game The Bombers did not play Friday-but are scheduled to play the Clubs at Winnipeg Sunday while Swift Current moves to Regina. In other games Friday night, Calgary Centennials moved ahead in first place in the Western Division with a 64 win over Edmonton Oil Kings in Calgary and Saskatoon Blades fought back to emerge with a 3-3 tie against the Bruins at New Westminster. Don Larway was the star for Swift Current, scoring four goals. Brian Back, Ben Richardson and E)oug Tetarenko each added two. Dave Williams, David George and Bryan Trottler added single goals, Tetarenko scored the record-setting goal in the third period.

At Calgary, veteran centre Mike Rogers scored three goals to give him 32 for the season with the Centennials.

The Blades tied the game on a power-play goal by Bemie Federko at 14.55 of the third period. Bob Bourne and John Mclvor scored single goals for Saskatoon. with the Red Wings, Vancouver is at Buffalo and California plays at Chicago. “After a good save,” said Boston goaltender Gilles Gilbert. “you can see your team start to get stronger.” Gilbert provided the Bruins with several good saves and it paid off in a comeback after Boston trailed New York M. “It was our best game in three weeks,” said Boston coach Bep Guidolin, after a pair of goals by Bobby Orr and a tie-breaker by Derek Sanderson moved them to victory. “Gilbert turned It around,” said Guidolin. “I figured if we could get a goal, we would come back. But Gilbert kept us in the game.” Orr got the goal Boston needed and 65 seconds later rookie Dave Forbes tied the score. Sanderson broke the tie early in the third period then Orr wrapped It up with the 19th of the season and 200th of his career. "Those two quick goals changed the whole game around,’^ said Rangers’ coach Larry Popein, “That was all the hfe they needed.” That and some big toves by Gilbert. Boston centre Phil Esposito failed to get a goal but remained well in front in the scoring race by picking up an assist. He has 74 points, 14 ahead of runner-up Orr. Meanwhile, at the Forum in Montreal, Canadiens coach Scotty Bowman took a low-key^approach to the feud that has developed between him and veteran defenceman Jacques Laperriere. Laperriere, 32, and a regular member of the Canadiens since 1963, said there was “no way” he could stay with the team next season if relations between the two men did not improve. Bowman is reported to have told Laperriere after Canadiens’ 8-4 loss in St Louis Wednesday that ‘‘you’re finished, hang up your skates—don’t ruin your life and don’t try to ruin mine.” However, Bovmian said Friday, “r think Laperriere’s record speaks for itself as does mine. It’s pretty hard to keep them all happy at the same time.” BOSTON 4, N.Y.
