Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBKIDGE HERALD Friday, January 7, 1971 Arbours, Roberto and Thompson arrested today Donnybrook erupts as Blues nip Flyers By UN MncLilIlVE Canadian Tress Staff Writer A donnybrook that spread from ice level in the Philadel- phia Spectrum to the press box will sb-etoh all the way to the upper echelons of the National Hockey League before the inci- dent is over. The flare-up Thursday night at the end of the second period saw many of the St. Louis Blues, trailing the Flyers 2-0, take on Philadelphia fans in a stick-swinging session after tlieir infuriated coacli, Al Ar- bour, charged on to the ice to dispute a penalty call by referee John Ashley and get doused with a container of beer. When the air had cleared, several persons were injured, including one policeman, Ar- bour and Si. Louis defenceman John Arbour. When the third pe- riod resumed, after a 45-minute delay, the unfortunate interrup- tion seemed to spur the visitors to a 3-2 victory. Early today, coach Arbour, defenceman Arbour, Phil Rob- ANDY CAPP PON'T BELIEVE AY" foHVESpAN1 WOF5D SHE OAR.C5 WAS THE TAP? QUIET, MAN-I'M TRWT', WATCH TELEVISION ABOUT HALF AS 'ARC AS THAT; Nothing more from Brundage CHICAGO (Reuter) Avery Brundage, president of the In- ternational Olympic Committee, said Thursday there was "noth- ing new" in his insistence that strict amateur rules be followed by ski competitors in next month's Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. He made his comment in re- sponse to adverse reactions by top ski federation officials in Europe to his proposal that ski events in Sapporo should be held as separate world champi- onships if a large number of competitors were found to be in- eligible for the Olympics be- cause of commercial advertis- ing. The 84-year-old IOC president confirmed Wednesday that he had made his suggestion for a separate world sW champion- ship because of reports that many skiers had not complied LETHBRIDGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DRAW WINNER OF THE 1972 SKI-DOO Barbara Simmons 1010 29th St. A S.

AAHA wants quick action It is the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association's request that all teams with Canadian Amateur Hockey Association player cards not yet processed, do so immediately. The cards should be complet- ed and signed by the players and forwarded by the coach to Mr. C. J. Miller of Calgary at the Registrar's office before January 10, 1972. Teams not complying with this request will not be eligible for the provincial playoffs. Further information can be obtained by contacting either Mr. Gordon Crser or Peter Lewko of Lethbridge.

IETHBRIDGE PHONE 328-9271 Stan, Fischler's Inside Hockey "pARY in a recent game between the Hangers and Flyers at the Philadelphia Spectrum a Flyer journey-hatchet- man named Bill Lesuk momentarily turned dentist and re- moved a few of Hod Gilbert's teeth with his stick. Gilbert had neither requested nor required the orthodontia but such attention has become more and more a part of his life not to mention the life of his linematcs, Jean Ratelle and Vic Hadfield. Their inflationary points total, highest in the league, has earned them the scrutiny.................... "The other clubs arc checking us said Had- field, who is celebrating his first year as Rangers captain. "But if we keep skating the way we have I don't see why we shouldn't keep up the pace." At the present production rate, with one-third of the sea- son gone, the New York "Hot Line" easily could surpass the 366 points amassed by Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge and Wayne Cashman of the Bruins last year. Lately, the Boston trio has been overshadowed by Ratelle and Company. "Offhand." said Ratelle, the linchpin of the New York line, "it seems ridiculous to compare ourselves with a line that has a guy, Esposito, who scored 76 goals last year. But that Bruins line has only one man producing at the moment. We have three." More than anything, or anyone, their efforts explain why the Rangers have maintained a tenacious1 battle for first place in the East Division. "This is the fastest team New York's ever said Flyers' coach Fred Shero, who had been a member of the Rangers' organization for several years. Curiosly, the Hangers have remained near the top des- pite the failure of its second line, centered by Walt Tkaczuk, to generate any steam. A 26-goaI man last year, Tkaczuk has only scored lightly this term; which has magnified the importance of the "Hot Line." "We like tire said the bachelor-playboy Gilbert. "1 wouldn't like going into a game not feeling anything. Personal satisfaction isn't enough. All I have to do is go two or three ga.rr.es without a gcal anu I get bitchy. I punish myself I stay home at nights." Gilbert was one of the most dissatisfied Rangers with his contract in training camp last September. He took his ease to arbitration and, according to reliable sources, was awaided less than the figure originally offered by g.m.-coach Emile Francis. He also has, from time to time, taken harness racing lessons from his close friend Lucien Fontaine. According to Fontaine, Rod could be a trotting winner if he studied harder with Lucien. For now, though, hockey is on Gilbert's mind. "We just play it season by season said Rod. "we're playing out our contracts this year. I don't know what will happen after this season." Just why this season is any different for the "Hot which has played together for more years than any other unit in the league, can be explained by a sudden sophistication in their style. No longer are they wildly and indiscriminantly taking the long shot. "f haven't really used my slapshot yet this said iilbert. "We're working ourselves in closer." Ratelle added: "We've gotten more chances than ever before and we're making our own chances." The perplexing question is whether this New York team s for real or another one of those early-season Rangers iireats that will disintegrate in February; when the Bruins iverwhelmed them last year. Some observers believe New York is a legitimate Cup threat. "This said Flyers goalie Doug Favcll, "the Rangers have deplii. I'd say they're the best club we've been up against and that includes the Bruins. For some reason Bos- ton forwards aren't getting their shots off the way they did last year." Another Ranger factor is motivation. This marks the 30th year since New York last finished on top. No other established rlub can make that dubious statement, and the Madison Square Garden front office is tired of its second fiddle role. Francis recently added some beef when he acquired de- :enseman Gary Doak from Vancouver but the Rangers still lave such smallish but productive jackrabbits as Bobby Hous- seau and Bruce MacGregor not to mention the non-belligerent Ratelle. "Don't let Ratelle fool said ex-Ranger Don Luce, now with Buffalo. "If I was building a team and wanted oneplayer in this league it would be Jean." If Ratelle who has a prominent Roman nose, suffers in any way it is in the verbal dueling with his linemates. The other day Jean was surrounded by reporters when Hadfield came along and butted in: "How many times have I told you, Jean, move your nose before you talk. People can't un- derstand you." Fish and Game conduct course erto and Lloyd Thompson were arrested and charges were laid. The Arbours and Roberto were charged with assault and bat- tery on a police officer, disor- derly conduct and conspiracy. Thompson was charged with ag- gravated assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly con- duct and conspiracy. Police said preliminary hear ing was probable next week. None of the fans was ar- rested. The action overshadowed Bos- ton Bruins rise to the top of the East Division standings for the first time this year with a 5-2 win over the Sabres at Buffalo. Detroit Red Wings meet Cali- fornia Golden Seals tonight on the coast in the only scheduled game. THE VEEPS BLAST While the Blues, led by de- fenceman Bob Plager, battled fans and police, Lynn Patrick and Joe Scott, vice-presidents of St. Louis and Philadelphia re- spectively, had a verbal tirade going above in the press box. The two clubs have been bit- ter league rivals since the 1967 expansion arid, with few excep- tions, the rugged Blues have dominated their meetings. An enraged Scott shouted: "When you try to beat up po- lice you're in the wrong town: We've been talcing it from you guys for four years." Clarence Campbell, NHL president, was non-committal when he heard' of the happen-' ings in Montreal. He said he wanted to get the [ull facts on what happened be- fore commenting on what action the league could or would take. It took 10 stitches to close a jash on coach Arbour's head, another 15 to the wound on de- fenceman Arbour's head, and several to close a gashed lap :uffered by Michael Oastagna, a Philadelphia policeman. The atmosphere in the St. Louis dressing room between periods became more tense when police sergeant Lou d'Angele yelled: "You're all under arrest." A cordon of police surrounded the St. Louis players' bench when the third period started and the Blues responded with goals by Garry Unger, Roberto and Gary Sabourin, within a span of less tlian six minutes, to turn the game around. Despile the protection, Sidney Salomon Jr., president and chairman of the board of the St. Louis hockey club, declared after the game he will file suit agamst the Philadelphia police department for "the worst case of police brutality I have ever jen." The air was cooler in Buffalo where Sabres coach Punch Im- ach accepted defeat by the Bos- on machine with grace. "They had everything going or them. This was the game hey had to he observed ulside the Buffalo dressing room after watching Phil Espos- to and Bobby Orr engineer the mm Esposito's 32nd goal of the car and Orr's 19th gave the Boston club a 2-0 cushion at (he nd of the first period and they Dadded it with three more in the liddle session after Sabres' Gil 'crreault had made it 2-1 in the econd minute of play. BLUES ALIGHT FROM PATROL WAGON St. Luuis Blues' coach Al Arbour, left, Phil Roberto, right, and Floyd Thompson arrive at police headquarters in paddy wagon following hockey game with Philadelphia Flyers Thursday evening. The game delayed 30 minutes after a fighl between the Blues and Philadelphia speclalors broke out. Fight card successful Four members of the Leth- bridge Boxing Club will travel to Calgary this weekend to lake part in an amateur fight card. Carmen Rinfce, Donny Plet- tel, Danny Johnson and Perry Odney will all fight on the Sat- urday card. Meanwhile, the Lelhbridge club, the Sea Cadet Club and members of the Brocket Boxing Club put on an eight-bout card for the inmates of the Lelh- bridge Correctional Institute which was a rousing success. Some 100 people took in the fights. Referees for the night's action were Tony Bogusky and Jim Wright while inmates han- dled the rest of the duties. In a pair of 70-pound bouts Lloyd Bascom and Perry Od- ney emerged with victories. Bascom was overpowering in his fight with C1 e v e Miyashiro. Both are members of the Leth- bridge club. Odney, also from the LBC. jabbed hu way. past Gordie Furgason of UK host club. Andy Stump of Brocket best- ed a scrappy Jackie Johnson in a 75-pound battle while Bonnie Plettel, with his long reach and experience, defeated Keith Mi- yEshiro in the 100-pound class. In the closest fight of the eve- ning Bobby Kroeker of the Sea Cadets outpointed Ken Bascom, a first-year fighter who shows a lot of promise. A seasoned Danny Johnson was a little too much for Conrad Sincennes to handle in a 125-pound fight be- tween LBC teammates. It only took Billy North Pe- gan of Brocket a little more than one round to beat Ted Fel- ler of the Sea Cadets. North Pegan had too much experi- ence and power for the game Feller. In the heavyweights it was Henry Wolf Tail winning on pouits against LeRay Whit- beck of the LBC. Whitbeck, however, is improving every time out and club officials see a good future for the young hit- ter. Summaries RUSSIANS BELT U.S.A.
