The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGC HERALD WcdnMday, January 9, Nap costly to Islanders, Arbour not all that happy By GERRY SUTTON Canadian Press Staff Writer Coach Al Arbour said his New York Islanders played like "sleep-walkers." He wasn't far off. An extended nap in the first period cost them three goals- all within a 118-second span- enabling Los Angeles Kings to win 3-1 in one of two National Hockey League games Tues- day night. "You gotta get a full 60 min- said Arbour, whose club remained seventh in the East Division with 27 points. "The other clubs won't let you turn it on and off whenever you want. "Don't blame goalie Gerry Desjardins; it was the guys in front of him." Desjardins stopped 29 shots, 10 in the first period and 11 in the third, while goalie Rogie Vachon of the Kings made 23 saves. In the other game at Van- couver, Lou Angotti's llth goal of the season at of the second period led St. Louis Blues to a 3-1 triumph over the Canucks. The victory tightened the First scoreless battle in brief history of WHA Power personified Larry Csonka of the Miami Dolphins is probably the hardest running fullback in the National Football League. The Minnesota Vikings must find a way to stop the big power back if they hope to win Super Bowl VIII Sunday in "Houston: Gardens to grow? TORONTO (CP) Harold Ballard, president of Maple Leaf Gardens, said Tuesday a decision would be made within two weeks whether to tear down the home of Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League or expand it by seats. "We have the plans for a new building near the waterfront, 35 acres and another nine nearby. We're talking about cleaning up the waterfront a little with some other buildings as well as the new Gardens.'1 "We will know within the next two weeks what kind of a deal the harbor people will give Ballard said. Harbor Commission of- ficials said there was no deal with Ballard for lakefront property. "There is nothing before the said commissioner Donald Wright. Ernest Griffiths, general manager, said he had heard several rumors, but if a deal is being considered "I haven't been Ballard said if he decided to stay in the present building, he would lift the roof, add a balcony around the top and in- crease the seating capacity by to approximately GAMES EARLIER ST. LOUIS (AP) In an attempt to conserve energy, St. Louis Cardinals have announced that all but six of their night home baseball games will start earlier than in the past. Bing Devine, Car- dinal general manager, said that all week-night games will start at instead of the usual 8 o'clock and all but six Saturday -night home games will begin at 6 o'clock instead of 7. THE CANADIAN PRESS Houston Aeros can be frustrating on their home ice. And goalie Gerry Cheevers can be a nuisance no matter where he's playing. The Aeros increased their record to 13 wins and two ties in 17 games at home with a 6-2 triumph over Edmonton Oilers, with the help of three power-play goals, in a World Hockey Association game Tuesday night. Cheevers picked up his fourth shutout of the in the he blocked 39 shots, 13 in the second period and 14 in the third, in holding Chicago Cougars to a 0-0 draw. It was the first scoreless tie in the WHA's brief history. In other games, Toronto Toros nipped New England Whalers 3-2 and Los Angeles Sharks defeated Winnipeg Jets 4-1. The second-place Toros now have 45 points, two less than the leading Whalers in the East Division. Cleveland is third with 43 points, two more than Quebec Nordiques and six ahead of the Cougars. New Jersey Knights are last with 36 points. The Aeros increased their lead in the West Division to four points over the Oilers. Minnesota Fighting Saints are third with 41 points, followed by Winnipeg with 40, Van- couver Blazers 32 and Los Angeles 30. Aeros 6 Oilers 2 Murray Hall's 16th and 17th goals of the season led the Aeros to their 21st victory in 38 games. Both goals came on power plays, at and of the first period, to give the Aeros a 4-1 lead. Andre Hinse, his 12th on a power play, and Mark Howe, his 18th, scored earlier goals for the Aeros before fans. Veteran Gordie Howe set up his son's goal and assisted on both of Hall's to give him 9 points this season, including 37 assists. Frank Hughes completed the scoring with his 26th'goal at of a wild third period. Twelve players received penalties for their part in a brawl at of the final period in which 63 minutes in penalties were handed out. After the fight, five Ed- monton players each was assessed a major and another, goalie Chris Worthy, got a minor. Six Houston players got a total of three minors, four majors and a 10-minute misconduct. There were 101 minutes in penalties in the game, with 56 minutes going to Houston. Crusaders 0 Cougars 0 The Crusaders had their best chance to score late in the third period when the puck shot by Gerry Finder slipped over goalie Cam Newton's shoulder, dropped to the ice and trickled towards the goal. However, Chicago defenceman Darryl Maggs knocked the puck away before it crossed the line. Attendance was in Chi- cago. Toros 3 Whalers 2 The Toros snapped a 1-1 tie in the third period when Steve King scored his eighth goal at the 22-second mark and Brit Selby followed with an insur- ance marker 27 seconds later. Toronto fired 37 shots at goalie Bruce Landon, who made 18 saves in the first period as the Whalers took a 2- 0 lead. Gilles Gratton, in goal for Toronto, made 28 saves. "I had to play because I was the least injured of the in- said Landon. "I didn't know until just before game time that I would be in the net." New England's No. 1 netminder, Al Smith, didn't dress because of a leg injury. Gratton said the Whalers only played a fair game.

Waller buys new franchise SAN DIEGO (AP) Ron Waller, outgoing coach of San Diego Chargers, says he has bought a franchise in a new league that will play American-style football in Europe, starting in 1975. Waller said he also will act as consultant to the Inter- continental Football League, recruiting coaches and players for teams in 12 cities. He declined to name the team he owns. Waller said the Inter- continental League would start play in June, 1975, with players from the American professional and college- graduate ranks, plus any European kickers and others who qualify. He said .Bob Kap will be commissioner of the league, and eight franchises already have owners, all Europeans. "The advent of European kickers has caused widespread interest in American football on Euro- pean sports Wallet said. "With the American cul- ture that has come to Europe in the past few years, I think it will be very enchanting. "Naturally we'll have to educate some people there. Eventually we're thinking of a world super bowl." He said the league would play in London, Paris, West Berlin, Munich, Istanbul, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Athens, Copenhagen, Vienna and Lisbon. "We won't attempt to prog- ress too Waller said. "The first year we will play just four games, all in June." He said the league doesn't intend to compete for big- name players. Blues' third-place position in the West Division, giving them 42 points, three ahead of Atlanta Flames and five behind Chicago Black Hawks. Los Angeles is sixth with 32 points, one back of Minnesota North Stars. Kings 3 Islanders 1 "We got three goals from three shifts and you can't ask for more than said coach Bob Pulford of the Kings. "We played well the whole game and those two minutes were not luck." Butch Goring started the as- sault at of the opening period when he skated down the middle on a breakaway to score his ninth goal with the Kings a man short. Juha Widing increased the lead to 2- 0 when his shot went in off a New York forward at Frank St. Marseille com- pleted the Kings' scoring when he took a pass from defenceman Sheldon Kannegiesser and fired a 15- foot shot past Desjardins. The Islanders got one back when Lome Henning beat Vachon on a power play at of the second period. "It was a mixup between myself and Barry Long on the goal they got against Vachon said. "We looked at each other and didn't do anything about getting the puck away from them." Blues 3 Canucks 1 The Blues and Canucks were tied 1-1 after the first period, with Glen Sather scor- ing his 10th goal for St. Louis and Richard Lemieux getting his third for Vancouver. Angotti, who had 15 goals for Chicago Black Hawks last season, beat goalie Gary Smith from 15 feet after tak- ing a pass from Gary Sabourin. Pierre Plante 'scored the final goal into an empty net with 38 seconds remaining and Smith on the bench for an ex- tra attacker. The Canucks outshot the Blues 37-25, but were frustrated on several oc- casions by goalie John David- son, who made 16 saves in the first period. ST. LOUIS 3, VANCOUVER 1 Flrit Period 1.

MONTREAL (CP) Sam Berger, owner of the Cana- dian Football League Montreal Alouettes, Tuesday took another step in his efforts to improve the club's off-field image with the sometime reluctant home town fans Berger said he has retained the services of Gerry Patterson and Sports Ad- ministration Inc., as marketing consultants for his club in 1974. Patterson, president of Sports Administration Inc., will work directly with Berger and Richard Blais, director of marketing, to develop an over-all marketing and promotion plan for 1974. Patterson currently handles the corporate affairs of such well-known athletic figures as Jean Beliveau, Rusty Staub, Gordie Howe and Guy Lafleur. He was also hired as a consultant by the organizing committee for the 1976 Summer Olympics to explore its marketing possibilities. Berger still must appoint a general manager to replace J. I.
