Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 11, 1971 THI HIIA10 13 BIG WEKEND ON TAP Coach Al Ftrchuk (right) of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns' hockey club, makes certain four of his club members know the import- once of this weekend's series with the University of Club loaded with local talent Calgary. It's only exhibition action but a lot rides on the games as the locals are attempting to enter e collegiate league next season. With Ferehuk are, from left, Wayne Bowes, Bob Turner, Wally Tunow and Gary Smith. Pronghorns take to the ice The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns went through a rig orous work out Tuesday a s they prepare for two exhibition hockey games against the LTni versity of Calgary junior var- sity this weekend. The two game exhibition se- ries will help indicate how wel the Pronghorns would fare al the inter collegiate hockey level. "But that's not the only rea- commented Pronghorns coach Al Ferehuk. "The two games we're host- ing will also show what kind of fan support the Pronghorns could expect in the near fu- ture." When asked about their chances against the Calgary club, Percnuk was quite opti- mistic. "We've taken on six differ- ent teams in exhibition play so far this season and dropped only one decision. In City Rec- reation League action, our club has a 1-2 record and putting it quite bluntly, have been play- ing disgracefully. I think they'll be ready for the weekend though, since the players are keyed-up for the two game stint." Ironically, the Pronghoms suffered their only exhibition loss to the Calgary junior var- sity in their first game of the year by a 3-2 score. The Calgary club had been on skates at least a month before the Prongnoms had started their season. This season the Pronghoms are loaded with local talent. The Pronghorns' roster con- sists of IT players and 10 of them are local boys. From Lethbridge, Wayne Neilson, Rod Morrice, Bill An- derson, Jim Stewart, Jon Pet- runia, Wayne Laiaruk, Bob Turner, Wally Tunow, Wayne Bowes and Lloyd Yamogism' will dress against the Calgary club this weekend. Neilson and Morrice will pro- tect the Prong h o r n s' nets against the Calgary's shots while Andedson, Stewart and Petrunia will brace themselves on the blue-line. Neilson toiled with the Leth- bridge Sugar Kings in the 1967- 68 season while Anderson was also a well known Sugar King player. Anderson, a bruising defence- man, was named captain in three of his five yean with the Kings. The other local boys have earned spots en the forward lines. Three shutouts highlight play Shutouts was the can of the day as three teams blanked their opponents in City Broom- ball League action. The Knight Clubbers earned a 4-0 victory over the Traders and moved within one point of Coaldale in third place. John Wensveen, Jack Glea- Son, Alex Mlsak and Lawrence Velker notched a goal each in the easy victory. Fioriuo Rovers also moved up in the league standings drop- ping K. Masonary 2-0 with the telp of Fred Zimmer and Des Hamilton who tallied a g o a 1 each. The Rovers moved Into a hree way tie for sixth place. In -the only other shutout reg- istered Sunday, Canada Pack- ers kept tbeir two point first place lead blanking Elrich Kim- uras M. John Vaselenak, Gunner Crawford and Bill Christenson scored for the winners. In two other league encoun- ters, Welterlich dumped Leth- bridge Hotel 3-1 while Honda and Coaldale fought to a score- less tie. Guy liomradaa, Alvin Tietz and. Frank' Popson managed a goal apiece for Welterlich while George Stimalz scored the lone Lethbridge Hotel marker. STANDINGS Canada pack. Wellerllch Coaldale Knight Clubbers Letn.

Keith MacDonald of Tabcr, Robbie Powers of Vauxhall, Roger Pelletier of Pincher Creek, Gary Smith of Medi cine Hat, Dennis Kisio of Wet- askewin, Wayne Commodore of Hegina, and Jim Fergu- of Guelph, Out., will don the blue and gold sweaters this weekend. Smith, an all star In the Recreation League last season, won the scoring championship in the Southern Alberta Juven- ile Hockey League two sea- sons ago and Is expected to much of the scoring punch. Kisio, 3 welcome addition to the Pronghoms, played with the now defunct Calgary Cow- boys and was the key men for the Red Deer Community Col- lege hockey club last season. Two other additions to the Pronghorns who are expected to help the club tremendously are Ferguson and Commodore. Ferguson played junior hoc- key in Kitchener, and was also a playing coach with a team in Australia. Commodore, a tough and rug- ged blue liner and one of the bigger boys on the squad was a late cut two years in-a-row with the Regina Roughriiders football' club. Ooach Ferehuk is expecting Commodore and Anderson to carry most of the rough stuff against the Calgary club Fri- day and Saturday night. Game time is set for 8 p.m. on both nights at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. St. Louis lulls Canadians When the Blues of the night By IAN MicLAINE Canadian Fnts Staff Writer Scotty Bowman's SL. Louis fans showed Tuesday nighl they don't hold any hard feelings against the one-time Blues ooach by wining and dining him prior to shellacking his new club, Montreal Canadiens, 7-3 It was a grand homecoming for the 38-year-old Montrealer who ipenl1 five building the Blues into a solid National Hockey League expansion fran- chlw before jumping to the de- fending Stanley Cup champions this season after a dispute with the St. Louis owners. The setback almost ruled out any possibilities of the injury- plagued Canadiens overtaking either New York Rangers or Boston Bruins in the race for first place in the East Division and the Prince of Wales Trophy In other games, Detroit Bet Wings continued their revival with a 5-0 w'.n over Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks held Minnesota North Stars to a 2-2 tie. Tonight, the Rangers and Bruins get a chance to pad their margins over the third-place Canadiens. New York meets the Blade Hawks at Chicago and Boston visits Pittsburgh Pen- Elsewhere, Toronto Maple Uafs entertain the hapless Los Angeles Kings, who have given up 24 goals in their last three gamee, and Minnesota moves into Oakland against California Golden Seals. The Canadiens wefe in the (hick of the NHL East race until rookie goaltender Ken Dryden injured his back against the Leafs in Montreal last Dec. 22. With Dryden out of the lineup, the Canadiens have won three and lost six and fallen six points Behind the second-place Bruins Summaries DETROIT 5 PHILADELPHIA I Flrtt Period 1.

Montreal's injury woes were added to Sunday when high- scoring Frank M a h o v 1 i c h missed the Chicago game with a temperature of 103. He continued to St. Louis with the team but entered hospital there. He was discharged Tues- day but admitted still feeling "lousy" and was a questionable starter for Thursday night's game in Montreal against Pitts- burgh. Captain Henri Richard's un- assisted score 52 seconds into the game gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead, but the Blues took command thereafter with goals by Floyd Thomson, Bob Plager and rookie Mike Murphy prod- ding SL. Louis into the lead. Murphy's second score, at of the second period with Richard serving a minor pen- alty, was the winner. Bowman, making his first trip back to St. Louis since resigning as coach and general manager last April, replaced starting goaltender Dennis DeJordy with Phil Myre at of the first period, soph after the Blues opened their 3-1 lead. Bill Goldsworthy's 18th goal of the season with lees than seven minutes remaining lilted the visiting Minnesota's into a tie at Vancouver. Only superb goaltending by veteran Cesare Maniago had kept the North Stars in a threat- ening position as the Canucks ripped 31 shots at the Minnesota nets, 14 .in the second period when they gained a 2-1 margin.
