12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, January 13, 1975 Perreault suffers knee injury, Jacques pots four for Toros By Tlic CANADIAN PRESS No sooner was Buffalo's French Connection line reunited Sunday night than another injury threatened to break up the explosive trio. Rick Martin, playing in his first National Hockey League game after missing seven, games with a thumb injury, opened the scoring at Buffalo to start the Sabres to a 5-1 vic- tory over Vancouver Canucks. But centre Gil Perreault, who helped set up Martin's goal and two others by left winger Rene Robert, suffered a knee injury when he ran into a hip check by Vancouver (lefenccman Mike Robitaille in the third period. Perreault was taken to hospital and there was no im- mediate word on the seriousness of the injury to his left same knee on which he had surgery last year.

(AP) Johnny Miller, rapidly estab- lishing the rich pro golf tour as his own private hunting preserve, took the first step Sunday towards matching last season's sweep of the first three tournaments with the easiest triumph ever recorded. He won the first prize in the Phoenix Open Sun- day by a record 14 largest winning margin in history. The previous high was 12 by Ar- nold Palmer in the 1962 Phoenix Open. And Miller won with an in- credible score of 260, the lowest 72-hole score recorded in 20 years, since Mike Souchak set the record at 257 in the 1955 Texas Open. So what do you do for an en- core, Johnny Miller? "I don't the young golfer replied. "I can't top this. That's for sure. I'll probably never do this again. "I'll just go on to Tucson and try to play a good first round, then try to play a good second round and try to play a good third round and win the toumajnent and go on to Peb- ble Beach and try to win there. "Everybody says you can't win the first three again. But if I can win at Tucson, I've got a good chance. Pebble Beach is like home to me. It's the kind of course I grew up on." Miller, was 24 under par, posting rounds of 67, 61, 68 and H4 and accumulating a tourna- ment total of two eagles and 25 birdies. Last season Miller won eight United States tour- naments, a record in prize money and Player-of- the-Year honors. He got so far in front of the strongest field in this tourna- ment's Jack Nicklaus was missing from the list of the top 15 money- winners from last he had to manufacture some goals for himself. "When I got it going good in the last round, I set a goal for he said. "I decided I'd try and shoot in the250s." He had a good shot at it until he hit into the water on the fi- nal hole, a par five, and had to settle for a par. Jerry Heard, a long-time close friend of Miller's, gain- ed the runner-up spot with an eagle on the final hole. He had a .final-round 65 and a 274 total. St. Louis Blues beat Detroit Red Wings 2-1.

Both went out in the first period. Centre Stan Mikita's 450th career goal early in the se- cond period: at Chicago gave the Hawks a 2-0 lead over the Rangers, who twice pulled within in one goal but couldn't get closer. At Landover, Md., theCana- diens enjoyed their fourth romp of the season over the expansion Capitals, led by rookie Yvon Lambert's two goals. The win extended Montreal's unbeaten string to 20 straight games, just three short of the league record set by Boston in 1941. When Toronto Toros an- nounced a coaching change last Friday, one man involved in the shuffle was overlooked but he didn't take long to make himself conspicious Sunday night. Jeff Jacques was a left winger toiling with Mohawk Valley Comets in the North American Hockey League un- til the Toros called him up Friday to replace Bobby Leduc, named to take over the coaching task from Billy Harris who quit at least tem- porarily due to family illness. Jacques joined the Toros just an hour before their World Hockey Association game Sunday at Houston but came up with four goals in a 7- 4 Toronto victory over the defending league champion Aeros. The remainder of Sunday's WIIA schedule was cut by storms in Western Canada and the United States. The Van- couver at Minnesota and In- dianapolis at Winnipeg games were both postponed because of the snowstorms and Quebec Nordiques were an hour late arriving at Edmonton where they rallied for a 3-1 victory over the The only other game played saw Cleveland Crusaders beat Phoenix Roadrunners 4-2.
