Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD - Monday, January 14, 1974 Canadiens belt Bruins 7-3 in first home loss \etminding haunts Red Wings By GLENN COLE ** Canadian Press Staff Writer The retirement of goalie Roy Edwards earlier this National Hocliey League season left Detroit Red Wings in a rather uncomfortable position. When Edwards, who led the NHL with six shutouts in 1972-73 and posted a 2.63 goals-against average in 52 games, quit Detroit was left with three rookies and veteran Denis DeJordy. Much of the goaltending in recent days has been handled by rookies Doug Grant and Bill McKenzie who have not always been impressive. McKenzie of St. Thomas, Ont., posted his first NHL shutout Saturday as the Wings whitewashed Los Angeles Kings 6-0. But Grant, 26, of Corner Brook, Nfld., allowed Chicago Black Hawks to convert two rebounds into their first two goals Sunday en route to a 4-1 win over the Wings.

(Reuter) - More than half the athletes who will be competing in the 10th British Commonwealth Games were in residence Sunday night at the Games village of Ham. The University of Canterbury campus, which contains the Ham village, burst into life as more than 1,000 people moved in. Until the opening ceremony, the village will be the focal point of the Games. The biggest parties to check into the village were the New Zealand and Canadian teams. Two Scottish road cyclists had a brief confrontation with security men at the Games village when they took a short cut over a barbed-wire fence into the village compound. The reason for their breach of rules appeared to be a ban on cycles in the games village. The Scots wanted to be able to take their machines as close as possible to their quarters, so they rode to the nearest point on the perimeter fence and climbed over with the aid of a ladder. Unfortunately for the Scotsmen, a security patrol spotted them and they were immediately apprehended and questioned. A Games official said the men were housed in a remote area of the village, so their unofficial route home was understandable. He also described the rule forbidding cycles in the complex as ridiculous. Officials of some of the teams have also criticized the ban on cycling. The Welsh manager-coach said he would fight the ruling, and England's team manager told reporters the rule prevented cyclists from "proper" exercise by forcing them to walk long distances. The Games organizing committee has also received complaints from riflemen who are unable to take their rifles into the village quarters. The committee earlier announced that all firearms used during the games would have to be locked away while not being used, for security reasons. But several riflemen said they need their guns with them in the evening so that they could work on them and practise sighting. A report by a national Sunday newspaper that a group of terrorists had written to it threatening to kill a key Games official and disrupt the Games has been dismissed by the Games security officer, Lt.-Col. E. Braggins. Col. Braggins described the report as "bunkum" and said the type of action outlined by the newspaper would not be possible without easy detection. \orth all-stars win MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -David Jaynes of Kansas fired a 17-yard touchdown strike to Southern California's Lynn Swann with. 26 seconds remaining Saturday as the North All-Stars rallied for a 16-13 victory over the South in the Silver Anniversary Senior Bowl football game. Jaynes completed four passes in the 80-yard drive to victory and the North was also helped by a 19-yard pass interference call against the South as the Yankees trimmed the Rebel lead to a 14-9-2 in the series that launches professional careers for the players. The North took an early 9-0 lead on a 31-yard field goal by Nebraska's Rich Sanger and a one-yard plunge by Bo Matthews of Colorado. However, the South, turning to some gambling, rallied on a 35-yard field goal by Greg Gantt of Alabama and a two-yard scoring run by Arizona State's Woody Green to take a 13-9 lead early in the fourth quarter. Green's touchdown was set up by Wilbur Jackson's 53-yard run to the North two where the Alabama star was nailed from behind by speedster Jeris White of Hawaii.

Lawson finds the range in ninth straight game By GERRY SUTTON Canadian Press Staff Writer Danny Lawson of Vancouver Blazers has developed a habit that likely annoys his World Hockey Association opponents. He scores goals-quite frequently. The 26-year-old right winger picked hp his fifth league record-he established four last year-when he scored in the third period, giving him at least a goal or more in nine consecutive games for a total of 14. Lawson, who scored 28 goals in 219 National Hockey League games, helped the Blazers defeat Edmonton Oilers 6-2. The former star of Hamilton s Red Wings of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series now has 34 goals after 43 games, about the same pace as last year when he set the league's single-season goal-scoring record of 61. "I'm not too concerned about how many goals I score, or momentoes and things like that," said Lawson. "What's it all worth if the team doesn't make the playoffs?" Alain Caron of Quebec Nor-diques set the original consecutive-game, goal-scoring record of eight last season. He scored 10 goals in his streak. In other games, New England Whalers beat Los Angeles Sharks 9-6; Toronto Toros whipped New Jersey Knights 7-2; Winnipeg Jets defeated Chicago Cougars 3-t; and Cleveland Crusaders topped Minnesota Fighting Saints 4-2.

The results left New England in first place in the East Division with 50 points, two more than Toronto. Cleveland has 47 points, Quebec 43, Chicago 37 and New Jersey 36. Houston leads the West Division with 48 points, followed by Winnipeg with 46, two ahead of Edmonton. Minnesota has 43 points, Vancouver 34 and Los Angeles 30. Rookie centre Claude St. Sauveur got his 23rd and 24th goals of the season and also assisted on Murray Myers' first-period goal. Lawson gave the Blazers a 6-0 lead early in the third period before Bob McAneeley and Blair McDonald scored for the Oilers. Among records Lawson established in the league's first year of operation were: most games scoring three or more goals in one season, six; most games scoring four or more goals in one season, three; and most power-play goals in one season, 20.
