Utr UW< Wh M. »Iwppllll Mill UtMite AlbHte Nww (4M) IM-T411 PILINQ CABINETS Converting defencemen to forwards pays off for Longhorns Ken Klinkhammer authors winner ■TItc Herald* Sports By PAT SULUVAN Herald Sports Editor Coach Stan MaxweU of the Lethbridg« Longhorns, has found a new way to win hockey games. He uses a two-point conversion. That's right, a two-point conversion. T^iesday night before better than 800 supporters, Maxwell converted oefenceinan Ken Klinkhammer‘to a forward and he scored the winning goal at the 8:35 mark of sudden-deatb overtime and it was two points m the standings for the Longhorns and more frustration for the Pass Red Devils. Red Devils, who set the pace in the Alberta Junior Hockey League earlier in the year, have won Just three of their last U games and are now fourth. Maxwell was forced to use Klinkhammer and Reid Johnson, yet another bluellner, at the forward positions after forwards Bruce Small and Ron Krikke got the gate from referee Gerry Gray at the 9; 53 mark of the third period. It turned out to be a rewarding move for the Longhorns as Klinkhammer fired the puck behind a helpless Mike McCollam who had been knocked to the ice by Longhorns’ Randy Joevenaz* zo. Joevenazzo, who centres Small and Krikke, broke in alone on McCollam but was caught from behind just as he shot the puck. McCollam made the initial save but was flat on his back as Klitdchammer had a whole net to shoot at. Albert Dumont, the game’s first star, Dennis-Hatt and Small scored the other Longhorn markers. Tony Bouchard, Rick Austin and Lyle Murray replied for the Pass. Brilliant outing Dale Emmelkamp, Lethbridge Longhorn netminder, turned in one of his finest hours Tuesday night as the 'Horns sliped past the Pass Red Devils 4-3 in overtime. Emmelkamp made 42 saves, many of them outstanding. Mike McCollam, at the other end of the rink, was no less effective blocking 48. White, Goldsworthy close, but no one was unanimous MONTREAL (CP) -Defenceman Bill White of Chicago Black Hawks and right winger Bill Goldsworthy of Minnesota North Stars are the players closest to being the unanimous choice of voters for the National Hockey League’s West Division all'stars. Results of the poll released Tuesday 'showed that White and Goldsworthy each received 114 of a possible 120 points m batlotmg conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association (PHWA) in eight West Division cities. The two veterans were among 12 players from six of the eight West Division clubs named to the squad that will face the East in the league’s all'Star game at Chicago, Jan. 29 Philadelphia Flyers, leaders in the West this season, had three ^ . named to the team, while the second-place Hawks had two others in addition to White. Goaltender Bernie Parent, defenceman Ed Van Impe and centre Bobby Clarke were picked from the Flyers, while netminder Tony Esposito and left winger Dennis Hull join White as Chicago representatives Goldsworthy and centre Dennis Hextall will represent Minnesota, while left winger Lowell MacDonald and defenceman Dave Burrows were picked from Pittsburgh Penguins Defenceman Don Awrey of St Louis Blues and right winger Al McDonough of Atlanu Flames round out the selection. Los Angeles Kings and California Golden Seals failed to place a player on the team, coach Billy Reay of _    TOPgUAllTY SNOWMOBILE CLOTHING •    SUITS •    JACKETS . boots 50<Vii OffI LIMITED QUANTITY!

Stasiuk named ST, LOUIS (AP) - Vic SU' siuk, who became an assistant coach for the National Hockey League’s St. Louis Blues earlier this season, was named Tuesday as coach and general manager of the Western Hockey League's Denver Spurs Stasiuk, 44, succeeds former Blues’ defenceman Bob McCord, 39, who had held the helm for the Denver club since the beginning of the season. Stasiuk, whose playing career included 13 NHL seasons, coached Philadelphia Flyers in 1969-70 and 1970-71 and spent the next two seasons as coach of California Golden Seals and then Vancouver Canucks The two clubs were tied l-l at the end of the first period thanks to the oft-times brilliant work of Lethbridge netminder Dale Emmdkamp and a couple of goal posts. Longhorns took a 3-1 lead with them into the dressing room after two periods but the Pass, on third period goals by Austin and Murray, tied the game. The Devils almost won it as big Brian McLean somehow missed jamming the puck into an open side late in the final stanza.    ^ Both McCollam and Emmelkamp were outstanding McCollam blocked 48 shots while Emmelkamp was tested 42 times. Only three minor penalties marred proceedings in the first two periods before a little Hades broke loose in the third. Small and Randy Sparks led things off in front of the Pass goal. It didn’t appear that either scrapper landed any effective blows and things iieemed well under control until Small went after Sparks in the penalty box Small got, and deserved a game misconduct. Sparks, however, had gone to the penalty box and was inside when Small went after him. However, Sparks also got the gate    ' While Small and Sparks were being penaliicd Ron Krikke and Bill Kelts went at it and also took an early shower. The most one-sided battle of the ni^t took place at the 18.01 mark of the third period when Hatt and McLean went at it. ’The rookie Hatt, despite looking no worse for wear, was in a mismatch as McLean’s arm got tired from throwing punches. Coach MaxweU was pleased with- the perfomTance of his chains. “We’ll be spoilers the rest of the year,” he said. Longhorns, after a disastrous start to the year, have come on strong of late winning six of their last 11 as well as two ties but trail the Pass by 12 points for the last playoff spot. In Calgary the Canucks scored two goals in the flrst two minutes and went on to defeat Drumheller Falcons 42. The win was the sixth in a row for the Canucks and left Drumheller with a six-game losing streak. Russ Hall, Don Eastcott, Mike Mclvor and Butch Owchar scored for Calgary, while Garth Morgan scored both goals for the Falcons. Red Deer Rustlers scored three unanswered third period goals, one on a penalty shot, to earn a 4-4 tie with Edmonton Mets. Mets led 4-1 after the second period but Teriy Wittchen ignited the Red Deer comeback after only 26 seconds of the third. Kelly Bunn made it 4-3 at 2:49 when he was awarded a penalty shot after twing hauled down from behind on a break-away. Irvine Bowles scored the tying goal for Red Deer and Murray Dea, Tony Currie, Rick Zaparniuk and Joe Poplawski replied tor Edmonton Meanwhile Roger Mitchell of Drumheller Falcons continues to hold a narrow lead m AJHL scoring race Mitchell has 65 points on 27 goals and 38 assists for a two-point edge over Terry Wittchen of Red Deer Rustlers who has 30 goals and 33 assists for 63 points League statistics released Tuesday show that Red Deer s Brian Sutter is third with 58 points Jim Bowman of Edmonton Mets had backto-to-back shutouts last week but it wasn't enough to overtake Red Deer’s Ron Bouxiwe, who leads the goallenders with a 2 fi8 goals-against average Brent McCracken of the ‘Pass Red Devils leads in penalty minutes with 178 loose pucks - Gary HuU, brother to Bobby and Dennis, was at Tuesday’s game . . .
