Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday. January 17, 1974 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-11 Howe one goal short of magic 800 plateau By NEIL CAMPBELL Canadian Press Staff Writer Father Gordie set the tone for the Howe family Wednesday night. The patriarch of hoclcey's first family scored his 799th career goal to help Houston Aeros down Toronto Toros 4-1 in a World Hockey Association game. Howes contributed to three of the four Houston goals. Son Mark, an 18-year-old left winger, scored the first Aeros goal with help from his father. And Gordie and son Marty, the 19-year-old defenceman, set up the third-period goal by Jim Sherritt that gave the Aeros a 4-0 lead. ' Wednesday's goal was Gor-die's 13th of the WHA season. He scored 786 for Detroit Red Summaries Long-range goal Dave Keon (14) of Toronto Maple Leafs, beats California Golden Seals' goalie Gilles Meloche with a fake and a long slap Orr, Esposito, Martin lead balloting shot to score the second Leaf goal. Keon stole the puck and broke in alone on Meloche. Trailing the play is Seals' Ted McAneeley. Three unanimous on East All-Stars MONTREAL (CP) -Defenceman Bobby Orr and centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, along with left winger Richard Martin of Buffalo Sabres, are unanimous choices for the National Hockey League's East Division all-star team. Blues swap ST. LOUIS (AP) - Defen-cemen Steve Durbano and Ab DeMarco and left wing Bob Kelly were traded Wednesday night by St. Louis Blues to Pittsburgh Penguins for left wing Greg Polls and defenceman Bryan Watson. Also included in the deal, the Penguins' second in two weeks, was Pittsburgh's second choice in this year's National Hockey League draft. "We believe we are getting two very fine hockey players," said Blues' president Sidney Salomon, who announced the trade. "Also, we are very happy to have a second-round draft choice back." The Blues had acquired both Durbano, 22, and DeMarco, 23, from New York Rangers during trades last season. In acquiring Don Awrey, an NHL West Division all-star defenceman, at outset of the current campaign, St. Louis had given up its second-round choice in the draft to Boston Bruins. Polls, 23, was chosen by Pittsburgh during the first round of the 1970 draft and totalled 56 goals the last two seasons for the Penguins. The six-foot 195-pound Polls had 14 goals and 13 assists entering a Wednesday night game against Los Angeles, while Watson, a 31-year-old veteran of 11 NHL seasons, had a goal and four assists. Kelly, 27, was acquired by St. Louis from the Rangers' farm system. Pittsburgh had traded right wing Al McDonough, a West Division all-star right wing, to Atlanta Flames in exchange for forward Chuck Arnason and defenceman Bob Paradise. All three obtained the maximum 120 points. Results of the voting among East Division members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association (PHWA) were announced today. They showed that first-place Boston Bruins had placed five players on the team that will meet its counterpart from the West Division in the 27th annual NHL all-star game at Chicago, Jan. 29. In addition to Orr and Esposito, the other Bruins named were goaltender Gilles Gilbert, left winger Wayne Cashman and right winger Ken Hodge, with all but Cashman leading the voting for the 12-man squad at their respective positions. Second-place Montreal Canadiens had three players named-defencemen Guy Lapointe and Serge Savard and right winger Yvan Cour-noyer. Goalie Dave Dryden-joins Martin from the Buffalo club. Completing the starting lineup were defenceman Brad Park of New York Rangers and centre Norm Ullman of Toronto Maple Leafs. Scotty Bowman of the Canadiens will coach the East squad against Billy Reay of' Chicago Black Hawks. Bowman will select an additional eight players next week to complete his team. The West Division team was announced Wednesday. Bowman and Reay earned the right to coach the respective teams because their clubs finished first in their divisions last season. Bowman's Canadiens also defeated Reay's Black Hawks in the 1973 Stanley Cup final. It marked the first time since 1967-68 that in any voting for all-stars-either mid-season, official teams at the end of a season, or for all-star game competition-three players gained unanimous totals in the voting. Pronghorns host Vikings The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns varsity hockey club is currently riding a two-game winning The voting is based on five points for a first-place choice, three for a second, and one for a third. In 1967-68, the last time there was a mid-season vote for the official NHL all-star teams, the three players selected unanimously were Orr, along with centre Stan Mikita and left winger Bobby Hull of Chicago. But none of the three were unanimous choices in the second-half poll. Only three of the 12 players selected are rookies to all-star competition-goalies Gilbert and Dryden and Cashman. Veteran among the 12 selectees is Ullman, who will be making his 11th start. Orr has been in six previous games; Esposito, five; Park and Cournoyer, four each; Savard, Martin and Hodge, two each; and Lapointe, one. BOSTON 5, CHICAaO S FIral parlod - 1.

Season already in full swing By THE CANADIAN PRESS Emile Francis says he's already noticed an improvement in New York Rangers since he went back to coaching them last week. "This team's been having trouble scoring on the road," Francis said Wednesday night after the Rangers tied Detroit Red Wings 4-4 in a National Hockey League game. "But we were four goals behind and came back. That should prove something." Francis, who is also general manager of the Rangers, took over the coaching chores from Larry Popein after the team took a 7-2 pasting from Buffalo Sabres a week ago tonight. Under Francis, the Rangers, who have had a disappointing season had whipped Vancouver Canucks and California Seals before Wednesday's game.
