Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, January 27, 1971 Hodge, Dorey, Green suffer for actions s overshadow Vancouver-Chicago draw By THE CANADIAN PRESS Early in the season, when Vancouver Canucks were trying to make believers in their first National Hockey League campaign, coach Hal Laycoe expressed some concern for the role of his penalty-killers. The Canucks were a solid fourth in the East at the time. Now they're a distant fifth, and there was evidence Tuesday night that killing penalties is still one of their problems. Chicago Black Hawks, leaders in the West, scored twice with a man advantage to salvage a 3-3 tie with the Camucks in the only scheduled game. Tonight, St. Louis Blues visit Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs go against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, Boston Bruins are at New York against the Rangers, Los Angeles Kings entertain Buffalo Sabres and California Golden Seals are host to Minnesota North Stars. Producing penalty killers had been one of Laycoe's strong points during his 24-game stint as Los Angeles coach last sea- Cougars thump locals OIKAWA ADVANCES-Tricky Oikawa of Picture Butte won the District 2 playdowns Tuesday evening at the Lethbridge Curling Club.

FORT MACLEOD - ALBERTA back that started last week at the Lethbridge Curling Club as he stopped Lawrence Lennon of Lethbridge 11-7 in the final. Seven rinks opened the Dis trict 2 men's playdown last week and Lennon and his local mates emerged with the spoils in section A and awaited the winner of the B division. The Oikawa. foursome battled back from a loss in the second round and sidelined Steve Gillies of Lethbridge in the B semi - final and then dumped Garth Nillson of Wren tham in the B final. Lennon needed only one win to advance to the Gas City but was thwarted in his bid first Sunday and again Tuesday. With Tricky on his winning rink were brothers Kiyo and Uichi and John Barron. Meanwhile in Calgary Three-time world champion Ron Northcott of Calgary was eliminated from the city curling playoffs for the first time in 10 years Tuesday night. Northcott was trimmed 10-8 by Les Rowland of Calgary after a hard - fought battle in the final ends of the encounter. Rowland pulled into the lead with three points on the ninth end for an 8-6 edge, forced Northcott to take one in the 10th and then scored two in the 11th when Northcott missed a takeout with his last rock. In the 12th Rowland missed a draw with his last rock and allowed the former world champion to make a precise takeout to sit four. However, Northcott was heavy and took out one of his own rocks and rolled out. Rowland then made the draw with his' last shot and Northcott failed when he tried a nearly impossible double. Northcott was world champion in 1966, 1968 and 1969. He skipped the Alberta rink at the finals in 1964 and 1967 as well as in his championship years. Three other zone winners will join Rowland at the Southern Alberta playoffs. These are Jack Anderson, who beat Roy For syth 8-2, George Fink, who beat Rowland 8-2 earlier and Forsyth, who edged Slim Ot-terson 11-10. Ian Hunter scored three goals to pace Calgary Cougars to a 7-2 Alberta Junior Hockey League victory over Lethbridge Sugar Kings Tuesday night. The win moved the Cougars to within two points of first-place Red Deer Rustlers. Rob Leguilloux scored one goal and added three assists for the Cougars to regain first place in the League scoring race with 66 points. John Huber, Al Pollock and Don Desrosiers also counted for Calgary, who lead 2-1 after the first and 4-2 after two. Gary Paskuski scored twice for the Sugar Kings. Scott Darling turned aside 35 drives on the Calgary goal while John Davidson, who played 2% periods, and Phil Wandler combined to block 30 shots for the visitors. The teams split 26 penalties. A third - period fight sent three members from each team to the dressing rooms, including goalie Davidson. Five game misconducts were assessed in the rough-and-ready affair. Jim Damburger and John Huber lost their tempers and threw their gloves off. After this mishap Don Southern and John Davidson of the Kings and Brian Smith and John Daupree of the Cougars all received game misconducts for their part in the tussle. Mount Royal held period scores of 3-1 and 4-2 and finished the penalty - filled game with three unanswered goals in the third. son. While the Kings continued to lose, their record for killing of penalties was impressive. But as they faltered Tuesday night, Bobby Hull scored his 29th goal of the year at 8:42 of the second period when Vancouver defenceman Gary Doak was serving a minor. Chicago defenceman Pat Sta-pleton evened the game at 2-2 in the second period while Canucks' Mike Corrigan was off. But Corrigan returned to put Vancouver ahead again with his second goal of the game. The Canucks impressed offensively and only steady goaltend ing by Chicago's Gerry Desjar-dins late in the game prevented them from carrying off the victory. Des jardins stopped winger Paul Popiel twice and rookie defenceman Dale Tallon late in the game. MORE FINES LEVIED ANDY CAPP VALUE VILLAGE LTD. LETHBRIDGE - ALBERTA ' SI 'S FOOD STORE LETHBRIDGE - ALBERTA Lancaster offered job WINNIPEG (CP) - Head coach Jim Spavital of Winnipeg Blue Bombers says he has approached Ron Lancaster about a coaching job when the veteran Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback retires from play. "I know Ronnie would like to get into coaching," said Spavital. He said Lancaster, who faces minor surgery to mend a flaw in his right elbow that troubled him last season, told him he isn't through playing yet. Spavital said he called Dave Skrien, head coach of the Rough-riders, and "chewed him out pretty good" about hiring assis-tant coach John Payne away from the Bombers, citing a Canadian Football League rule that bars "tampering" - approaching team staff with job offers without permission of se- [ nior management. "Then I said that If he wanted to play it that way, I'd like to talk to Ronnie Lancaster. You should have heard the hemming and hawing. He finally gave me the okay, but only when I had him convinced that I was interested in Lancaster as a coach." Spavital said Monday Lancaster told him he would like to try coaching some day. Spavital's other assistant coach, defensive specialist Bert Clark, does not plan to return next year to the Western Football Conference club. In other developments, NHL president Clarence Campbell tagged Boston winger Ken Hodge with fines totalling $350 for his actions in a Jan. 17 game with Toronto at Boston Garden. Hodge and Toronto's Jim Dorey were each assessed $50 fines for misconducts when both refused to go to the penalty box after receiving fighting major penalties. Another $100 was levied when they were thrown out of the game for continuing to fight and had another $100 each tagged on when they came out of the penalty box to continue their brawl-1 ing. Hodge got an extra $100 fine when he shoved linesmen Pat Shetler and Dave Shewchyk during the skirmish. Boston defenceman Ted Green was assessed a $200 fine for leading players from both benches over the boards during the Hodge-Dorey fight. Campbell said he will probably announce fines resulting from a Toronto-Los Angeles game Jan. 25 by Friday. It was the third time this month the Leafs have participated in a mass exodus from the players' bench to assist team-mates on the ice. Toronto coach John Mc-Lellan's worry that his Leafs might be hit hard by the frequency of their bench-clearing incidents was confirmed Tuesday by Campbell who sadd this fact would be considered when deciding the fines.

The rapid-fire sale of the remaining 4,000 Garden seats, at $20, $40 and $75 each, assured a live gate of approximately $1,250,000-the largest ever for an indoor bout. The around-the-world, closed-circuit telecast is expected by the promoter to bring in additional revenue of up to $9 million and be viewed by 20 to 30 million people. The Garden, is co-promoting the fight with a syndicate headed by Jack Kent Cooke of Los Angeles. The last tickets for seats were sold within two hours Monday. The Garden immediately began sale of tickets for the closed-circuit telecast at the sites it has been awarded by the Cooke group, Fight of Champions, which owns all the ancillary rights to the fight. $6.7 MILLION GUARANTEED At a Garden news conference, Cooke's partner, Jerry Peren-chio, said basic guarantees for the rights to the live telecast of the fight, still more than six weeks away, have totalled "about $6.7 million." The guarantees by successful bidders for the television rights are to be applied against a percentage of their gross. Madison Square Garden has guaranteed an additional $700,000, against 70 per cent of the live gate, to Fight of the Champions. There will bo no radio broadcast or delayed telecasts of the fight. Ali, who has made a successful comeback after an enforced, three-year hiatus while he battled a draft-dodging charge, and Frazier, the generally-recognized titleholder, each will re- ceive $2.5 million-the largest purses in history for a single fight. The $4.5 million put up by Cooke's group, plus the Garden's $700,000 guarantee, will cover the fighters' shares and the $226,000 tax that goes to the New York State Athletic Com mission for the ancillary rights. The live proceeds from the 19,500 sellout will almost double the previous record indoor gate of $688,000 for the first fight card at the new Madison Square Garden-a March 4, 1968 dou bleheader that pitted Frazier against Buster Mathis and Nino Benvenuti against Emile GriT fith.
