Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tony Esposito earns an assist Bruins, Hawks increase their leads Mday, January 19, 1*71 - THE lETHMIDQE HERALD - f By IAN MbcLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Tony Esposito scored half as many points Thursday night as he did in the entire 1969-70 Na-tioMl Hockey League campaign, but it's unlikely he'll ever be much of a scoring threat to brother Phil. Tony, 27, is the goal tending half of the Esposito brothers from Sault ste. Marie, Ont. who turned in another sterling effort, stopping 32 shots as his Chicago Black Hawks trimmed Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1. He picked up an assist on the Hawks' final goal of the game, by Doug Mohns, It was his first point of the season. Last year, when he swept the Vezina Trophy and Calder Memorial Tro- phy as the league's outstanding Katie and rookie respectively, had two assists while recording a record 15 shutouts. Phil, 28, also picked up an assist Thursday, his 49th of the season, as his Boston Bruins drubbed Philadelphia Flyers 6-2. Phil, who also has 44 goals, appears well on the way to rewriting the league's scoring records for a single season with 30 garnet to play. At his current pace, Esposi-to's own 126 points is threatened along with the season goal-scoring mark of 88, by Chicago's Bobby Hull, and the assist record of 87, held by a Boston team-mate, defenceman Bobby Orr.

Counts shines for Suns By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For years, Mel Counts sat in Wilt Chamberlain's shadow at Los Angeles. But now he's letting the sun shine in with Phoenix. The steely seven-footer scored 29 points to lead Phoenix Suns over Los Angeles Lakers and Chamberlain 118-112 in the National Basketball Association Thursday night. Counts was picked up by Phoenix after last season to add more rebounds and scoring power to Suns' front line. In an abbreviated NBA schedule Thursday night, Seattle Su-perSonics defeated Buffalo Braves 120-110 in the only other game. Phoenix broke open a tight game towards the end of the third quarter to move into an 11-point lead. Then the Lakers scored 12 straight points to grab an 86-85 lead at the end of three quarters. But the Lakers' suddenly were ice-cold from the floor at the start of the fourth quarter and couldn't score a field goal for more than five minutes. The Suns took advantage behind Counts' points and rebounds to take a lead they never relinquished. Clem Haskins contributed 21 points and Connie Hawkins added 19 to the Phoenix cause. Jerry West lead Los Angeles with 27 points and Chamberlain had 24. Dick Snyder powered Seattle over Buffalo with a career high 35 points. The SuperSonics built a 66-58 half time lead before the Braves went ahead twice in the third period by four points. Colts grab Frith in sixth round NEW YORK (CP) - Ken Frith, a defensive end with Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Canadian Football League the last two seasons, was picked by Baltimore Colts Thursday in the sixth round of the National Football League's college draft.

ADMISSION PRICES ADULTS S1.2S - STUDENTS .75* with cards ? CHILDMN 25* Spills force cancellation - A CERVINIA, Italy (AP) series of new spills, one of them seriously injuring a British nobleman, forced cancellation of trials Thursday for the world four-man bobsled champion ships. The most serious smashup occurred near the end of the 1,540-metre which already has claimed one death and a num ber of injuries. The sled, driven by Britain1. Prince Michael of Kent, over turned as it came out of the great labyrinth heading toward the fastest sector of the icy chute. Three members of the crew fell out but the prince was caught with both legs inside and his body hanging out. He was dragged 300 metres. He was taken to Aosta Hospital where doctors said he suffered shock and cuts on the face, head and left elbow. The prince, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth, was eliminated from competition. One of the other crewinem bers suffered a gashed nose but the other two were unhurt. Organizers said they were forced to call off the second heat of the trials because of developing cracks. The event is scheduled for Saturday and Sun day. Wade Whitney of Keene Val ley, N.Y., injured his elbow when his sled banged against the wall on the final stretch. Doctors said he' definitely will be out of competition. Dimidru Focseneanu, brake man on the Romanian sled, fell off on the final curve and suffered body bruises. He also eliminated. game, Detroit goaltender Roy Edwards showed some of his old form but his Red Wing team-mates were unable to capitalise and had to settle for a 1-1 tie with St. Louis Blues. In other developments, Montreal Canadiens got rid of a disgruntled Fran Huck, sending the Regina-born centre to St. Louis in exchange for the Blues' second-round pick in the 1971 amateur draft and other considerations, Huck, 25, left the Canadiens* American League farm club, Montreal Voyageurs, earlier this month and asked the parent team to trade him if they couldn't use him. In six games' with the Canadiens this year, the former Canadian Nationals star had one goal and two assists. With the Voyageurs he picked up 12 goals and assisted on 16 in 31 games. HAWKS PAD LEAD At Chicago, goals by Eric Nesterenko, Jim Pappin and Mohns in the third period snapped a 1-1 tie as the Black Hawks padded their West Division lead over runner-up St. Louis to 15 points. The Bruins, who have had problems capitalizing on opponents' penalties in recent games, finally put it all together in the second period of their game. Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield scored 78 seconds apart, Stanfield's coming with the Flyers a man short, as the Bruins broke open a 1-1 tie with three goals before the period ended. Hodge, who tallied only 25 goals all last season, scored again in the third period, giving him 31 on the season and moving him well on the way toward equalling his previous season high of 45 goals, set two years ago. Bruins' Don Marcotte scored* while team-mate Ted Green was sitting out a minor infraction in the third period. It was the 15th time this season Boston has scored while killing off a penalty, a single-season record. Their 14th equalled the previous mark set by Chicago in 198445. HANDLE SCORING Rene LeClerc for Detroit, in the first period, and Frank St. Marseille early in the second did all the scoring in Detroit. But it was a moral victory for the Red Wings who had not been able to pick up a point in their three previous meetings this year with St. Louis. Edwards who suffered a hair-line skull fracture against these same Blues the last time they met and was sidelined until recently, had his best game in almost three months. It has been 20 games since a Detroit goaltender has allowed the opposition just one goal and the point moved the Red Wings to within one point of Vancouver Canucks, fifth in the East. is DEA SENT DOWN DETROIT (AP) - Veteran left wing Billy Dea, 37, has been sent from Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League to Fort Worth Wings of the Central Hockey League, subject to im mediate recall.
