Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 1, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 9 IT'S NOSE TO NOSE AS THEY GET DOWN TO THE WIRE - A couple of hard noted pugilists, Joe Frazier, left, Muhammad All ham (t up, as they got together recently. With only one week to go, the two fighters are probably looking forward to their earnings for the night's work, probably in the neighborhood of $2.5 million apiece. The only problem - they have to face each other. Red Wing leader not happy Howe's whereabouts unknown By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Sports Writer A couple of established record holders figured prominently in injury reports that riddled National Hockey League dubs during the weekend. Phil E s p o s i t o, whose 126 points in 1968-69 is tops for a single season, underwent surgery Saturday to remove a lump on his forehead, aftermath of a collision with team-mate Johnny Bucyk early in February. But that didn't stop the Boston Bruins centre from scoring his 52nd goal and adding an assist in a 4-3 win over Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday. Gordle Howe's whereabouts, however, remain unknown following reports out of Detroit that the Red Wings' all-time NHL scoring leader is on a self-enforced holiday mainly be- New look in Stanley Cup MONTREAL (CP) - The Stanley Cup playoffs will take on a new look this spring. As in the past, the quarter-finals will be intra-division affairs. Series A will have the first- and teams from the East Division playing, series B will involve the second-and fourth-place teams from the East, series C will see the first-and third-place teams in the West square off while series D will have the second- and fourth-place teams from the West as participants. The new look will occur in the semi-finals. Series E will pit the winner of series A against the winner of series D while series F will have the winner of series B opposing the winner of series C. It will be the first time that East Division and West Division teams oppose each other in the semi-finals. The winners of series E and F will of course meet in the Stanley Cup. All series will be best-of-seven affairs. cause of his disenchantment with the team's performance and the front office. But that didn't stop the Wings, fifth in the East, from strapping Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 in another Sunday game. Vancouver defenceman Barry Wilkins was carried from the ice on a stretcher as the Canucks bowed 4-2 to New York Rangers, and Minnesota North Stars took a 5-2 lacing from Buffalo Sabres while playing without rookie defenceman Fred Barrett. Wilkins apparently suffered back injuries when he slid into the Vancouver goal post while attempting to block a shot. Barrett was lost for the season Saturday night when he broke his thigh bone after crashing into a goal post. Kasting breaks Alberta record The Lethbridge Lions Swim Club travelled to Medicine Hat over the weekend and participated in a meet with four other clubs called "Operation Olympics Alberta Section." The Lions club did extremely well winning more than their share of events. Wendy Kasting was the bright spot of the meet as she picked up four first place finishes. Swimming in the girls 13-14 age group. She broke the Alberta record in the 200 metre backstroke with a time of 2:39:8 minutes. Along with the backstroke event she finished first in the 100 metre freestyle, 100 metre butterfly and 400 metre freestyle. Also swimming in this division and coming home with ribbons were Cindy Gleb and Leslie Johnson. Gleb racked up two seconds and two thirds while Johnson gained three third place ribbons. In the boys 13-14 division Barry Emerson raced home first in the 100 metre butterfly and 400 metre freestyle along with thirds in the 400 metre freestyle and 200 metre breast-stroke. Other winners' in this section were Henry Van Egteren and Tim Emerson. Van Egteren picked up a second, two fourths and a sixth place finish while Tim Emerson raced home sec- ond, third, fourth and fifth in his events. Wendy Tuk also shone for the girls as she took home three firsts and a second swimming in the girls 11-12 division. Her first place finishes were in the 100 metre individual medley, 100 metre backstroke and 100 metre freestyle while her second place finish came in the 200 metre breaststroke. Shirley Van Dyke was the only other girl in this category that came up with a good showing as she placed second in the 200 metre backstroke behind Tuk and a third in the 100 metre freestyle. In the boys 11-12 age group Gordon Syme and Rob Emerson were tops for their club. Syme picked up a second, third and two fourth place finishes while Emerson came in second, third and fifth in his events. John Jacobson topped the boys 10 and under for ribbons as he raced home second in the 100 metre backstroke and third in the 100 metre freestyle. NEARING TITLE SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Gustavo Thoeni of Italy won the giant slalom in a snowstorm at Heavenly Valley today to move closer to the World Cup ski championship for the season. Elsewhere Sunday, Gilles Marotte and Ross Lonsberry scored two goals each as Los Angeles Kings drubbed the hometown California Golden Seals 8-3. Saturday's schedule saw Montreal Canadiens trim St. Louis Blues 3-2, Toronto blank Buffalo 2-0 on goal tender Jacques Plante's fourth shutout of the year, New York down Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0, Minnesota defeat Detroit 4-2, Philadelphia Flyers drub Vancouver 8-1 and Chicago Black Hawks overpower Los Angeles 4-1. Esposito, with 117 points, seems almost assured of surpassing his season's mark with 17 games still to play. And while each goal he scores pads his single-season record for centres, he's closing in on the record 58 of Chicago winger Bobby Hull. The Bruins took advantage of Bobby Baun's absence from the Leaf defence to open a 3-0 lead in the first period on goals by Eddie Westfall, Ken Hodge and Wayne Carleton. Esposito's goal made it 4-0 before Toronto got settled away and closed to within one by game's end. The Red Wings, meanwhile, are suffering through a period of unrest, both on and off the ice. A slow start which eventually brought on a series of trades and a mid-season shuffle in the front office has the Detro-iters pressing to stay out of the East Division basement. General manager Ned Hark-ness admitted during the weekend that Howe's current vacation was the player's idea, and not that of club president Bruce Norris as was reported earlier, A Detroit newspaper says Howe was disgusted with the team's front office and on-the-ice troubles this season and was considering plans to retire. SCORE WITH MAN OFF But the Red Wings responded by scoring once while short-handed and another on the power-play in their home-ice win over Pittsburgh, extending the Penguins' winless string to seven games. Locals retain Alberta crown Chinooks provincial champs Wilms Winter and her University of Lethbridge Chinooks had a most enjoyable weekend in Red Deer. Chinooks were impressive as they easily won the Alberta junior girl's basketball championship. The victory enabled the locals to retain the crown they won last year. The Chinooks won the title in a three-team playoff including Red Deer College Queens and Mount Royal College Kittens. In their first encounter the Chinooks belted Red Deer 66-29 as Leona Voth scored 26 points in an outstanding individual effort. Red Deer, in turn, stopped Mount Royal 5449 and then in the final of the round-robin affair the Chinooks trounced Mount Royal 71-25 with Voth again leading the way. In the Mount Royal game she hit for 18 points as coach Winter substituted freely throughout the one-sided contest. . Chinooks now advance to the Canadian finals March 12-13 in British Columbia at a site not as yet announced. Meanwhile in Winnipeg the University of Manitoba Bisons won their first Western Cau-ada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Basketball Championship since 1957 with a 68-65 victory Saturday over University of British Columbia Thunder-birds. Ross Wedlake led the Bisons' scoring parade with 19 points, followed by Angus Burr with 16 and Red Stoesz with 11. Terry McKay hit for 21 points for the defending champion Thunderbirds, Derek Sankey Minor hockev In Pee Wee action Saturday morning the Vikings downed the Falcons 4-1. Jeff Takeyasu fired home three markers for the Vikings while Monty Mitchell added a singleton. Mike Roth scored for the Falcons in the second period. The Blues rolled to a 3-1 victory over the Sabres by banging in two goals in the final period. Mike Goluk led the Blues with two markers while Kevin Hunt chipped in with one. Greg Krokosh averted a shutout with a third period goal. Tony Meli and Jake Vanset-ers both blasted in two goals each as they paced the Seals to a 4-2 win over the Mustangs in Bantam "B" play. The two clubs were tied 1-1 after the first period of play and both failed to click in the second. For the Mustangs Bill Ross and Richard Laplace tallied a goal apiece. In provincial play-off action the Lethbridge Marlands hosted the Taber Pee Wee Chefs over the weekend and came up with a hard-fought 7-5 victory. The Marlands now have won the first round of play-offs 12-8 in total goals and will meet Fort Macleod in the next round. After the first period the Marlands held a 2-0 lead and increased it to 5-2 after the second. Keith Miyashiro, Leroy Pav-an and Lome Osmond all notched two goals to lead the Marlands while David Snopek aided with a singleton. For the Taber crew Jerry Orban flipped in two while Cam Fabbi, Dale Setoguehi and Don Bowman added a goal each. The Marlands also were assessed nine of the 13 penalties called in the encounter. Mike Trentini and Bob Conine scored once each as the Tigers edged the Penguins 2-1 Playoffs open this weekend in Edmonton Sugar Kings finish season in second The Lethbridge Sugar Kings completed their 1970-71 Alberta Junior Hockey League campaign in Edmonton over the weekend and came home ties in both their encounters.

Red Deer won the league pennant on 30 wins, 11 losses and nine ties with 69 points while the Calgary Mount Royal Cougars ended the season in third with 25 wins, 17 losses and 7 ti"^ for 57 points.

Rick Norden scored with lees than a minute left to play in the game to give the Maple Leafs the tie Saturday night. Norden added another marker earlier in the contest but needed the help of Terry Smith, Kurt Shokopoles and Dale Bowler to gain the draw. For the Kings Len Chalmers notched two goals while Fraser Robertson, Dave George and Randy Andreachuk chipped in with a goal each. The Sugar Kings outshot the Leafs 24-23 and took 12 of the 25 penalties called in the rough contest. Each team was assessed three majors for fighting and Wayne Poison of Edmonton and Dave George of Sugar Kings were evicted from the game. Poison was kicked out in the second period for spearing while George left in the third for leaving the penalty box. Sunday Craig Wolansky scored with only one second to go on a pass from Mel Gush-attey to give Edmonton Movers a 4-4 tie with the Kings. Movers led 2-0 at the end of the first period and 3-1 after the second, but Lethbridge scored two goals within a min- ute and 11 seconds - the second one in a power play-to tie the game.
