Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Locals end regular season Sunday in Red Deer Wednoltfoy, March 1, 1972 THE IETKBRIDGE HERAID 9 ANDY CAPP Sugar Kings fail to hold lead against Cougars By LLOYD YAMAGIS1II ilcrnlil Sports AVrilcr The Lcllibridge Sugar Kings dropped a 3-1 lead midway through I he second period und suffered a 7-4 loss at tlie lumds of t h e Calgary Mount Royal Cougars Tuesday night. Although the Sugar Kings were bounced hard in front of 450 spcclators at Henderson Ice Centre last night, they still clinched fourth placn aided by the Falcon's 8-7 overtime vic- tory over the Edmonton Maple Leafs in Druniheller. The Kings have 41 points with one league game remain- ing while the Leafs sport 37 points and will complete their Wings back in fourth after routing Canucks By THE CANADIAN PRESS Condition, which Detroit coach Johnny Wilson has stressed since taking over the National Hockey League club T-esls prove it several weeks into the season, reared its head early Tuesday night and really a factor. The Red Wings scored early and often in an 8-2 rout of Van- Bobby Orr tops MONTREAL layoffs since they carry only wo players of junior age. In last night's encounter, n ]0isy crowd watched the Sugar Kings nab a 1-fl first period lead ind a 3-1 gap midway through he second. Tlie Cougars came back with ,wo quick goals before the sec- und period ended and then chalked up four more markers n the final 20 minutes to earn West sparks victory By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jerry West's shooting has earned him the name "Mr. Clutch." So it isn't surprising when his great shooting wins a game. The Los Angeles Lakers guard, with 11 years as a pro- fessional in (he National Basket- ball Association, the spark Tuesday night in a 114-111 vie tory over New York Knicks. It was West's field goal after ]2 seconds of the fourth quarter that gave the Lakers the lead. It was another clutch basket in the last half minute that iced the game lor Los Angeles. The 33-y e a r -o 1 d star scored 32 points, 22 in the second half. The victory over the Knicks clinched the Pacific Division title for Ihe Lakers and puts the team on a collision course with Chicago Bulls, the runner-up team in [be Mid-west Division of the Western Conference. The Lakers have never won an NBA title. They set a profes- sional sports record o f M straight victories earlier this season, and have a chance at eclipsing the NBA record for victories in a single season. IMS Angeles is 57-11, including a league record-tying 28 victories on (he road. Tlie team needs 12 victories to break the 68-victory record set by Philadelphia 76ers in 1966-G7. In other NBA action, Milwau- kee Bucks defeated Detroit Pis- tons 131-113, Seallle SuperSonics edged Baltimore Bulets 18-17, Atlanta Hawks trimmed Buffalo Braves 99-98, Chicago Bulls thumped Portland Trailblazers 116-92, and Golden State War- riors topped Cincinnati Royals 12B-120. In (be American Basketball Association, it was Florldians 134, Pittsburgh 126 and Utah !2fi, Memphis tin. interim coach Frank (King) Clancy, arc in action tonight at St. Louis against the Blues. Elsewhere, Buffalo Sabres visit Montreal Canadians, Cali- fornia Golden Seals are in New York against the Hangers and Angeles Kings entertain Chicago Black Hawks. Mickey Redmond's 36th of the year at Detroit broke a score- less deadlock with about six minutes left in the opening pe- riod. Within three minutes, Guy Charron and Nick Libett made it Rosairc Paiment scored Van- couver's first goal in the final minute of the period, but Char- ron, Libett and rookie Marcel Dionna with two goals in the second period put the game out of reach, PROGRAM PAYS Wilson's conditioning program began to lake effect late in Nov- ember and was particularly evi- dent on the weekend of Nov. 27- 23 when New York and Mont- real, locked in first place in the East, arrived for back-foback games at the Olympia. In both games, the Red Wings came on strong in the third pe- riod to knock off the division 1 eacters. Since th en, they've turned around a number ga mes with their third -periot offence, which, to date, has msde Wilson somewhat of prophet in the mould of Punch Tmlach, the ailing Buffalo men tor. When Wilson took over the Wings lie said: "If you've go teams of equal ability, over the long haul the one that's in the V--.U condition will Imlach, when he first came up to tlie NHL with Torontc Maple Leafs in the late 1950s found himself in a similar posi lion and msr.y of hjs quotes ap- peared to have a significant re on which side of the ice one stood. "This victory meant a lot t said Wilson in the Detroi dressing room.
