Newton kicked out 21 shots in the first period as his mates built a 2-0 lead and by the time the game finished, had thwarted the host Nordiques on 47 shots on goal. In the only other WHA game scheduled, Ron Ward of Cleve- land came back to haunt his former Vancouver team- mates with two goals, pacing the Crusaders to a 4-2 win over the Blazers. The pre-game attention was on Forey, a 23-year-old St. Lambert, Que., native who surprised many hockey observers by signing with the Cougars earlier Thursday. Two weeks ago, Forey was the recipient of a fine and a suspension until the end of the 1975-76 season after he slugged referee Malcolm Ash- ford and broke the official's nose in a Western Hockey League game The incident occurred Feb. 20 when Forey, a player with Denver Spurs, wfas playing in a game against Seattle Totems.
