Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 15 Mikita praises Hawk back-up net minder Sabres all but out of playoff race By THE CANADIAN PRESS Chicago goalie Mike Veisor is small but mighty when he gets a chance to play for the Black Hawks in a National Hockey League game. The Rangers found the wispy Veisor a force to be reckoned with Thursday when they dropped a 5-2 decision to the Hawks in New York. Elsewhere, the combination of Boston Bruins 4-3 victory over Buffalo and Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 win over New York Islanders, all but ended the Sabres' hopes for a playoff berth in the East Division. In one other game, Phila- delphia Flyers barged to a 4-2 decision over St. Louis Blues. In tonight's action, Atlanta Flames will be guests of Van- couver Canucks and Touche, and all that Fencing, the polite sport, will be on display this weekend at Catholic Central High School as the Lethbridge Fencing Club plays host to the Alberta Championships. Action gets under way at nine each morning. A special clinic will be held this evening at seven at the school. Billy Harris not pleased with his Toronto Toros By THE CANADIAN PRESS Coach Billy Harris ticked off the Toros Thursday night after his Toronto team dropped a 3-2 decision to Quebec Nordiques in a World Hockey Association game. "Some of our athletes are overweight and overpaid." Harris complained. He said he had placed a chart of playing weights on the wall of the Toros' dressing room and he wants the players to attain them by March 27. "If they don't they'll be sus- pended without pay until they reach the required weight." Harris said The coach refused to give names, but it was rumored that one player he was concerned about was team captain Wayne Carleton TOROS SECOND Harris said if his team had clinched a playoff berth he would be tempted to put the ultimatum in effect now. The Toros are in second place in the Eastern division, one point ahead of Quebec and only three above fourth-place Cleveland But Chicago Cougars, with 67 points, are still in contention. "This was an important game against the Nordiques and we were said the disappointed Harris. Harris said he was ready to take his chances with the club's farmhands if his regulars didn't shed their fat. "I mean he said. Goalie Richard Brodeur was brilliant in goal for the Nordiques, blocking 36 shots. In other WHA games Thurs- day, New England Whalers and Houston Aeros coasted to easy victories Whalers, leaders in the East, dumped Vancouver Blazers 6-3, while the Aeros, top-place team in the West, shut out Los Angeles Sharks 6-0. The Cougars defeated Minnesota Fighting Saints 7-4. New England 6 at Vancouver 3 Hugh Harns collected two goals to spark the Whalers vho broke a 3-3 tie at of the third period on a breakaway goal by Tom Webster. Harris' goals provided all the insurance New England needed. The Whalers have defeated the Blazers in four of six games between the two teams this season, but the Vancouver team still received the support of 9.562 fans.
