Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Bucyk reaches 50'goul plateau in romp past Wings Ho hum, burly Bruins continue sizzling pace By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Phil Esposito, Johnny Bucyk uid Boston Bruins stuck to their thing Tuesday night in what was generally a fright night for National Hockey League goal-tenders. The Bruins rolled up their biggest score of the year and Bucyk became the NHL's fifth 50-goal man in an 11-4 drubbing of Detroit Red Wings. St. Louis Blues bombed Montreal Cana-diens 6-2, Minnesota North Stars rolled 7-2 over Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Black Hawks rapped Vancouver Canucks 7-4. The only game tonight has Pittsburgh Penguins in Oakland against California Golden Seals. Boston bombarded Detroit goaltender Roy Edwards with 48 shots, a shoot that yielded Bu-cyk's 49th and 50th goals of the season and Esposito's 62nd. It was the first time in NHL history two members of one team had reached the once inaccessible 50-goal mark the same year. Esposito also picked up three assists for 134 points, moving six ahead of team-mate Bobby Orr in the scoring race. Orr, who had closed to within three during the weekend, had one assist in the onslaught. The 15,547 fans was a Detroit Olympia NHL record crowd, and they were treated to the Bruins at their finest. The Bean-towners earlier in the season scored nine goals in each of three different games. St.. Louis continued their recent scoring binge at the expense of the Canadiens who had beaten them 10 times and tied five in the 16 previous games in the St. Louis Arena. 1 It THAT ELUSIVE PUCK - Boston's Mike Walton and Red Wing defence- with Detroit coach Doug Berkley and didn't dress for play in the second man Gary Bergman have the same idea as they chase a loose puck in or third periods. Tuesday night's 11-4 Bruin romp over Detroit. Bergman later had words Betsy Clifford violates curfew Ace Canadian skier suspended MONTREAL (CP) - Canada's national ski team again is without its most prominent member: Betsy Clifford has been suspended for the remainder of the season for violating a curfew. Ed Champagne, manager of the team, said Tuesday that Miss Clifford was suspended by Al Raine, the team's alpine director, and Peter FTanzen, coach of the women's team, following the U.S. national competition in Aspen, Colo., last weekend. Interviewed i n Vancouver, Raine said Miss Clifford was suspended because she "missed a curfew in Aspen." He said he endorsed the suspension Sunday before it was put into effect by Franzen. Raine said the 17-year-old skier "has wanted to retire for most of the season." "Betsy has had a lot of problems. I. had a long talk with her after the World Cup race at Mont Ste. Anne (Que.) and she wanted to retire then. I managed to talk her out of it and after that she was all fired up . . . now this had to happen. "This kid has so much talent that if she can ever find herself Youngster strips him of titles Henry Cooper retires LONDON (AP) - It's good-ye Henry Cooper. He bowed �ut of boxing today, a gentle-nan and a sportsman to the 2nd. Joe Bugner, just 21 and nearly 16 years Cooper's junior, took the European, British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from the old man by a tight Leading pitchers getting in shape By THE ASSOCIATED PRES The big-name pitchers are rapidly getting in shape for the start of the baseball season. Phil Niekro hurled five good in- EXPORTS REGULAR amid KINGS nings Tuesday, Mike Cuellar went seven . . . and Choji Mur-ata went nine. Choji Murata pitches for Japan's Lotte Orions and he stifled California Angels 7-2 on seven hits, including Tony Con-igliaro's first home run. Murata walked four and faned eight. Niekro, whose knuckleball didn't knuckle down to business last year, yielded only one hit during his stint as Atlanta Braves whipped Minnesota Twins 5-2. Baltimore's Cuellar, off a slow winter campaign, was in world championship form, blanking Los Angeles Dodgers for seven innings in a 3-0 victory. Tom Dukes finished up. Japan's other touring team, the Tokyo Giants, lost to Pittsburgh 6-2 when the Pirates scored four times in the eighth inning. Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros got strong pitching. Tom Bradley and two rookies stopped New York Yankees 8-0 on four hits as the clubs began a two-game visit to Venezuela. It was New York's eighth consecutive setback. Sore-armed Don Wilson worked five scoreless innings and Houston downed Philadelphia 4-1. Montreal Expos stole the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth when Jim Fairey and Gary Sutherland pulled a double steal and downed Kansas City 6-4. Detroit Tigers trounced New York Mets 10-4 behind a six-run outburst in the fifth. points decision after 15 bruising rounds at Wembley Tuesday night. The crowd booed the decision. But Cooper went straight to Bugner with congraulations and said: "He's a fine young fighter." Then he announced his retirement. He has been at it for 17 year and has been acclaimed as the best British boxer of all time. "You can't go on for ever," Cooper said as he reached his dressing room. "This was my last fight. "If I had won I would1 probably have gone on. But the referee's decision went against me and there is no point in continuing." Cooper, 36, ended up with 64 fights, winning 50, losing 13 and drawing one. HAD LONG REIGN He held the British title almost without a break for 12 years, was European champion three times and was one of the few boxers to knock Muhammad Ali down. Bugner, now has won 32 of his 35 fights. He was held to a draw by Bill Drover, the Wabush, Nfld., tiger now fighting out of Montreal. He won the title by the narrowest possible margin-7334 points to 73Vz on the scorecard of referee Harry Gibbs. Bugner probably got the decision by a furious all-out attack in the last round. He flung himself at Cooper and landed a flurry of lefts to the head. Before that Cooper, despite his years, had the crowd roaring with a superb two-fisted assault that brought him the 13th and 14th rounds. When the final round started it looked as if Cooper was going to keep his crown-and the 10,000 fans obviously thought he was the winner. Cooper conceded a lot of weight as well as age. At the weigh-in he was 189 pounds and Bugner was 212'A. she could be the undisputed world champion. "But Betsy has been up and down in spirit all year. Unfortunately she was dragging the rest of the team up and down with her and you can excuse somebody for this sort of thing only so many times. "I really do hope Betsy comes back next year but she has to make the big decision herself. Does she really want to be world champion or does she just want to ski for fun? I tell you one thing, if it's the latter, she is better off to quit." John Clifford, the skier's father, said in Camp Fortune, Que., the suspension came as a surprise to him. He said in an interview Champagne told him earner Tuesday that his daughter would finish the season, return to school in Ottawa and rejoin the team in the fall. Clifford said Betsy, last year's slalom world champion, had told him she had not broken any curfew rules. The only night she was not in' bed by 10:30 she was prevented from returning to the home where she was staying by a seven-inch snowfall and spent the night in a women's dormitory, Clifford said. In Toronto, Ed Creed, chairman of the national alpine committee said the skiing star "had a lot of ups and downs." "She thinks we've been too tough on her and that we're unfair, but we've always worked with her and tried to cope with her moods." BLAMES COACH Miss Clifford's father said there's no doubt in his mind that Franzen doesn't want her with the team. "There's been no rapport between them for three years," he said, referring to the length of time his daughter has been with the team. He said Betsy, returning from Aspen, was coming home mad. She was informed of her suspension in a two-minute conversation with Franzen, Clifford said, and was not given an opportunity to explain the alleged curfew violation. The real problem was the absence of a female chaperone for the women's team and the fact that the team "just isn't equipped to handle five girls." "They want her to win medals all by herself. If this suspension is true, then I think the Canadian Ski Association should launch an investigation into why she was to coach herself." Clifford said Betsy "is under more pressure than the oilier girls on the team." ^^^^^^^^ BETSY CLIFFORD - Canada's top skier has been suspended for violating a curfew. Gilmore signs fat hoop pact LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -Firing the coals for a certain dollar war with the National Basketball Association, the American Basketball Association Kentucky Colonels signed Jacksonville All-American Arfcis Gilmore to a pact called "the biggest ever given to an ABA player." The 7-foot-2 centre, flanked by Colonels' president Mike Storen and ABA president Wendell Cherry, signed the pact before 11,000 spectators in Louisville's Freedom Hall Tuesday night. The signing ceremony was carried live on television, between games of an ABA doub-leheader. George Morrison broke a personal 15-game scoring slump and Christian Bordeleau made it 2-0 in a 21-shot assault on Montreal goalie Phil Myre in the first period. The Blues continued the pressure throughout, firing 44 shots at the Montreal goaltender and opening up a 4-0 lead before the Canadiens could reply with Re-jean Houle's second-period goal. . Chicago's rookie goalie, Gilles Meloche, made an impressive NHL debut, facing 46 Vancouver shots. He stopped all but four, including two by Rosaire Paie-ment. The Black Hawks got most of their offence from Bobby Hull as the Golden Jet notched his 41st of the season and set up four others, including two by linemate Chico Maki. Chicago's Keith Magnuson collected four minutes in penalties to break the league record for penalties with 275. Howie Young set the mark of 273 minutes with Detroit in the 1962-63 season. Minnesota set a club record at Los Angeles with six goals in the first period, five of them in a span of seven minutes. Bill Goldsworthy led the parade with three, two in the first-period outburst that saw Kings' coach Larry Regan lift starting goalie Denis DeJordy in favor of Jack Norris after the North Stars had moved into a 4-0 lead on Goldsworthy's first goal. Thirty seconds later, Norris yielded his first goal and Golds-worthy's second of the night as the North Stars continued to storm the Los Angeles goal, firing 18 of their 36 shots at the Kings' goal in the first period.

His doctor said it was a round of appearances since the championship bout that laid the champion low. He's simply tired out, said the doctor. Boxing champ is laid low PHILADELPHIA (AP) -What Muhammad Ali couldn't do in 15 rounds, a week of greeting fans and signing autographs has-laid Joe Frazier low. The heavyweight champ was admitted to St. Luke's hospital in Philadelphia Tuesday, eight days after he hammered out a unanimous decision over Ali in Madison Square Garden to become the undisputed heavyweight king. Dr. James Giuffre said Frazier complained of "tiredness" on a visit to the hospital during which the champ showed fight films to children in the wards. Frazier was admitted for at least a week of rest, the doctor said, after tests revealed he had high blood pressure. "This is definitely not fight connected," the physician said, dismissing rumors that the champ had suffered serious injuries in his 15-round slugfest with Ali. The physician said the trouble stemmed from the strenuous schedule of engagements Frazier has been keeping since he nailed down the heavyweight title. Dr. Giuffre said he ordered Frazier admitted for "further rest and definitive studies." After a week of testing, he said, the staff will decide whether to discharge their famous patient. "Even if reports come back normal, we'll repeat them again and maybe a third time to make sure there's nothing or- ganically wrong," the doctor said. TO RETIRE? NEW YORK (AP) - Heavyweight champion Joe Frazier has decided to retire, says a copyrighted story printed in today's editions of Newsday, a Long Island daily newspaper. Boxing writer Bob Waters wrote that Frazier has decided to heed the pleas of his wife, Florence, and his manager-trainer, Yancey Durham, and retire as the undefeated champion. Frazier outpointed Muhammad Ali in their 15-round title bout on March 8.
