Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Harris scores two as they sink Golden Seeds Islanders on first two-win streak -Wedn.tday, March 21, 1973 -THE LETHBR1DGI HIKAIB By RON SUDLOW Canadian Press Staff Writer It used to be news when New York Islanders won a National Hockey League game. Now they're on a modest win- ning streak. The Islanders won their llth game of the season and their second in a row Tuesday night by scoring the last three goals to down California Golden Seals Oilers move closer 3 in a clash of division door- In the other game, New York dangers moved into a secontl- lace tie with Boston Bruins in ic East Division but lost defen- ccman Rod Soiling as they Minnesota Norlh Stars 5-1. Tonight, Montreal Canadiens an clinch first place in the East with a victory over Van- couver Canucks at the Forum. In other games, Toronto Maple Leafs visit the Kings at By THE CANADIAN PRESS Alberta Oilers and Quebe Nordiques improved their playo chances Tuesday night whil New England Whalers conlin ued to make a shambles of the race in the Eastern Division o the World Hockey Association. Les Nordiques got a two-goal performance from Andre Gau- dette to carry them past Cleve- land Crusaders by a 4-1 count while Jim Harrison tallied twice to give Uie Oilers a 5-3 verdict over Minnesota Fighting Saints. At Boston, Whaler coach Jack Kelly was complaining about his club's lethargy but the Wha- lers whipped Los Angeles Sharks 4-1 for their eighth win in a row. "We were flat in the first pe- said Kelly afler the Wha- lers extended their lead over second-place Cleveland to nine poinls. "We were unable to get going but we picked up in the second and third periods and did the things we had to do. "I guess that's the sign of a good I earn when you don't play so well and can still win.'' 31 FOR CAFFERY The Sharks opened the scor Ing early in the first period on Bart Crashley's blueline driv but Terry Caffery's 34th of th season squared the count. Rick Ley tallied the winne for the Whalers in the secon period as Mike Byers and Jim Dorey rounded out the scoring At Quebec, the two club seemed mohe interested hi figh ing than scoring in the first pe riod as Les Nordiques moved I within one point of Ottawa Na tio'nals and Philadelphia Blazer who are deadlocked for four in the East. Los Angeles; Detroit Red Wings meet the Blues at St. laws, Buffalo Sabres continue their scrap with the Wings for fourth spot in the East at Chicago against the Black Hawks and the Seals move on to Pittsburgh, and a dale with the Penguins. HARRIS PRODUCING At New York, rookie right winger Billy Harris continued to show he'll pay dividends in the goal-scoring deparlment with two tallies as his team-mates followed up their 64 win over the Blues on Saturday night. Harris, the Islanders' first junior draft choice who signed for a reported a year, hadn't been producing until lid-season.

It has been deceplive be- cause the men who cast their ballots members of ihe Professional Hockey Writers Association for the most >art don't know any more about their subject than they do about the newt population of Afghanistan. Tills season, for example, Pitlsburgh writers were asked to vote for first-half All-Stars yet they hadn't even seen the Montreal Canadiens in ac- lion; not lo mention a few other teams. More often than not, NHL writers either vote blindly or with the most cas- rvine, Gene Carr, Pair- Minor hockey roundupl j. Lethbridge Midget Elks chalked up an easy 13-2 cx- libition viclory over the Mid- Colts Monday eve- players, Joe Meli, get B ning. Five Baden Pilling, Uarrell Os-' mond, Mark Baldry and Bernie Syrenne, scored twice each for the Elks. Singles came off the sticks of IDke Boychuk, Ron Moser and Randy Lowe. Cliff Miyashiro and Cam Mc- Lennan replied for the Coils. In Midget League action, the Lakers scored foil? limes in the first period and went on to bounce the Eskimos 6-2 as John I Wasilewski scored twice. Soli efforts were turned in by Doug Pitt, Garry Dogterom, Dave Linton and Sid Braak. Rob Wilson and Doug Froh- lick picked up one goal each for the Eskimos. The Nuggets scored two goals in each of the three periods and skated to a 6-2 victory over the Eagles in Bantam "B" action Monday night. John Husch tallied a pair of goals in the win white singles were scored by Mark Rowe, Brian Van Egmond, Alvin May and Wesley Findlay. Kevin Hartley and Toby Goodstriker replied for the Eagles. The Lclhbridge Pee Reps travelled to Great on the weekend and came with a split in two exhibitiaS hockey games. Meanwhile, Lclhbridge Mil get Colls will host Bow Islaij in the first game of a best-fcC three Spud League finals night at at Henderson Centre. The Midget Elks, on the otljj cr hand, travel to Strathmofi to open the Southern Juvenile League final. Game tonight in Strathmore is set foi ual knowledge what they are voting about. The result, of course, is a galaxy of so-called "stars11 many of whom have no more business being voled to Ihe All-Star Team, than Mike Pelyk. That is annoying enough: but what is even more irk- some is the fact that many of the overblown, overpriced "stars" never get their come- uppance from the very same newsmen who do the inflating in Ihe first place. So, as a public service to hockey justice we hereby pre- sent not the 1973 All-Slars but the first annual Fall- Star Team the latest collec- tion of overrated skaters who once promised us everything but have fallen far short of delivering the Big Goods. BOYS' FORTREL SLACKS A GROUP TO CLEAR AT YOUNG MEN'S BLUE JEAN CUFFED BAGGIES Sizes 26 to 34. SPECIAL 1. R c A Berenson, Detroit Keil Wings: Detroit's manag- er Ned Harkness thought he was getting a latler-day Gor- die Howe when .Berenson ar- rived in the Motor City from St. Louis. Instead the Red Wings obtained a depressing- ly non productive skater whose only contribulion so far this year has been an inter- esting between periods in- terview on NBC television. Both Harkness and coach Johnny Wilson realize that that will not get them a play- 2. Vic Hadfielfl, New York Rangers: The way the Rang- ers captain has performed this year, he'd have trouble being a star on the New York Islanders. From September on, it seemed that Vic's cliief purpose in life has been an endless explaining a way of his walkout on Team Canada. Hadfield's 50-goaI year last off berth. In fact they must seriously bs wondering just what, if anything, Berenson will get Uicm on Uio player market. Berenson's problem is that he received an overplay in St. Louis where he happened to be the best of a collection of mediocrities Skills Red still has, but his drive ap- pears gone and the ability to muck it heartily in tlie man- ner of a Howe apparently never was there in the first place. season has become just a memory and often appears tq be more of a dream than a 1972 reality. Without the ar- tistic Jean Ratelle and the crafty Rod Gilbert to flank him, Hadtield would come olf as he really is; a rather pedestrian left wing with a hard shot and an erstwhile sense of humor. .99 GRAB TABLE BOYS' SHIRTS in Stripes and CLEARING AT 99" BOYS' PANTS 99" 2 Regular 6.95 to 10.95.

Norm Ullman, Toronto Maple Leafs: Once the bell- wether of ihe Red Wings and later hoped-for Maple Leafs Messiah, the Alberta native has had it as a first-line center. And isn't Edmonton's Bill Hunter glad he went for Jim Harrison last summer instead of Ullman in stocking Iiis World Hockey Association Oilers? Ullman. may have the right ice ideas but, unfortunately, his legs won't get him where he wants to go anymore. Which may help explain why the Maple Leafs prospects sink deeper each week than borings for the latest Toronto subway. 4. Derek panderson, Boston can't go back to the Dritins: Once hockey's trend- seller Sanderson is learning to his dismay that his act is stale. Look at the evidence: Olheiv skaters wear must- aches', others have Tvritten books and wear prettier clothes and date lovelies just the way Derek does. So what can adorable Derek do for an encore? He the league that was so glad to get rid of him. And he can't startle anyone anymore, even if he skates out one night in a bnish-cut. In fact, there's hardly anything exciting San- derson can do Ihese days but play hockey. And there's some question about just how well and how much longer he can even do that. 16 ,99 New Spring Merchandise Arriving Daily See Us Soon "We have the clothes you need for Ihe life you lead."

Guy LaFleur, Montreal Canartiens: The one time won- der boy of Quebec junior hockey simply hasn't clicked to the degree that his press notices once suggested, in 1971. LafleuT has the gifts, to be sure, but somehow they don't come off very prettily .in the NHL, as they did in the Que- bec junior League. At least 5. Tony Esposito, Chicago Black Hawks: Not since Rudy Pilous was coach and Glenn. Hall fended goal have the Black Hawks won a Stanley Cup. There are many rea- sons for this sorry slate of affairs and one of the best is weak clutch goallending. Specifically, Tony Esposito's failure to deliver enough big playoff games enough limes to able Chicago to manacle The Mug. Tony's playoff failures not nearly as smartly as Kichard Martin's goals in Buffalo or Steve Vickers checking in New York. Perhaps the pressure has been too much for Guy and Laflcur's head couldn't han- dle it. Perhaps the answer is a career in the WHA where the adjustment just might be easier all around. against the Bruins and Rang- ers in recent years have stood out as unpleasantly to Hawk fans as a nasty gust of March wind coming off Lake Michigan. Certainly, with capable defcnsemen such as Pat Stapleton, Bill White and occasionally Keith Mag- nuson in front of him, Espo- sito has no defensive gripes. But, the way Esposito has performed in past key play- oft games, Chicago fans do. m etPTiOMAL VALUE lii Step On-The-Job Comfort And Protection Safeguard your Health and Budget!
