Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thundoy, Match 22, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HLRAIO Wings. Sabres both lose Big M used a shank shot to score his 500th goal By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Wrilcr It may have felt like a golf shot to Frank Mahovllch, but to more than Montreal Fo- rum fans it might have been the Stanley Cup's final goal. The Big M's 5Mlh career goal on a controversial call early in the third period not only nailed down a 3-2 Montreal Canadiens victory over Vancouver Ca- nucks and their 16th Prince of Wales Trophy for topping the division standings, it vaulted the 35-year-old winger into a se- lect circle. "It was like a shank Mahovlich recalled later in the Montreal dressing room of his 38th goal of the season. "I have been doing that so much lately." The Canucks claimed the play wss offside at the Vancouver blueline before Henri Richard centred to his team-male in front of goaltender Dune Wil- son. Vancouver detenceman .loee- lyn Guevremont moved lo cover Maliovlich but the puck skit- tered off the heel of the Mon- treal player's stick and slid slowly into the goal behind Wil- son. Minor hockey The Falcons came back from a 1-0 first period deficit and posted a 4-1 victory over the Flyers in Pee Wee action Wed- nesday night. Jim niedlbuthcr, Kevin Ham- ilton, Terry Hamilton and Mark McKitmon tallied for the Fal- cons wliile Mark Dumont re- plied for the Flyers. In Fee Wee exhibition play, the Coaldale Pee Wees scorec B slim win over the Whips Warren Calder fired in a hat- trick for Coaldale while Roberl Janson scored twice. Teammates -Terry SheiulricK and David liomanchuk addw singles. Brad Axworthy tallied a paii of goals for tho Whips whil singles came from Chris Leny gel, Mike Monoghan and Randy Book. Mahovlich became only the fifth player in National Hockey League history to score 500 ca- reer goals. The all-time leader, Gordie Howe, finished Ms De- troit Red Wing career with 788 in 25 seasons. Bobby Hull had 604 with Chi- cago Black Hawks before jump- ing to the rival World Hockey Association this year. Maurice (Tha Rocket! Rich- ard scored 544 and Jean Be- liveau had with Mon- treal Canadiens. Only Mahovlich, in his 17lh year, is still active in the league. "I couldn't believe he said of the goal, remembering how Wilson had foiled him ear- lier in the game on a clear breakaway while killing a Mon- treal penalty. "I looked up and saw the mick was reallv going slow. I said it couldn't be that easy." But easy it was, much easier than the time the strapping na- tive of Timmins, Ont, has been putting in during the last few weeks as team-mates and fans alike encouraged him in his ef- forts to reach the milestone. "The past three or four weeks everybody has been asking me when it's coming. And 1 was wishing the guys wouldn't talk about the goal so much." MahovlichTs goal was his eighth of the month but the Summaries T. LOUIS t DETROIT 3 First Period 1. St. Louis, Demarca (Linger, Durbano) 2. Delrolt, edmond 47 (Berenson, Delvecchio) 3. Detroit.
