Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IS SPORT RIGHT ON TARGET FOR 197 ANDY CAPP Playoff preview most interesting Philadelphia assured of playoff berth Friday, March 23, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGI HERALD - H By THE CANADIAN PRESS It was playoff preview night in the Western Canada Hockey League Thursday, and if the results are any indication of what's to come, the Western Division is in for two wild quarter-finals. Medicine Hat Tigers upended Calgary Centennials 7-2  in a rowdy affair in Medicine Hat and New Westminster Bruins shocked division champion Edmonton Oil Kings'10-3 in New Westminster as the 68-game regular season ended. The second-place Tigers, who finished six points in front, of Calgary, have gained a reputation for rough play, and rugged Bob Gassoff showed why: Bob, one of three brothers on the Tigers, and Calgary's Danny Mandryk tangled in the third period, but Gassoff wasn't content to let matters rest. After being slapped with a minor, major and misconduct, Gassoff tried to climb out of the penalty box to get at some Calgary players. Gassoff received a game misconduct for his efforts. Doug Sauter, Calgary's second-string goalie, was also assessed a game misconduct when he grabbed the stick of a Medicine Hat player who was skating past the Calgary bench. ANDERSON SCORES 2 On the ice, Boyd Anderson scored twice for the Tigers, with Barry Dean, Tom Lysiak, Murray Worley, Ken Gassoff and Greg Vaydlk coming through with goals. Jerry Holland and Russ Wiechnik replied for the Cents. The Oil Kings, who wrapped up first place Wednesday night, were outshot 53-18 by the fourth-place Bruins. The only bright spot for Edmonton was the 73rd goal of the season by Darcy Rota that enabled him to edge Brando n's Ron Chipperfield by one for the league title. Henry Taylor and Don Eastcott had the other Edmonton goals. Vic Mercredi scored four goals for the Bruins, Marty Kissel added two and Wayne Dye, Rod Fagerheim, Ron Kennedy and Barry Smith each scored, one.

Pressure is getting to Rangers, Bruins By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Boston Bruins, the defending Stanley Cup champions, and New York Rangers are getting moody. The two National Hockey League powerhouses continued their neck-and-neck struggle for second place in the East Division with wins Thursday night, but the pressure is getting to them. The Bruins knocked off visiting Minnesota North Stars 5-3 while the Rangers handled the Elder aims at Masters NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Lee Elder says he won't be worried about Augusta, Ga. during today's second round of the $125-000 Greater New Orleans Open golf tournament. "I won't let it put extra pressure on me," Elder said. But If he does let the pressure develop, he has a good excuse. He's gunning to become the first black player ever to compete in the staid, tradition-bound Masters. And he needs a victory here to become eligible. "Hmmm," mused Jack Nick-laus as he surveyed the big scoreboard after Thursday's opening round, when Elder bolted in front with a brilliant 65, "Lee might just settle the whole question." Elder has been the innocent centre of a racial controversy involving the Masters, it's all-white history, and its rules of eligibility, for several days. WON'T, ALTER PLANS "I would like to go to the Masters," said the 38-year-old Elder, a non-winning regular on the tour since 1968. "But I won't let it make me change my game plan." The controversy arose when Rep. Herman Badillo, D-N.Y., and 17 other U.S. congressmen petitioned Masters tournament chairman Clifford Roberts to issue a special invitation to Elder. Roberts declined, saying that to do so would be "practising discrimination in reverse." Elder agreed. "If I was offered a special invitation I wouldn't accept it," he said. "I'll make it on my own." He called his seven-under-par effort on the 7,080-yard Lake-wood Country Club course "my most solid round of the year." He missed only one fairway and one green and didn't make a bogey as he established a two-stroke lead over Bert Yancey and young Tom Watson, tied at 67. George Knudson and Ben Kern, both of Toronto, had 72s Thursday and were well down in the field after 18 holes. Nicklaus solved some of Iiis recent problems, shot a 68 and was. tied with Babe Hiskey. The group at 69 included Lou Graham, Tommy Aaron, Larry and Jim Ahern.

In the only other game, Philadelphia Flyers nailed down a playoff berth in the West by swamping Vancouver Canucks 9-0 and climbing into a share of second place with Minnesota. The Flyers, however, have six games remaining-two more than the North Stars. In tonight's only scheduled game, Toronto Maple Leafs visit Oakland's California Golden Seals. Veteran John Bucyk's two goals in the second period, his 38tth and 39th of the season, proved the decisive scores for Boston although Ken Hodge wrapped -it up' with his 36th midway through the third period. OUR REACHES MILESTONE Bobby Orr's 24th goal of the year, ait 8:48 of the opening period that gave Boston a 2-1 lead, was the young defen-ceman's 600th career point. He assisted on Bucyk's first goal. The game was delayed early in the middle period when Boston rookie Fred O'Donnell and defenceman Dennis O'Brien- exchanged blows. The incident sparked a series of minor skirmishes through the remainder of the game as the Bruins continued to press for second in the East which would PHILADELPHIA f VANCOUVER 0 First Period - 1.

Ken Lang, with three goals, Mark Rowe with two and Mike Pietramala with a single replied for the Nuggets. In Bantam A Randy Syrenne scored in the first period for the Berjains Raiders and Kevin House in the second for the Bantam A All-Stars as the two clubs played to a 1-1 deadlock, The Bruins posted a hard-fouglit 5-4 victory over the Mus tangs in sudden-death overtime and took a one-game lead in Bantam "B" playoff action Tuesday night. Craig Robinson and Ross Mitchell tallied a pair of markers for I he Bruins while Brad Lowe added a single. Robinson's second goal of the night proved to be the winner, Ted Slusar, Bill Caswell, Jer ry Mikla and Dave Stinson notched solo markers for the Mustangs, who trailed 1-0 after the first period and 4-2 after the second. Rod Olshaski rifled in a pair of goals and earned the North Stars to a 5-1 decision over the Royals in Midget action Thursday night. Barry Peterson', Dan Burg-wall and David Bourassa added singles in the win while Ed Yalowega replied for the Royals. In another Midget contest, D.

The Rangers, meanwhile, went through a scoreless first period at Atlanta and were behind 1-0 on Keith McCreary'i 20th score of the year early in the middle session. Meanwhile in the WHA the Winnipeg Jets needed Norm Beaudin's goal with just 16 seconds left in regulation time Thursday night to salvage a 1-1 tie with Alberta Oilers. But the one point they picked up nailed down first place in the World Hockey Association'! Western Division. The Jets, who have four games remaining, could con-ceivably lose their remaining four games while Houston Aeros-10 points back-win their five, and still take the pennant by virtue of a better record between the two clubs this season. The Jets have beaten Houston six times in their eight meetings. Elsewhere Thursday, Ottawa Nationals broke New England W h a 1 e r s's eight-game win streak, winning 4-2 in the Canadian capital, and Minnesota Fighting Saints nipped Chicago Cougars 2-1 on Bobby MacMil-lan's goal with three seconds remaining in sudden-death overtime.

The two fighters would share $10 million - the most lucrative purse in boxing history. Lawyer Robert Arum said a group offering $10 million had spoken with him and set out the terms. "Everything appears reasonable to me. This is a bona fide offer," he added. Earlier, in London, promoter Jack Solomons said he was "very confident" the two fighters would face each other in London later this year. Arum said the location of the fight was "not up to me, but the people who are putting up the money." Foreman and his manager, Dick Sadler, are currently m London, and Solomons said: "We discussed the fight for more than four hours last night and a couple of more hours today and they were very keen on any proposition." 1 Arum said the promoters, whose "only condition" was that they remain anonymous until the contract is signed, would be in touch with Sadler when he returns to the United States next week. Last Sunday, Arum said he had been informed that For-man's manager had already received a $10^million offer. But, he said Thursday, the anonymous group "told me they haven't been in touch with Sadler yet." "Unless there are two groups offering $10 million," he suggested. Under the terms of contract proposed by Arum's group, each fighter would receive $5 million. GLASS OUR INSTALLATION EXPERTS CAN LOOK AFTER EVERY REQUIREMENT.
