Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Chalmers scores twice as locals fight off elimination Davidson backstops Sugar Kings to first win By PAT SULLIVAN HwaM Sports Writer TABER - "All we can do is play them one at a time." It wu a jubilant John Chapman In the Lethbridge Sugar Kings' dressing room Thursday evening after his club had just edged Red Deer Rustlers 54 in the fourth game of a best-of-seven Alberta Junior Hockey League final. Sugar Kings had been trailing 3-0 heading into Thursday's game. "We just have too good1 a hockey dub to lose four straight to anyone," said Chapman. Kings had tost S-l and 3-2 in Red Deer over the weekend and then dropped a narrow 2-1 decision Wednesday night in Taber. The fifth game is scheduled for Red Deer Sunday afternoon with a sixth game, if needed, back in Taber next Wednesday at 8:30 at the Civic Centre. A seventh game would be played in Red Deer a week today. They pushed the walls of the Civic Centre back another step or two Thursday as a bappy, noisy combination of Lethbridge and Taber people filled the Civic entre ana made their presence felt. Chapman made a complete trip around the dressing room shaking every hand in congratulations. "That was some hockey game guys," the coach said. In earning their first win of the series the Kings led 4-2 going into the final after the two clubs finished the first period deadlocked 1-1. Len Chalmers sparked the Kings with two goals. Solo markers went to Randy An-dreachuk, Archie McLennan and Dave George. Terry Pearn, Dave Andru-chiw, Dennis Resch and Mickey Girard shared in the Red Deer scoring. Chalmers opened the scoring at 3:34 of the first period on the first snot on Dale Henwood in the Red Deer net. The Rustlers' goalie didn't make Kings close in on Penguins Drouin moves his first save until 10:58 had expired in the first stanza. Pearn deadlocked the score at 16:08 from a scramble in front of the Lethbridge net. John Davidson, Kings' netminder, made two stops but was flat on his stomach as the goal went in. Kings put together their best scoring period of the series in the middle 20 minutes as George, Andreachuk and Chalmers gave them a 4-1 lead before Andruchiw scored for Red Deer. Resch narrowed the gap to ahead of Perrault By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jude Drouin tied Danny Grant's National Hockey League points record for rookies Thursday nigbt-�nd all with Grant's help. The 22-year-o3d Drouin col- lected an assist on a goal by Grant before Grant set up the rookie centre for Minnesota North Stars' second goal in a 2-2 tie with Philadelphia Flyers. The scoring gave Drouin his 15th goal and 50th assist to match Grant's rookie output of 65 points in the 1968-69 season. Grant set that record with 34 goals and 31 assists.

Grant's 34 rookie goals, which had matched the record set by Nels Stewart of Montreal Maroons in 1925-26, has since been surpassed by Buffalo Sabres' Gil Perreault. PERRAULT ONE BACK But Perreault, who earlier had been considered the most likely first-year-man to catch Grant's points record as well, now is one point behind Drouin with 35 goals and 29 assists. Drouin, a native of Mont-Louis, Que., who played a total of 12 games in two previous seasons with Montreal Canadiens, ranks with Perreault and New York Rangers goalie Gilles Vil Iemure as top contenders for the Calder Trophy. Goals by Jimmy Johnson and Larry Hillman salvaged the tie for the Flyers who padded then-lead over fifth-place Pittsburgh Penguins to seven points. That dimmed the Penguins' hopes of catching the Flyers for the final playoff spot in the West Division. The Flyers could all but snuff out the hope Sunday when the two clubs meet head-on at Philadelphia. At Detroit, Alex Delvecchio, Red Berenson and Mickey Red mond all reached the 20-goal mark for the season in the last 22 minutes of play to overcome 3-1 Vancouver lead. The victory halted Detroit's losing streak at five games and held off the Canucks who could have dumped the Red Wings into last place in the East Division had the decision been reversed. Tins Ecclestone opened the scoring for Detroit before Mike Oorrigan, Ted Taylor and Murray Hall put the Canucks into their short-lived lead. ULLMAN SCORES 33RD Norm UUman's 33rd goal of the season early in the third period at Los Angeles pulled Toronto into a 2-2 tie but Mike Byers and Bob Berry, each with his second goal of the night, quickly put the Kings back in front.

Heard holds lead 4-3 with a goal a* 4:17 of the final period but McLennan notched the winner at 5:48 before Girard dosed out the scoring. Red Deer coach AH Oedmsn pulled Henwood with1 3:00 remaining in the game but to no avail. The Sugar King* were not to be denied their win. Davidson was brilliant for the Sugar Kings as he came up with 39 saves as compared to just 16 for Henwood. The lanky netminder came up with 11 stops in the final period as compared to only two for Henwood as the Rustier* attempted to tie the score. Davidson's biggest save of the night came with less than a minute left in the game and with the Rustlers pressing with an extra attacker. A Mueline shot had Davidson going to his right but the puck was deflected. He somehow got his left leg on the puck and made the save. "It jusj; caught the inside, of my left pad," said a smiling Davidson, "I just got enough of it to stop it." Rustlers, with a 3-0 cushion, pulled all the stops to end the series in four games. Their enthusiasm earned them 13 of 22 minor penalties called in the game. "We have to win twice in Red Deer," said Chapman, "but this thing is far from over." Garry Paskuski, who picked up four assists in the encounter, kept saying, "it's all uphill guys, but we can do it." Kings will have to do it in Red Deer if they want to advance further on the playoff trail. "We're still down 3-1," added Chapman, "but did you notice we finally got some breaks?
