Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuelduy, May J, I97S WE IFTHBRIDGH HERAID 9 Ratette, Fairbairn appear ready to play Francis denies accusing Bailey of cheap shot BOSTON (CP) Emile Fran- cis admitted Monday in a tele- phone interview from New York that both Jean Ratelle and Bill Fairbairn were hurting, but de- nied he had accused Boston's Garnet Bailey of knocking Ron Stewart out of the Stanley Cup playoffs with an elbow smash that would do justice to profes- sional wrestling. "I know Bailey hit Stewart with his elbow, but I didn't say it was said Francis, New York's general manager- coach. "1 did say he hit him with an elbow. You and I both know it wasn't a program." Bailey delivered the shot that sent (he Hanger veteran reeling in the second period, then later fired the goal that sent New York spinning to a 6-5 loss as the Bruins took the opener in the b e s t -o f -s e v e n National Hockey League final. Second game in the series goes tonight at p.m. MDT. "No, Ron won't said Francis. "Ho was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital and was gonna have h i s jaw wired this morning. "He'll return to New York with us after the game.'"

But Derby may yet have to surrender the soccer title to ei- ther Liverpool or Leeds United, which Monday beat Chelsea 2-0 at home. Derby, which has finished its league campaign, has 58 points, one more than Leeds and two more than Liverpool. Both clubs still have one match to play. They have better goal averages than Derby, so both will pass the current leader if they should finish even on points with Derby. Leeds, which is in the final the English FA Cup, has a great chance of notching the double. They need only one point from their final game, away to Wol- verhampton Wanderers May 8, to take the championship. Liverpool can only finish first if it wins on champions Arsenal's ground (he same day and in addition Leeds loses to Wolverhampton. Derby ended a Liverpool mil of IS matches wilhout defeat with a single goal scored by John McGovem. In Ihe 74th minute, hundreds of spectators cascaded onlo Hie pitch. Nine persons were taken to hospital but none of the cas- ualties was seriously injured.

"We will not go into Davidson said in a statement. "There is no playing facility available there." Ten teams posted performance bonds at a WHA meeting in Chicago April 15. These were Edmonton, Winni- peg, Ottawa, Quebec, Los Ange- les, Chicago, Houston, Minne- sota, New England and New York. TALK TO OTHERS "We are also actively talkin, wilh other groups from Phila- delphia and Salt Lake City and some cities that have applied for National Hockey League Davidson said. He said he could not divulge the names of the groups now but "we will have 12 teams." adding that the problem now is to keep below 12. Davidson also said a new ownership group in Calgary has been in contact wilh the WHA and discussions are being held relative to keeping a team in that city. Scolty Munro, one of the origi- nal backers of the Calpary fran- chise and a co-owner of Calgary Centennials in the Western Can- ada Hockey League, announced three weeks ago he was with- drawing because "junior hockey is my life." He had first sought the WHA entry with Bob Brownridge, an oilman, who became seriously ill and withdrew several months ago. Two other Boswell and Orest also withdrew last month. Hershick said the Calgary entry was "under-financed from the beginning" and added he was convinced the entry would never get off the ground. McCARTAN SIGNS Meanwhile, Minnesota Fight- ing Saints announced two sign- ings Antonovich of the University of Minnesota and Jack McCartan, 35. former Minnesota graduate who was the goalie on the I960 U.S. Olympic team that defeated Russia for a gold medal. McCartan later played in 12 games for New York Rangers of the NHL during the 1959-60 and 1960-01 seasons. He has played for San Diego Gulls in the West- ern Hockey League for the last 10 years. In Montreal, Morden Lazarus, the lawyer for Pete Mahovlich, said Monday the Canadiens' left winger is "under a lot of pres- sure" to sign with the Fighting Saints. Lazarus said the team is of- fering Mahovlich "a lot of money" and the left winger is in a "very pensive mood."

Francis, however, had n good medical report on Ratelle and Fairbairn. Ratelle, coming off a broken ankle, played his first game in nearly two months Sunday and Fairbairn was tripped up by Boston's Johnny Bucyk. lie suf- fered a knee injury in the colli- sion. "Billy worked out for an hour this morning and there was no said the Ranger coach. "As for Jean, there's no change planned for him. Til continue to use Bobby Rousseau on Jean's line with Vic (Hadfield) and Rod Gilbert. He's been going pretty good. Jean is skating well so I'll use him a little more. "He's not suffering any 111 ef- fects and has no problem skat- ing. But unless I go with four lines, I don't think he's ready for regular shift." LINEUP NOT SET The Cat, as Francis is known, said he hadn't settled on what realignment Stewart's injury would force him into for the second game. "I might dress six defence- men instead of 12 forwards and still have enough for four Francis said, adding: "You know, I can always use Rod Seiling as a forward." Francis would not rap lu's vet- eran goallender, Ed Giacomin, for getting pulled out of position on Bailey's game-winner with left in the game. "Eddie made the right move tried to stick-check the puck off Bailey's said Francis. "But what surprised me was the fact that Bailey was even able to get around in front of the net. "I thought Brad Park had skated him out of position. Then suddenly he's in front of the net. "Eddie went down on one knee to poke-check him and suddenly the puck went up his stick into the net." DOESN'T NAME GOALIE Despite his forebearance, Francis continued his game-to- game policy of naming his starting netminder "on the day of tbe game." Giacomin shared the chores with Gilles Villemure during the season and when Giacomin was injured in the first game of the semi-fir.als with Chicago Black Hawks Villemure moved in to sweep three more from tbe Hawks. Boston coach Tom Johnson has a different approach. "I like to let them (goalies) know a day ahead of time to let them prepare for the saiti Jolinson. Veteran Ed Johnston is schd' uled to start tonight's game, in a continuing Boston policy to al- ternate don't call it alternating, just using them every other says John- son. "They're both playing real well, so it doesn't matter who 1 start." Johnston has a 1.75 goal-a- gainst average, allowing only seven goals in four playoff games while Gerry Cheevers has let in 16 shots in six games for a 2.64 average.
