Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, May 3, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIC 7 groins Tkaczuk certain penalty was a bad call _____ _r ..r-r-icf in 11 nnst-SPi By IAN Macl.AINK BOSTON (CP) New York players differed Tuesday night as to whether the penalty was good or had, but Hie outcome left the Hangers down 2-0 In games in their Stanley Cup final with Boston Bruins. Walt Tkaczuk, who took the tripping penally, said it was a bad call. Team-mate Jim Neil- son thought the strategy Rood because he had lost the puck along the boards and Boston's Phil Esposilo had clear sailing to the New York goal before Tkaczuk hauled him down. "The score was l-l so he bad to take a said N e 11 s o n. The Bruins took advantage of the call on the Ranger centre, which gave them a two-man ad- vantage, to nail down a 2-1 vic- tory. The series now shifts to New York for the next two games, Thursday night at p.m. MDT and Sunday afternoon at 12 noon MDT. Tkaczuk's penalty came with 10 seconds left in Bruce Mac- Grogor's penalty for upsetting John McKcnzie. The Bruins took only seven seconds tr> count the winner. Ken Hodge, who rifled three goals in Boston's 6-5 victory Sunday, slipped Mike Walton's passoul into the corner of the playoff assist in u post-season net under Gilles Villemure's games this year. The stick. Boston's earlier goal, in the first period, also came on the power play when Bruin defence- man Bobby Orr set up Johnny Bucyk. New York's Gary Doak was off for high-sticking Espos- ito. Bucyk just snapped Orr's pass by Vil'lemure, giving the young defenceman record 17th WINNING GOAL New York Rongers' goalie Gilles Villemure watches as puck goes past him on a shot by Boston Bruins' Ken Hodge (8) in the third period Tuesday night The goal gave the Bruins a 2-1 win and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final.

"I've never been real high on girl jockeys, but she han- dles this horse better than anybody said trainer Frank Cark'n, who heads the syndicate that owns the colt. Carlin said he most proba- bly would withdraw from the Derby if the track is anything but fast for the classic. Mrs. Bacon said she and her husband had thought of fighting the racing rule that forbids them to ride in the same race while married, "but it was just easier to get a divorce." "The rule is unconstitu tional, (here's no doubt about that, and if somebody fought it in the courts, they probably could get it thrown she said. It is basically the same which defeated Orillia, Ont., in six games two years ago. The Jets compiled a 33-13-2 record in breezing to the WIHL title this year, seven of the losses and the ties coming in 22 games after Jan. 1 when there was little for the Jets to get excited about and a red-hot scramble for second which brought out the best in the op- position. By the time the playoffs roll- ed around, the Jets had regain- ed their early-season effective- ness and WOB 17 of 20 although one win in the first round of the WIHL Savage Cup final was later reversed in on off-ice protest. The Jets needed the maxi- slandard of 16 assists was set last year by Jean Beliveau of Montreal Canadiens in play- off games and equalled by Orr last Sunday. The New York goal, by Hod Gilbert, came with both sides at full strength in the second pe- riod. "He (Esposito) was already alfway claimed Tkac- uk. "My stick hit him and I got ailed for it. "Maybe I did trip him, but in my mind I didn't." It was no trip in the mind of {anger coach Emile Francis ei- tier.

"Our club's ii iretty good condition. "All we have to do now is get ome scoring into it." His senti- ments were echoed by Neilson. "If we keep playing that good something's got to said the Ranger defenceman. Boston coach Tom Johnson agreed the Rangers had given il a good shot, but the closeness o .he first two games "shouldn' hurt us" in New York. He felt Esposito had a reasoi lo be upset by the fact "he ha been hooked and bothered" b the Rangers through the tw games. The Boston centre and Tkac- zuk had two close-in sessions in the third period but both play- ers avoided drawing penalties. WALTON SHINES Walton's play, particularly in the third period, caught John- son's eye. The young winger was a persistent fore-checker in the New York end and was in- strumental in setting up the Boston winner. "Great play said Johnson of the move by Walton who took Esposito's fa- ceoff and skated around de- fenceman Rod Selling to fake a move behind the Ranger goal. But instead of going beliind the goal, Walton passed out to Hodge, who eluded Neilson long enough to flip the puck under Villemure's stick side into the corner of the net. Villemure faced a 25-shot Bos- ton attack while the Rangers had 28 drives at Bruin goalie Ed Johnston.

This could be the under- statement of the year in view of recent Canuck defections to the proposed World Hockey League. Poile then amended his state- ment, saying Laycoe will not be just in charge of player de- velopment, but will "work very close to me in all phases of management."
