Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE tETHBRiDGE HERALD Monday, May 4, 1970 Bowman Tries To Shadow_0rr, Plante Taken To Hospital Bucyk Leads The Way As Bruins Open With Win ST. LOUIS (CP) Johnny Bucyk and others on tiie Boston Bruins' forward lines could enjoy some easy scoring in the Stanley Cup finals as long as team-mate Bobby On- can con- tinue to attract a live shadow. In the first game of the besl- o f -s e v e n series Sunday, St. Lcuis Blues' coach Scotty Bow- man sent his left wingers to fol- low the high-scoring Boston clef- enceman and stop his often- spectacular rushes. "When Uicy shadow Bobby, it takes one of their forwards out of the game, as far as I'm con- said Bucyk after he scored three goals to lead the Bruins to a 6-1 victory. Bowman switched Jim Rob- erts, normally a right winger or right defenceraan, to left wing where he was the most effective in sticking with Orr, who works at right defence. When Roberts was off the ice, left wingers Tim Ecclestone and Terry Crisp kept an eye on Orr but stayed hang of a closer to the play. Roberts did a jcb." said Bowman. "The others didn't do so well. Roberts is the best at it because he wants to do it." But while Orr was being watched, he dumped the puck out to his forwards, who had one less opposing forward to face in their attack. And On- said with indifference: "I could have had lunch out no bolher at all.' The teams meet again here HIT BY DISC St. louis Blues' goalie Jacques Plante 1 fell to the ice Sunday afternoon after being hit in the fore- head by a flying puck in the second period of the St. Louis- Boston Stanley Cgp game. Team Captain A! Arbour moves in to help. Plante was taken to a hospital where he was later reported in satisfactory condition.

In fact, Lehmann was follow- ing his game hunt- not the progress of Dust Commander when the colt won the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland nine days before the Derby.

(CP) Spokane Jets are one win away 'rom the Allan Cup senior hockey champjonship today after splitting two weekend games with Orillia Terriers. The Jets, stung 6-2 Saturday by the Terriers, tightened their defence Sunday night and scored a 2-1 victory while allow- ing only 24 shots on goaltender Seth Martin. Spokane leads the best-of- seven series 3-2 and could be- come the first American team to win the title Tuesday night. If the seventh game is needed, it will be played here Wednesday night. Ron Huston, who has a goal a game in the series, and Gordon Tur'lik scored for the Jets Sun- day. Rick McClocklin was the only Orillia player to crack the tough Spokane defence and beat Mar- tin. The Terriers were forced to use backup goaltender Sonny Pennington for the second time in the series when Gerry Mc- Namara was thrown out of the game along with three other players following a first-period brawl. It started when Spokane def- enceman Tom Hodges mixed it up with Peter Speyer and ended when McNamara, Grant Moore of the Terriers and Ken Gustaf- son and Dave Toner of the Jets were given game misconducts. The Jets had a 2-0 lead snapped late in the second pe- riod when McClocklin took ad- vantage of one of the few defen- sive lapses Spokane had and fired a shot over Martin's left shoulder. Martin shook off an arm in- jury early in the scoreless third period to stop the Terriers. Saturday, three power-play goals killed the Jets before fans.

(AP) Gary Cowan's brilliant combi- nation of power and finesse ov- ercame the determination of Dale Morey and carried the Ca- nadian to a 5 and 4 victory Sat- urday in the finals of the North and South amateur golf tourna- ment. The 31-y e a r -o 1 d Kitchener, Ont, insurance man became the first non-U.S. player to win the 70-year-old tournament as he knocked six strokes from par with booming tee shots and strong putting over the yard No. 2 course of the Pine- hurst Country Club. Cowan started with a flurry of birdies, shooting the first 10 holes in five under par for a three-up lead. Morey had to sink three cru- cial putts to stay that close.

Still, Roberts managed the only St. Louis gcai he and Bill McCreary broke into the Boston zone with Orr the only defender back. Orr followed McCreary as he carried the puck in and Roberts took the pass to fire a quick shot past Boston goalie Gerry Cheevers. The Blues outshot the Bruins 11-9 in the first period, but Bucyk got the first goal with just 15 seconds left when he fired a screened shot from di- rectly in front of goaltender Jacques Plante. Roberts' goal tied the game early in the second period, but Bucyk scored Hie winner less than four minutes later when he parked at the corner of the net and converted a quick pass from Johnny McKenzie. Bucyk's third goal in the third period along with one each from Wayne Carleton, Derek Sander- son and Phil Esposito completed the rout. KNOCKED OUT The Blues suffered a hard blow early in the second period when Plante was knocked un- conscious by a slapshot from the point by Fred Stanfield. The 41-year-old goalie lay prone on the ice for about three minutes before being helped to his feet by his team-mates. His face mask was cracked by the deflected shot but it kept him from suffering any laceration. He was taken to hospital where he was later listed as "satisfactory." Doctors said x- ray results were not immedi- ately available. He was kept overnight for observation. The Blues also lost defence- man Barclay Plager in the third period after he suffered bruised ribs. He sat out the rest of the game and it was not immedi- ately known if he would be in actjon Tuesday. After the fans gave Piante a standing ovation on his way to tile dressing room, rookie Ernie Wakely took over in the St. Louis nets with left in the second period. Plante had made 13 saves to that point but Wakely faced 21 more Boston drives as the Bruins outshot the Blues 35-29 throughout the game. WORKED HARD Cheevers worked hard stop- ping the 28 shots to win the praise of coach Harry Sinden, who complained the Blues placed "too much emphasis" on "Heck, we've got a goaltender said Sinden, "with a little help from a crossbar and a post.' The Blues, who had seven power-play opportunities in the game, always posed a threat to Cheevers but several of their shots went wide or bounced off the goalposts. Cheevers was particularly sharp in stopping centre Hed Berenson. "He's the most said Cheevers. "I always look for him." Sanderson proved he can be just as dangerous when he barged through the Blues' def- ence for a clean breakaway while Boston defenceman Don Awrey was in the penalty box. Sanderson skated straight in on Wakely and fired a quick shot into the top of the net before the goalie made a move. Orr's assist on the goal gave him a total of 16 points to tie the record of most points by a defenceman in one playoff sea- sou set by Tim Hoiion, then with Toronto Maple Leafs in 1962. TIED RECORD Esposito's goal late in the game, which came after he skated easily around defence- man Noel Picard, gave him a total of 12 for the playoffs to tie the record set by Maurice (Rocket) Richard of Montreal Canadiens in 1944 and tied by Jean Beh'veau of Montreal in 1956. And Esposito's assist on Bu- cyk's second goal gave him nine for a total of 21 points to tie tlie record set by Stan Mikila of Chicago Black Hawks in 1962. The brawling that marred the Bruins' quarter-final series with New York Rangers and the Blues' semi final with Pitts- burgh Penguins did not appear in Sunday's game. Only Boston's Wayne Cash- man and Picard of the Blues en- gaged in a brief shoving inci- dent in the first period, and both got major penalties for a minor show of fisticuffs in the second period. Tuesday's faceoff time is S p.m. MST with the game tele- vised nationally by the CBC. The teams then move to Bos- ton for the third and fourth games Thursday and S'unday. BOSTON ST.
