Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 tETHBRIDGt' HERA5.D Soturdoy, May 3, 1973 Bowman plans change in strategy if need be Habs didn't open up quickly enough CHICAGO (CP) Coach Scotty Bowman is having some second thoughts about the hockey game his Montreal Ca- nadians lost Thursday which could an influence on his future strategy. The Canadiens lend Chicago Black Hawks two games to one in tha best-of-seven Stanley Cup finals the fourth game here Sunday afternoon. The Canadiens could had a 3-0 lead in games, says Bowman, if they had opened up earlier. '1 think if we had opened up when we were down 5-1 in the second period we might have made Bowman said Friday, "We didn't decide to have ev- eryone attack until the third pe- j riod Then almost pulled it i put. We missed some good scor- 1 ing opportunities." The Canadiens rebounded from a five-goal deficit and SPORT ANDY CAPP RIGHT ON TARGET FOR 1975 pulled to within one before giv- ing up a 74 loss after two empty-net goals by the Hawks. But should Chicago manage to mount another such com- manding lead in Sundays' game, they can look for Mon- treal to open up earlier. If, how- ever, the lead is only one or two goals, Bowman may still hold a tight rein. "If it had been closer, we'd have played it the Montreal coach said. "But be- cause we were down four goals going into the last period, it was obvious we had to open up." Hurts worry Kelley, Whalers enjoy edge MNKO1 SLEEP P COLLECTORS.' MUST VOUAVE ACCOUNTS WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT STORE'S Crampton holds two stroke lead HOUSTON (AP) Bruce Crampton, one of the dominant on the lour this season, swept into a two-stroke lead Friday v.hcn he fired a six-un- der-par 66 in the second round of the Houston open golf tournament. The veteran Crampton, win- ner of two titles and more than SlOO.OOO this season, got through his round without a bogey as he posted a 35-hole total of 138, six under par. The 37-year-old Australian held a two-stroke advantage over Lanny Wadkins, amateur Ben Crenshaw and Rick Masse- ngalc, tied at 140 going into the last two rounds of this chase for a first prize. PROPERTY AND RENTAL MANAGER WISHES TO LOCATE IN THE CITY Married man. 3 years di- versified property manage- ment experience. DIAL 286-4719 CALGARY ARER 6 P.M. Wadkins, winner of the Byron Nelson Classic last Sunday, had a 69. Crenshaw, a 21-year-old University of Texas student, had a 71 and said, "I could have shot a lot better." Massengale, a non-winning tour regular for the last four years, vaulted into contention with a 68. corny, ELDER AT 141 The group at 141, three under par and three behind Crampton, included former Masters cham- pion Charles Coody, Dave Stockton, Lee Elder, Bobby Mit- chell and Bobby Eastwood. Mit- chell had a 63, Stockton 71 and Coody, Elder and Eastwood all had 69s. First-round leader Mike Hill knocked himself out of it when he went to a fat strokes higher than his opening and was well back at 145. "I just made some stupid mistakes and missed all those short putts I made the day be- said Hill, who started his decline with a triple-bogey seven on his eighth hole. Crampton played his usual solid game, birdied two par fives and ran in an 18-foot putt for still another bird, then made his round with some gritty clutch putting coming home.

AND MONTANA BOSTON (CP) New Eng- 1 knd Whalers go into tonight's fourth game of the World Hookey Association finals with a definite advantage over Win- nipeg Jets but coach Jack Kelley admits he is begin- ning to worry about his club's injuries. The Whalers lead the best-of- seven World Trophy final 2-1 j ith the fourth and fifth games in Boston. If the goes be- yond that, the sixth game will be in Toronto and the seventh back in Boston. The Jets have no more home games because the Winnipeg Arena u> not avail- able. "I would have to say the fact we have a one-game edge with (wo home games and three of the last four here if we need them gives us a decided Kelley said Friday. But the New England coach expressed concern for the mounting injuries. Right winger Brit Selby suffered a head in- jury and spent Thursday night in a Winnipeg hospital for ob- servation and it won't be known until late this afternoon if he will be able to play the fourth game. WAIT FOR EXAMINATION "The doctors felt there was no concussion our doctors will examine Brit Saturday and hopefully we'll have him back." Selby went into the boards heavily in the second period Thursday when hit by defen- ceman Steve Cuddie. The Whalers have bean with- out centre Terry Caffery, a 100- pomt man during the regular season, and John Danby since midway through the semi-finals. "If we don't have Brit, we will have only one player left on our most productive Kel- ley said, explaining that the unit of Caffery, Selby and Tom Webster was one of the three highest scoring lines in the WHA with both Caffery and Webster collecting more than 100 points. "It would be a lough loss and mean we'd have to go with a Guy Smith, who has played in only one playoff game and was used only sparingly during the season WEBSTER STILL GOING Webster, the line's only re- maining healthy forward is the club's leading scorer during the season with 103 points and in the playoffs with 22 points but is also hurting. He hurt his el- bow Thursday but is a definite starter. "We're still in pretty good shape but we're not taking any- thing for said Kelley. The Whalers have not lost a home game to the Jets and have been beaten only twice in nine meetings but Hull, Winni- peg's playing-coach, said Thurs- day's victory could be the key. "The guys know now that they can beat this club if they put then- minds to it and really work.'' Both clubs took the day off Friday and for some of the Win- nipeg veterans, it was a wel- come rest. The Jets we're obviously tiring in the third period Thursday, a result of the strong fore- checking and hard-hitting pat- tern of play in that game. Hull completely changed his club's strategy for the third game, turning to the heavy hit- ting with the formation of a new line of Garth Rizzuto, Brian Cadle and John Shmyr and is expected to remain with the ssme line-up tonight. Kelley isn't worried about that, though, saying Ottawa Na- tionals tried it against the Wha- lers in the quarter-finals and Cleveland Crusaders played that way in all five semi-final contests. "That style of play usually wakes us up and makes us play better. It doesn't hurt us and won't take anything away from us. We've been effective against it all season."

GETS BIG CONTRACT PHILADELPHIA (AP) Doug Collins, the National Bas- ketball Associations' No. 1 draft choice, as signed Friday to a reported million-plus con- tract by Philadelphia '76ers. Tne 6-fcot-6 guard, also drafted by New York Nets in the Amer- ican Basketball Association, was given a multi-year pact. Chicago coach Billy Reay suggested there might have been a letdown with his players sitting on a five-goal cushion and that the free-wheeling Mon- trealers took his players by sur- prise. "They just threw caution to the the Chicago coach said. "It worked for them in the first game (an 8-3 Montreal vic- tory) and again Thursday. "Fortunately we didn't fold all together. But it could just as easily work against them.'' DRYDEN WAS KEY Bowman agreed, saying goal- tender Ken Dryden made sev- eral key saves in the third pe- riod as the Hawks roared Li with two-on-one and three-on- two breaks as ths Canadiens ig- nored their earlier pattern of defensive play. "Ken had to make some big saves in that Bowman said, ''but if we were going to make a game of it, this was the way we had to play." In his second year with Cana- diens, runaway East Division champions this season with only 10 losses in the 78-garne sched- ule, Bowman wasn't displeassd with his club's last-period per- formance. "But we didn't win. It doesn't make any difference whether it was by one goal or four. It still goes into the record as a loss." Jacques Laperierre, whose nose was broken in the first game of the final series, is ex- pected to return to the Cana- diens lineup for Tuesday's fifth game of the series at Montreal. "Jacques will be skating and seeing a doctor during the Bowman said. "Bu I expect he'll get an okay to play." MAGNUSON EAGER Not so fortunate is Chicago defencemae Keith Magnuson whose jaw was shattered in the Hawks' semi-final round with New York Rangers. "We'll let the doctor look at it during the Reaj said. "He's real eager, but I don't think he's ready to play." He said the Hawks miss Mag- rruson's experience at the blue- line, but, "as I said before, we can't take any chances of him getting hit there again." Stan Mikita and Doug Jarrett the more seriously injured Chi- cago Regulars who played key roles in Thursday's victory, vis- ited the Chicago Medical Clinic Friday and were reported ready to continue in the series. STILL SORE Mikita, nursing a cut on the middle finger cf his right hand, said the finger was still swollen and sore. Jarrett's broken rib was ob- viously slowing his play in the game but h e took a regular shift anchoring rookie Phil Rus- sell, allowing Reay to regroup his front-line forces. John Marks, another first- year player, was forced to drop back o n defence with Russell when the veteran Jarrett was sidelined early in the second contest at Montreal, won by the Canadiens 4-1. Mikita also sat out ihat game and Reay was forced to ressurect several third-line combinations to give the forwards adequate rest.

Parker pleased tvitli progress Alberta loop no house league CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Major Baseball League is not a house league any more, says commissioner Russ Parker of Calgary. Parker is enthused because Lethbridge Lakers, a second- year club in the league, have signed a working agreement with San Diego Padres of the National League. Ron Taylor of Toronto, a former major league pitcher, will manage Lethbridge in 1973. "San Diego's talked a long time about putting someone in the area for scouting pur- Parker said in an in- terview. "We expect he (Taylor) will play some, run some schools and scout throughout the province with the hope of find- ing one or two prospects for the San Diego club. "It could be the beginning of a trend. I can definitely say the Kansas City Royals are interested and the Montreal Expos may be forced into it." AUTOMOBILE FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITIES General Motors of Canada Limited has retail franchise opportunities available in tha Province of Alberta and Eastern British Columbia. For further details and discussion, please write Box 58, Lethbridge Herald or phone Calgary, 243-4621 Parker hopes the AMBL will become a major develop- ment league for college play- ers. "The Basin League fa major midwest summer league in the United States) is having problems. One half has already folded, and if that major league money is avail- able, then we'll expand if the economics will allow it." Economics was a problem during the last few years, es- pecialJy with an ill-fated inter- locking experiment with the Northern Saskatchewan Base- ball League. The schedule was too long and complicated, leaving no room for making up frequent rainouts. "Looking at the schedule last year we must have all thought we were playing in Parker said. There will be lots of resched- uling lime in this year's schedule, which opens May 22. The league has been divided into northern and southern di- visions, with Edmonton Ti- gers, Edmonton Block Bros, and Red Deer Elks in the north and Calgary Giants, Calgary Jimmies and Leth- bridge in the south. Each team will play each other team hi division eight tunes and each team in the other division four times in a 28-game schedule that ends July 26. The AMBL champion will go to the National Baseball Congress championship, a 32- team playoff in Wichita, Kan., in mid-August. "Gaining that affiliation had to be the highlight of the win- ter." Parker said. "It's been a great help in recruiting top American ballplayers. "Our intent is to provide baseball fans with the best we can. We are trying to improve the calibre of the league and if that takes more imports, then that's what we'll do." Each franchise now is per- mitted four inmorted nlaven.
