Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID Wednesdoy, Moy 6, 1970. OH YEAH! Opposing views were stressed in a straightforward manner Tuesday by St. Louis Blues' Bob Plager (5) and Don Awrey of the Boston Firuins. Nothing was settled and the two picked up their sticks and skated off. Bruins won the second game of the Stanley Cup final 6-2 for a 2-0 lead in games. Capture Allan Cup Jets Record History SPOKANE, Wash. (CP) Spokane Jets fans streamed on to the ice Tuesday night with a roof-rattling chant of: "We're No. 1, we're No. 1." Jets had just become the firs United States team to win in 62 years of play for the Allan Cup emblematic of Canadian senior hockey supremacy. The Jets, with great goaltend- Ing from Seth Martin, trippec Orfflia Terriers 6-3 in the sixth game Tuesday before a howling crowd of Coach Al Rollins, clutching his third Allan Cup (he was on two winning teams as a goalie) headed for a celebration. Losing coach Ike HUdebrand and his India Posts Net Upset BANGALORE, India (AP) India upset Australia rath a clinching singles victory by Premjit Lall Tuesday and won the Eastern Zone title in the Davis Cup tennis competition. The margin was 3-1, with one match unfinished. The Indians next play the win- ner of the European Zone-B, which is still being contested. Lall, a veteran of the Indian team, defeated Dick Crealy of Australia 8-6, 6-2, 6-2. In the final singles, which could not af- fect the outcome, the match be- tween Ray Huffels of Australia and Jaideep Mukerjea of India was halted by darkness with the score 6-6 in the fifth set. Mukerjea won the first two sets 6-3, 7-5 but Ruffels rallied to win the next two 64, 6-3. It was decided to cancel the match and let the 3-1 score stand. Lall and Mukerjea won the opening singles but the Austral- ians came back to take the dou- bles. crew headed for the airport and home. All games were played here Jets won the opener, 5-2, the second 5-0, lost the next two 5-2 and 6-2, then took a 3-2 hold on the best-of-seven series with a 2-1 win Sunday. Martin was a most matched by Gerry Mc- Namara, the Toronto insurance man in the. Orillia Bets. TERRIERS LED The Terriers built up a 2-0 lead by of the second riod but the Jets tied it in same period and led 5-2 midway through the third, later adding an empty-net goal. Tom HendaR scored twice for the Jets and other goals came from Buddy Bodman, Johr Thompson, Dave Toner and Gord Turlik. Toner scored the winner on a fine pass from Gail Holden. Gary MUlroy, Clare Alexan- der and Al Osborne scored for Orillia, the rags-to-riches team which defeated Victoriaville, Que., Tigers in the Eastern Can- ada final. Spokane, the Western Interna- tional League team that de- feated St. Boniface, Man., in the western final, was in the Allan Cup finals in 1957 but bowed to Whitby, Ont. Bodman was with Jets that rear, as was team captain Tom lodges, who had an assist on Rendall's second goal. Rollins was goaltender with two cham- pion teams, Edmonton in 1948 and Drumheller, Alta., in 1966. Some Spokane players have aken out U.S. citizenship but all came here from Canada. In lollins's three years here, hey've won three league titles, ,hree playoff crowns and now the Allan Cup. The Ontario crew rose hrough intermediate ranks be- ore entering senior hockey four t-ears ago, then fought their way up from the cellar to the iastern title. Millroy converted a power- ilay rebound in the first period for Orillia and Alexander bounced a 35-footer off Martin's pads to give the Terriers their 2-0 lead. Bodman scored from a scramble to reduce the margin then Kendall scooted all the way from his own end and usec Toner as a screen for the tying goal late in the second. Thompson's c e n t r i n g pass caromed into the net off an Oril- lia player at of the thirc and Toner scored the winner less than seven minutes later Rendall faked McNamara to the ice to score his second soon after that. Osborne scored at Ter- riers pulled McNamara with 72 seconds to go but couldn't beat Martin. Turlik skated in for the empty-net goal with two seconds remaining. Martin, with Trail, B.C., Smoke Eaters when they won the 1962 Allan Cup and again when they lost to Montreal in the 1961 final stopped 41 drives. McNamara handled 27.

Pollock Expects MONTREAL (CP) Sai ?ollock, looking for ways to im prove on Montreal Canadiens dismal National Hockey Leagui performance this season, say; some of his captain Jean hi playing elsewhere next season. Pollock, Canadiens genera manager, said in an intenriev Tuesday the biggest improve ment in the team that finishec nit of the NHL playoffs for the irst time'in 22 years, "must be n attitude." "Some of the players who didn't work as hard as they should have are in for a helluva shock this summer." Pollock spoke after meeting centre Beliveau, and indicatec hat even the team captain could be looking for work in the all. "We're not building our club Spending on him." Beliveau, in his 17th season, iad 19 goals and 30 assists after getting off to a slow start anc uffering an ankle injury. Mentioning that many young Jayers are coming up, Pollock aid: 'Jean Beliveau is the mosl nique and most honorable per- on I've come across and basi- ally he will do anything we ask f him. At the same time, an't say Jean is guaranteed a spot on the team next season. "But then, you can't say that ny player is guaranteed lace next season. Despite the shock of missing le playoffs, Pollock wasn't en- irely displeased with the Cana- "iens' showing. "In many ways it was a re- larkable year when you consi- er that our forwards missed a ital of 75 games through inju- he said. "Until the last week of the chedule the Canadiens were ill in the running tor the divi- on title. We wound up only >even points below the best earn in the league and three oals out of the playoffs." M e a nwhile in Fredericton, ight winger Bobby Rousseau the Canadiens said Tues- ay he would think seriously of .tiring if he is involved in a ayer trade this summer. Rousseau, a nine-year veteran iith the Canadiens, said he ex- pected six or eight new faces to e added to the Montreal roster iring the off season and if he involved in trading, he light announce his retirement. second claiming, 3-year-old maidens 5 furlongs.

Willie Mays Is 39 Today MONTREAL (CP) The "say hey kid" is 39 today. Willie Mays, the incompara- ble San Francisco Giants centrefielder, is celebrating his birthday while the Giants are in for a three-game series with Montreal Expos. The 16-time all-star in base- jail's National League, proba- )ly will spend today as he does eveiy other. "I don't have anything special ilanned for today. I'll just do ,he things I normally do on the day of a game." After 19 years in the National jeague with the Giants, Mays still would like to play every day, and Giants manager Clyde Cing added: "I'd like to use lim every day but don't forget at 39 he's file oldest active ilayer in the majors, excluding litchers. He's played a lot of james for us already this year, ncluding a doubleheader last veekend." Mays is in excellent condition ays King. "Last Sunday against Phila- lelphia, Willie scored from first jase on Willie McCovey's bunt. Mays joined the Giants in 1951 vhile they were still playing in Hew York. In his rookie season e batted .274 rath 20 home uns and 68 runs batted in. His fetime batting mark going into his season was .283. He has 600 ome he has driven in 712 runs. Goalie Gerry Cheevers, despite the light work load, made sev- eral big saves for the Bruins. "We had the goaling and tire defence and were generally staying away from bad penal- said Sinden. "I'll be dis- appointed if we lose the next game. "We've now got eight straight wins, we didn't do that all year." The eighth consecutive win tied the record in one playoff year first set by Montreal Cana- diens in the 1944 series. Centre Phil Esposito and def- enceman Bobby Orr each broke a playoff scoring record with the assists they picked up on the Bruins first goal of the night by Fred Stanfield. The assist gave Esposito 22 points to break the record of most points by any player set in 1962 by Stan Mikita of Chicago Black Hawks. Esposito later picked up an assist on the Bruins' fourth goal. with another assist later on Eddie Westfall's second goal of the night, pushed his scoring total to 18 points, breaking Tim Horton's 1D62 record for def- encemen of 16 points. Blues coach Scotty Bowman had assigned Jim Roberts and other left wingers to shadow Orr in Sunday's game, but Tuesday night Roberts stayed close to Orr for only two shifts in the first period, which ended with the Bruins leading 3-0. "After that, it didn't matter Bowman said after ;he game. "I would say they were about ;wice as good as us tonight. We laven't got it, let's face it. "They were playing soundly ANDY CAPP 'QIVABOUTSOMF rl ONLY HALF AN HOUR FOR OWr BLAME ME, MATE) SWOP STEWARD, we're not checking very well, said Bowman. TURK GETS TWO Derek Sanderson scored twice along with Westfall and veteran eft-winger Johnny Bucyk and Itanfield got the single goals. Ten? Gray and Frank St. Marseille scored for the Blues. St. Marseille's goal came with i o s I o n right-winger Johnny VIcKenzie in the penalty box to jive the Blues a total of 17 pow- er-play goals in the playoffs. The Boston power play got its ,3th of the playoffs on Sander- son's first goal midway through :he second period. Rookie goalie Ernie Wakely ooked shaky in the St. Louis nets and one of his biggest mis- akes of the night came on Sanderson's second goal early in the third period; Wakely made a glove save on ne shot and dropped to his .nees with Sanderson standing ver him. The goalie fumbled le puck and Sanderson wasted o time knocking it into the net. Centre Red Berenson was one f the few Blues who had good coring chances, but just as in he first game, he failed to fin- sh off his plays. There were five minutes re- maining in the game when ucyk wrapped up the scoring nd many of the record crowd fans started leaving. OSTON i ST. LOUIS 2 First Boston, Stanfield i Orr, Esposito) 2.

Teeder Kennedy and Rocket Richard were still two years away from the Na- tional Hockey League. Gerry Cheevers was one year old. It was last time Bos- ton Bruins won the Stanley Cup. Phil R i z 2 u t o was being g.-oomed as shortstop for the and the Tigers figured they had a 20-game winner in Schoolboy Rowe. Joe Louis was heavyweight boxing champion and while Ben Hogan hadn't quite made it in golf, Byron Nelson finished sec- ond in the Masters. Milk went up to 12 cents a quart and ginger beer sold for five cents a bottle. Jack Benny and Baby Snooks ruled on radio and Cary Grant was romancing Irene Dunn on the screen. Dit Clapper was the mainstay of the Bruins' defence. Johnny Mowers was three years away from yielding his job in goal with Detroit to young Harry Lumley. Chuck Rayner was a rookie with New York Rangers. Bill Durnan was a promising goalie with Montreal's junior Royals. Saskatoon Quakers were touting young winger Harry Watson as a sure bet for the big league. King Clancy was a referee. Goalie Frank Brimsek hadn't yet accomplished the feats which won him the nickname of "Mr. Zero." Muzz and Lynn Patrick were going strong in New York. Red Horner and Nels Stewart had just retired and Max Bentley was in his rookie year with Chi- cago. Charlie Conacher was stepping down and Elmer Lach was a rookie. That year, the Bruins became the first team to finish first and sweep the final in four straight. Mel (Sudden Death) Hill was the hero of the semi-final series against the Leafs. Hill earned his nickname by scoring three overtime goals in a series victory over New York the previous year. In 1M1 he scored the goal against Turk Broda which gave the Bruins a 2-1 victory over Toronto Maple Leafs in their seventh game and sent Boston into the final against Detroit. SCHMIDT WAS LEADER Milt Schmidt, now general manager, was the leading point-getter of the four-game sweep of He was 22 and had been up for five years. He got live goals and six assists. Schmidt, Eddie Wiseman and Pat McReavy scored for the Bruins in tile series opener, which they won 3-2. Carl Lis- conibe and Sid Howe replied for Detroit. Tlie Bruins won the second game 2-1 on goals by Roy Con- aeher and Terry Reardon with Mud Bruneteau scoring for De- troit. Boston made it three in a row with a 4-2 victory. Schmidt scored two, Wiseman and Art Jackson the others. Bill Jen- nings and Sid Abel counted for Detroit. Liscombe gave Detroit a 1-0 lead ia the first period of game four. It stood up until Flash Hol- lett converted a pass from Schmidt in the second. A minute later, Bobby Bauer broke the lie, banging Schmidt's rebound past Mowers. Wiseman came through in the final minute of the period to make sure of the victory. No active player on Boston's roster today has ever had his name engraved on the Stanley Cup. .Indeed, none has even played on a cup contender. As for Bobby Orr, the young Boston superstar, he wouldn't be born for another seven years when Boston last won the Stanley Cup.
