Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Not eye to eye Montreal Canadiens' team captain Henri Richard and referee Lloyd Gilmore exchange words as Montreal the third goal scored by Chicago Black Hawks Thursday night in Stanley Cup final game in Chicago. The goal tied the score but the Habs went on to win 6-4 to take the Cop in six games. Ricliard to retire? Hawks never stopped Habs just too strong CHICAGO (CP) Henri Richard had mixed-'emotions as he skated around Chicago Sta- dium Thursday night, brandish- ing the Stanley Cup for the first time in his role as captain of Montreal Canadiens. On the one hand, Richard said later, he was proud that after 18 seasons with the Cana- diens he finally had the honor of being captain of a National Hockey squad. League championship On the other hand, he wasn't sure if he'll ever do it again. "Yes, this is one of my big- gest thrills and it could be my last said Richard who has said he may rebre this year. Richard had played a vital role in bringing the Canadiens their 18th 16th since the National Hockey League took sole possession of the tro- phy in 1927. Montreal won its fourth Cup final in six seasons by defeating Chicago Black Hawks 6-4 in the sixth game of the best-of-seven NHL final. Pilchard now has been a member of a Cup winner a record 11 more than his predecessor, the now-retired Jean Beliveau. "That's tha Richard proudly. "I'm the only one with 11'. No- body else has that one." On tha other side of the Cana- diens' noisy dressing room, Yvan Cournoyer was sur- rounded by reporters question- ing him about his third-period goal which won the game, set a playoff record and helped Peter and Frank Ma- win the Conn Smythe trophy as hovlich beat Hawks goalie Tony the most valuable player in ths playoffs. f AFUN For the young at heart, here's a great new Honda the CD175-T4__a rugged, light sports-tourer with firecracker get- -up-and-go!

"All I was thinking about was the Stanley the only trophy that said the Canadiens' right-winger. "When you work hard, things happsn." When asked if the victory marked the end of his 18-year career, Richard replied: don't know. I naed a few weeks to think about Reminded he had said the odds were 80-20 that he would relire, Richard said: "The 20 per cent chance I won't is still there today." But Montreal coach Scotty Bowman was glad Richard was there Thursday night when he needed him. The Canadiens had fallen be- hind 2-0 on Pit Martin's first of three goals in the game midway in the first The Car.adiens were lagging and being generally cut-hustled by Uie Hawks. But with 12 seconds left in the opening period, Richard, who had bean hustling and en the short end of several heavy checks, scored to put the Cana- diens back in tha game.

Larose crashed heavily into the goal beside netminder Ken Dryden as he sprawled in an ef- fort to step a rink-wide pass to the onrushing Hull. Larose was taken to hospital but later returned to Montreal with the team on a chartered aircraft early today. Records set in bunches CHICAGO (CP) Yvan Cournoyer's 15th goal of the 1973 Stanley Cup playoff sea- son Thursday was only one of several record-setting per- formances in the National Hockey League final series between Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Black Hawks. Cournoyer's goal proved to be the winner in Montreal's 6- 4 victory which gave them the b e s t-of-seven championship series by four games to two. Cournoyer, in only 17 play- off games this season, erased tie old mark of 14 goals scored by team-mate Frank Mahovlich during 20 games of the 1971 playoff season. Other milestones reached in Thursday's game: Chicago line of Pit Martin, Jim Pappin and Den- nis Hull finished the playoffs a total of 55 points, breaking the record of 5? set by Boston Bruins' Johnny Bucyk. John McKenrie and Fred Stanfield in 1972. finished the six- game final series with 33 goals scored, breaking their old mark of 28 in the seven- game quarter-final series against Boston in 1971. The 56-goal total compiled by Montreal and Chicago in the final set also surpassed the record 54 compiled by Mon- treal and Boston in the 1971 quarter-final. Stapleton of Chicago and Jacques Lemaire of Mon- treal each finished with eight assists in the series, tying the final-series mark set by Mon- treal's Bert Olrnstead in a five-game series in 1356. Henri Richard of Montreal played with a Stan- ley Cup-winning team for the lith time, giving him sole leadership in that category. Previously, Richard was tied with now-retired team-mate Jean Beliveau with 10 Cup victory appearances. appeared in the 168th playoff game of his 18- season NHL career. Until this year, now-retired Red Kelly held the record of 164 career playoff games with Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was just foe latest Jn a Fired Vic Stasiuk was fired as coach of the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League Thursday adding more woe to the dismal coast club's firture. Race results Park long series of setbacks for the lowly Canucks, whose on-ice in- eptitude has been matched by off-ice bungling. Stasiuk lasted just one year at the helm of the team, with his no nonsense style winning him f friends inside the lock- er room. Ironically, he had been brought to Vancouver primarily because he was known as a tough coach with the Van- couver management express- ing the opinion that what the I young team needed was a strict disciplinarian. His approach i contrasted with the more easy going style espoused by form- er coach Hal Laycoe, booted upstairs to the team's execu- tive suite after coaching the team in its first two years in ager, the dub president appeal- ing a four-yaar jail sentence and one of the few star players de- manding to be traded. Former general manager Bud Pcile quit earlier this year for medical reasons, while club president Tom Scallen was sen- ;enced last month to four years in prison for theft by conver- sion and issuing a false prospec- tus. He is free on bail while awaiting an appeal. Dale Taltan, the team's big- gest name and first draft choice n 1970, has demanded to be traded to another NHL team or :i2'U jump to the rival World Hockey Association. fur- CALGARY Victoria race results Thursday: First claiming, 2-year-olds, 5 longs.

It didn't staged against the tight rein kept by the 43-year-old Lethbridge na- tive, with the most widely-pub- licized incident occuring in New York in March, when most of ths team's players left the ice before the end of a prac- tice. Several players, declining to give tlieir names, said they dis- liked Stasiuk, didn't want to play for him, and would like to see him fired. Stasiuk commented that to- day's players weren't willing to play to win and said players were ready to "blame someone else the coach for los- ing." In the season's last game, against Los Angeles Kings, goal- ie Dune Wilson, who had earl- ier displayed his unhappiness with Stasiuk, refused to go into the net for the second half of the game. Tc'am vice-president Laycoe said disciplinary action was taken against the player, but no specific action was ever an- nounced. It -was the fiery Stasiuk's third NHL coaching position. 990 He coached at Philadelphia, where he raised the hackles of the team's French players by demanding that they speak Eng- lish only on the ice, then moved to California Golden Seals. He lasted one year with the inept Seals, getting bounced after the team narrowly massed the play- offs. He played in the NHL with Chicago, Detroit and Boston. He guided the Canucks to a miserable 22-47-9 season in his one year, good for seventh place in the eight-team eastern division. His firing left the Canucks with no coach or general man- Puiicli back, Gunip signs BUFFALO (CP1 Buffalo Sabres announced Thursd a y that Punch Imlach has signed a two-year contract as vice- president and general manager of the National Hockey League club.

Rangers caught in ambush By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS When you manage Texas Rangers, you have to scramble sometimes to find a silver lin- ing. So it was with Whitey Her- zcg Thursday night.

Manager Dick Wilh'ams threw 16 players into action and reaped four singles from Bert Campaneris, a homer and two singles from Johnson and a double and pair of singles from Joe Rudi. In seven games as Oakland's designated hitter since coming over from the Na- tional League, Johnson is bat- ting .406 with three homers and nine runs batted in.
