Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Mondoy, November 1, 1971 Golden Seals unbeaten in last four outings Rangers extend lead with tie, Canadiens belted By IAN MocLAINB Canadian Press Staff Writer One thing most National Hockey League clubs learn at one time or another: Don't let Boston Bruins' lack of scoring punch in one game lull you into over-confidence. Minnesota North Stars look a seven-game unbeaten string into Boston Sunday night, geared to follow up where California Seals left off last Thursday when they blanked the Beantowners 2-0. But it was a different game Sunday and the high-powered Bruins replied with a scorching 5-2 victory to remain in contention for the East Division lead with 13 points, three behind leading New York Rangers and one back of Montreal Canadiens. In other Sunday night action, 'V- ol^'- Hip _ *  � few RED WINGS COACH RESIGNS-Doug Barkley, coach of the Detroit Red Wings, resigned Sunday night following the game in Detroit against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Barkley said he "couldn't get the team going." Surprise move Doug Barkley leaves Wings By THE CANADIAN PRESS Three struggling National Hockey League teams came out of weekend action with new coaches, none the worse for the changes but still struggling. Fred Glover, fired earlier in the season by California Golden Seals, was named the new Los Angeles Kings coach Saturday by general manager Larry Regan, who had previously held the dual role. The Kings responded by losing 5-1 the same night to Chicago Black Hawks. St. Louis Blues, the same day, brought in former player Bill McCreary to coach and moved Sid Abel into the general manager's position. That title had previously been held by vice-president Lynn Patrick. The Blues responded by playing to a 4-4 lie Saturday with Philadelphia Flyers. Doug Barkley made a more dramatic exit at Detroit. He told his Red Wing club before their Sunday night game with Pittsburgh Penguins it would be his last game behind the bench and would they "go out and win it for me." He was replaced by Johnny Wilson, coach at Tidewater in the American Hockey League. The Wings, last in the East Division, responding by dumping the Penguins 3-1. Glover, who established all-time career marks for goals, assists and points in the American Hockey League with Cleveland Barons, was named California coach in May, 1968. He led the Seals to second in the West Division his first year, to fourth in the 1969-70 season, then fell to the basement a year later. The club was going nowhere early this year until he was replaced by Vic Stasiuk about two weeks ago and is currently on a four-game unbeaten streak, including Sunday night's 2-2 tie with Buffalo Sabres. McCreary, 35, retired as a player this year to coach St. Louis' farm team, Denver Spurs of the Western Hockey League. Ho was player-coach with Dallas of the Central League before joining the Blues as a player in the 1967 expansion. The Spurs were 5-1 under McCreary this year. The man he replaced, Abel, had held the job only for nine games in which St. Louis was able to win only three times, a far cry from recent seasons when they have either led the West Division or remained close to the top. Abel, former general manager and coach at Detroit, was named to fill the post vacated at the end of last season by Scotty Bowman who moved into a coaching vacancy with the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens. Barkley, who became coach at Detroit late in the 1970-71 season following a front-office insurrection in which Abel was fired by the Detroit organization, said in an interview Sunday night he "felt the team was not working the way it can for mc." Barkley, a native of Leth-bridge, said there were no hard feelings with the players, but be felt they weren't responding to his methods of coaching. He felt there was enough talent to get the Wings into the playoffs. However, the writing was apparently on the wall and he didn't "want to wait two weeks and end up getting fired. ... I wanted a new coach in now, before they got too far behind." "I told them (the players') before the game and asked them to go out there and win it for mo." Wilson, who coached Springfield Kings to the AHL title last year, had been coaching the Wings' new AHL franchise at Tidewater, Va. He joined Detroit in time for tonight's game at Toronto against the Maple Leafs. "I can't see it go under," said Barkley of the team and his decision to quit. "This club is . . . only four points out of a playoff spot now. ALI INKS CONTRACT DUESSELDORF (AP) - Muhammad Ali, former world heavyweight champion, has signed a contract to fight former West German champion Juergen Blin Dec. 26 in Zurich, Switzerland.

Trevino picked up $27,000 from the total purse to became the game's top single-season money winner. Jack Nicklaus, who did not compete, had set the record of $211,566 in 1967.

Hayes, who scored 10 points before his departure, said he left because of an injured leg. But Tex Winter, in his first season as Houston coach, apparently thought otherwise. Winter said: "He makes it very difficult for me to coach the team as a unit. I don't think the way some of the players have been playing is good enough." Karcem Jabber, formerly Lew Alcindor, scored 13 points and Bob Dandridge had 12 as Milwaukee raced to a commanding 30-15 first-quarter lead against Cleveland. Jabbar finished with 35 points.
