Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, November 15, 197Z Canucks storm back for deadlock Islanders couldn't hold Canadians T.y IAN MacLAlNE Canadian Press Slaff Writer You'd think Scolly Bowman liad it all figured out at Hie shirt of the year. "I think we've had a Rood training camp and we're very pleased with most of our the Montreal Cana- diens coach remarked of his club's chances in the forthcom- ing National Hockey League season. "With the mixture we should be a contender." The Canadiens aren't just having a "good" season. They're dominating (he NHL and Tuesday night's 7-2 victory over New York Islanders moved them seven points atop the East Division ahead of New York Rangers. The Montrealcrs have lost Allen easy NEW YORK (AP) Dick Al- len, the muscle of Chicago White Sox' offence, was named today the American League's Most Valuable Player of 1972. Allen won the coveted prize in a landslide vote from the Base- ball Writers' Association of America, receiving 21 out of a possible 24 first-place votes. The Sox' star first baseman, who slugged a league- leading "7 homo runs and knocked in a career-high 113 runs, uon ilie trophy easily ever outfielder Jue Kiicii of the world champion Oakland Athlet- ics. Ai'en, playicg his first year in the American League after several years in the National, was the only player named on all 24 ballots. He finished with a total of 321 points, just 15 shy of a perfect score, while runner-up Rudi collared 161. Rudi, the Athletics' leading hitter with a .305 average, was named on 22 of 24 ballots. Sparky Lyle, the left-handed relief ace of New York Yan- kees, 35 games and won nine during the 1972 sea- Eon, finished third in the voting with 158 points. Allen, Rudi, Lyle and pitcher Mickey Lolich of Detroit Tigers, who finished 10th with 60 points, were the only players to receive first-place votes. Rudi, Lyle and Lolich got one each. After the 1-2-3 finishers, the rest of the lop 10 MVP players were: catcher Carlton Fisk of Boston Red Sox; outfielder Bobby Murcer of New York; Cleveland Indians' pitcher Gay- lord Perry; pitcher Wilbur Wood of Chicago; pitcher Luis Tiant of Boston; shortstop Ed Brinkman of Detroit Tigers and Lolich. Allen is only the second White Sox player to win the award. Nellie Fox was the other in 1959. Playing with his fourth team In as many years, Allen was ob- tained by the White Sox from Los Angeles Dodgers in a trade last winter. He received a bonus to sign his first pro contract with Philadelphia Phillies and was traded to St. Louis Cardinals after a controversy-marked ca- reer. Allen stayed only one year with St. Louis before being traded to Los Angeles. He was gone after one year there, too. Allen, who on occasion missed games with his three previous teams, was punctual all season for Chuck Tanner, the White Sox manager who is a close family friend. Viney give talk Henry Viney, a well known Calgary sports announcer and commentator, be the guest speaker at the annual meeting of the Lethbridge Family "Y" planned for tonight. The meeting will get under- way at 7 p.m .in the "all pur- pose" room at the YMCA. AH members and friends are welcome to attend.

For heaven's sake why? I'll tell you why, we don't need it. Not for pro- fessional hockey or for amateur hockey. If the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association was responsible, and from reports Monday they were mainly respon- sible, for blocking a proposed January visit by a Sov- iet team, bully for them. We are looking to saturate ourselves with inter- national hockey at a time when we don't need it. Even four games would be too much, in my way of thinking, so close on the heels of the greatest hockey series in the history of the fastest sport in the world. Negotiations, according to Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, have broken down and at present it looks as though the series will not materialize. The Russian team, to be selected by the Soviet officials between now and January, was to meet four individual teams from the National Hockey League. Now, because the series did not go through proper channels, the Russians feel they have heavy commit- ments within their own structure, plus preparations for the 1973 world championships in Moscow. Joe Kryczka, president of the CAHA, isn't laugh- ing, but if he is snickering, as a Calgary story leads one to believe, he has eveiy right to be. Kryczka says he received a letter from Uie Soviet Ice Hockey Federation dated Nov. 2 indicating there "would be no series." Campbell and Alan Eagleson were still promoting a proposed series on Monday of this week. Chalk one up to the amateurs. When I think back to the original series of eight games with Team Canada, I seem to recall one big happy family backing the series. Team Canada, Uie National Hockey League Play- .er's Association and the CAHA. Apparently this was not the case. Following directly on the heels of the breakdown of the latest series Kryczka said he wasn't surprised that the NHL and the NHL Player's Association have ignored the amateur bodies in a pursuit of the inter- national hockey dollar. 'It's typical of their arrogance. They were willing to let us open the door for them, now they want us to disappear into the woodwork." "They're not interested in cutting the amateur groups a share of the International hockey pie now, but what they're not going to be able to sidestep is the fact that all European teams are bound to the In- ternational Ice Hockey Federation and would risk dis- ciplinary action if they entered into a deal with the pros without first obtaining IIHF sanction, something the CAHA can get." So it would appear, the Russians won't be coming in January. The lowly amateur has risen up and smitten the Goliath professional. Perhaps the CAHA did the NHL a favor for the time being. I don't think we have had time to put to use all that we learned from the Russians in the September series. I can't help recalling what the coach of the Russian national team, Vsevolod Bobrov, said recently: "When we first met with the Canadian amateurs on the ice, many things in hockey were still a great secret to us. We studied, we caught up with our teachers and surpassed the amateurs. Now, we do not have to catch up with the professionals. It only remains for us to go ahead and surpass them." Hawks will fight WHA CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League said Tuesday they would continue efforts to prevent former Hawk superslai: Bnbby Hull from playing for Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. A Black Hawk lawyer, Sey- mour Sender, said, the NHL club's effort to renew B re- straining order aga.inst Hull's play in the WHA must wait un- til Nov. 20. That is the dale set by a Philadelphia federal judge last week a surely Iwnd bo posted by the WHA in his ruling granting a tempora.ry injunction barring the NHL from enforcing its re- serve clause. That ruling permitted Hull to perform for the Jets under a multi-million dollar contract. Scheier said the Black Hawks asked circuit court Judge Fianeis T. Delaney Monday to renew a restraining order against Hull. "Judge Delaney said he won't do anything until he finds out whether the WHA bond Li said Scheier. "If the bond U posted, then there is no further case in Chicago." just once while winning 13 of 13 games. Elsewhere Tuesday, Min- nerota Norlh Stars beat Los An- geles 4-1 lo continue their un- beaten string over the Kings that covers the last four sea- sons and Vancouver Canucks came from a three-goal deficit to tie Dirtroit Red Wings 3-3. Atlanta Flames, who had a somewhat hazardous landing at Toronto International Airport, meet the Maple Leafs tonight. In other games, Philadelphia Flyers are at New York Rangers, Detroit is in Oakland against California Golden Seals, Buffalo Sabres visit Los Ange- les and Pittsburgh Penguins en- tertain Minnesota. The Canadiens have been get- ling key games from several players la date, but their big shooter is. Jacques Lemaire, a surprise in that he Is one regu- lar who didn't perform impres- sively in the pre-season camp. Lemaire scored his 15th goal of the season to give Montreal a 5-2 lead and Mare Tardif and Frank Mahovlich finished Ihe rout at New York before more than 10.000 fans in Nassau Coli- seum. Lemaire also picked up an assist lo increase his NHL scoring lead to 28 points. The Canadiens opened a 3-1 lead before veteran Ron Stew- art, obtained earlier in the day from their cross-town rivals, the Rangers, scored nn a power-play to bring the Island- ers to within one. First period goals by Danny Grant, Murray Oliver and J. P. Parisc propelled the North Stars into a 3-0 lead at Min- neapolis and they were ahead 4- 0 before Ralph Bactetrom endsd Gump Worsloy's hid for his 44th career shutout at of the Ihird period. BOUDRIAS COUNTS 2 Andre Boudrias scored the first of his two goals in the opening period after goaltender Dune Wilson allowed three De- troit scores. The Canucks took the play from Detroit in the final 40 min- utes and capitalized on Red Wing penalties lo even the Don Lever scor- ing in the second and Boudrias in the third with Ihe opposition short-handed. The Flames' were scheduled to stop at Buffalo en route to Toronto, but they continued their night afler making three attempts to land during the area's first major snow storm. Conditions weren't much bet- ter in Toronto hut, afler one ab- hortcd landing attempt, their craft dnd touch to the relief of Atlanta coach Ber- nie Geoffrion. "Damned right it scared said the former NHL scor- ing star with Montreal and New York. "I hate flying anyhow, and we were going down, going up three times. "Then the same thing at To- ronto."

(Rick Frvin pholo) Five-poiver play goals for Jets Penalties did it to Sharks By THE CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles vSharks only themselves to blame for Tuesday night's 8-0 humiliation by Winnipeg Jets. The World Hockey Associ- ation club apparently estab- lished its rough-house pattern of play in prc-season contests and they've since come under the jaundiced eyes of league offi- cials. Te Sharks drew 10 of the 12 minor penalties meted out hy referee Ron Sloane and the hometown Jets, playing before fans, converted five into power-play scores, two of them by defenceman Larry Hornung. In other WHA contests Tues- day, Minnesota Fighting Saints scored three goals in a span of 96 seconds to defeat the Eastern D i v i s i o n-leading Cleveland Crusaders 5-3 while Andre Lacr- oix's goal with 10 seconds left in thi! game gave Philadelphia Blazers a 4-3 win over Chicago Cougars.

The game at St, Paul was de- layed for ]5 minutes in the sec- ond period when Cleveland's Jim Wiste and Jay Anderson, a employee, had a fight in the visitor's penalty box. Wiste's team-mates joined in and were pelted with chairs thrown from the stands by some of Uie fans. Anderson, a former National Football league player with New York Giants, was taken to hospital with unde- termined injuries. COUGARS REDOUND On the ice, Keith Christian- sen, George KKonik and Fred Speck with his second of the night into an empty Cleveland goal, turned the game around.
