Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta PriAvy, Niiieiirliii VWW Wl LllrlMIUUI IffltAlD Flames climb ladder Last laugh for MacMillan? By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Stall Writer Billy MacMillan may yet have the final laugh on Toronto Maple Leafs. The National Hockey League club left the 29-year-old winger off their protested list in last June's National Hockey League draft. He was the first Leaf to go in the expansion Atlanta. Now MacMillan and his Flames' team-mates are burn- ing up the NHL'S West Divi- sion. Their latest conquest came Thursday night, 4-0 over New York first-year moved them into third place, one point behind the co-leaders Phila- lelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings. MacMillan's fourth goal of the year, at of the first period, and second-game winning score for the Flames was all the mar- gin goaltender Pb'l Myre needed in posting his first shut- out of the season, 1IABS IN CHARGE Montreal Canadians, who opened a seven-point lead in the East Division race over New York Rangers, were hard- pressed to beat Philadelphia 6-5 while Boston Bruins blanked St. Louis Blues 4-0. The Kings visit Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres are In Oakland against California Golden Seals in tonight's only games. With tlie Leafs laboring in sixth spot in the East, out of the playoff picture as of the mo- ment, MacMillan couldn't be more pleased with the change of scenery. "Beautiful city and great he said recently, after settling with his family in the Georgia capital that never be- fore had entertained a hockey franchise. "I Just love it. Most of the guys do." It's a far cry from lying in Toronto's WeUesley Hospital with an ailing back and hearing that the Leafs weren't prepared to wait out his recovery. WHA CONSIDERED He had been harboring thoughts of joining kid brother Bobby with Minnesota Fighting Saints of the rival World Hockey Association before sit- ting down with Atlanta general manager Cliff Fletcher. The Flames offer was in the same area as that negotiated by the Sainls, so MacMillan, a Cnarlottetown native who was Prince Edward Island's man of the year in 1970, remained in Ihe NHL. He readily admits he's sur- prised at the Flames' fast start, but even more startling is the reception the club is getting in its new ice Omni. "We're averaging a game, really killing basket- he says of the fan com- petition with the Hawks of the National Basketball Association. "They're drawing about 000 a game. "The fans apparently go for the body contact." If such is the case, the who showed up for the Island- ers' game were treated to scrap between Flames' veteran captain, Noel Price, and rugged Brian Spencer. BUCHANAN HOT Ron Buchanan gave himselt a belated birthday present Thurs- day was 28 Wednes- he scored four goals and picked up an assist in lead- ing Cleveland Crusaders to first place in the Eastern Division of the World Hockey Association. Buchanan, who has knocked around the minors since being a high-scoring junior with Oshawa Generals, scored two goals in each of the second and third pe- riods as Cleveland Crusaders beat Ottawa Nationals 6-3. In the only other action, Min- nesota Fighting Saints edged Quebec Les Nordiques 5-4. Cleveland's win gave them 23 points, two more than Quebec and four more than the idle New England Whalers, who have two games in hand. Gary Jarrett and Paul An- drea scored the other Cleveland goals.

AKV'XVTT Kisio scores three goals in victory Dennis Kisio rifled in three big goals and led the Univer- sity of Lethbridge Pronghorus to a 4-1 viclcry over the Labor Club Athletics in the only City Recreation Hockey Lea gue game staged Thursday night. Kisio, who notched the most goals in the league last sea- son, gave the Pronghorns an early lead tallying at the 54 second mark of the opening per- iod. At the marie, lie extended the P.-onghom's lead to 2-0 and then waited until Bill An- derson scored a lone marker in the second period before he completed the hat-trick. Tim Negrello spoiled Prong- horn's goalie, Rod Morrice's shutout with an early goal in the final period. Meanwhile two games were played in the City Recreation Hockey League Wednesday night with Miners Library win- ning over Purity Bottling 5-1 and the Labor Club and the Col- lege playing to a 6-6 lie. The Miners Library scored ,wo goals in each of the last two periods to I eak a l-t tie at the end of the first period in chalking up their victory over Purity. Richard Chollack and Fred Weiss scored twice each and Brian Murkin once for Miners. Dairy! Asplund replied 'or Purity, who took four of the seven minor penalties called. Miller issued a statement after returning from an emer- gency league meeting in Winni- peg Thursday where a notice of motion was given asking for ap- proval in principle to expand into the U.S. The motion will be discussed at s league meeting in Hamilton Dec. 1. Miller said the subject ol American expansion has pre- viously been reviewed by the club "with the unanimous con- clusion that such a move would eventually destroy the CFL as a Canadian entity and in the proc- ess the Canadian game of foot- ball as we know it today. "In addition the Grey Cup would very soon become mean ingless." He said the notice of motion was presented by Toronto Argo- nauts of (he Eastern Football Conference. Edmonton pre- sented a motion favoring ex- pansion, but "only to suitable Canadian centres." EAST FOR U.S. MOVE Miller indicated the eastern football conference teams fa- vored U.S. expansion. "The Eskimos directors rec- ognize the seriousness of the sit- uation because it has been sug- gested that if we do not vote in favor of the Toronto motion, the four eastern teams may elect to withdraw from the CFL al tte end of .a three-year period pro- vided in the constitution. "If this is the irrevocable po- sition o[ the eastern owners, then the onus will be on their shoulders for the loss of Cana- dian football." The CFL as presently con- stituted is not witlwut problems. Miller said- But it "can solve ils difficulties and remain a strong and economically viable professional league keeping faith with its supporters and making a unique contribution to Canadian life." Edmonton intends "lo seek [he support of every possible source to convince eastern club owners of the dcplh of feeling in Ihis country for Canadian foot- ball and the continuation of the CFL controlled by Canadians playing our Canadian brand of football."

PHONE 327-15J1 Racine dislikes training camp Bomber boss had no preference WINNIPEG (CP) Head coach Jim Spavltal didn't ac- knowledge a preference be- tween Saskatchewan and Ed- monton as opponents for his Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Western Football Conference fi- nal Sunday. But he did give the nod to Dave Skrien's Roughriders, mostly on the basis of ex- perience and the heads-up foot- ball expected from veterans Hon Lancaster and George Reed, to wind up as the team to beat in the West. Neither the Winnipeg coach- ing staff nor the Bomber play- ers were even mildly surprised when Saskatchewan, who fin- ished third during the regular season, knocked off the second- place Eskimos 8-6 last weekend in Ihe semi-final contest. It's no surprise that the Bombers are expecting a tough, punishing game with no quarter expected or give from Sas- katchewan. The Bombers will be trying this weekend to extend their un- defeated home-game record to 14 games, a string that stretches back to last season, when the last team to beat I hem in Winnipeg Stadium was Skrien's Roughriders. Despite Skrien's insistence that his club is hurting, Spavital isn't buying the story. After the Saskatchewan-Ed- monton game, Skrien said both his guards, Jack Abendschan and Gary Brandt, were injured, as was George Reed, the pre- mier runnint back with Uie club for the last 10 years. "Heed will be heallhy come Sunday, you can count on Spavital said. "And he'll carry the ball 20 times. I've heard all the stories about Reed being in- jured this year, hut I notice he found time to rush for more than yards. Neither is Spavital convinced the Saskatchewan guards are ready for the nursing home. "Their pass blocking was ex- he said, referring to the semi-final contest against Edmonton. "Heck, Lancaster had a day and a half to throw the ball so somebody must have been blocking." But the Winnipeg offensive line can't be taken lightly ei- ther. "They got to (quarterback Don) Jonas only five tiroes, and that, includes the pre-season said offensive tackle Bill Frank. Frank, a veteran of 11 years in the Canadian Football League, says the Bomber offen- sive line has a lot of pride. "It's playing together and working together, I guess. We watch films together and we co- ordinate our blocks on game day. I've been with a lot of of- fensive lines hut this one is closer than all the rest." Bombers have eight rookies on the squad, giving them a team average of 2.5 years' ex- perience as a unit, while the Roughriders, carrying six first- year men, average 4.7 years to- gether. What sort of wrinkles can the Bombers expect from the Sas- katchewan offence? "Woll they used an 'I' forma- tion against Edmonton, which I haven't seen them use pre- viously this said Spa- vital. "And Lancaster and Reed, what more do they Despite sell-outs at the seat stadium lor seven of the Bombers' eight home games this season, early indications are only about fans will take in the sudden-death con- test to decide the West's Grey Cup representative. The game will be telecast na- tionally on CBC beginning at MST. "If it wasn't for training camp, I think I could play until I was says offensive tackle Moe Racine of Ottawa Rough Rid- ers. Racine, who celebrated Mi 35th birthday last month, is Uw oldest member of the Riders who face Hamilton Tiger-Cate Saturday in the opening gami of the Eastern Football Confer- ence finals. In his 15th year with Ottawa, Racine has played In three Grey Cup missed the 1969 game because of i shoulder injury. Says Ottawa head coach Jacfc Gotta: "Some guys at 35 are all washed up. This guy looks like he could go on forever." Racine, an EFC scoring champion while he was Ot- tawa's kicker, says he has no plans for retirement. "I make up my mind year at a tune." Gotta meanwhile warded off comments on his weekend meeting with vice-president Harry Hulmes of New Orleans Saint's of the National Football League. Gotta, who ends his three- year contract with Riders this season, told The Ottawa Journal that be would be "silly if I said I wasn't prepared to listen" but expressed confidence he would be back with Ottawa next sea- son. Playoff time isn't the time to negotiate new contracts, be said.
