Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THS lETHBRIDOi HHALD Thursday, Odobtr 8, 1970 Canucks Make Debut In Rig Time Hockey Campaign Opens Friday By THE CANADIAN PRESS The National Hockey League, Its exhibition schedule ended, opens a new season Friday night with one of its newest teams providing the opposition and one of its most colorful players hanging up his skates. Three pre-season games Wednesday night ended the 136- game exhibition schedule. But Friday night in Vancouver the Canucks, one of the two new entries in the league this sea- son, open the regular 546-game schedule that will end six months later. The Canucks will entertain Los Angeles Kings in the only game that night. They will also play in Vancouver Sunday night against Toronto Maple Leafs and then travel to St. Louis for a game the following night against the Blues. But Sunday night, when Mont- real C a n i e n s open their schedule with a game against the Flyers in Philadelphia, they will be without John Ferguson, their combative left winger who through his rugged play has be- come known as the policeman of the Canadians. Ferguson, 32, announced his retirement from the game Wednesday, saying he can no longer give 100 per cent to hockey. He said he will devote his full time to a Montreal clo- thing firm. In the exhibition games, Bos- ton Bruins, Stanley Cup champi- ons, rallied to defeat New .York Rangers 8-6 for their fourth vic- tory in 10 games, Philadelphia beat Oakland Seals 3-1 and To- ronto and Los Angeles played to a 2-2 tie. HODGE SCORES THREE The Bruins overcame a four- goal performance by Jean Ra- telle of New York to defeat the Rangers. Ken Hodge scored three goals for Boston, his third going into an empty net. Fred 5'tanfield, Don Mareotte, John Bucyk, Rick Smith and Reg one of the wildest finishes in history, going down to the final day before Chicago Black Hawks edged Boston for first place with Detroit Red Wings Leach goals. got the other Boston Bob Nevin got the other goals for the Rangers who ended the exhibition schedule with five wins, three losses and a tie. Bob Kelley, 19, scored two goals for Philadelphia against Oakland and Serge Bernier got the other. Gary Croteau replied for the Seals. The Leafs, who have won only one of their 10 pre-season games, got goals from Bob Lid- dington and Mike Walton while defenceman Noel Price and Juha Widing scored for the Meanwhile, Tom Johnson, Boston's new coach, says he ex- pects another exciting finish in NHL's East Division this sea- son. "I think it will be much the same as last Johnson said Wednesday night when asked to assess this season's East Division race. The 1969-70 season produced and New York grabbing the other two playoff spots and Montreal missing out for the first time in years. This season Chicago is in the West Division because of expan- sion and re-alignment-Vancou- ver and Buffalo Sabres, the two new teams, are in the Easi Di- JIM PALMER The hard- throwing righthander will be on the mound Saturday lor Baltimore in the first game of ihe World Series. NHL Names Security Officer NEW YOHK (CP) The Na- tional Hockey League an- nounced Wednesday appoint- ment of Frank A. Torpey, 40, a former U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, as head of the league's new security divi- sion. NHL President Clarence Campbell, making the an- nouncement, said Torpey will begin at once to establish the security division, wlu'ch will be based in New York City. Torpey, who lives here, has received 15 meritorious-service citations during an 11-year po- lice career. Last March 9, the NHL board of governors voted to establish a permanent security arm as a "protective measure to insure in the eyes of the public the don pilling old friend, JKR used to say, it's World Serious- ness time, and considering what great gobs of greenstuff will be laid on the line, serious will be the business Saturday at Cincinnati's classy new River- front Stadium when the Reds and Baltimore Orioles tangle in the first game of the annual fall madness. I notice Las Vegas bookies have installed the Reds slight favorites, but for one reason and one reason if the series goes seven games the final game will be played in Cincinnati. The boys who make the book, in other words, feel there's very little to choose between the two ri- vals. They've labelled it a tossup series where one or two breaks could decide the entire issue. I think it is safe to assume that this year's struggle for supremacy possesses the ingredients for. ah epic battle between a pair of free wheeling clubs who both reeled off victories this season as if they were going out 'of style. The Reds are knee-deep in heavy artillery, de- stroying National League pitching with their booming bats right from the start until they wrapped the rib- bon around their division title some weeks ago. The long ball and the big inning led them down victory road so often that their opposition cannot be faulted for suffering multiple cases of shock and ex- posure. In fact, if the Orioles are to emerge with the spoils, they must silence the Cincinnati bats, particu- larly those of Johnny Bench, Tony Perez and Lee May who collected, among them, 118 home runs. Just for the record, that's 31 more than the entire Los Angeles Dodger output, the team that finished a distant second to the Big Red machine in the National League's western division. They're an impressive outfit, impressive because their bats do most of the talking, much like the great Yankee teams of the 1950's. Their pitching and thefr defence, much better than average, has played second fiddle all along. The Orioles who failed to live up to their press clippings last year when they faded in five games to the razzle dazzle, inspired play of the New York Mets, are called, by those close to the scene, the best-bal- anced team in the business. Their front line pitching should be considered- the best in baseball in view of the fact that they boast integrity of the sport of profes-1 three 20-game winners in Mike Cuellar, Dave McNally sional hockey and as a preven- tive against the involvement of gambling or criminal influence on the conduct of the game." One of Torpey's first duties will be to hire on a retainer basis a qualified investigator in every city where there is an NHL team. Torpey, who since 1965 has been manager of investigations in the security, department of Mobil Oil Corp., has a degree from Boston College. Torpey said "the NHL has been uncommonly free of scan- dal and it is our intention to keep it that way."

Cincinnati scouting reports reveal that the Balti- more defence is solid all the way down the line, and although the Orioles cannot match the Reds' awesome power, they are quite capable of hammering their way to victory. II there's a weakness to be found, point the finger at their second-line pitching. In a nutshell the series could develop into one of the most interesting clashes in many thing along the lines, possibly, of those Yankee-Dodger duels of the 1950's. Here you have two clubs who won their respec- tive pennants in a breeze two clubs with talent to burn. The Reds have that devastating power, a good defence and pitching that's better than you might sus- pect. The Orioles are strong in all departments, bal- ance being their key to success. Both are eager and both are ready. Who will eventually rule as king of the baseball castle? It says here the Orioles will be a much differ- ent team.than the one that bowed last year to the amazing Mets, and will prevail in six games. Barney Pilling, however, has a much different idea. The Reds in five, he informed me last night. Umpires Sign New Contract NEW YORK (AP) Major league umpires won a new, four-year contract Wednesday after a day of hard-nosed bar- gaining that paved the way for a trouble-free World Series. "I'm glad we can get back to bats and balls said Joe Cronin, the American League president, after the settlement providing, umpires with a man for playoff work and for the series the first' two years and and the last two. Baseball management also threw in a raise to for working an all-star game and some improvements in medical care. The contract is retroactive to the 1970 season and covers 1973. The contract eliminated the possibility of a series strike by the Major League Umpires As- sociation. WANTED The umpires and their lawyer, Jack Reynolds, were asking for and for the play- offs and World Series. They were paid and under the old agreement. Meeting with the umpires were baseball commissioner Bowie Ktirin, Cronin and Na- tional League president Charles Fecney, and their law- yer. READY FOR THE SEASON The City of lethbridge Parks and Recreation Deportment's hockey clinics wound up recently. A number of the boys who attended the clin- ic are shown with the instructors, left to right Les Colwill, Stan Maxwell, Howie. Yanoslk and Hec Negrello. Trr ics were run over a two-week period.

Controversial Goal System Is Eliminated TONY PEREZ He's ex- pected to carry much of the offensive load for Cincinnati Reds as they battle Balti- more Orioles in the World Se- ries, Opening Saturday in Cin- cinnati. The umpires association had been negotiating with manage- ment since August and when they were not able to agree on a contract, the umpires struck the opening games of the playoffs Saturday in Pittsburgh and Min- neapolis. Retired and part-time um- pires and minor leaguers were called in during the emergency to plug the gap. Jets Dump Smoke Eaters TRAIL (CP) Spokane Jets whipped the Trail Smoke Eat- ers 7-2 and took on some of the fans as well Wednesday in a Western International Hock- ey League game. The Jets spotted Trail a 2-1 first period lead and then scored six straight for the 7-2 victory. Gail Ifoldcn notched a pair of power play goals for the Jets and Tom Rcndall also scored twice. Singles came from Brian Strimbiski, Ken Gustasson and Dave Toner. Trail's first-period markers came from Glenn Ivison and Pat Laughlon. McGlotiiin Will Pitch Second Tilt CINCINNATI (AP) Jim McGIothlin, Cincinnati Reds right-hander, jokingly figures the odds are 10 to 1 against him Mating Baltimore Orioles in the second game of the World Ser- es. Because of McGIothlin's pre- 'ious experience facing the Ori- >les, Reds manager Sparky An- derson tapped him for the sec- ond game start Sunday in Riv- erfront Stadium. "There's no secret to pitching against ihe McGIothlin said during a Wednesday work- out. "You try to pitch them one he said, "and they've gol another 10 ways to beat you. "It seems like I faced them more than any other club when I was with the (California) An- jels. I guess that's because they are so tough. They beat me in ny first big league starts in 1965, 2-0 and McGIothlin, who came to the Reds in a trade for Alex Joim- ;on, posted a 5-5 record against Baltimore in his five seasons with California. Despite knee and head inju- ies that kept Mm out of action for nearly a month, McGIothlin posted a H-10 record and a 3.53 earned-run average with the Reds. He had been 8-16 in 1969 with the Angels. NEW YORK CAP) The Na- ional Hockey League will try a new way of breaking end-of-sea- son ties this year, eliminating ast year's controversial goal- scoruig system. The NHL board of governors ruled Wednesday that ties in the standings at the end of the regu- ation schedule would be settled >y giving the advantage to the earn with the greatest number of victories. H clubs have won the same number of games, the board ruled, the tie will be broken by ihe highest number of points earned among the competing teams in their own games over the season. Should the lie still exist, it .hen would be broken by the team with the best record in its own division. Some criticism arose last year of the system which broke ties with the team that had the most goals over the season. New York Rangers squeezed into a playoff berth on the last day by scoring nine goals against Detroit Hed Wings, who already had won a playoff berth. SETTLE DISPUTE In other business, the NHL settled its indemnification dis- pute with the Western and American hockey leagues over the annexation of the Vancouver and Buffalo territories. The AHL will receive from Buffalo Sabres and the WHL will get the same amount from Vancouver Canucks, said NHL president Clarence Campbell, The league also increased its draft claiming price to from but kept its waiver price at The league also announced that the financially-plagued Pittsburgh Penguins would re- main in Pittsburgh despite re- ports that the team might be transferred elsewhere. Campbell said it was reasona- ble to infer that the club will remain in Pittsburgh indefi- nitely. He said the league had made "financial and other con- siderations" to help the Pen- guins continue operations.
