Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta CamiHe Henry not happy Flyers open with shutout PHILADELPHIA (CP) It was a promoter's dream, there was Bernie Parent, the wandering goal tender, at one end of the rink for Philadelphia Flyers and their former team-mate Doug Favell in goal for the op- position. The opposition, of course, was Toronto Maple Leafs who won only seven of 39 National Hockey League games on the road last season and lost all three in Philadelphia. The Flyers won 2-0 Thurs- day night as Parent stopped 24 shots in a hard-hitting game, dominated by the rugged Philadelphia club It was the first game of the season for the Western Divi- sion Flyers and the second for the new-look Leafs, who defeated Buffalo Sabres 7-4 Wednesday night. The league resumes tonight with Chicago Black Hawks playing in California against the Golden Seals and Pitt- sburgh Penguins at Atlanta Falcons Before fans in Phila- delphia, the Flyers took a 1-0 lead in the first period when centre Terry Crisp beat Favell from 25 feet Bill Barber added the insurance goal with Denis Dupere of Toronto in the penalty box at of the third The Leafs, who dressed eight players not with the club last season, didn't provide Parent with a difficult test un- til late in the second period during a power play. Parent, who played with Philadelphia Blazers of the 'World Hockey Association in 1972-73. made an impressive save on Dave Keon from 20 feet, then another on Errol Thompson. Earlier this year, the Leafs traded Parent's rights to the Red Devils edge Falcons ANNOUNCEMENT 4 DATSUN 610 COUPE AND SEDAN DEMONSTRATORS FOR SALE Fully Equipped OUTSTANDING SAVINGS ON ALL UNITS 4 TRIPLE E HONEY TRAILERS For Immediate Delivery FOREIGN CAR (Lethbridgej LTD. 1102-3rdAve. S.

As I understand the Situation, Pheasant hunting is the fifth largest m the South This means a lot to many people as well as the hunter who enjoys his sport Let's flet together and try to do something for the next season. In the mean- time, there is a good number of partridge in the South, maybe this will take some pressure off the pheasant But do write your Member of Parliament the Pheasant Need Help1 COMING EVENTS Sunday Oct 14, 1 p.m at Warner, the north edge of town Bring your shotgun and shoot for turkeys or cash.

Later, the Flyers completed the deal by sending Favell to the Leafs. The Flyers, who outscored the Leafs 22-4 in Philadelphia last season, picked up two ma- jors compared with one by the Leafs. Dave Schultz of the Flyers and Swedish defenceman Bor- je Salming exchanged slashes in the first period, then engag- ed in a hugging match which earned the pair each a minor and major. In the third period, Ed Van Impe got a five- minute spearing penalty but the Leafs didn't pose much of a threat. In the meantime coach Camille Henry said New York Golden Blades set an unof- ficial club record for the young World Hockey Associa- tion season. "The first period was our worst of the year, the second period was our second worst, and the third period was our third worst." New York's 4-3 loss to Chi- cago Cougars meant the Golden Blades are winless after three starts, although they have two ties. In the other game, Quebec Nordiques took over first place in the Eastern Division with a 4-1 win over Toronto Toros. The final heartbreaker for New York was a missed penalty shot by Andre Lacroix of the Blades with 97 seconds remaining. "I had it in my mind to take a fairly long shot." Lacroix said, "but when I crossed the blue line. I looked at Cam Newton and saw he was way out of the net. I went in as far as I could and tried to fake him, but the ice was very bumpy. When I tried to go to my backhand, I fumbled the puck The result was a weak shot which Newton steered out of the way. The Cougars, second in the Eastern Division with three points, got goals from Brian Glenwright, Francois Rochon. Joe Hardy and Jan Popeil which gave them a 4-1 lead. Wayne Rivers, Kevin Morrison and Mike Laugh ton replied for the Blades, outshot 31-17. The Nordiques had little trouble against the Toros, seeking their first win against a defeat and two ties.

Keystone manager Jack Brockest said the incident was not the prin- cipal reason for suspending the sale of beer.

"He throws the ball right over the plate and everybody hits the ball right to some- body." first baseman Earl Williams muttered. Third baseman Brooks Robinson, who got two ot the Orioles' five hits, used almost identical words: "He makes you hit the ball. He knows what he's doing, keeps the ball where he wants it and just goes after you. He does well in a big game "He reminds me of Jim said catcher Andy Etchebarren, whose double in the fifth inning was the first hit off Hunter and who led the Orioles in batting for the playoff series. "Jimmy throws harder, but Hunter kept coming at us, and we couldn't do anything."
