Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta inurtaay, uciooer 10, mt Lt i MBHIU McDonald earns first NHL marker ANDY CAPP Maple Leafs upend Canadiens Canadian Press Until Wednesday night, young Lanny McDonlad had been having his problems liv- ing up to his nickname Machine-Gun Lanny. He had earned the epithet for his scoring exploits in the Western Canada Hockey League, where he terrorized opposition goalkeepers with his scoring prowess. When Toronto Maple Leafs drafted him in the National Hockey League's amateur draft last summer, they felt that McDonald, a 62-goal man with Medicine Hat Tigers in 1972-73, would add some scor- ing punch to their lineup. McDonald finally managed his first goal in NHL play Wednesday night and no doubt, he will remember it for a long time. McDonald whipped a shot past Montreal Canadiens goalie Michel Larocque with Summaries Williams a Yank? Manager Dick Williams of the Oakland Ath- letics, will leave the club at the end of the World Series to become manager of the New York Yankees. Williams denies the story but the players say it is true. PHILADELPHIA 5, CALIFORNIA t First period 1. Philadelphia. Schultz 2 (Watson, Crisp) 2. Philadelphia. MacLeish 3 (Kindrachuk, Saleski) 17.50.

LONDON (Reuterj Professional hockey returns to London this week after a break of 13 years, but none of the players in the newly- formed London Lions team is British. The squad includes Canadians, Americans and Swedes, who have been train- ing together at Port Huron, Mich., and will make their London debut Friday against an Austrian team. An ambitious program of three matches-a-week against continental European opposi- tion has been arranged, but it remains to be seen whether the game will attract public support. The earlier British league foundered in 1960 when property developers took over most of the major rinks to build supermarkets and houses. Now Bruce Norris of the National Hockey League's Detroit Red Wings and a Michigan grain and shipping millionaire, has put up about Scarber back with Eskimos EDMONTON (CP) Sam Scarber has been placed on a five-day trial by the Ed- monton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference. The fullback, who was in- jured and then cut in training camp, was brought in by the club Tuesday. He had played with the Eskimos last year and during the last half of the schedule in 1971. He was brought in as in- surance after regular fullback Gene Foster injured his ankle ir. Saturday's game at Van- couver. "Gene Foster could hardly walk by the end of practice Monday.'' coach Ray Jauch said. "Sam was still in town going to university so we put him on a trial." Fullback Calvin Harrell is not eligible to play. He had to be placed on the injury reserve list before game time Saturday. He could, however, play against Calgary next week. to back up his belief that ice hockey can be resurrected in Britain. Rick McCann. a former member of Canada's national team, will captain the London Lions while Sweden will be represented by goalminder Leif Holmqvist and veteran Ulf Sterner. Holmqvist played in the 1972 Olympic tournament while Sterner, now 32. competed in 11 world championships, play- ing 189 games for Sweden as well as appearing briefly with New York Rangers in the NHL. Opponents have been lined up from Finland, Holland, Czechoslovakia and West Ger- many with hopes that these matches will be the forerunner to a European professional league. The London Lions will play at Wembley's Empire Pool. which can accommodate spectators. Coach Doug Barclay said he thought it would be three to five years before any British players were good enough to earn a place in the team.

The first workout of the year is slated for this coming Sunday morning at at the Civic left in the third period to snap a 3-3 tie and Toronto went on to defeat Montreal 5- 3. It was the first victory for the Leafs at the Forum since Jan. 30, 1971. Elsewhere in the league, At- lanta Flames scored two goals within 78 seconds in the first period en route to a 4-3 victory over Boston Bruins, New York Rangers blanked St. Louis Blues 4-0, Pittsburgh Penguins clipped Minnesota North Stars 4-2, Chicago Black Hawks slammed Van- couver Canucks 50 and it was Philadelphia Flyers 5, Califor- nia Golden Seals 0. McDonald, a six foot, 185- pound native of Hanna, Alta., had not been playing that well early in the game against Montreal. During the second period, coach Red Kelly decided to sit the youngster out in favor of Eddie (The Entertainer) Shack. "I thought it was a good said McDonald. "I wasn't playing that well at the time. Eddie went out there and got us going. "I couldn't blame the coach for the move. If we are going to win. we are going to win as a team." 'McDonald said he has had scoring chances in his first three games with the Leafs but found himself "shooting right at the goaltenders." "Usually when you score a winning goal like that, it adds a lot of confidence. Last year I was scoring a bunch of goals and I expected to score here. I knew that I'd score if I kept on working." McDonald had to share some of the spotlight with goalie Eddie Johnston who stopped 27 of Montreal's 30 shots. "E. J. held us in there when we were having some noted coach Kelly. "I thought he really played well in the second period." In Atlanta, Leon Rochefort and Curt Bennett beat Boston goalie Gilles Gilbert at and respectively in the first period sending the Flames to their first win ever over the Bruins. Rochefort added another goal in the second period and Chuck Arnason, acquired from the Canadiens' organiza- iion last spring, scored the game winning goal at of the final period. In New York, Rod Gilbert, benched for disciplinary rea- sons Sunday, scored his 271st NHL goal to move within one of the club record held by Andy Bathgate. "You've got to play the game to Gilbert said after the game, an obvious reference to the benching for being late for a team meeting. The North Stars got off to a good start in their game at Bloomington, Minn., with the Penguins. Bill Goldsworthy scored 30 seconds after the opening whistle but it was all downhill for Minnesota after that as they dropped their third game of the season. The North Stars, third in the NHL West last year, are eighth this season with one point in four games. NOW OPEN Boys and Girls Skate Exchange Sharpened Shined New Laces Sanitized Just Arrived!

I CAN SENSE WHEN THEY Jets break streaJ THE CANADIAN PRESS Bobby Hull finally knows What it feels like to win at Boston Garden, at least as a player-coach with Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. "This game gives us a big said Hull who picked up an assist Wednesday night as the Jets defeated New England Whalers 3-1. The Jets, who scored three unanswered goals in the third period, had lost six in a row on Boston league games and three in the playoffs last year. In the other WHA game. Houston Aeros got two goals each from Mark Howe and Paul fifth and whip Vancouver Blazers 7-2. The contest was played before fans in Vancouver. "We weren't really pointing for this game." Hull said. "But we had lost two on the road and knew we had to win this one to have any kind of a record starting out the season.'' The Whalers took a 1-0 lead in the first period when Tommy Williams intercepted a pass and scored just 22 seconds after the opening faceoff. However. Danny Johnson tied the score on a two-on-one break at of the third period. Chris Bordeleau added another Winnipeg goal less lhan two minutes later and Norm Beaudin got the in- surance marker into an empty net after the Whalers pulled goalie Al Smith. It was the first defeat at home for the Whalers in their last 15 games, including com- petition last year. The sec-ii ml- Aeros at' all behind Saints in Vancouv points. Thf W East Di points.
