Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdnttdoy, 21, THE LETH1RIDCE HERAID 13 Solid Netminding Sparks Vancouver Win Former Canadiens Return Home By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Montreal Forum is usually an unfriendly rink for meet National Hockey League players but at least one Minne- sota North Star player is cer- tain to feel at home tonight in a game against Montreal Cana- diens. He is defenceman Ted Harris, win toiled last season with the Canadiens when they missed the Stanley Cup playoffs (or the first time in years. "Somebody once said, you have DO friends or the ice and I Harris said Tuesday. "I was lucky to play on four Stan- ley Cup teams (with Montreal) and was in the final in the other. Last season we had prob- lems when the spirit wasn't the same." Harris will be one of three former Canadiens playing against his former team-nubs tonight, The others are goalie Gump Wors ley and centre Bobby Rousseau. But Harris and Rousseau will be returning to the Forum for the first time since joining the North Stars in an off-season trade that sent them to Minnesota for Claude Larose and Bill Collins. Harris came to the Canadiens from Cleveland Barons of the American League in 1963 along PHIL ESPOSITO The Boston star is off to a fast start with first place In the NHL (coring point) In his first four games. HaU Of Fame Member Dies LONDON AP) Ted (Kid) Lewis, an iron man who fought more than 400 times and a soft man who spent his ..money to take poor children to the sea- shore, died Tuesday. The one- time world welterweight cham- pion and member of boxing's Hall of Fame, was 76. Lewis began his fight career BS a bantamweight in 1910 and before he was through in 1929 had become so proficient at his profession that he was taking on light heavyweights and heavy- weights. Savard Feels Fine MONTREAL (CP) De- fencemau Serge Savard of Montreal Canadiens gave his right leg its first full-scale test Tuesday since last March. He said he was satisfied with the result. Savard broke his leg last March during a National Hockey League game here against New York Rangers. He resumed skating two weeks ago, but scrimmaged with his team- mates for the first time since the accident Tuesday. After the scrimmage Savard said he had DO pain, no fear and no problems. Mikita Must Sharpen Form CHICAGO (AP) Stan Mk- Ita is back in the Chicago Black Hawks lineup but still has to sharpen his form. Mikita made his season debut Sunday night after being side- lined with, a neck aitefint. The veteran National Hockey League centre mounted a couple of threats in the Hawks' 2-2 tie with St. Louis Blues. Boys' and Girls' SKATE EXCHANGE SHARPENED SHINED NEW LACES SANITIZED PAIR APPROX.

Store Fischler's Inside Hockey CHATTING with Gump Worsley is like sticking your head in a vat of freshly-made carbonated soda water. You're inevitably going to be splattered pleasantly, of those zingy bub- bly verbs. T Worsley, the Wimpish Minnesota North Stars goalie, 'sprays his humor in- all directions. Some- times it's even inner-directed; like when he's talking about his abused profession of goaltending. "People who run the said Gump, "Don't even know what we are. The rulebook only says that each team is allowed to dress 17 men plus two goalies." Despite a nervous breakdown two years ago be- cause of air travel, and a philosophical breakdown last year because of the Canadiens' desire to send him to the minors, Worsley is in love with the uni- verse this year. He should be. The North Stars are paying him more money than he received during his halcyon days in New York and Montreal. In Minneapolis- St. Paul he is something of the patron saint of shinny. "They treat you better in expansion Worsley explained, "Especially when you're a well- known player. There aren't too many like us so when they get one they try to make him feel good." When Gump walked out on Sammy Pollock and the Canadiens in the middle of last season it was a guts move. Worsley knew he was over-age (40) as gpaltenders go; and he knew, at best, he was forcing his way out of Montreal, his home town. To Gump that was irrelevant. He was being told by Pollock that he wasn't first-rate and Worsley knew otherwise. He also sensed that Claude Ruel was a flash-in-the-pan coach who hadn't even the remotest idea how to handle men. "People have asked me whether I got along with said Worsley. "How can I answer that lie never talked to me." Losing the Gump cost the Canadiens their first playoff berth in 22 years. The move ripped the Montreal club with a brand of dissension that could carry over into the current season because many of Worsley's close friends are still Habs. "I didn't chuckle that much just because Min- nesota made it and Montreal Gump went on. "After all, I was pretty friendly, with guys like John Ferguson and Terry Harper. Playoff money is big money. You don't like to see your friends lose that kind of dough." Worsley's new coach, Jack Gordon will be a tonic to the Gump. They are old buddies; members of the New York Rangers Alumni Association. Laconic and temperate, something of a Shinny U Thant, Gordon, is the perfect mentor for Worsley. Jack has the advantage of knowing how ex-Ranger coach Phil Watson mistreated the Gump and Gordon will simply do the opposite. Once, Watson accused Worsley of carrying an oversized load along the NHL highways. "You've got a beer-belly" Watson said, getting down to specifics. The Gump laughed at the thought of it. "I told he recalled, "That I drink nothing but Scotch." A full season with the North Stars' weak defence could very well inspire Worsley to even harder stuff. One of these days he no doubt will do a take- off on a classic line he delivered when playing on Broadway. A reporter asked Worsley at the time which team gave him the most trouble. Without blinking an eyelash, Gump replied: "The Danny Murtaugh Captures Honors NEW YORK (AP) Danny Murtaugh was named today The Associated Press' National jeague Manager of 1970, a year in which his low-key leadership and uncanny juggling of a jatchwork pitching staff guided P i 11 s b u r g h to the National League East title. It was the third Manager-of- the-Year award for Murtaugh, who has never managed any big league club except Pittsburgh. He won in 1958, his first full season as manager, and in the Pirates' world championship year of Murtaugh retired at the end of the 1964 season because of ill health but remained with the Pirates to scout nnd work with the farm clubs until he became manager again in a surprise movo this year. "Naturally I have to be very well Murtaugh said of lu's latest honor. "I would have to say it's a great surprise. I thought there were a lot of oth- ers who did tremendous jobs with their clubs." The 53-y e a r -o 1 d Murtaugh, who succeeded Larry Shepheard as boss this year, got to the major leagues with Philadelphia Phillies in 1941. He stayed with the Phillies until he went into the service in 1944. Upon his return from the service he played for Philadel- phia, the old Boston Braves and a couple of minor league teams before going to the Pirates in 1948 for one of his best seasons. He hit .290, drove in a career high 71 runs and led NL second basemen in pulouts, assists and double plays. with John Ferguson to give some muscle to a talented bu otherwise peace-loving Montrea team. Ferguson, ironically, re- tired this season to enter the clothing business. Jude Drouin, t Montrea farmhand last year, also is ex pected to be in the lineup for Minnesota but North Stars coach Jackie Gordon is unde- cided about his choice of goalie Cesare Maniago or Gilles Gilbert. Tlie Canadiens will go with the same lineup that lost 1-0 to New York Rangers Sunday However, coach Claude Ruel is considering a change In goalia to Phil Myre from Rogatien Va chon. Myre played some of his best games against the North Stars last season. The Canadiens can move into first place with a win over the North Stars, two points ahead a Boston Bruins who are idle bul the Bruins will have two games in hand. Serge Savard, Montreal's young defenceman, tested Ms right leg in a scrimmage Tues- day, his first since last March when he broke tine leg in a game against Uw Rangers. "I'm truly Savard said after the test. "I could make my turns pretty good and now all that's left is to get into playing condition." In a single game Tuesday night, Vancouver Canucks got some solid net minding from Charlie Hodge and handed Call- fomia Golden Seals a 2-1 defeat their fifth straight loss this sea- son. HODGE STOPS 31 Hodge kicked out 34 shots be- fore the fans and lost his shutout bid with less than two minutes to play when Dick Ma- tiussi scored. Vancouver scored both their goals in the second period .when Wayne Maki got a power-play goal past California goalie Gary Smith at the 24-sec- ond mark. Andre Boudrias scored less than two minutes later. The Vancouver victory was the second for the Canucks in seven games, fte most games played so far this season by anv NHL team. The win moved ttie team into a fourth-place tie with Detroit Red Wings, who have played six games. Following a scoreless first pe- riod, Maki fired his shot from 20 feet for his third goal of the season on a pass from Orland Kurtenbach after be dug the puck out of a swarm of players in the corner. Boudrias then banged in his Biird goal of the season at when he shovelled a shot to the Far corner after taking a pass Tom Rosaire Paiement. CANUCKS DOMINATE Vancouver dominated the hird period, firing 11 shots at Smith but Matiussi got a break at 18.43 when a pass from Den- lis Hextall found him alone in front of the Vancouver net. The Seals play again tonight when they meet St. Louis Blues at Oakland. In two other games, Toronto Maple Leafs play the Rangers New York and'pitts- burgh Penguins are in Los An- geles to meet the.Kings. Meanwhile, George Arm- strong, the 40-year-old former Leafs captain, has announced his retirement again. Arm- strong announced his retirement the last three seasons but changed his mind later. He said, however, he intends to make it stick this time. VANCOUVER 2 CALIFORNIA 1 First Period No scoring. Penal- ties Hampson Cal Rizzutto V Muloln Cal Second Period I.

Important Struggle Faces Lions Tonight VANCOUVER (CP) It's Manitoba Day at Empire Stad- ium tonight, and British Colum- bia Lions are willing to let for- mer Manitoba residents and Prairie visitors take over every- thing but the football game. The Lions, down but not quite out after five straight defeats, can still make the Western Football Conference playoffs by closing out their season with three straight victories, starting tonight over Winnipeg Blue Bombers. A win would pull them t o within two points of third-place Calgary Stampeders and set the stage for a Calgary-B.C. clash and the Lions would be tied with Calgary, each with one game left, Lions against Saskat- chewan Roughriders and Cal- gary against Winnipeg. Key game in the Lions' play- off plan is Sunday's game in Calgary. If they finish in a tie for third place the winner of Sunday's game would get the nod since right now they've beaten each other once. But it all starts tonight against Winnipeg, and Blue Bomber coach Jim Spavita] says his team finally is starting to roll-despite its record of two wins and 11 losses. "We've finally got some peo- ple who believe in our philoso- Spavital said Tuesday. "It took a while, but we've fi- nally run off the ones who wouldn't pay the price." "We've demonstrated all sea- son that our method is said Spavital. "Just look at the pride and enthusiasm this team has retained." Despite their record, the Bombers haven't looked bad in their last three starts. They beat Ottawa, lost by nine points to Saskatchewan and by only three to Edmonton. Title Tilt Tonight The biggest game of the year will be held tonight in the Leth- bridge Minor Football League when the Stampeders will meet Uie Eskimos in the Champion- ship final. Game time is slated for seven o'clock at the Henderson Ball Park.

Namath On Shelf NEW YORK (AP) Joe Na- math, plagued but never stopped by. battered knees since becoming New York Jets quart- erback six years ago, will be sidelined for at least six weeks by a broken right wrist. Namath suffered the injury late in Sunday's 29-22 loss to Baltimore Colts. At first the in- jury was diagnosed as a jammed wrist but i-rays at a hospital showed Tuesday a frac- ture of the navfcula bone on the and the wrist was put in a cast. The navicular bone is a small bone at the base of the thumb. Jets physician Dr. James A. Nicholas said the condition of Namath, who had never missed a regular or post-season game since joining the Jets as a bonus baby in 1965, will b e continuously re-evaluated during the anticipated six-week recovery period. "If he were playing any other position, he'd be able to Dr. Nicholas added. But Namath is a quarterback and now the Jets, who have only a 1-4 record and are in deep trouble, are looking for help at the key position. Sec- ond-year pro Al Woodall moves into the starting role.
