Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, October 25, 1974 Be SUfe to VtoH Contra Village Mall during MEXICAN FIESTA DAYS ART WILLIAMS TRAVIL Pttont The Herald Sports LETHMHME OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. U MMM (4M) m-7411 Store Open 9 a.m. to p.m. Monday, Tuoaday, Wadnaaday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday. Cteaad Stan Fischler presents his hitparade of slams and socks over the years Flyers have set a trend towards blood and guts hockey I'm sorry to say but the Ontario "Investigation and Inquiry into Violence in Amateur Hockey" won't have any effect on decorum in the pro leagues now that the new season is un- derway. Thanks to the example set by Philadelphia's ferocious cup winning Flyers, every manager and coach in the NHL and WHA spent last summer digging out behemoths and assorted Gullivers who looked big enough to handle Dave Schultz. By December the riots should be taking place every other week. Disgusting as it may sound, the name of the game is gore, nor art, in most American cities and perhaps even a couple of Canadian ones too. Like it or not, we must face the fact that blood and guts same as stickhandling and shooting have been part of the woof and warp of hockey since the ancient shinny days of Newsy Lalonde and Bad Joe Hall. And since brutality seems so very important to many fans, I hereby sub- mit Fischler's hit parade of hockey slams and socks over the years. BIGGEST MOST VICIOUS MASS BRAWL: New York Rangers vs. Montreal Canadiens, March 16, 194? at Madison Square Garden. It started when Cal Gardner of New York poked out some of Ken Reardon's teeth. Eventually every player was involved, including stick swinging goalies Chuck Rayner and Bill Durnan. A special Manhattan police detail quelled the riot after a half hour of madness. BIGGEST, MOST VICIOUS ONE ON ONE FIGHT: Gor- die Howe of the Detroit Red Wings destroys Lou Fontinato of the Rangers at Madison Square Garden during the 1958-59 season. Although Fontinato started the bout by charging Howe from behind hurling the first flurry of punches, Howe conterat- tacked with a machine gun volley of devastating jabs that destroyed Fontinato's nose and his ego. MOST CONSECUTIVE FIGHT WINS IN ONE PERIOD: Henri Richard of the Montreal Canadiens outpointed Leo Labine, Jack Bionda and Fern Flaman in succession at Boston Garden, MOST CONSECUTIVE FIGHT LOSSES IN A CAREER: King Clancy with the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs claims he never won a bout despite his involvement in hundreds. MOST DECISIVE VICTORY, ONE ON ONE, PRE- EXPANSION: Harry Watson, Toronto Maple Leafs; flattens Murry Henderson of the Boston Bruins at Boston Garden during the 1948 Stanley Cup playoffs. MOST DECISIVE VICTORY, ONE ON ONE, Dave Schultz, Philadelphia Flyers, knocks out Montreal Canadiens rookie John Van Boxmeer with one punch last season at The Forum. BEST FIGHTING GOALIES: Pre Expansion Garry Lutnley, Detroit Red Wings; Expansion Gerry Cheevers, Cleveland Crusaders. TOUGHEST TEAMS: Pre Expansion Toronto Maple Leafs, 1947; Expansion Boston Bruins, 1970; Philadelphia Flyers, Present WORST STICK FIGHT: Cal Gardner, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Kenny Reardon, Montreal Canadiens, New Year's night, 1949 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Subsequently, NHL President Clarence Campbell slapped a bond on Reardon in February 1950 when he threatened to "get" Gardner again. MOST SUBTLE AND DANGEROUS SPEAR Doug Harvey, Montreal Canadiens ruptures the spleen of New York Rangers' center Red Sullivan in November 1956 at Madison Square Garden. Although Sullivan received the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church he recovered and played again for the Rangers. MOST OBVIOUS SPEAR Glen Skov, Detroit Red Wings, knifed the "R" off Max Bentley's Rangers' jersey during a New York Detroit game at Madison Square Garden in 1953-54 season. BEST FIGHTER IN THE PROS Garry Howatt, New York Islanders. MOST HORRIBLE EPISODE: Lou Fontinato of the Montreal Canadiens breaks his neck after ducking a charge by Vic Hadfield, New York Rangers, in The Montreal Forum dur- ing the 1962-63 season. MOST ONE SIDED DECISION OVER A REFEREE: Minnesota Fighting Saints goalie Mike Curran flattens referee Bob Sloan in 1974 Houston Minnesota playoff. BEST POLICEMEN: (four way tie) Bill Ezinicki, Toronto Maple Leafs; Ted Lindsay, Detroit Red Wings; John Ferguson, Montreal Canadiens and Dave Schultz, Philadelphia Flyers. MOST DETERMINED LOSING FIGHTER: Bryan Watson, Detroit Red Wings. MOST UNINTERESTED EXCELLENT FIGHTER: (Tie) Ken Hodge, Boston Bruins and Steve Vickers, New York Rangers. BEST LEFT-HANDED FIGHTER: Wayne Cashman, Boston Bruins. THE FIGHT THAT WON A PLAYOFF SERIES: John Ferguson, Montreal Canadiens, beats-up Ted Green, Boston Bruins, in the 1968 playoffs after which the Canadiens swept Boston in four straight games enroute to The Stanley Cup. THE FIGHT THAT LOST A PLAYOFF BERTH: Fontinato Howe, 1958-59. After Fontinato lost the bout, the Rangers began a tailspin that eventually landed them out of the playoffs while Toronto, trailing in fifth place, moved ahead and into fourth. It marked the making of Punch Imlach. BEST FIGHT OF THE FUTURE: Dave Schultz vs. Derek Sanderson. Schultz loses by a TKO.

Broncos face stiff test, Cougars, Kings pay visit By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor When the Lethbridge Broncos take to the ice tonight at eight o'clock they will have two thoughts in mind. Besides seeking to maintain a three game unbeaten string, the locals will be looking to improve on their position in the eastern division standings of the Western Canada Hockey League. At present the Broncos have seven points on three wins and a tie. They trail Brandon Wheat, Kings and Saskatoon Blades by just five points. However, the locals enjoy a three games in hand advan- tage over the Blades and two over the Wheat Kings. As well, the Broncos are only one point back of third place Regina Pats so are ac- tually in very good shape this early in the season. Coach Earl Ingarfield of the Broncos does not plan any line up changes for tonight's game with Victoria Cougars. Game time tonight is set for eight o'clock at the Sportsplex. Cougars and Broncos hooked up in a Tuesday night encounter last week but lit- tle was settled as the two clubs ska ted to a 3-3 stalemate. However, the game had its effect on the Broncos as it seemed to be the turning point in a somewhat lack lustre start. "That Victoria game seemed to bring the club said Ingarfield. The results of which were seen very clearly by over Bronco supporters Sunday night when they blasted Saskatoon 6-2. Delorme caught a puck in the right knee in the second period of the Saskatoon game, and although the knee was bruised, is expected to see action again tonight. A key to the Bronco successes of late has been netminder Lome Molleken. The lanky, veteran backstopper came to camp looking for the job as number one and earned it. Thus far he has shown every in- dication of keeping his job with out- standing work. Broncos will have an excellent chance to enhance their position in the standings even further when they play the Wheat Kings Sunday evening at seven in a four point game. The game itself is not worth four points in the standings. It simply means that a win would cut the Bronco Wheat King difference by two big points or widen it by another two, depending on the outcome. Ingarfield indicated his club will be ready. You might say its an early season moment of truth for the Broncos. No longer do the Broncos have to rely solely upon the line of Alex Tidey, Brian Tottier and Brian Sutter. These three still have to rate as the top offensive threat, to be sure, but Ingarfield is getting steady play from the other two lines, particularly that of Ron Delorme, Stan Jensen and Greg Woods. That unit, with some help from the pop- ular Archie Henderson, accounted for half of the Bronco goals Sunday, and should get better as the season progresses. Texaco [TEXACOI Canada Ltd.
