Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Hawks add to west division lead Mikita paining other clubs By IAN MacLAINI! Canadian Press Staff Writer Stan Mikita started the season 'with a painful back, but the ones hurting are Chicago Black Hawk opponents in the National Hockey League. The Hawks' centre star scored once, the winner, and set up two other goals in a 5-2 win over Detroit Red Wings in the onlyNHL game scheduled Tues- day night. The win moved Chicago five points up in the West Division race over second-place Minne- sota North Stars and Pittsburgh Penguins. Tonight the Wings get an op- portuntiy to reverse the setback when they visit New York Rangers, the East Division lead- ers who have a one-point edge on Boston Bruins. The Bruins, with a disen- chanted Derek Sanderson in the lineup, take en the Stanley Cup champion Canadicns at Mont- real. fn other games, Vancouver Canucks are at Toronto Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres visit Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh en- ANDY CAPP WE'RE FOSMIN1 A 'WOMEN'S US% A1RS.CAPP WOULB CARE TO THE ---------------EVENIN10 I'D LOVE TO, BUT THIS ISN'T MY NIGHT'OFF....

Joe Crozier didn't like tire way his team was getting pushed around in recent games and said he was going to install a punching bag in the Swords' dressing room and retain the services of Rollie Schwartz, United States Olympic boxing coach. The Swords, West Division leaders, were down 3-1 in the second period when a donny- brook erupted on the Halifax Forum ice. Cincinnati re- grouped for the tic.

He's not ready to foresake hockey, but he'd probably give a lot for a remedy. The Czechoslovakian-bom star remembers when the pains first started to show, following a game against Montreal in Feb- ruary, 1963, after "I got cross- checked a couple of times in a row." "Ever since then I've had the pain at the base of my back." Last summer he visited the Msyo Clinic in Rochester but "they weren't able to pinpoint anything new." He said the ail- ment has been diagnosed as 'stretched ligaments and mus- cles." He stretched those ligaments and muscles against the Red Wings, setting up Chicago's sec- ond goal, by Doug Jarrett after Bobby Hull had got them away to an early lead, then scored their third midway through the second period that opened a 3-1 Hawk lead. IN THIRD PLACE His production moved him into third place in the NHL scoring race with 13 points, three behind the leader Boston centre Phil Esposito. In Montreal, where the fans respectfully refer to Mikita as Le Petit Diablo (the little the Brans are experi- encing problems with another of their centres, Derek Sanderson. He's been in and out of the Boston doghouse on numerous occasions, chiefly because of salary disputes. But that's not tha case this time; ire's just fed up with hockey. The 25-year-old from Niagara Falls, Ont, said in an interview Tuesday the sport has become 'all work." "The schedule's too long and the people running the game are too money-hungry." He said that while most of the plavers are married and "need hockey, Robins 2-0. no matter wiiat there Crozier said before Tuesday's Mts before we meet a u wi he Voyageurs in Cincinnati game he was fed up with the way other AHL teams Gaudaur savs no to Larks TORONTO (CP) Jake Gau- Braves continued their unbeaten; daur.

The Als lost 19-18 and Ak owner Sam Berger said Monday he was lodging the protest on grounds that game officials failed to call an offside penalty against Winnipeg on a crucial fourth-quarter play. Berger said films of the play in question showed two Winni- peg moved offside be- fore Montreal snapped the ball. "In the case of the play in Berger said in Mont- real, "both tlie defensive tackle and middle linebacker of the Winnipeg team were encroach- ing on the line of scrimmage, an action which stopped the Montreal drive on the Winnipeg 27-yard line. "This prevented further op- portunity for us to score touchdown, field goal or a single point." In a prepared statement, the CFL commissioner said his de- cision to disallow tlie protest was based on CFL bylaws, par- agraph 1, section 2, which pro- vides that a protest shall not be based on a judgement call by an official. 'The result of the game, therefore, remains unchanged." >yageurs were said. "By that time we should be ready for those big lumber- jacks you Nova Scotians have on your team." LESSONS START TODAY Schwartz is scheduled to start lessons today, but the Halifax fans got some idea of what is in store Tuesday night. Tony Featherstone, Germaine Gagnon and Larry Robinson for the Voyageurs and John Gould for Cincinnati were the first-pe- riod marksmen, setting the stage for the scoreless second- period brawl. Robinson, Ron Busniuk and Murray Anderson were the Nova Scotia principals against Swords' Reg Fleming, Rick Dudley and Keke Mortson. All were assessed fighting majors and Dudley was slapped with a the do." he were lot of other things I can Wednesday, October 57, 1971 THE lETHBRIDGt HERALD 9 MAYOR ANDERSON BUYS FIRST BRICK Mayor Andy Anderson is seen purchasing the first brick from Instant Ice Council.

"There are a lot of things I should be doing besides playing hockey. No, getting married is not one of them." FED UP WITH FAN'S Sanderson also said he was fed up with the Boston fans, and the travelling involved in pro hockey, and would retire, "probably soon." Once it was fun to play in the Boston Gar- jden. "Now, if you're not ahead 9-1 at the end of the first period, they're booing. They're expect- ing too much." Sanderson said the calibre of hockey had fallen badly tat "with all that travelling, you can't be up all the time." The Canadiens will be without forwards Pete Ms'hovlich, re- covering from a bout with bronchial pneumonia, and Marc Tardiff, on the limp with a swol- len foot.
