Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Schmautz was hot, Atlanta in first By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bobby Schmautz was having a so-so season, until Detroit Red Wings came along. The 28-year-old Saskatoon native entered Friday night's National Hockey League game with no goals and five assists in six regular-season contests. He quickly changed that with a four-point perfor- mance, including three goals, to lead Vancouver Canucks to an 8-3 home town triumph over the weak Red Wings before fans. For the rugged right winger, who had 38 goals and 33 assists last year, it was the third time in the NHL he has scored three goals in a single game. His outstanding season in 1972-73 also featured two four-goal efforts in separate games. In the only other game Fri- day night, Atlanta Flames took over first place in the West Division with a 3-1 win over California Golden Seals. CANUCKS GAIN The Canucks, who now have outscored their opposition 13-4 in winning all three games on home ice early this year, mov- ed within two points of first place in the East Division. Boston Bruins, Montreal Ca- nadiens and Buffalo Sabres share first with 10 points each, one more than Toronto Maple Leafs, and two ahead of Van- couver. It was the sixth loss against a tie and a win for the Wings who have been outscored 15-6 in their last two starts and 42- 30 this year. The Canucks took command quickly, scoring four goals be- fore the game was 14 minutes old. They took a 4-1 lead into the second period and increas- Toros rally to earn tie By THE CANADIAN PRESS It doesn't take long to review Tom Simpson's record in the World Hockey Associa- tion last season. In 58 league games with Ot- tawa Nationals, now Toronto Toros. the 21-year-old right winger managed only 10 goals and seven assists. He moved closer to that total this 11 when he picked up two goals and an assist Friday night as the Toros tied Win- nipeg Jets 3-3 in overtime. Simpson, 5-feet-ll and 190 pounds, now has eight goals- best in the two assists, well up in the points race In other games, Cleveland Crusaders downed Los Angeles Sharks 3-1 and Quebec Nordiques nipped Minnesota Fighting Saints 5-4. Simpson, member of Oshawa Generals in the On- tario Hockey Association Junior A series in 1971-72, scored both his goals in the third period as the Toros eras- ed a 3-0 deficit. Bobby Hull, his fifth, and Kelly Pratt, his first, scored in the second period to give Winnipeg a 2-0 lead. Dune Rousseau increased the margin to three early in the third before Simpson got two goals and Wayne Carleton the tying marker at 19.29, with Toronto goalie Gilles Gratton on the bench for an extra at- tacker In the 10-minute sudden- death overtime period, Simpson had an excellent op- portunity to get goal No 3 on a breakawav.

"1 wasn't thinking of any- thing Maybe I just had too much net to shoot at." Toronto coach Billy Harris was happy with his club's comeback. "It was amazing. Even more so when you consider our schedule since last Tuesday In the last 11 days, the Toros have played seven games and travelled from Toronto to the West Coast twice. The Toros outshot the Jets 41-35, although Winnipeg had a 5-3 margin in the overtime period. The tie moved the Jets into sole possession of first place in the West Division with nine points, one more than Edmon- ton Oilers. Toronto's point en- abled the club to move into a fourth-place tie with Chicago Cougars in the East, both with seven points, six behind leading New England Whalers.
