Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Canucks rally for deadlock WednMday, October 31, 1973 LETHBRIOQE HERALD No red carpet for Red Wings By GERRY SUTTON Canadian Press Staff Writer If Detroit Red Wings were looking tor pity, Maple Leaf Gardens was the wrong place to visit. Toronto Maple Leafs show- ed no sympathy for the staggering Wings, shutting them out 7-0 Tuesday night while holding a 45-26 margin in shots. And the slumping New York Rangers didn't do much better, getting a 3-3 tie with Vancouver Canucks to remain in sixth place in the National Hockey League. In the other game, Los Angeles Kings scored two unanswered goals in the third period to nip St. Louis Blues 3- 2.

Outscored 174 in their last four games.the Detroit brass has been doing its best to deny reports of dissension in the club and that general manager Ned Harkness is on the way out. Owner Bruce Norris said Tuesday in a telephone inter- view from Florida that Hark- ness will remain in his position. "I have complete con- fidence in Ned and in Quebec in shape, starting to come CANADIAN PRESS After Quebec Nordiques de- feated Toronto Toros in a World Hockey Association game earlier this month. Jac- ques Plante said: "And we're not in shape yet." Following a 5-4 Quebec win last Friday over Minnesota Fighting Saints, the coach and general manager of the Nor- diques said his club was start- ing to come along. As if to prove his point, the Nordiques rallied with five goals in the second period- after trailing defeat Los Angeles Sharks 6-4 in one of three WHA games Tuesday night. The win was Quebec's third in a row and moved the club into sole possession of second place in the East Division, one point behind New England Whalers. Houston Aeros whipped Minnesota 6-1 and Chicago Cougars downed Winnipeg Jets 4-1 in other matches. The Cougars' first game at home after nine on the their hold on fourth place in the East with 11 points, one behind Cleveland Crusaders. Edmonton Oilers lead the West Division with 12 points, three more than Houston, Winnipeg and Minnesota. Four of Quebec's goals were scored by players who weren't with the club last season. Jeannot Gilbert, with Hers hey Bears of the American Hockey League last year, got his second and third goals. Serge Bernier, with Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, scored his eighth: and Dale Hoganson. formerly with Montreal Canadiens of the NHL, fired his second. Marc Tardif. also with Mon- treal last season, scored his first WHA goal for the Sharks in the opening period. "They lulled us to sleep, said coach Terrv Slater of the Sharks. "We went to sleep and then they struck, Quebec just sat back and waited for the breaks." Revelstoke teams too powerful The Revelstoke High School girls' and boys' volleyball teams showed to 14 southern and central Alberta squads their over-whelming strength on the courts recently. The British Columbia clubs took part in the second annual University of Lethbridge In- vitational High School Volleyball Tournament last weekend and breezed through to walk away with both the girls' and boys' titles. The male varsity team earned their title by capturing six straight victories in the double-knockout draw. Enroute to victory, Revelstoke dropped Taber W. R. Myers 15-4 and 15-8 in their best-of-three match; defeated Vauxhall 15-3. 12-15 and 15-11; dropped Medicine Hat McCoy 15-5 and 15-11; dumped Strathcona-Tweedsmuir 15-0 and 15-12; decisioned Vauxhall again 15-6 and 15-10; bested Taber Myers again 15-6, 9-15 and 15-0: and finally edge. Lethbridge Winston Churchill 10-15, 17-15 and 15-13. Fort Macleod won the con- solation trophy in the two-day event with 15-8 and 15-10 vic- tories over Irvine. Meanwhile the distaff squad also went undefeated to win their championship title. During the two-day double- knockout event, the Revelstoke girls whipped Ir- vine and Taber Myers twice while edging Okotoks and Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute. Slater said his defence gave them shots in front of the net "over and over." "They call us stead we're more like Mickey Mouse." Two goals by Joe Har- third and fourth of the led Chicago to victory. The Cougars, although outshot 31-28, scored a goal in each of the first and second periods and two in the third. Ron Snell spoiled goalie Cam Newton's shutout with his first goal at of the se- cond period. In Houston, the Aeros got four unanswered goals in the third period, two by Murray Hall, to beat the' Fighting Saints The Fighting Saints, with only a win in their last five games, were outshot 44-22 by the hardskating Aeros. Pronghorns beat Oldies The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns' overall physical conditioning was just too much for the "Oldies" as they cruised to an easy 114-64 victory in the first ever "Alumni Game" Tues- day night. Pronghorns. who used the "Alumni Game" as a tune up for the Tri-University Classic to be staged in Calgary this weekend, were just too fast for the Gary Williams, a former Lethbridge Community College Kodiak star, led the Pronghorns with an im- pressive 32-point performance while second-year man Danny Court added 27. Don MacLain hooped 12 points for the "Oldies" who trailed 51-26 at the half. Things just not clicking for Broadway Blues Rangers are in very bad shape New York Times Service NEW YORK During Sun- day's 7-2 manhandling of the New York Rangers by the Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden, a ranger fan called a mock plea to the Penguins, "be nice, guys, give us a What he meant was that the Rangers need help any way they can get it. With four straight losses, they have slumped in one week from the top of the east division of the National Hockey League to sixth place, just one point away from seventh. As Ed Gioacomin said, "we can't go anywhere but up." But when? And how? The Rangers, who made it as far as the Stanley Cup semi-finals last season, know what's wrong; the trouble is that they are agonizingly un- able to cope with it. They are pressing, and in pressing they make the diastrous mistake of falling apart. When a hockey team gets in the hole and becomes anxious, each player tends to feel he personally can bail out the club. So he plays harder; he rushes headlong into situations with no one to pass to. with no protection behind him. Multiply that by half a dozen players, and you have anarchy on ice. Individuals simply cannot beat a team. Giacomin. who relieved Gilles Villemure in goal after one period Sunday night, 5-TRENQ7K V ATYOUR LOCAL NO. 1 CHOPPING CENTRE ORR KARATE KUNG FU STUDIOS 258 A- 13th St. N. PHONE 328-1241 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA analyzed the problem this way: "we're sending too many men in. All three forwards get caught too deep, and then what happens? They (the other team) get two-on- one breaks, even three-on-one breaks. "We've got to be patient. When you're 'way behind you can't tie it up in one shot, like in football. You've got to keep pecking away, one goal at a time." Giacomin said that after Saturday night's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders, "I couldn't sleep, and I'm sure a lot of other guys couldn't either." "We've got to get back to our basic he added. "If we're not scoring, at least we can make sure they don't score either. Try for a nothing-nothing tie and wait for the breaks, and maybe we'll pick up momentum." Vic Hadfield, the New York captain, said the team has "stunk" because they have been trying to play as in- dividuals. "A he illustrated, "gets the puck behind their (the opposition's) net and tries to stickhandle it through the whole team. Everybody is too anxious to go. with nobody to pass to, instead of slowing down. "Individual players that's not our style. Our style is to play as a whole team, using short and long passes, know- ing where everybody is and what he's doing. "We've got to get back to our own style of basic hockey go up and down the wings, let the center forecheck. If we play any other way it's not the other team that beats us we are just beating ourselves." The Rangers' new coach. Larry Popein, who has been presiding over this 3-4-1 record, has maintained a wry perspective. "It's better to go through this now, at this time of the season, instead of later in the he said. everyone else running the team." said Norris, who was attending the NHL governors and general managers meeting. The Leafs, using six players they didn't have last year, scored five goals in the second in 40 their way to their fifth win in 10 starts. They moved into a second- place tie with Montreal Cana- diens and Buffalo Sabres, all with 12 points, and one behind leading Boston Bruins in the East race. Ron Ellis scored twice for the Leafs, his first and second of the year, and defenceman Jim McKenny contributed a goal and two assists. Rookie Ian Turnbull. formerly of Ot- tawa '67s in the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series, opened scoring with his first goal of the year at the 14-second mark of the middle period. Before the game, defenceman Gary Bergman said: "If we lose anybody it affects us a lot both of our young goaltenders (Terry Richardson and Doug Grant) are going to be good ones. But. being this young they make a team tends to be thinking of protecting them so much that we're afraid to be offensive enough." Bergman proved the point just when the buzzer sounded to end the first period. When Toronto defenceman Bob Nee- ly scored a one-punch knockdown over Tom Mellor. Bergman was given a game misconduct for being the third man in the fight. That left the Wings with four defencemen Brent Hughes. Thommie Bergman. Larry Johnston and Mellor. In Vancouver. Don Lever and Bobby Schmautz scored two goals in less than a minute early in the third period to give the Canucks the tie before 15.570 fans. The Rangers, one point be- hind the fifth-place Canucks, now have four defeats and a tie after five games. They led 3-1 on goals by Ted Irvir e. Vic Hadfield and Gene Carr before the Canucks rallied. Butch Gormg's third goal of the season at 17-28 of the third period gave Los Angeles its third win in nine games. The Kings share third place with Chicago Black Hawks and Pittsburgh Penguins, all with eight points, and one behind second-place Atlanta Flames. Action resumes tonight with Pittsburgh at Montreal, Boston at Minnesota North Stars and California Golden Seals visiting Buffalo.

Red Wings has trouble with the Leafs as they dropped a 7-0 decision. The wait is over, ducks, geese here By JOE BALLA Herald Staff Writer Those northern ducks and geese hunters everywhere have been watching for have finally arrived in southern Alberta. The vanguard of the birds made their appearance about a week ago. They were pushed southward by slow freezing conditions in the far north, and some brisk northerly winds in the more central parts of the province. A few of the flocks flew straight through and some stayed only overnight. The majority however, appear to be staying on. The capital structure irrigation reservoirs are the main staging areas. Early morning and late evening stubble shoots are the most productive. The birds should be patterned for a day or two before there is any attempt at moving in. Bulk of the birds are stick- ing to the region east of Lethbridge. But, St. Mary Reservoir near Spring Coulee has good, concentrations of both ducks and geese. Majori- ty are sticking fairly well to the northerly shore which is adjacent to Indian reserve territory. The reserve is out of bounds for whites. The strong west and northerly breezes call for a special alertness on the part of the shooter. The wind literally grabs at the out- stretched wings and wisks the bird away. WHITEFISH READY It's time to net for whitefish in southern Alberta again. The various irrigation groups started to slow up water flow in the main canals several weeks ago. The water is let down slowly so that the banks do not cave in and crumble. As the water recedes to the bottom of the canals, pools form in the low spots and below drops. A majority of these drops and pools have an abundance of lake whitefish. These fish are free for the taking, but a permit must first be obtained from the fish and wildlife office. Limit is 25 fish per day. Some rather un- conventional methods tor anglers like netting is permissible to take these fish. Some ditches have long stretches which are void of low spots. As a result, no fish The odd pike and even a trout or two may end up in some of the nets The irriga- tion reservoirs are all fed by mountain streams. The federal department of Indian affairs and northern development is pursuing a proposed program to mark special areas and byways across the country. If you know of any areas that are ol significance in the development of this country write: Hon Jean Chretien, Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. Ot- tawa. Describe the area as well as you can and note why it should be set aside, or considered. The earlier you write the better chance there is for inclusion. It's hoped that public hearings will be held in connection with the program Perhaps there's hope for that pet project of yours yet. mco AUTOMOTIVE CENTRE SNOW REGULAR FLYSNOwRAC OUR FINEST FIBERGLASS POLYESTER SNOW TIRE OUR FINEST 4 PLY POLYESTER CORD TIRES 23.44 25.44 23. 44 25.44 28.44 28.44 28.44 21.44 23.44 26.44 23.44 26.44 J blockwoll snow or regular No charge tor tire mounting FLYTE TRAC SNOW Fiberglass Belted for Strength Smooth Riding Polyester Cord Deep Biting Cleats for Traction No trade-in required PREMIUM V Longer M i ledge Outstanding Wear Modern Series Design Regular Tire Mileage Guaranteed MILES OR 3O MONTHS Fvnrv HALLMARK cftmos f, lifetime Quirflnton Hgnmsl road nship WITH- OUT LIMIT TO MONTHS OR MILES.
