Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE LETH6RIDGE HERAlO Thursday, 7, VJ72 Third game ends in 4-4 deadlock Wednesday iamov, Tretiak give Team Canada nightmares ANDY CAPF WINNIPEG It Rus- sia's Valary Kharlamov is worth million on Ite basis of his play in Hie current hockey scries against Team Canada, then young Soviet goalie Vladis- lav Trotiak must be worth hnl( as much again. The 20-year-old Trotiak mes- merized the Canadians through two periods Wednesday night as the teams played to a 4-4 tie in the third game of the inter- national clash. The Russians won the first game in Montreal 7-3 in Mon- treal and Canada took the sec- ond 4-1 in Toronto Monday night. Tretiak's brilliant glove save off Paul Henderson early in the third period Wednesday night laycd a key role in producing tie. President Harold Ballard of 'oronto Maple Leafs of the Na- lonal Hockey League put the I million price tag on but Tretiak has been the utstanding player in the threo ames so far and he could be ie deciding factor in the eight- ame series that resumes in Friday night. Weaver's club hot Py THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "There's no reason to believe that we can't win 23 games in a row." Earl Weaver, Baltimore Ori- oles' manager insists that he isn't flipping his baseball cap. Optimistic as always, Balti- more's boss looked on tho sunny side despite a tough 4-3 loss to Detroit Tigers Wednes- day night that dropped Ms team to fourth place, two games behind, in the American League East, "We've spoiled them a said Weaver. "There are 23 to go and we've got to get hot, that's all there is to it." The Tigers 'held on to first place by an unstable half-game, looking over their shoulders at the Boston Red Sox. New York Yankees, who lost to the Red Sox 2-0 Wednesday night, dropped to third, 114 games be- hind the front-runners. While not much daylight opened in the East race, Oak- land Athletics opened some, room for themselves in the West by bombing second-place Chicago 9-1. The victory gave them a four-game lead over (he White Sox. Elsewhere in the American League, California Angels de- ted Kansas City Royals 3-1; Minnesota Twins blanked Texas Rangers 2-fl and Cleveland In- dians and Milwaukee Brewers split a twin Indians vinning the first game 4-3 and :he Brewers the nightcap 5-2, Not only are Eittsburgh Pi- rates trumping the rest of tlx National League East, but they're doing it with five aces Nothing illegal, mind you. It's just that Pittsburgh's pitching staff, usually overlooked, is starting to get some of the rcc ognition it deserves.

Elsewhere, Cincinnati Red beat Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 Montreal Expos trimmed York 'Mets 7-3, Fhiladelphi Phillies edged St. Louis Cardi rials 3-2 and San Francisco Gi ants trounced San Dieg Padres W.

Tve known abouc Mercedes-Benz fine reputation for years. I've admired them from a distance. I've travelled as a passenger in lliem. Unbelievably com- fortable, and the finish is superb. "Some friends who own one arc always praising the way it handles. And I must admit I appreciate things that arc well-engineered and show good work- manship, like my watch and camera. "Of course, a is ex- pensive. But not really more than the car that I now own. And it is a good investment. "Well, why nor? Dammit, I'm going to buy the one car that I've always really wanted. Yes, I'm going to make this the year that I will finally own a This is the kind of thinking that our dealers quite often hear from new customers.

Wednesday night he turned' jack 38 shots, 32 of them in tho irst two periods before the "ast-skating Russians finally :ook away the play from the National Hockey League stars and held an 8-6 advantage in shots in the final 20 minutes. The Russian youth program was also instrumental in lifting 'he team from a 4-2 deficit lato in the second period on goals jy Yuri Lebedev and Alexander Bodunov. Erratic defensive play by Canada led to the other two Russian goals, by Vladimir Pet- rov and Kharlamov, while the Soviets were short-handed. It marked the third time in tliree games the Russian team has converted a Canadian power play to its own advan- tage. J. P. Parise, Jean Ratelle, Phil Esposito and Paul Hender- son were the Canadian marks- men. The fourth game on the West Coast will be carried nationally on the CBC television network starting at 6 p.m. MDT. SINDEN RELIEVED Canadian coach Harry Sinden seemed relieved after the game that his club had been able to salvage a tie. "We had our ups and downs, so did they just a super he said in a post-game interview. "It was a different type of game from Monday's but there were more mis- takes." Asked if the Canadians again folded under the intense skating of the well-conditioned Russians after commanding an early lead, Sinden said the team "was quite fresh to start the third period." If such was the case, then the Soviets' kid Bod- unov and Vyacheslav Anisin, a trio of 21-year-olds in their first year with the Soviet national the Canadian hockey dynasty, it is, in a precarious state. The youngsters owned the puck whenever they were on the ice and Canadian goalten- der Tony Esposito was hard- pressed to hold them off the Scoreboard In the final period. BENCH VETS The three appeared as a unit at the expense of veterans Eu- geny Zimin and Yuri Blinov, benched in favor of the youth movement by coach Vscvolod Bobrov. "We played them to get some experience for the young Bobrov said through an inter- preter. "That is why we brought them it was not just our aim to win." And he warned the Canadian reporters covering the series that the Russians "left some very capable young players in Moscow who will play for us there and we will lie stronger." Sinden, meanwhile, admitted he had learned much from the visitors. The former Boston Bruin coach said that should he return to the NHL he had "picked up some ideas I'd like to try." "They do a lot of things wo don't do. I can't see anything wrong with a lot of the things they do." Even if the Canadians win in Vancouver Friday, Sinden said he is not looking forward to go- ing into Moscow with a 2-1 lead for games Sent. 22, 24, 26 and 28. CANADA 4 RUSSIA FIRST PERIOD: 1.
