Closed Soviets say they were had as Team Canada triumphs By IAN MacLAlNE TORONTO (CP) Team Canada coach Billy Harris and those Canadians who arrange international hockey schedules might do well to set up more dates at Maple Leaf Gardens. Team Canada 74 romped to a 4-1 win over the Soviet Union national team Thursday, marking the second time in a row that a Canadian professional side has knocked off a Russian club at the Gardens. In 1972. Team Canada, made up of National Hockey League all-stars, won by an identical only game they won in Canada. Normally a bastion of NHL sophistication, a sellout crowd of almost cheered wildly at the Canadians from the World Hockey Association who moved into a 3-0 lead and were rarely pressed afterwards. Bobby Hull, Andre Lacroix, Ralph Backstrom and J.C. Trembiay scored for the Canadians and Alexander Yakushev tor the Russians. The only time, the Russians threatened was early in the third period when they had an apparent goal disallowed by Canadian referee Tom Brown. Team Canada was ahead 3-1 when Brown ignored the red goal light that flashed moments after Vladimir Petrov ap- parently beat goaltender Gerry Cheevers. "That wasn't a disputed said Soviet coach Boris Kulagin in a post-game interview. "It was an undisputed goal." Harris said the Soviets could count the goal, "and that would make the score 4-2." Brown wasn't sure he had made the right call, but after consulting with the goal judge and his linesman, he ruled no goal. The Russians asked him to reconsider his decision after re- viewing the play on a television monitor beside the Russian bench. Brown refused, an action which later was commended by Vern Buffey, WHA referee-in-chief responsible for co- ordinating the officials for this eight-game series that resumes Saturday afternoon in Winnipeg. Team Canada holds a one-game lead after two games following a 3-3 tie Tuesday at Quebec City. "There's no way they (referees) can rely on television replays for said Buffey, adding that he thought Brown had called an "excellent game." Asked later if he had considered pulling his team off the ice after the disputed goal. Kulagin said: "No. We have high re- spect for spectators and are well aware that they pay to see the game." Team Canada could have doubled the score except for the superb goaltending of Valdislav Tretiak. Yakushev ended Canadian goalie Gerry Cheever's shutout bid at of the second period. The Canadians, employing a four-line system that allows them to skate with the younger Soviet players in short, quick bursts, still are not favorites to win the series. But their crowding tactics appear to have upset the pat- terned Soviet system and, unlike the 1972 squad, this Cana- dian team is not adverse to laying on the stick and elbows in the corners. Referee Brown, as did Josef Kompalla of West Germany in the first game, ignored many of the infractions. But Brown called a penalty shot for Canada's Mike Walton when he was hauled down in the second period by defenceman Valeri Vasilyev. However, the WHA scoring king's slapshot went into Tre- tiak's pads. Just before the period started, Cheevers' father-in-law, John Giacomi, apparently suffered a heart attack in the stands behind the Team Canada bench. He was in serious condition in hospital. Gordie Howe was taken to hospital after the first period with rib injuries, but x-rays showed no breaks and the 46- year-old winger was expected to be ready for the next contest. Whether Harris decides to sit out hockey's elder statesman in Saturday's game won't be known until the Team Canada coach discloses his lineup for the weekend match, possibly late today. Soviet winger Juri Lebedev was cut for several stitches on his forehead and Canada's Andre Lacroix had a split in the middle of his head, inflicted near the 16-minute mark of the third period by Alexander Maltsev. Lacroix and his team-mates argued to no avail that a five- minute major penalty should have been called for drawing blood, but absence of the Russian centre star set the stage for Tremblay's goal, at It was a lazy shot from the blueline that deflected high into the net off defender Viktor Kuznetsova. Lacroix and Hull assisted. Backstrom's goal came at of the first period, and was set up by Mark Howe and his father, Gordie. Lacroix scored at the mark of the first with help from John McKenzie and Trembiay. Hull got his third goal of the series at of the second pe- riod with help from Lacroix and McKenzie. Then Yakushev, easily the most dangerous of the Russian attackers, scored while Cheevers was lying out of the play to the right of the Canadian net. Valdimir Shadrin and Yuri Lebedev set him up. Canada outshot the Russians 33-30, with their widest margin in the second period, 16-8. Father-in-law suffers heart attack Brown Cheevers' joy short-lived TORONTO (CP) News that Gerry Cheevers' father- in-law had suffered a heart at- tack cast a shadow over the Team Canada dressing room Thursday night moments after a 4-1 victory over the .Soviet Union in the second of their eight-game series. Cheevers. who reached the -oom late because he was hon- ored after the game as Can- ada's top player, left quickly, escorted by a policeman. "Sorry, fellas, no questions nlease." said Cheevers. who is not expected to play Saturday ufternoon at Winnipeg in the third game of the series. Cheevers" father-in-law. John Giacomi. was in serious in hospital. The news delayed the of Team Canada coach Silly Harris at a news -onference with Gordie Howe Boris Kulagin, Russian lead coach. Canada's players refused to referee Tom Brown of Scarborough. Ont.. who ruled that a Russian shot ?ariy in the third period did not go in the net. A television "eplay appeared to show- otherwise. If the shot had :ounted. Canada would have led only 3-2. Captain Pat Stapleton was firm. "ft didn't go in. The referee said it didn't go in. ft didn't go in." He agreed with Brown's decision not to view the replay. "If you wanted to referee the whole game by replays, I guess you could call a lot of penalties, too. But that's not the way it's done." Forwards Andre Lacroix and Bruce MacGregor described the game as much tougher physically than the opening game, a 3-3 tie Tues- day night at Quebec City. "The ice was soft, the kind that wears you down." said MacGregor. a diligent defen- sive standout. "Right now. I'm exhausted. But a good night's rest and we'll be ready Saturday afternoon." Harris said he anticipated several changes for Satur- day's game, but he wouldn't say what the shifts will be. Among those likely to be missing is Gordie Howe, who played two shifts and set up Canada's opening goal before retiring with bruised ribs. He was released from hospital after x-rays showed no breaks. Maybe I'm getting too old for this game." said the 46- year-old veteran, who receiv- ed a thunderous standing ova- tion from the 16.485 fans before the game.

That left his son, Mark, and Ralph Backstrom to concentrate on penalty-killing, where they did a superb job. I don't think we had a sag." said Stapleton. "Maybe it looked like that when we were getting the penalties, but it didn't feel that way." Mike Walton, who was beaten by Vladislav Tretiak on a second-period penalty shot, gave the Russian net- minder full credit for the save. "I thought I might try to pull him out. but the ice was bumpy so I decided to shoot it. He was further out than I thought and the angle was covered. He made an outstanding save. He made several."

Russians TORONTO (CP) The So- viet Union national hockey team may spoil a planned trip to Moscow by Tom Brown of Scarborough, Ont. Brown, 34, refereed Thurs- day's game between the Rus- sians and Team Canada and the visitors weren't im- pressed. Boris Kuiagin. coach of the Russian they lost 4-1 to Team said in a post- game interview that "fortu- nately, this official will not work the series again." Kulagin was incensed by a third-period decision which apparently robbed the Rus- sians of a goal that would have made the score 3-2. The Russian coach said the goal wasn't disputed, "it was an undisputed goal." But it didn't count because Brown said he didn't see the puck go into the net. "I didn't see the puck go into the net." said Brown. "I asked the linesmen and they didn't see it go in either. "The goal judge hesitated in putting the light on and when he hesitated that was it. There was no way I was going to call it a goal, i explained to the Russians what I saw and that was it." Brown referees Ontario Ma- jor Junior A hockey and has been asked to officiate in the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Associ- ation. He says he is going to Mos- cow and hopes to referee a game there, but Kuiagin says he have any parl of thai While replays of the in- adent on television appear show ihc puck in the net. Vern HuUey. referee-in-chief of the WHA. said "Jtiere's no way we're gojng lo re3y on replays." He said Brown had done 'a emit job' and he was satis- lied. Coach Billy Harris ol Team probably had the so- lution He s You be the judge It looks like the puck is under the crossbar and partially in the net. The goal, although disputed, didn't count.
