Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - April 6, 1990, Winnipeg, Manitoba 60 Winnipeg free april not declares Muckler continued from Page 59 supposed to Suhonen philosophies were just a Little heavy for oilers coach John Muckler yesterday after grew up playing and coaching in the old Eastern league a place where men were men and you get the for All intents and suggested Suhonen was full of Reindeer that not True and you know Muckler said we believe the jets Are a very Good hockey team and they proved it in game we have our work Cut out for us and i said right from the Start that this would be a Long that but one gets the distinct impression that history May play a greater role in this series than the oilers have after hanging around North lands coliseum for a week and especially spending a few Days Reading the local one gets the distinct feeling that the jets Are nothing More than a nuisance that will be dispatched quickly so that the real Issue Calgary Edmonton can be resolved once but wednesday night a number of things happened that had to change the oilers when Edmonton tried to intimidate the tiny jets didst Back As a matter of people like Paul Doug Evans and even Phil Sykes roughed up the oilers pretty Macdermid drove Guys like Esa Tikkanen and Joe Murphy to distraction and never before had oilers taken As Many flagrant dives As they did i think they have believed All the things they have heard for Many Suhonen despite what their coaches say in the this is a team that has always approached us but they Arent arrogant right they lost the first game and today they Are

roasted in both daily news papers while to and radio announcers also took their potshots giving up six goals on 29 shots Teppo Numminen had scored the jets seventh goal into an empty net Doest sit Well in this it bugs but what happened was my he i have to think Back on what i did wrong and think i have to be ready tomorrow in fairness to the Edmonton the 23yearold Ranford was indeed Horri ble wednesday he let 50foot and 60foot shots by jets defence men Dave Ellett and Moe Mantha beat him and he didst make an important save As the oilers dropped the smythe division semifinal opener Billy is a Good oilers head coach John Muckler said after yesterday mornings hell play tonight tomorrow with Grant Fuhr Billy is our 1 jets head coach Bob Murdoch agreed that Ranford would rebound Ranford is a Good Murdoch we know hell play he was struggling a Little on there were big rebounds and he was fighting the its important for us to keep shooting the we know that if we shoot the pick at Ranford

who Likely to be called on for tonight game Winnipeg coach Bob Murdoch said yesterday he wont tip his lineup hand until sometime the hints were we wont name our goalie but i dont see any reason Why we should change what weve been doing All that been first then and now that the jets have hoisted game 1 of this series they have plenty of Confidence to do the things Treyve been doing All season and not worry about potential negative con you the logical Hunch might be to come Back with since Hes now on a five game unbeaten Streak if you count the finish of the regular and on the other has not had a Victory in his last six even though he has played reasonably logic goes out the enter the cat and i know Stephane went through a lot of adversity last year in Wayne and he really showed a lot of Murdoch said and also in training Camp this year when he was basically the sixth he showed a lot of he went to Wayne and played very then he was finally summoned to Winnipeg and made a Good account of the oilers Are expected to see him in Beaure Gard if Murdoch Calls me ill be ready and ill do the Best i take charge Mantha lets jets escape Monkey by Tim Campbell Winnipeg free press Edmonton there

been suffering from a slight Groin pull and his recent Handson contributions to the Winnipeg jets offence have been but put something on the line Stanley cup playoffs and Mantha adopts a take charge Char i was just trying to play my Mantha said to a lineup for interviews i knew with Randy Carlyle out of the certain Guys just have to pick it i was just trying to have a Little More concentration and be a Little More aware of what was happening on the being the older Man Back i was maybe trying to take care of what Kitty would have soft As it he scored a crucial goal for the jets Early in the second a 70footer that wobbled its Way past shaky Edmonton goalie Bill Mantha also read the ice Well All stepping in front of oilers heading off rushes and Mak ing a few of his Mantha clutch performer one Early in the third period was another key As he found Pat a Lynnik streaking to the the feed was perfect and the jets had their first Lead of game 1 and turned it into a 75 we won the first that a he its a new game today and we just have to keep our composure and our focus and keep our not get too cocky and stay within i think its a Monkey off our All year we struggled in this to take the first one is such a big the Monkey was four losses Here during the regular season and five straight playoff series losses to the you could almost have seen his heroics besides Dale a two goal scorer in the Mantha is the Only other Jet to average at least a Point a game in previous playoff Competition against the with his goal and assist wednes Day he now has seven Points in six games versus he said he Felt very Good about his goal Early in the second when Mark Messier scored that big shorthanded you could see our Heads go Down a Mantha but i think when i scored that i could hear a lot of Guys

better Job on the penalty said Treyve got a couple of Little innovations on their Power play that were very effective for it was a combination we didst react too we were backing off a Little too we didst get Early pressure like we usually do along the the key thing against a Good puck handling team is to try and pressure them when they first come into the zone before they set Winnipeg spent Only 35 minutes in a formal practice session at the coliseum but most of what went wrong will be solved by videotape and execution will be the key to the and if the jets can execute More like they did in the regular the oilers might really be in danger of leaving town Down by we were standing around watch said but we still got away with that was great to win the game but we didst play very we were real that for but were in a Good situation now and it feels pretty now theres a Little bit More pressure on them for this game and Well have to see How they react to that said the second game is
