conference final with the Chicago he just thinks they dont know what there talking dont Green int saying he expects the oilers to even if he believed that was pulling out his toenails make him admit he just thinks people who Are forecasting an Edmonton stroll in the Park Are full of expect the series that opens tonight at Edmonton North lands coliseum to be a drawn taken prisoners he the fact that Green int in tune with conventional Wisdom will come As no Surprise to anyone who has watched his career Green was an unpredictable cuss the first Day he showed up to play defence for the old Boniface some 35 years nothing has for he Doest buy the theory that says game 1 will be an Edmonton that belief is based on the fact the Hawks had to go seven games to eliminate the Louis blues in the Norris the have had time to recharge their batteries following a fou game sweep of the los Angeles Kings in the smythe that could be a he conceded from his North lands office but maybe we got pushed right to the limit in our series with the Kings beat Calgary in six and were rested and waiting for so we win the first Green agrees no one in his right mind would choose to fall behind 31 in a seven game which is what happened to the oilers against but since we now i can say its the Best thing that could have happened to the jets forced us to lift our game another they pushed our veterans to dig Down and become leaders they made Craig Simpson play like the old Craig Jari Kerri to play like the old Green has been around Long enough to expect nothing but trouble from the truculent they won our season he and they always give us trouble in Chicago its Hal Sigurdson Tough to play against that crowd and on the smaller ice surface the Hawks Are hard to i dont know if it will be a physical series translation a lot of but that the style Mike Keenan teams usually the reason most people give for installing the oilers As favourites to appear in the Stanley cup final for the fifth time in the last seven years is Billy Ranford is at the top of his in Chicago the goaltender who starts the game is rarely the one who Keenan is now known As Captain Doest he concedes Ranford is playing he thinks the Way he rebounded after a slow Start in the Winnipeg series will be a turning Point in his he also thinks the Blackhawk will get sound for that to most people believe either Veteran Jacques Cloutier or Rookie de Belfour will have to Supply Green thinks it will come from Greg who didst even dress for the last four games of the Louis Millen motivated the blues because he played for them for so Many Green they wanted to play against they figured they knew his maybe they but Millen has always played Well against we expect them to play maybe in the opening Green wants to Bury once and for All the notion the oilers Are a team heavy on we were an arrogant he but that was Back in 1981 and 82 when our players were 2021years Back then they used to taunt the other laugh at their Power but were not arrogant los Angeles knocked that out of us years ago 1982 when they stuck it in our ear in that playoff it taught us to respect All our that definitely includes the Winnipeg Green actions speak As hearts break by Ashley Prest Winnipeg free press when your dream slips from your actions can say what words can the Portage terriers lost a heartbreaker Here monday night when they were edged 64 by the Nipawin Hawks who won the an Avet cup inter provincial bestow seven Junior hockey series Nipawin now Heads off to British Columbia for the Centennial cup tournament this perhaps the agonizing disappointment of loss was Best de scribed by terriers Allstar goal tender Jeff who had a tremendous when he Sim ply Bent Over and bowed his face into the top of the net As the final Buzzer perhaps it was the shattered face of Portage left Winger Bruce Mccallum who took a crosscheck to the Mouth near the end of the third period that loosened his top front Ive never played with a bet Ter group of said a choked after the game As blood dripped Down his everybody got along so Well and worked so Good together All we just wanted this so bad and no one its Digap More than that its Over because we had a Good shot at trailing 51 in the third Greg Long and Gord Ransom each scored within a seven minute Span to make it a on goal game but nip wins empty Netter with 29 seconds left ended portages for 16 of the it was their Junior hockey Swan song and Many hearts ached for what could have we never gave up and we had guts to said Portage de Fence Man David we Al ways believed in ourselves and its Tough to know that its possibly the classic description of the thrilling Nipawin Victory was demonstrated by Hawks standup net minder Lauren Bel land As the game threw his stick in the air and simply stood with his arms out we asked a lot of each other in this series we were so beat up but we had a Bunch of Guys that just played their hearts Belland Nipawin Rookie coach Bob Lowes said a Hal dozen play ers continued to play through out the series though several could barely walk once their skates were were a Boodan guts Type of team and these Guys will just suck it up and keep Lowes for a Rookie i just feel Lucky that my first shot at coaching was with a great team like store hours til 9
