Wrong Way Defenseman Clare Martin of Detroit Red Wings shoved two goals past his own goalie accidentally last Sunday night, almost breaking rookie Terry Sawchnk’s heart as the brace enabled Boston Bruins to win the game. Sawchuk was up from Indianapolis Capitals of the American Hookey Teague and would have won his first time start except for the one-man blunders. Automatic Fines When the final siren blew at the Montreal Forum after the Canadiens-Hangers game which the latter won, Maurice Richard leaped out of the penalty box to settle a score with Tony Leswick, the Blueshirt assigned to cover the Rocket all night. The pair, as well as battling Kenny Reardon and Pentti fund all received misconduct penalties and automatic $25 fines. HOW THE RACE GOES RESULTS OF GAMES January 4 — Ohicago 4, Toronto 4;…

Another junior Buff who is looking sharp is Brent McNab, defenceman who last year played with Wataskiwin Canadians. MacNab also has seen action with the senior Stampeders and In a recent game he was the best defenseman on the ice and that included a veteran like Archie Wilder and a coming rookie like Hugh Coflin.
