Remember this Famous Name in Hockey…

Remember Lester Patrick—sure you do, but do you remember the night in April, 1928, when at the age of 44 he donned the pads and stepped into the Rangers’ goals to win a Stanley Cup game? Patrick was coach of the Rangers then and his club was playing the old Montreal Maroons for the Cup. The first two games were played in Montreal. The Rangers lost the first game and midway through the middle period of the second game fate dealt a dirty blow to Goaler Lorne Chabot. He was hit between the eyes by the puck and taken to the hospital. After Maroons refused permission for the Rangers to use spare Goalie Alex Connell, Patrick slipped on the pads and went into the goals, himself. That night he was manager, coach…

Many Changes Seen In Eastern Division Clubs

ST. LOUIS, Mo.— The hammering and sawing that’s going on in the Western Division of the American League as managers and coaches re-arrange their rosters for the soon-to-start race Is easily matched by Eastern clubs. Buffalo’s Bisons, who shifted into the eastern sector last winter and got home first, 2 points ahead of Providence, will rely strongly on the men who won that championship, and hope that new blood will make them stronger. The Herd has no problem in goal, with veterans Connie Dion and Gordon Bell back to double-team the enemy, if the player limit permits AL clubs the luxury of two goalers. Plenty Of Vacancies There are vacancies on defense in Buffalo, as in most of the leagues’ 10 rinks. Coach Roy Goldsworthy has his choice among seven men for his fourth, fifth…
