Gordie Fashoway Is Big Gun For Unpredictable NW Royals

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C.— Fashoway, Love, Durham, Dechene, Shibicky, MacKenzie and Dorohoy. What’s in a name? Plenty. Ask the Cougars, Canucks or any of the teams in the WHL and all of them will tell you the heart and backbone of the NW Royals revolves around the individuals listed above.

Rangers’ Rags To Riches Story Simple, Muzz Has Knack For Psychological Twist

NEW YORK, N.Y.— Professor Murray Patrick, head of the psychology department in the School of Hard Knocks on New York’s West side, has lectured successfully. By convincing the Rangers that mind is over matter, he has suddenly made them a winning club—on the road. In this new year, the Broadway Blues have gone from rags to riches. Saddled with a heavy road schedule white the Ice Show took over their home base, they immediately began to win in Boston and Detroit and even Montreal. By the end of January, they had a terrific away-from-home record in 54 of five victories and a tie in eight games. Terrific for them, at least. It’s got to, the point now where the Rangers even look good by comparison with the rest of the league. They’d won…
