Woit Breaks 70-Game Famine By Fooling Al With Low Shot To Double Output of 1953

DETROIT, Mich.— Benny Woit figures on introducing himself formally to all the rival goalies in the National Hockey League this season. A year ago Woit patrolled the defense areas regularly for the Detroit Red Wings without even a nodding acquaintance with opposing goaltenders. He was the only man in the league who played the full 70-game schedule without scoring at least once. That scoring famine finally ended.

(As seen in the Toronto Star) The Last Man to Win For the Hawks BATTLING Bill Stewart arrived in town a week too late. The little dean of National league umpires could have given Frankie Eddolls, freshman coach of the Chicago Black Hawks, a terrific psychological surge. Bill, who has a good voice — anyway, he always has the last word — could have held Frankie’s hand and hummed a few bars of: “We Did It Before; You Can Do It Again.” The records back him. up, too. Bill came right off the baseball diamond and led the Hawks to their last Stanley Cup. That was in the season of ‘37-’38. Major Frederick McLaughlin, who owned the Hawks at that time, was wild with joy. He was so happy that he didn’t fire…
