Kids From Own Back Yard Keep Sags Up Front During Crisis

MONTREAL, Que.— While the fact that their team has held tenaciously to first place in the Quebec Hockey League since first shots were fired back in October, is very gratifying to ratepayers in Chicoutimi, at the same time more thoughtful souls are amazed, more than slightly. To the latter the fortunes of the Sagueneens have not been unlike those of the Canadiens in the run of the Habitants to their sixth National Hockey League title. The Chicoutimi QHL-ers have been harassed and riddled by injuries all season long. Albiet their casualty list is not so lengthy as that of Canadiens, still there were many key players of star rank randered hors du combat for lengthy periods. And through it all the Sags have been marching ahead, strong and proud, even though their margin over…

Warriors Begin Slipping After Mikulan Slips

WINNIPEG, Man. — Vancouver Canucks and their legion of followers are chuckling up their sleeves; Winnipeg Warriors are fretting themselves right out of first place, and Terry Sawchuk and other such great men in the nets have company. It happened as the Western Hockey League’s 70-game schedule turned into the stretch. Warriors, who led the prairie division from the outset, were slipping fast. One of the reasons was goalkeeper Ray Mikulan. There were others, but young Raymond, a sincere individual who thinks more about his job than most people, was cracking up. His nerves were tied tn a knot and he’d lost 10 pounds in keeping his average second only to Mons. Marcel Pelletier of the Canucks. When Mikulan loses 10 pounds it’s akin to peeling the bark off a toothpick. There isn’t much…

Teeps Clinch First, Hatters Last While Others In Wide Open Fight

GUELPH, Ont.— Ontario championship. This year with three games remaining, they’d registered only 13 wins. Biltmores downward plummet could be attributed to a variety of causes, not the least of which was the loss, through age, of eight players who among them scored over 200 goals last season. This was followed up by the failure of the few returning forwards from last, year to produce and a rash of early-season injuries. They weren’t blessed with too much in the way of breaks, dropping 12 games by a one goal margin. This along-with the fact that they won (with one game remaining) only two games on the road may constitute some sort of a record. They played .500 hockey at home but for all the good their road trips did them they might as…
