Shore Gets Two In Swap For Mattiussi

SPRINGFIELD, Mass.— Owner Eddie Shore of the Springfield Indians announced the completion of the Wayne Larkin deal, by which he had traded Dick Mattiussi to the Cleveland Barons for Larkin and Murray Davison.

Face Mask Paying Off for Sawchuck

DETROIT, Mich.— Goalkeeper Terry Sawchuk’s sensational play in the early Detroit games this season appears to be the result of wearing a mask. The 33-year-old netminder, who is playing his 13th year in the National Hockey League, has been a big factor in the Wings’ quick getaway. Sawchuk allowed only two goals in three games and had a shutout string of 130 minutes, four seconds, interrupted by Montreal’s Claude Provost on a deflection. Sawchuk rang up his 99th career shutout—including playoff games of course—in the 0-0 game at Chicago. The seasoned Detroit goaler this year turned to the face mask made popular by Canadiens’ Jacques Plante, during the club’s training camp period.

Bob Perreault Lifts Bruins With Brilliant Goal Tending And Dressing Room Humor

BOSTON, Mass.— It was too early for Indian Summer, and as a matter of fact the New England countryside was just recovering from a steady diet of springlike rains. There was desultory interest in the playoff series which the baseball people like to refer to as “The World Series,” with New York and San Francisco representing the world. The big college football teams in this area were in the process of losing their big games as usual, and it was too early for the mighty Celtics to start defense of their professional basketball championship. It was during this relative lull in the world of sports that Robert Michel Perreault (pronounced PEHR-o) burst into prominence. Who’s Perreault? He’s a ‘Five By Five’ with a golden smile, a deft catching hand, a quick stick, nimble feet and…
