Woytowich Seen As Key Figure If Minnesota Club To Succeed

TWIN CITIES, Minn. — What is happiness? For Bob Woytowich, the soft-spoken W1nnipeg native who patrols the blue line for Minnesota’s North Stars, it is: Be ingable to skate once again with a hockey stick in his hands.

But now everybody’s doing It, even the expansion teams, so It doesn’t mean a doggone thing. Now I’m a little worried where a week ago I was happy.” Leafs followed up their doubleheader sweep against Hawks with three successive losses — to Detroit (3-2), to Montreal (1-0) and to New York (5-3). Miuav an 8 a.m. practice for the Monday starting the following week, with an afternoon session scheduled, too. “We’re a bit off yet,” Imlach said. “A lot of the guys…
