Petes’ Ice Run Ended By 67s

ST. CATHARINES— One of the longest early-season undefeated streaks in recent history came to an end when Ottawa 67s defeated Peter-borough Petes 3-1. Backed by superb goaltending from John Garrett, the Petes won 11 and tied one (with Oshawa) of their first 12 games and sprinted into a solid lead among the 10 Ontario Hockey Association major Junior A teams. Generally considered to have some of the better talent in th league, the 67s played inconsistent hockey the first month of the schedule and 48 hours before defeating Peterborough had lost 5-4 to seventh place London Knights in the Ottawa Auditorium. However they “put it all together” as the saying goes in sport, and their two-goal decision over Peterborough tightened up the race for the first four or five positions. Strangely enough during their 12…

Pulford Gives Kings New Ice Leadership

LOS ANGELES— There is no question that Bob Pulford has been one of the fine, honest hockey players. The question on Pulford following the Kings’ off-season acquisition of the veteran forward was how much he had left to give the Los Angeles club. He is 34 and has played pro 13 previous seasons, all in the NHL with Toronto. The first signs are favorable. This is a much-improved club and he is one of the reasons. From the day he decided to report, Pulford has given the Kings’ quiet leadership. He is no rah-rah guy, but he sets a good example with his steady, hard work all over the ice. Owner Jack Kent Cooke and manager-coach Larry Regan have been outspoken in saying he is the veteran leader the team has needed…

Blues Scuttle Bruins At Home

ST. LOUIS— Some of the frustration felt by the St. Louis Blues during Boston’s four-game sweep in the Stanley Cup finals last spring came bubbling to the surface in a recent game at Boston Garden. The two Cup finalists of last year met for the first time in the new season, and the Blues probably wished the game had been in May rather than November. They beat the Bruins, 2-0, and gave Boston its first loss on home ice in 30 games, including playoffs. But two points in November is worth more now than a face-saving in May, and Jim Roberts, who set up the first goal and scored the second, undoubtedly spoke for his teammates when he said of the game, “That was satisfying—really satisfying.” Roberts brought a hush to the Boston crowd…

IHL Slaps Ullyot With $1,000 Fine

FORT WAYNE— Manager-coach Ken Ullyot of the Fort Wayne Komets is $1,000 lighter in the pocketbook after his staggering fine by International Hockey League Commissioner Bill Beagan. The IHL chief executive doled out the surprise fine to Ullyot for allegedly attempt ing to strike a referee during a league encounter May 8 in Flint. Beagan also announced that Ullyot is also suspended from all his duties for a period of one month. It was the stiffest fine ever handed out in the IHL and was another effort on the part of Beagan to enforce his ‘hands off the referees’ policy to keep league games from becoming embroiled in rough-house hockey and fighting. Beagan didn’t limit his disciplining to Ullyot. He also took $200 away from Port Huron manager-coach Ted Garvin following a report to…
