Huskies Cautious Despite Home Edge

SASKATOON—The battle lines have been drawn for the finals in Western Canada and the University of Saskatchewan has won the right to host the best-of-three finals. For the third week in a row, all four teams split their two games, thus eliminating the Alberta Golden Bears from the playoff scene. “We lost some close ones early in the year and were never able to regain any momentum,” stated Clare Drake, the longtime Golden Bear coach. No one at all is conceding a second straight championship banner to the Saskatchewan Huskies, and for just reasons. During the last two seasons the visiting team has waltzed in and won the CWUAA championship while on the road. Dave King, coach of the Huskies, is not taking the Calgary Dinosaurs lightly. “They won two of the four…

BEDCLOTHES

I Try To Be Fair LADIES AND gentlemen, such vindictiveness, such outraged response to sane, rational subjectivity about Wayne Gretzky. Cannot we discuss this calmly? I try to be fair and impartial, and what happens? All the letters and phone calls are uniformly unpleasant, suggesting that I am unfit to die under the charging wheels of a runaway Edmonton oil rig.

At hand is a wounded note from a HOCKEY NEWS reader, Tom Senay, from the charming British Columbia boondock of Coquitlam. Mr. Senay expressed, in fact, hockey horror at my heresy. “I read with amazement in the Jan. 15 issue the Bedclothes column that attempted to knock some of Wayne…

Timing The Key For ECAC Playoff Hopefuls

BOSTON—It’s not how good you are that counts in Eastern college hockey. It’s when you’re good. A streak at the right time will get you into the playoffs, just as surely as a slump at the wrong time will banish you to the outer darkness. This year, it’s Harvard. Maybe. A good start, a horrendous middle, and a blazing finish should—barring a near miraculous upset on the season’s last day—snap a six-year skein of out-of-the-money finishes and put the Crimson into the playoffs for the first time since 1976. Three impressive wins at Bright Center during the season’s last week raised the Harvard record to 10-8-2 in ECAC play. The final game of the year for Harvard is against Dartmouth, a team that the Crimson walloped 11-1 back in November. The wins…
