Durelle Challenges Moore for Crown
By TOM WITECKI
' By winning five of their last six
contests Montreal's red hot Cana-'
diens have broken up the previous-
ly tight National Hockey League
race and have threatened to make
it a runaway in much the same'
way as they did last year.
But this is more or less to be
expected since the Canadiens were
picked unanimously to success-
fully defend their crown and again
dominate the league, earning them
the title of the "Yankees of the
This label fits quite well since
the Canadien organization in many,
ways resembles that of the peren-
nial American League Champions.
Similar to Yankees
Similar to the Yankees, Les
Canadiens boast a large stock of
dependable veterans including the
ageless Maurice ''The Rocket''
Richard, Floyd Curry and Doug
Harvey, and also a fine crop of
young stars such as Jean Beliveau,
Bernie Goeffrion, Dickie Moore,
and "The Pocket Rocket" Henry
The source of these stars is a
huge scouting and farm organiza-
tion which stretches the length'
and breadth of our neighbor to the
north. Like the Yankees, the Ca-
nadiens have learned to dominate.

MacDonald Latest Product
The latest product of this sys-
tem is Alvin MacDonald who has
just come into prominence in the
last few weeks. The young left
winger scored three goals and add-
ed three assists to aid the Cana-
diensin their recent burst.
The only contender which has
managed to stay near the high-
flying Frenchmen during the past
week have been the Detroit Red
Wings and they needed some last-
second heroics to do it. Led by
Gordie Howe, who is seeking the
400th goal of his NHL career after
clicking for number 398 and 399
last week, the Wings trail Mon-
treal by four points.
Toronto Comes to Life
Toronto, which wallowed around
the cellar throughout the first part
of the season has suddenly come
to life, winning three of their last
four contests. Part of the Maple
Leafs' recent success is being at-
tributed to newly-appointed Coach
Bert Olmstead who replaced the
fired Billie Reay.
