and Badger mentor Bob Johnson as the two men walked out onto
the ice at the end of the period to argue with the two officials.
Johnson was complaining about the 10 minute misconduct given
to Badger center Bob Poffenroth for over-protesting an off-side call.
At the time of the call Johnson grabbed a stick and beat it against
the boards. This steamed Renfrew. "The officials should have called
a bench penalty when Johnson was slapping his stick but they didn't.
Its in the rule book."
The loss of Poffenroth was a devastating blow to Badger for-
tunes as he had to sit out the end of the second period and almost
eight minutes of the third.
The Wolverine's leading scorer, Dave Perrin commented on Pof-
fenroth, "He's one of the best players they've got. He's small but
quick and fast."
As Poffenroth sat in the penalty box Wisconsin became sluggish'

the play. "Davy gave the puck to me and I passed it to Merle standing
in front of the net." Falk took Gamsby's pass and fired it from the.
left into the far right corner of the Badger net.
Falk, though, was happy mostly with the play of his line. "When
we skate well we play well. We pass to each other and work the
give-and-go."
The play-offs loom ahead and Goug Galbraith summed up the
feeling of the team. "We've got a damn good chance to win it now.
We're finally playing like we're supposed to."

Mantle, saddled by a variety of

throughout his career, made his
much-rumored retirement official
in a packed news conference at
the yankees spring training hotel.
Mike Burke, president of the
