Special to The Daily
DETROIT - The rumors of the decline which originated in Montreal
and slowly permeated the rest of the NHL were dispelled last night by the
Montreal Canadiens as they easily dispatched the Detroit Red Wings, 4-1.
The young Wings, much heralded lately by the Detroit press, had their
aspirations as successors to the Norris Division crown dashed as the
Canadiens intimidated the Wings from the start, putting on an impressive
display of skating, passing and checking which left the Wings thoroughly,
Michel Larocque was a surprise starter for Montreal Coach Scotty
Bowman in the net last night, as perennial all-star Ken Dryden was given an
evening's rest. In the locker room after the game, Bowman would not
disclose the reasons why Dryden has seen only limited action this season.
The first period was highlighted by early penalties as MontreaL
immediately took the play to the Wings. Detroit had an early five-on-three
power play opportunity, but failed to score. Montreal then took control of the
game, dominating Detroit physically, Then Larry Robinson scored ar
unassisted goal, beating Thommie Bergman on a breakaway with 9:31 left iii
the first period. The period ended at 1-0 with Al Cameron of the Wings taking
a needless penalty with only four seconds remaining on the clock.
Montreal broke the game open in the second period, scoring three goals,
the first coming on the power play which opened the period.
Bill Lochead finally broke the ice for the Wings, scoring with 5:3
remaining in the third, giving Detroit their-only goal of the night.
Bobby Kromm cited the bad penalties his team took as the reason they
were unable to skate with the Habs. Kromm said, "The Canadiens came to
play and they turned in their finest performance of the year, while we were
"The key to the game was the penalty which Cameron took at the end of
the first period, which led to Montreal taking a 2-0 lead."
Kromm singled out Reed Larson for turning in a very poor performance
on defense for the Wings. "Reed should have helped Bergman out on the first
goal, making Robinson deal with a two-on-one, rather than taking Thommie
one-on-one to the goal."
Kromm also noted that "Larson had several opportunities to shoot the
puck which he declined, and frequently tried to skate with the puck when he
should have passed it."
Overall, the Wings were lucky that the slaughter was not worse, for
Rogie Vachon was excellent in the net, despite the unfavorable score. He
recorded more saves on breakaways than anyone cared to count, and after
the game, he said, "We just couldn't do anything right."

WINNIPEG (AP) - Bobby Hull, one
of the great left wings in hockey history
and one of two players to score 1,000
career goals, announced his retirement
from the sport at a news conference
"I have always said that I would play
the game as long as I continued to enjoy
the game," said the 39-year-old Hull,
who was competing in his 22nd major
league season and seventh with the
World Hockey Association Winnipeg
"For personal reasons I have not
been able to devote my full attention to

the game and, therefore, in all fairness
to my teammates and management, I
feel that this is the right decision for all
parties," Hull said.'
Hull had been granted a 10-day leave
of absence from the Jets for "personal
reasons" and reportedly had spent
most of that time in Toronto attempting
to settle details of a divorce from his
wife, Joanne.
During that period, reports surfaced
that Hull was headed for the New York
Rangers for a reunion with linemates
Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson, who
accepted hefty contract offers and
jumped to the National Hockey League

We think he would have said, "It's too good to gulp" And you will,
too. In the final analysis.

Hull, in his retirement statement,
refuted those reports.
"If I ever decide to play again, it will
be with the Winnipeg Jets," he said.
"Obviously, the decision to retire was
not an easy one, so it would be ludicrous
for anyone to suggest that I am con-

Hull left the NHL Chicago Black
Hawks in 1972 to join the Jets and was
one of the players whose signing with
the WHA gave the league credibility in
its first season. He had become part
owner of the franchise and will remain
with the club in that capacity.
Meanwhile, on the ice, he won every
award a forward could win - in either
"I want to express my sincere ap-
preciation to all the thousands of fans
who appreciate me and encouraged me
over the many hockey seasons both in
Winnipeg and Chicago and every other
city I have played in throughout the
world," he said. "Naturally, I want to
thank the sports writers here and
throughout North America who played
a key role in my career."
Hull scored 604 regular season and 62
playoff goals during his 15-year tenure
with the Black Hawks, and added 408
regular-season goals with Winnipeg.
The University of Michigan Rowing
Club, as if to avenge their loss last week
to Michigan State, devastated the MSU
Rowing Club in four of their five events
on Sunday at Lansing.
Sweeping past the Spartans with un-
mistakable power, the Michigan crew
reigned victorious in both Men's .and
Women's Varsity Eights, which is com-
posed of four women and four men.
Last weekend in Boston the Michigan
club made the respectable showings in
the Men's Lightweight Four and the
same Mixed Eight which so thoroughly
trounced MSU this weekend.
The Michigan crew plans to end its
season in mid-November with the

Blue spikers fall in close mac

It was the last game of the regular season and the
setting was perfect for Michigan's volleyball team; a home,
match against an arch-opponent, a large (for volleyball),
hyped-up crowd and even two volunteers from Michigan's
football cheerleading squad.
It would have been perfect, but the spikers were upset last
night by a tenacious Eastern Michigan team in five full
games, 12-15, 15-2, 10-15, 15-2 and 13-15, leaving the Blue
spikers with a 7-4 record.
Michigan started out the night well primed for the Hurons.
Cheerleaders Cam Laswell and Jeff Burl, who wanted to
cheer because the squad is not going to Iowa with the football
team, led the crow in "Go Blue's" worthy of any football
audience. At first they even went so far as to do flips for
every point the spikers notched, but soon gave up. "If there
were eleven of us it would be different, but with two it's.
tough," commented Laswell.
THE WOLVERINES dominated the first game, leading
11-3 at one point. But they allowed EMU to rebound and,
eventually, win the game.
"We had big leads and we just stood there while the other
team came back," said coach Sandy Vong. ''With the first
game we put ourselves in a hole."
The spikers recovered themselves in the second game, but
lapsed again in the third. The fourth game started slowly, but
the Wolverines left Eastern in their dust.

Using the momentum from the fourth game as am-
munition in the fifth, Michigan led in early scoring. The game
ended in a see-saw-like scramble for points and the
Wolverines, unable to hold the ball for two much-needed ser .
ves, finally gave in to the relentless Hurons.
IN SPITE OF the loss, Vong was not disappointed with the
way his team played. ''We played well to the very end," he
said. "Maybe we didn't play the smartest game, but we
played very well."
"I feel bad that we lost the game, for the seniors in par-
ticular," he added.
Co-captain Beth Major was dejected but not defeated.
"We should have won," she said. "We were slow on defense
and our blocks weren't as tough as they should have been, but
we're going into the state tournament (SMAIAW) with op-
"WE PLAYED hard," commented the other co-captain,
Roberta Salay. I don't know where we went wrong. It
seemed like we were mentally into it. Maybe we just out-
played ourselves."
The Wolverines are now looking ahead to next week's
state tournament, which will be played in Grand Valley
November 10-11.
"Our team is as good as anybody in the stae," asserted
Vong. "This (the tournament) is where we hope to peak.
We've got a good shot at the state championships this year
and we'd like to play well."
