Late in the period, the Pioneers
took a 3-2 lead on a hotly dis-
puted goal as Vie Venasky poked
the puck home from just outside
Ross Woodly got the assist not
with stick, but with his glove as
he batted a flying puck to the ice
and onto Venasky's stick in front
of the wide open net.
While the Wolverine's coach;
icers, and fans howled their disap-
proval at the call, referee Andy
Gambucii allowed the goal. This
unpopular- call provoked fan re-
actions such as "Give him another
eye and you can call him a Cy-
clops" and "I've seen better calls
'made in a telephone booth" but
the goal stood.
After the game, Gambucii de-
fended his decision. "The Duck hit
Peluso in the shoulder and the kid
(Woodly) batted the puck down
and he (Venasky) put it in with
his stick. It was as simple as that
and the rules allow him to bat
the puck down. You didn't see
the goalie (Bagnell) arguing about
the call. He knew what happened."
Denver scored a eouple of in-
surance goals in the middle of the
third period to salt away their
A very pleased Denver coach,
Murray Armstrong, praised Mc-
Williams after his victory. Arm-
strong commented, "McWilliams
has played six games for us so far
this year and we haven't lost one
yet. He really kept up in therm
in the second period and then we
came back. Had Michigan got
some of those goals that they just
missed on, it might have turned
out to be a different game."
