Detroit
Montreal Wins
Opener in 4th
Overtime, 3-2
Richard Ends Game
With Unassisted Goal
DETROIT-(P)-Maurice Rich-
ard rammed in a goal after 61:09
minutes of sudden death overtime
play in the. early morning hours
today to bring the Montreal Cana-
diens a 3-2 victory over the De-
troit Red Wings in a gruelling
marathon that opened their Stan-
ley Cup series before 13,246 fans
here.
Richard's brilliant unassisted
tally came just after the fourth
overtime period had started.
THE ROCKET intercepted a
Detroit pass and sped past the de-
fense with a blazing burst of speed.
All alone in front of the net, he
paused before lining a 10-footer
past Terry Sawchuk.
Richard's play ended a grip-
ping duel between leg-weary
athletes which had provided re-
peated thrills. Despite the nu-
merous overtime periods, play
in the extra sessions was wide
open with the goalies in starring
roles.
Both teams scored once in the
first period and once more in the
third period. Gordie Howe and
Leo Reise connected as the Wings
twice went into the lead. Butch
Bouchard and Bert Olmstead
countered with the tying goals.
* s .s
THE FIRST period was a strange
one. The Canadiens stayed strict-
ly on defense, getting only one
shot. But that was Bouchard's
looper over Sawchuk's shoulders.
Detroit, always on the offense, got
in for 14 shots with Howe tallying
on Leo Reise's rebound.
When the Canadiens switched
tactics at the start of the sec-
ond period, Detroit was caught
off stride. Montreal became the
offensive pace-setter, yet it was
the Wings who scored next.
Richard and Ted Lindsay were
in the penalty 1 ox serving two of
the fve penalties which referee
Bill Cnadwick called when Reise
drove home Sid Abel's passout.
t * *
MONTREAL evened it 11 min-
utes before regulation time ended.
Olmstead took Richard's rebound,
whirled and lifted a high shot in
from five-foot range.
Only the brilliance of goalies
Sawehuk and Gerry McNeil kept
the overtime going as long as it
did. There were numerous good
shooting chances, including
breakaways by Richard and Cal
MacKay for Montreal.
In the 121 minutes of play,
Sawchuk made 42 saves, 22 in
overtime. McNeil faced much ten-
ser pressure, stopping 38 of his
62 saves ni the extra periods.
Richard's dramatic finish upset
form in this game, for which the
Wings were strong favorites. D
troit reigned a 3-1 choice in the
series against Montreal and an
odds-on favorite to retain the
Stanley Cup.

BACK TO BASEBALL:
Koceski Heads 'M' Outfield
Prospects for '51 Campaign

(EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the third
in a series of four articles designed
to introduce the Michigan baseball
team to Daily readers.)
* * *
By TED PAPES
Leo Koceski, a familiar name to
Michigan sport fans, returns to
the sport pages again this spring.
The Canonsburg Cannonball is
set to embark on his third Wol-
verine baseball campaign after
having completed a successful
football career in a maize and blue
uniform.
S* * *
HE'S THE ONLY holdover
among Ray Fisher's outfield can-
didates and he packs an impres-
* * *

sition in the outfield on the Dis-
trict Four NCAA all-star team.
Koceski will probably patrol left
field again. Another gridder,
Frank Howell, looks like a good
bet to win a position in the outer
gardens.
* * *
HE ISN'T A polished fly chaser
but he swings a big bat from the
left side of the plate and Fisher
plans to use the big fellow against
right handed pitchers.
The ancient art of switch hit-
ting may crop up on the new
team. Sophomore Gerry Har-
rington is swinging both ways
in practice and his progress in-
dicates that he'll crack the line-
up frequently.
Another top flight hitting pros-
pect is Line Painter who was men-
tioned previously as a catching re-
serve. Although not as fast on
his feet as. the other gardeners he
might get the assignment of his
stick work.
* * *
A YOUNG TRANSFER from
Grand Rapids, Jack Kleniert, has
caught Fisher's eye with his steady
improvement in the batting cages
and hopes are held out that he
will develop into a good outfielder.
There's considerable uncertain-
ty shrouding Michigan's hitting
possibilities against southpaw hur-
lers, so the Wolverine mentor is
searching for a good right hand
batter to take over for Howell,
who bats lefty all the way and
may be weak against port siders.
A boy who started the season
as a pitcher, Dick Yirkowski, has
looked good in batting drills and
may become Howell's second.
His pitching possibilities are still
being explored.
Bill Billings, Paul Fancher and
Bob Dunbar are also in the fight
for outfield assignments but weak-
nesses at the plate may hamper
them.
Drills are still limited by soft
ground and chilly weather but the
fielders are beginning to get out-
doors for fly shagging.

'Ilm iFavored
To 'Win NCAA
Gym Tourney
If James Carroll, the nation's
betting commissioner, were to
place odds on this weekend's
NCAA gymnastic meet, he would
probably give Illinois the favorite's
role.
"Why give the Illini the best
chance of winning," a casual fan
might ask. Well, one only has to
glance at the record.
* * *
THE ILLINI won the Big Ten
championship with ease at Madi-
son last Saturday compiling a
grand total of 64 points. Also the
Champaign-Urbana crew boasts a
top all-around man in their cap-
tain Frank Dolan.
Dolan along with teammates
Bruce Sidlinger and Bob Sulli-
van won three individual Con-
ference crowns at Madison with
the captain taking honors in the
side horse, Sidlinger scoring first
in the trampoline, and Sullivan
copping the tumbling title.
Dolan was defending all-around
champ until last Saturday's meet
where he bowed to the heroics of
one Mel Stout of Michigan State.
* * *
HOWEVER, the Orange and
Blue leader is still a distinct threat
in any event. The versatile Dolan
ran up 19 of his team's 64 points
in the early season rout of Michi-
gan 64-19. He took firsts in the
parallel bars and the high bar,
second on the side horse and third
on the flying rings.
Other star performers that
coach Charley Pond has at his
disposal are NCAA tumbling
champion Irvin Bedard, who has
been kingpin in his specialty
for three successive years, and
Dick Palmer, the flying rings
champ.
After glancing at the Illini ros-
ter, it seems harder than ever to
find a squad that will top them
in the forthcoming display of
gymnastic might.
The Illini will be looking for
their sixth NCAA pennant when
competition begins Friday with
preliminary events. Also, the Big
Ten leaders will be aiming for
their second consecutive grand
sweep, which consists of the NCAA
and Big Ten titles.

LAKELAND, Fla.-Charlie Max-
well, 24-year-old rookie outfielder
from Western Michigan College,
played a top role yesterday as the
Boston Red Sox defeated the De-
troit Tigers, 5 to 1, in an exhibi-
tion contest.
Maxwell's bat drove in three
runs for the Bosox with a triple
and two singles. Unlike Ted Wil-
liams, who saw two of his four
singles wasted, Maxwell made all
of his blows count. He also was
credited with the only stolen base
of the game.
REDS 7, PHILS 6
CLEARWATER, Fla.-Two Tri-
ples by Ted Kluszewski and sloppy
playing by the Philadelphia Phil-
lies gave the Cincinnati Reds a 7-6
victory over the National League
Champions.
YANKS 4, CHISOX 0
PHOENIX, Ariz.-The New York
Yankees' trio of sensational rook-
ies stared as the champs took a
4-0 decision from the Chicago
White Sox.
Tom Morgan, 20-year-old right-
hander, hurled six more scoreless
innings, bringing his spring total
to 19. Infielder Gil McDougald
cracked three hits and outfielder
Mickey Mantle made two.
* * *
DODGERS 10, A'S 9
MIAMI, Fla.-Cal Abrams dou-
bled home Billy Cox from second
base in the 13th inning to give the
Brooklyn Dodgers a 10-9 victory
over the Philadelphia Athletics.
Only 829 fans saw the marathon.
The Dodgers sent the game into

overtime with a six run rally in
the seventh inning that tied the
score at 7-7. Both teams scored
single runs in the tenth and elev-
enth innings.
INDIANS 17, BROWNS 7
TUCSON, Ariz.-The Cleveland
Indians' "Kid Infield" exploded for
14 of the club's 20 hits as the Tribe
defeated the St. Louis Browns 17-
7.
Shortstop Ray Boone led the
sophomore quartet with five for
five, including a homer, two dou-
bles and two singles.
GIANTS 10, SENATORS 4
ORLANDO, Fla.-Home runs by
first baseman Monte Irvin and
catcher Sal Yvars paced the New

York Giants to a 10-4 victory over
the Washington Senators. Each
homer was delivered with one on.
BRAVES 6, CARDS 3
ST. PETERSBURG,$ Fla. - The
Boston Braves downed the St.
Louis Cardinals 6-3 in an exhibi-
tion game with a five-run splurge
in the tenth inning. Earl Torge-
son and Sid Gordon each drove in
a pair of runs.

CUBS 7, BUCS 6
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., -
Outfield r George Metkovich' of
the Pittsburgh Pirates hit safely
in a 16th straight game but the
Bucs dropped a 7-6 decision to
the Chicago Cubs in an exhibition
game.

By BOB LANDOWNE
Consistency is the test of a
champion.
Whether or not the men who
took swimming titles in last year's
NCAA meet can repeat in this sea-
son's championships at Auatin
Thursday, Friday and Saturday of
this week should mark them as
either real champions or as has-
beens.
* * *
FIVE OF LAST YEAR'S winners
are returning. Three of them look
like lead-pipe inches to repeat,
but the other two will have to hit
high peaks to brook the opposition
of a speedy crew of sophomore
splashers.
Ohio State's defending cham-
pions have Jack Taylor, the
1500-meter free style and 150-
yard backstroke champion ready
to defend at least one of those
titles.
Taylor will probably pass up the
1500-meters to concentrate in the
back stroke and the 440 free, and
as a result will leave the field wide
open in the long race for the as-
pirations of Yale's John Marshall
and Jim McLane and Michigan
State's Bert McLachlan.
In the breast stroke, Princeton's
miracle-armed junior, rates as the
class of the field. He set the pres-
ent mark in the 200-yard event
with a 2:14.8 clocking last year at.
Columbus. But he'll receive a stiff
challenge from Michigan's John
Davies and Stew Elliott and Gerry
Holan of Ohio. ,

IOWA' Ed (Rusty) Garst is one
champ who is not expected to re-
peat, though he's in the type of
race where anything can happen.
His 50-yard free style crown could
be toppled by MSC's Clark Scholes.
1ns AI Snnei will have t-
defeat his teammate Taylor to
win the 100-yard backstroke title
again, and it looks like a big bill
to fill. Sonner must also reckon
with Yale's Richard Thoman,
who swam a 58.3 in the Eastern
championships two weeks back.
The last individual winner re-
turning is the aforementioned
Scholes. He bids well to be one of
the meet's big point men, particu-
larly if he can repeat his,100-yard
free style victory.
Yale, the winner of the 400-
yard free style relay last sea-
son, has three of the four men
on that team back this year.
Dick Blum, Bill Farnsworth,
and Al Reid are the veterans who'll
carry Eli's colors in the event
again. Together with sophomore
Ray Moore, they form a combina-
tion which only Ohio State, the
Big Ten champion, should chal-
lenge with any hope of success.
In a meet which may turn out to
be dominated by sophomores, such
as divers Al Coffey and Bob Clot-
worthy of Ohio State and Yale's
redoubtable Marshall, the striving
of the quintet of champions to re-
gain their crowns should be one of
the high points of interest in the
1951 NCAA merry-go-round.
