THE BRUINS BOUNCE BACK
The most remarkable and unexpected development of the National Hockey League campaign is the Boston Bruins. A fifth-place patsy last season, they have been leading the league since November 8. This swift renascence was credited largely to: 1) Coach Milt Schmidt, who decided that teams coached by nice guys seldom finish on top and transformed himself into a blustering martinet; 2) new and eminently helpful faces in Defensemen Allan Stanley and Jack Bionda, Center Jack Caffery, Right Wing Larry Regan; 3) the switch of sturdy Doug Mohns from forward to defense, where he has already scored more points than last season; and 4) Terry Sawchuk (below), who, with dependable checking in front of him, is demonstrating that he has no peer in the tenacious art of goal tending.
Skidding in front of the puck, Boston Goalie Terry Sawchuk makes a plucky, able save off the stick of Montreal's Boom Boom Geoffrion in a 1-1 tie at Boston Garden. Sawchuk was down again last week, this time in a battle with infectious mononucleosis, but is expected back by December 27. The fortunes of the high-riding Bruins depend to a large part on how they fare until the skillful goalie, who holds the modern NHL career record of 68 shutouts, can put on his pads again
GLAD TO HAVE YOU HOME
Parades, motorcades, bands, speeches, keys to the city, banquets, receptions, kisses from mothers, wives, fianc�es; all the wonderfully warm and noisy ceremony with which Americans like to welcome home their heroes last week greeted the returning Olympic gold medal winners at airports, main streets and campuses across the nation
