Pittsburgh scores; the Penguins are a playoff team once more

On the outer fringes of the new light that has landed in Pittsburgh, in the person of Mario Lemieux, it is just possible to perceive Eddie Johnston, a bulky and now almost faceless fellow who made most of what is happening happen. And what is happening, as any hockey fan knows, is that the once-hilarious Pittsburgh Penguins are a playoff team for the first time since 1982. And not just a playoff team, but one that eliminated the New York Rangers in a four-game sweep before taking on the chew-’em-up Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup quarterfinals.

Lashing the Rangers, Pittsburgh moved a good deal farther along the overlong playoff trail than the defending champion Edmonton Oilers, who succumbed in seven games to the inspired play of their former teammate Wayne Gretzky and his Los Angeles Kings. Right away, though, the Kings suffered a severe relapse in Calgary and dropped two games to the home-town Flames before returning to California to resume the series.hockey_penguins

In whipping the Rangers, Pittsburgh was into heady stuff. Since the Penguins became part of an expanded National Hockey League in 1967, they have missed the playoffs 12 times, a mighty imposing piece of impotence in a 21-team league that plods through 840 games from October to April in order to finger a mere five also-rans.

Eddie Johnston was at the helm of the past five Pittsburgh disasters, a man with a pair of Stanley Cup rings to remind him of older glories. As the Penguins’ general manager, Johnston sought to re-create the sort of successful combination in Pittsburgh that he had known almost 20 years ago in Boston when he played goal for the Bruins and earned those rings.

Finally, through perception and persistence, he made it last year. Still, his reward was a trifle disconcerting: he was fired. Well, not precisely fired. He was demoted to assistant general manager and now, instead of watching his fulfilled achievement in NHL rinks, he scouts the boondocks, looking for prospects.

In Eddie’s early years in Boston, the Bruins couldn’t lick their lips. He reached the Bruin cage in 1962, a comparatively old rookie of 27 who had fended off pucks in such minor-league outposts as Shawinigan, Winnipeg, Hull, Edmonton and Spokane. The Bruins were last in the six-team NHL the year he got there and they remained that way until 1966, when they skyrocketed to fifth.

But then the earth turned. In the autumn of 1966, the 18-year-old child prodigy from Parry Sound, Ont., Robert Gordon Orr, arrived from the Oshawa Generals, and a year later the explosive Phil Esposito was acquired by the Bruins in a trade with Chicago. This may have been one of the dumbest deals the Blackhawks ever made, for with the acquisition of Esposito and the emergence of Orr, Boston took off. Over the next eight seasons, the Bruins revolutionized the offensive side of hockey. Orr became the first defenceman to win the NHL scoring title, a player with sure instincts, instant acceleration, a quick, whistling slapshot and a driving spirit. Esposito became renowned as the game’s foremost garbage collector. He would park his elbows and knees and ample bulk in front of the net, use them to fend off worrisome defencemen and deftly steer deflections and reroute rebounds past goalkeepers.

The great one’s life


It took Wayne Gretzky just over a minute into last week’s National Hockey League all-star game at Edmonton’s Northlands Coliseum to demonstrate yet again how he came to be called The Great One. At the 1:07 mark, Gretzky–who was Edmonton’s most famous citizen until Oilers owner Peter Pocklington sold him to the Los Angeles Kings last August–set up former teammate Jari Kurri for a breakaway goal. Three minutes and 26 seconds later, Steve Duchesne of the Los Angeles Kings fed the puck to Gretzky, who scored. By the end of the evening, Gretzky had added another third-period assist to help the Clarence Campbell Conference team to a 9-5 victory over the Prince of Wales Conference. Playing for a team that included, in addition to Kurri, three other former Oilers teammates, Gretzky was named the game’s most valuable player and won a Chrysler Le Baron automobile–the 14th car he has won during his 10-year professional hockey career. In a typically generous gesture, Gretzky then announced that he planned to give the car to his friend and former Oilers teammate Dave Semenko.

It was a fairly typical night for the man whose name has become almost synonymous with hockeyexcellence. Despite the concentrated campaign being waged by the Pittsburgh Penguins‘ Mario Lemieux to usurp Gretzky’s crown, Number 99 remains for the moment hockey’s leading exemplar and the game’s foremost diplomat. “Mario Lemieux is having a great year,” said Gretzky in a reference to the Penguin centre’s 25-point lead over Gretzky about two-thirds of the way through the season. “It’s great for hockey that he won the scoring title last year. I won it seven times, and it’s great if I win it again. But if I lose, fine, it’s not the end of the world.”

Record: Indeed, while Lemieux chases after Gretzky’s records, Gretzky has set a goal of his own for this season–to tie Gordie Howe’s NHL lifetime record of 1,850 points. Said Gretzky, who had 1,786 points by the time last week’s all-star break took place: “I think I have still got a real good shot at it. That is about 2.5 points per game for the rest of the year. That is an average I am pretty much accustomed to maintaining.”

In Los Angeles, where Janet Jone’s $250,000 Rolls-Royce Corniche–a wedding gift from her husband last July–shares the long, winding driveway of a luxurious Encino Hills house with Gretzky’s Nissan 300 ZX convertible, Gretzky has settled into a life of sunsoaked celebrity. Two weeks ago–seven days after eclipsing the second-place career scoring record of Marcel Dionne–Gretzky appeared with his six-week-old daughter, Paulina, on CBS Television’s late-night Pat Sajak Show. After chatting with Sajak, an avid Kings fan, about fatherhood and his move to California, Gretzky launched a familiar attack on hockey violence. “In five to six years,” said Gretzky, “fighting will be totally eliminated from hockey.” Referring to tough new rules for high-sticking, cross-checking and other offences, he added, “Before the rules were changed, fighting was the way players had to protect themselves because the rules didn’t.”

Voluble: The publicity is part of Gretzky’s stated intention of increasing the understanding and appeal of hockey throughout North America. During road trips, Gretzky, once known for his shyness, has become voluble. In interviews, he tells reporters that new NHL franchises should be created in Seattle, Houston and Dallas, and he has criticized the league’s system for drafting young players. As well, he has expressed disappointment at the American media’s exaggerated depiction of hockey as a violent sport. But Gretzky’s most important single accomplishment during the past six months has probably been almost single-handedly turning hockey into a major spectator sport in the sophisticated Los Angeles market. In his six months with the Kings, Gretzky has begun to make the team worthy of its name, while he has emerged as a star in a city of stars.

Calgary power play: the Czechoslovak hockey star who stayed behind

Calgary power play

The Czechoslovak hockey star who stayed behind

The dream of a lucrative National Hockey League contract was once the preserve of young North Americans–but no longer. On Jan. 2, hours after his team won the three-nation, 25-team Mac’s Tournament for midget-hockey teams in Calgary, Czechoslovakia’s Petr Nedved, the top scorer of the event, claimed political asylum at a local RCMP station. “I want to remain. I ask that you not be disappointed in me,” the 17-year-old star centre told his distraught father, Jaraslov, a hockey coach in Czechoslovakia, in a statement relayed by the Calgary Herald. The six-foot, two-inch, 165-lb. Nedved remained sheltered by members of Calgary’s expatriate Czechoslovakian community who had assisted in his defection. But his power play touched off an international tussle between his parents and the Czechoslovakian Embassy in Ottawa on one side and Canadian immigration officials and talent-hungry North American hockey teams on the other.hockey_NHL


Nedved is not eligible to play for the NHL until he turns 18 this December. But, last week, no fewer than nine of the 14 teams in the junior Western Hockey League–which can take players aged 16 to 20 and regularly supplies players to the NHL–said that they wanted to sign Nedved. At the same time, though, Czechoslovakian officials and Nedved’s parents expressed dismay over the teenager’s actions. From his home in Liberec, 90 km northeast of Prague, Jaroslav Nedved issued an impassioned plea for his son to return home. And Czechoslovakian officials in Ottawa urged Nedved to reconsider his wish to stay in Canada. “Nedved breached his obligations to his team,” said Karel Zoubek, counsellor at the Czechoslovakian Embassy. “Certainly his team supporters are not happy. And we think his parents should have a say. He is a minor.”
