Brash, loose, and hungry, they are the prod- uct of a skilfully-organized cam- paign to win the Stanley Cup. "It may not happen this year, but will win the Stanley savs Ed Snider, the ruddy-cheeked mod boss of the Flyers. Snider owns 60 per cent of the National Hockey League franchise. But Cup fever gripped Phila- delphia as never before Monday morning as thousands of fans fought for playoff tickets at the Spectrum, home of the Flyers. Dozens of police had trouble keeping order as remain- ing tickets were sold out in half an hour- The Flyers broke 35 club records while finishing second in the West Division of the Na- tional Hockev League and meet Minnesota North Stars in the first game of the quarter-final playoffs at home Wednesday night. The Flyers are one of the youngest teams in the NHL with six rookies in the lineup against the older and more ex- perienced North Stars. But both clubs have their hitters, al- though no one has been able to match the Flyers in penalties. EVEN WITH MONTREAL The Flyers average 24 years of age and won the season series from the North Stars 3-2 And Philadelphia is the only team in the league to hold the favored Montreal Canadiens even with a 2-2-1 mark "I've been blessed with a lot of good hockey teams, but this is the best team I've ever coached.'' coach Fred Shero of the Flyers. "The players not only fought for each other on the ice, but they stood up for each other off the ice. They'd even lie to pro- tect a team-mate. I like that. Everyone pulling for everyone else." The other three best-of-seven quarter-final playoffs series also open Wednesday night with Buffalo Sabres against the Ca- nadiens at Montreal, New York Rangers against the Bruins at Boston and St Louis at Chicago against the Black Hawks- Second' games in all series are at the same sites and third and fourth games are scheduled fo- Saturdav and Sunday at Minnesota, Buffalo, New York and St. Louis. WON'T CHANGE Shero says the Flyers won't change their big hitting game for the playoffs. In the regular season Philadelphia set an NHL record of minutes in pen- alties, an average of 22.4 min- utes a game. They were shorthanded 359 times and had 69 goals scored against them on the power play, tops in the league. But the Flyers also have the best power play going, having scored 74 times. got joung players, tough players and that's the I way we're going to play j says Bobby Clarke, runner-up in the NHL scoring race with 37 goals and 67 assists for 104 points. Clarke and Rick MacLeish are the first centres on the same team to score 100 points in a single season in NHL his- tory. MacLeish got his 50th goal and 100th point on the final night of the season Sunday, and owner Snider called It the ''most remarkable over-all per- i formance in NHL history." MacLeish wcs almost dropped from the team after he showed nothing early in the season. He had scored only ons goal for the Flyers in 17 games last season before going to the minors.

"Perhaps we wouldn't get as flustered as a young club. "But a lot of little edges you think you might have doesn't amount to much really." Team Canada stars one-two MONTREAL (CP) Two players who provided much of the centre ice strength for Team Canada in their historic series against the Soviet Union last fall, have finished one-two in the National Hockey League's individual scoring race. Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins captured the title with a 26-point edge over Bobby Clarice, the 23-year-old captain of Philadelphia Flyers. Esposito finished with 55 goals and 75 as- sists as he played in all of his club's 78 games while Clarke had 104 points on 37 goals and 67 assists. Esposito, who has won the NHL's scoring title the past three seasons and four of the last five, collects a total of as winner of the Art Ross Trophy and for leading the scoring in each half of the season. Clarke receives as over-all runner-up while the Bruins' Orr gets as runner- up to Esposito in the second half. Orr, the Bruins' offensive- minded defenceman, missed 15 games this year with an aching knee, but still managed a third- place finish scoring 101 points, one more than sophomore Rick MacLeish of Philadelphia. Orr had 29 goals and 72 assists while MacLeish, who had only 17 goals in his initial NHL cam- paign, had 50 goals and an equal number of assists. Detroit's Mickey Redmond finished with 52 goals, second only to Esposito, and with his output the Red Wings' right winger established an NHL record for most goals by a right winger in a season. The pre- vious mark of 50 was held jointly by Maurice Richard and Bernard Geoffrion, both former Canadiens. Ken Dryden of the Canadiens and Roy Edwards of Detroit led the goalkeepers with shutouts- six, while Dryden and team- mates Michel Plasse and VVayne Thomas combined to give Montreal the lowest goals against average to win the Ve- zina Trophy. The Canadiens' netminding trio allowed 184 goals for an average of 2.36.
