Then Es- rasilo, the league's leading corcr, got those two quick ;oals and Don Marcotte, John iIcKenzie and SUnlield added ;oals in the final period.

He said Cheevers will tart again toiu'ghl. King Clancy, the 69-year-old coach of the Leafs, agreed with praise of Cheevers >ut gave credit to Esposilo for the victory.
