OPEN A TOTAL OF lonlght, the second Sunday night in Toronto and the fidh Tuesday in Boston. Tlie Leafs now are riding what centre Jim Harrison calls "a great psj'chological uplift" and even if they can't win an- other game, they're sure to give Boston some trouhle. "Now it's a real tough series, real said Boston de- fenceman Dallas Smith after the Thursday loss. "A real tough series" for tlie Bnu'ns means (he prc-playoff picture that favored them to romp all the way to the Stanley Cup has changed. HANGEKS HAVE EDGE New York Rangers' apparent ease In handling Montreal Cana- diens also could affect the eventual outcome for the high- powered Bruins, East Division champions for a second year. The Canadians could rally but Rangers have the advantage of a 2-0 lead in their series going Into Montreal for the third and fourth games tonight and Sun- day. The powerful Bruins were fa- vored to have an easy time against the Leafs and again against the winner of the Minne- sota North Stars St. Louis Blues series in the West. The Bruins then were likely to Centennials manage 3-3 stalemate By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Battles were fierce but nobody won much in the quart- erfinals of the Western Canada Hockey League Friday night. Brandon Wheat Kings and Saskatoon Blades fought to a 3-3 tie In their series, sending the senior back to Saskatoon Sun- day night. The Blades, who lead the best-of-sevcn series 3-2, need only a tie at home to advance into the semi-final. The score was exactly the same Friday night in Calgary where the Centennials and Med- icine Hat Tigers settled for a 3-3 draw and a dead-lock of two wins the their series. They play again Sunday in Medicine Hat. The only game that ended de- cisively was in Rcgina where the Pats got a pair of goals late in the third period for an 8-6 win over Flin Flon Bombers. Flin Flon, nevertheless, has a 2-1 lead In games, with the fourth coming in Flin Flon Sunday night. have a rest before meeting a tired victor emerging from the semi-final between winners of the Montreal-New York and Chi- cago Black Penguins series. That projected road to the Stanley Cup has taken on added bumps with a rash of late-sea son injuries to Boston players although coach Tom Johnson said in Toronto Friday that most were healing satisfac- torily. The only doubtful starter for tonight, said Johnson, was centre Derek Sanderson, who has been spending nights in hos- j pital with an inflammation of the bowel. "Sandy's feeling under the said Johnson. The Leafs also have their In- jury problems although conch King Clancy refused to name his casualties. "We've got a couple of play- ers who are hurling, and I mean really said Clancy, "I don't want to say who they are but you can take my word for it." However, defenceman Brian Glennie, one of the toughest checkers for the Leafs in Uie se- ries, was believed to be nursing a groin injury, although he de- nied having a serious injury after limping from (he ice in Boston Thursday. Clancy had special praise for the work of Glennie and defence partner Jim McKenny for their improved play. "I was one that didn't know Glennie was that said Clancy. KING SMELLS ROSES "But he's improved 100 per cent. It just proves that if you give a guy a chance the kid will come up smelling roses." Glennie spent much of the season on the bench before win- ning a spot in the regular de- fence rotation after Mike Pelyk was sidelined by a knee injury and Jim Dnrey was traded to New York. Despite their two-game lead, the Rangers are not over-confi- dent going into Montreal. Ranger winger Rod Gilbert said Friday he figures the Cana- diens "will return lo normal at the Montreal Forum." He said he expected the Cana- dians to open up their attack on home ice. "In the last two matches, Montreal players have played much more this has made the difference. "I also noted that they ap- peared lo slow down after their second goal Thursday night." Both games tonight and Sun- day in Montreal and Toronto are scheduled lo start at 8 p.m EST.

"I wish we could have wrapped It up at home, but there's no go to Atlanta The Celtics took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Con- ference semi-final series with the Hawks, but had to hold off several spirited challenges by Atlanta. Boston built a 17-point lead, 25-8, in the first period, then had a major struggle until pull- ing away in the final quarter.

Kuberski, a forgotten forward during the regular season, wrecked the Hawks with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Finkel, forced into action after center Dave Cowcns picked up a fifth foul early in the third period, hit on three key set shots in the final quarter.

But their players and coaches remain optimistic despite the 2- 0 leads held by Chicago Black Hawks over Penguins and Min- nesota North Stars over the Blues in the best-of-seven se- ries. The Hawks visit Pittsburgh ant) the North Stars arc in St. Louis for Saturday and Sunday encounters, "I think we played a couple oE good said Penguins' Bobby Leiter. "Our guys aren't down and we know we can beat them.11 ''The home ice atid the crowd will Pittsburgh coach Red Kelly said, "We were within one goal Thursday and we could havn come nut a little better. Tliey didn't run us out of (he rink." The Penguins lost 3-2 Thurs- day, reflecting (he excellent goal-tending they're getting from Jim Rutherford. Minnesota needed overtime to get past the Blno.s on Thursday in a wild, loosely-played game. "We've always been able to bounce said St, Louis coach Al Arbour. FKLI) An interesting sidelight to the confrontation i n Pitts burgh's Civic Arena may be a renewal of the (cud between Hawks1 de- fenceman Keith Magnuson and Penguins' forward Eddie Shack. Shack received a major pen- alty in the first game after Magnuson suffered a 12-slitch cut on this forehead from Shack's stick. Chicago players spent eight minutes in the penalty box in the second game ns n result of altorcalions with Shack. Magnuson once dropped his gloves, indicating he wanted to fight, but Shack turned away. "Isn't that Shack said of Magnuson's move. "He drops his gl ovcs while I s til 1 have my stick in my "hands. Has he ever won a fight? I've never seen him win one. Has he ever tied a Hawks are still heavily fa- vored to win the series, and they'll likely be in a nasty mood, partly because of the fines imposed on the club and left-winger Dennis Hull after Hull was caught using a stick with illegal curvature. William (Dutch) Van Deelen, western supervisor of officials, called for a measurement with one minute remaining in the game Thursday and found Hull's stick to be three-eighths of an Such beyond the rules. Van Deelen told Hull the stick curvature he checked before and after the game were not the j same. I If the Blues are to "bounce back" as predicted by their coach, they'll have to solve the wizardry of Lome (Gump) Wor- sley's goal-tending in the North Slars' net. The 42-y e a r -o 1 d Gumper hasn't been beaten by the Blues in his last nine games, "We're going to have to learn how to get the puck past him. or we won't have much of a chance, that's for Arbour conceded. have Consolidated1 All cf Our telhbridge Operations to our DOWNTOWN LOCATION at: 334 4fh Street South On the Corner of 4th and 4lhl WE HAVE MOVED from our Courts Highway Location and ore NOT ASSOCIATED wJlh tho present operation there!
