Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 9, 1973 Rangers up 3-1 i Bruins coach most upset NEW YORK (CP) Three or four Bruins may be drawing their paycheques elsewhere next year unless they've good reason to be turning in sub-par performances. Coach Bep Guidolin was per- plexed Sunday night after his Boston Bruins were blanked 4-0 by New York to give the Rangers a 3-1 stranglehold on their National Hockey League quarter-final. The best-of-seven series re- sumes Tuesday night at Boston, and there's every reason to be- lieve that three or four uniden- tified players will be wearing the black, white and gold of the defending Stanley Cup cham- pions for the last time. "You don't have to ask who they Guidolin said outside the hushed Bruin dressing room. "You can see for yourself who they are, even when we win." There are a few players on the team, Guidolin said, "not giving as much as they should." "When the season is over, we're gonna take a long look. These guys have the talent, so I don't know why they're not playing as well as they should." NAILS IN PLACE A combination of good fortune by the Rangers and bad bounces for Boston all but nailed the coffin shut, as Guid- olin described the Bruins' posi- tion after losing the first two games of the series at home. "Tonight they brought out the sharp he said Sunday, giving added stimulus to the feeling that the Boston club has faded as a contender. Rod Gilbert and Pete Stem- kowski moved the New Yorkers in front 2-0 in the first period and with veteran Ed Giacomin jamming the goalmouth shut on an assortment of Boston rushes, second-period scores by Bobby Rousseau and Steve Vickers were just so much additional padding. The Sunday contest was a contrast in style to New York's 4-2 loss here in the third game Saturday night when Boston rookie Greg Sheppard took ad- vantage of mental lapses to score twice. Goaltender Ed Johnston per- formed remarkably well in that game. Jacques Plante, obtained from Toronto Maple Leafs on March 3, appeared erratic in the two losses at Boston. The third goalie, Ross Brooks, was scheduled to start against New York Sunday night but re- mained in a back-up role after Johnston turned in a superb ef- fort Saturday. SHOWED NO WEAR Johnston couldn't be faulted on any of the Ranger goals Sun- day night. New York, with hustle and muscle to spare, hardly showed the wear of play- ing their fourth game in five nights. The Bruins played without centre Phil Esposito. operated on in Boston Saturday to repair a torn medial collateral liga- ment in his right knee suffered Thursday when checked by Ranger defenceman Ron Har- ris.
