Take away the Bobby Hull-Norm Beaudin Chris Bordeleau unit and the jets would be just another club in- stead of running away with the World Hockey Association's western division championship, people said. But Sunday night" before fans, the other lines came to life and sparked the jets to a 5-2 victory over Minnesota Fighting Saints. The win gave Winnipeg a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven quar- ter-final with the series now Shifting to St. Paul for Games Tuesday and Wednesday. In the other western division series, Los Angeles Sharks beat Houston Aeros 4-2 Saturday in Houston to tie their series at 1- 1.

Kelley said in praising Ottawa's Giles Grat- tcn. ''It was superior and the kid's just out of junior Tanks in his first playoff." The Nationals got off to a rousirg start with goals by Brian Conacher and Gavin Kirk in the first period. Kirk's goal deflected into the net off the leg of New England defenceman Teddy Green.
