Goaltenders holding key, remaining series open BOSTON (CP) 'Joaltending may be a key tactor in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup quarter-final between Tr-rjnto Maple Leafs and Bos' ri Bruins. The first game tonight and the second Thursday both starting at 4 35 p.m. MST will be played in Boston Garden with the latter televised nationally in Canada Rent a 74 from Budget! 9 Budget Rant a Gar Daily (PLUS GAS) Rate Chevy Nova irnilar car The Leafs, who finished fourth in the East Division during the regular National Hockey League season, have the edge in goaltending with Doug Favell, likely to start in the first game, Eddie Johnston and Dune Wilson. Johnbton has been in 13 playoff with his former team, the allowed 37 goals for a 2.90 average. Favell, formerly with Phila- delphia Flyers, has appeared in 16 playoff games, allowing 50 goals for a 3.10 average. This is his first playoff series with the Leafs, as it is with Wilson, who has never been in a Stanley Cup game. GILBERT MOST LIKELY Gilles Gilbert, expected to get most of the work for the Bruins in the playoffs, and backup Ross Brooks, each has made one appearance in Stanley Cup competition. MONTREAL (CP) It has been 34 years since New York Rangers last won the Stanley Cup although they have been in the playoffs every year since 1966. As a result the Rangers have earned the reputation of being one of the most highly- paid group of "chokers" in professional hockey. They hope to shake that im- age in the quarter-finals against Montreal Canadiens which start tonight at the Forum. Emile Francis, general manager and coach of the Rangers, has said this is the year the Rangers must win. He has made few major changes since taking over as general manager before the 1967-68 season, so his team has been getting older and little has been added in the way of new talent. If the Rangers do not come through this year, there likely will be several changes made before the 1974-75 season. MADE FINAL ONCE In their last seven playoff appearances, the Rangers made it to the final only once, two years ago when they were beaten by Boston in a six- game series. Last season the Rangers up- set Boston in a five-game quarter-final but that win was tarnished somewhat because Phil Esposito, the Bruins' super centre, was injured in the first game and sidelined for the balance of the series. New York then was elimi- nated in the semi-finals by Chicago in five games. Two of the Black Hawk wins were on New York ice after the Rangers took the opening game of the series in Chicago. Herall Sports Longhorns most upset By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The executive of the Lethbridge Longhorns hockey club ot the Alberta Junior Hockey League have expressed disappointment in the City of Lethbridge. To say they are upset would bean understatement. Longhorns were dealt what they called a severe blow by the city when it was announced that Bill Burton, major shareholder in the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League, would be given priority for the new.Sportsplex. City council, in a closed meeting Monday, approved Burton's bid for a lease which would mean he is indeed serious about transferring his club to Lethbridge for the 1974-75 season. Longhorns, on the other hand, are not sure about next year's plans. They have a franchise in the AJHL but can they survive in competition with Tier I? Three of the five Longhorn owners, Herb Christie, Stan Maxwell and Dr. Tony Pomohac, stated their case Tuesday evening. Harry Cox and Gord Hoselton, the remaining owners, were unavailable. Christie was the spokesman for the trio and didn't, you might say, spare the rod. "We feel, after Monday, that the Longhorns have been sold down the river by City he said. "Unless more co-operation is forthcoming. Tier II. the Longhorn franchise is in jeopardy." The Longhorns played their first year in the AJHL last season and met with success, considering they were a first year club with a nucleau of local players, at least 60 per cent, as was pointed out Tuesday Council's decision could undo all of the efforts of the Longhorns the executive feels. Stated Christie, "Tier II is solely dependant on an outside interest as to its success in Lethbridge. Our own well-being is not our main concern, but that ot the local hockey player. Unless of course, any outside interest is prepared to pick up the slack." Christie, Maxwell and Pomohac were in full agreement when they questioned Monday's proceedings. The presentation to City Council, on Burton's behalf, they said, was presented by Bob Bartlett, Director of Community Services, which is contrary to what was previously stated. Said Maxwell, "Each interested party was to make their own presentation to council. Ours was made in public while the Swift Current bid was made behind closed doors by a local official Christie went on to say that the Longhorns lelt it was a violation of the resolution that was approved by council one year ago. "We are not opposed to Tier I hockey in added Pomohac. "However, we feel that had we had the support of City Council, we could have had Tier I hockey with a percentage of local ownership guaranteed, as well as a longtime support from minor hockey. For Tier I hockey to be a success in Lethbridge, local participation is a must." The Longhorns teel City Council listened with deai ears regarding the financial success of Tier I hockey as compared to 'Tier II with a majority of local involvement. City Council, they say, was influenced by a biased bombardment of certain sections of the news media. "For the past two years we, the Longhorns, have been in contact with WCHL officials as well as the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association with the idea of bringing both Tier I and Tier II hockey to said Christie. "Now, we're not sure what we'll do." "In closing, asked Maxwell, "is the Sportsplex committee so eager, and concerned about the dollar to sacrifice all other hockev in Eyes were sharp at recent shoot Ever try hitting a target 100 yards away with a 22 calibre rifle'' In a 20-mile an hour cross wind7 The first ever 22 calibre rim fire competition was staged recently by the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association.

He's in the Na- tional Hockey League now and Philadelphia Flyers are pleased. Kindrachuk, 23, known pri- marily for his checking ability and aggressive play, scored two goals Tuesday as the Flyers downed the visiting Atlanta Flames 4-1 in the opening game of their best-of- seven Quarter-final. The native of Nanton, Alta., came to the Flyers' training camp as a free agent in 1971 and, after a season with their Richmond farm team in the American Hockey League, made the parent club this year. "He has moves and tough- said Flyers' coach Fred Shero. "As long as he plays this well, no one is going to take his job Gary Dornhoefer gave the Flyers a 1-0 first-period lead, scoring a short-handed goal with four seconds remaining. Tom Bladon made it 2-0 with the only goal of the second pe- riod. Bob Murray managed to sandwich the Flames' goal in between Kindrachuk's two third-period markers. PASSED UP IN DRAFT Kindrachuk was passed up m the professional hockey draft but was scouted by the Flyers' Gerry Melnyk while playing junior hockey for Saskatoon Blades of the Western Canada Hockey League. After a year with San Diego of the Western Hockey League and the season at Richmond, the 175-pounder responded this year by scoring 11 goals and 30 assists while playing on the Flyers' so-called checking line with badmen Dave Schultz and Don Saleski. The Flyers' rise to division championship was accom- plished through aggressive forechecking and standout of which were in evidence Monday. "Our forechecking constantly created pressure on said Shero, adding his game plan had called for an attack on the Atlanta defence. "Even our defencemen Tennis club registrations The Lethbridge Tennis Club has set the dates for registration for membership fees concerning the 1974 season Registration will take place at the clubhouse at Henderson Lake, next Tuesday and Wednesday, April 16 and 17 between the hours of six and both evenings. Club officials encourage all new members to register on these dates. The importance of early registration will be the help it gives the lesson co- ordinator in determining lesson times and the number of instructors needed. It is also to the advantage of the new member to familiarize themselves with club officials and club operations Membership fees will remain unchanged from the 1973 season. Seniors, 18 and over will pay intermediates, 14-17 and juniors, 13 and under Gals clinic goes tonight The Lethbridge Women's Softball League will sponsor an umpires mini clinic this evening Larger clinics will be staged prior to the 1974 season, however, it was thought at this time a mini-clinic would help acquaint newcomers with procedures. Tonight's clinic is set for eight o'clock in the LCI conference room. All players, managers and coaches, along with anyone interested in umpiring this year, are asked to be in attendance.

Coach Bernie Geoffnon of the Flames refused to speak to reporters after the over an article in a Philadelphia newspaper Tuesday morning.
