Dryden re- ceived a two-minute penalty as the overtime period start- ed. Buffalo Sabres staved off elimination with a 3-2 win. Montreal still leads the series 3-2. quarter-final, also 4-1, with a 6-1 win over St. Louis Blues Tues- day. The semi-final opens in Chicago Thursday. Rookie Steve Vickers, a three- goal man for the Rangers, said it was Boston's inability to in- timidate the underdog New Yorkers in the i'irst game of the series here that turned the round in their favor. "We just showed them from the opening game we weren't going to be said the 21-year-old winger, one of the leading candidates for the rcokie-of-the-year award. Bruce MacGregor, Walt Tkac- zuk and Rod Gilbert scored single goals for New York. Bobby Orr, Ken Hodge and Don Marcotte tallied for Boston. Brad Park, Rangers' per- ennial all-star defenceman, said that films of the Boston club re- viewed at Rangers' pre-series camp enabled New York to nul- lify Orr's contribution to Bos- ton's effort. "I'm not going to say what it Park said, "but it cer- tainly must have had something to do with our victory. "Remember, we've gotta face these guys next year." Orr scored his first point of Scrappy Sabres alive, Crozier upsets Bowman MONTREAL (CP) On Feb. 10, ccach Joe Croz'.er of Buffalo Sabres made a promise anc Tuesday night he kept it as the Sabres nipped Montreal Cana- diens 3-2 in overtime to force a sJxlh game in their Stanley Cup quarter-final series. Rene Robert's second goal of the game at of the first overtime period gave the Sa- bres their second win in the series which resumes Thursday in Buffalo. Robert also assisted on line- mate Rick Martin's goal while Frank Mahovlich and Guy Lap- ointe scored for Montreal. It was just before regulation ime ended that Crozier made his promise made after ;he Sabres' seeDnd visit to Mon- real during the regular Na- tional Hockey League season. On the night in February, Montreal coach Scotty Bowman called for the measurement of he goaltending stick used by Buffalo's Dave Dryden. The stick was found illegal by he referee and the Sabres were jiven a penalty late in the third >eriod and the Canadiens held n for a 2-1 win. After the game, Crozier, who ia3 made it plain ha is not one f Bowman's admirers, vowed ie would get revenge. With 29 seconds left in the bird period of Tuesday's game, e did. Crozier asked referee Jruce Hood to measure goaLe !en Dryden's pads. Following a measurement at the end of egulation time, the Montreal 'oalie's pads were found to be ver the 10-inch maximum ;idth. As a result, Montreal layed short-handed for the irst two minutes of the over- time. ALL SET UP "He had this all set Sa- res' backup goalie Dave Dryden cted. "He told me a couple of ago that Ken's pads were illegal. "I honestly didn't think he would pull that, bat he is a very horough cosch. There's nothing wrong with being thorough." Diyden said that Crozier sent him to the Sabres' dressing rcom to get a rule book and find the regulation pertaining to goalkeeper equipment. Not to be outdone, Bowman tried to get Hood to measure Sabres' goaltender Roger Cro- zier's pads as well. Soviets stretch Cup lead MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union stretched its first-place lead to three points in the world hockey tournament Tuesday as Vladimir Petrov's three goals led the undefeated Russians to a 9-1 win over Finland. It was the seventh straight win for the Russians hi She double round-robin competition, giving them 14 points. Sweden is next with 11 points after play- ing to a 3-3 tie with defending :hampion Czechoslovakia. The Czechs have nine points followed by Finland with six and West Germany with two. Poland is winless after seven games. The Russians, who have out- scored their opposition 70-12, got three goals in each period to defeat the Finns. The Finns scored their only goal in the second period when Veli-Pekka Ketola beat goalie Vladislav Tretyak. The Swedes earned their tie when Ulf Sterner, who couldn't make the grade with New York Rangers of the National Hockey League, scored on a power-play midway through the final pe- riod. Czechoslovakia, upset 2-0 by Sweden in a first-round gams, took a 1-0 lead in the 'irst period when Jiri Holik scored a power-play goal. Dan Soderstrom and Tord LiUndstrom scored the other Swedish goals. But Bowman made the re- quest during the btermissicn and was told he would have to wait until the end of the first overtime period to have the measurement carried out. Bowman said that Clarence Campbell, the National Hockey League's president over-ruled referee Hood and referee-in- chdef Scolty Morrision during the intermissicon before tha overtime and didn't al'ow the measurement to take place. When asked whv he waited until so late in the game to call for the measurement, Crozier snapped: "It was done then because we were going into overtime. It was an opportune time to do it." When confronted with Ms goaltender's admission that Crozier had known about the pads for some time, he said: "If Mr. Dryden made that comment, use has quote. I have nothing to say about it." "That game is over. We won the game in overtime on our own." ROBERT SCORES Indeed, the pad-measuring overshadowed Robert's fourth goal of the series at of the overtime. Robert took a lead pass from linemate Gilbert Per- reault and walked in alone, leaving defenceman Jacques Laperriere well behind. "I was in cold Rob- ert said. "Perreault gave me a good hard pass. Had it been a soft pa85. Laperriere would have caught me. "Gilbert tried to get the puck :o me just before, but Lap- erriere stopped him and Per- reault got the puck back. I just kept on moving. "I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do when I went in. But he (Dryden) moved on my side and gave me about two feet." It was Robert's fourth goal of :he series and "the most impor- tant" of his career. the series with his goal Tuesday night that tied the score 1-1 in the first period and then set up the Bruins' first power play put Bos- ton in front 2-1. Park said the New York team knew Boston "would throw ev- erything at us in the first 10 minutes, like they did out there tonight, and that all we had to do was hang in there." "We checked Orr real he said, adding that part of the program was designed to take the Boston defenceman's best line of attack away from him. "There were certain things they were doing we thought we could capitalize on." Asked how the Rangers could duplicate the Boston superstar in a workout, Park candidly ad- mitted he played the role. Asked if he scored any goals while playing the part, he re- plied: "No. They (team-mates) had me checked pretty good." Lceiog coach Bep Guidolin ac- knowledged the Rangers "were a better team." "They're a good club with a let of good young legs. We jus; don't have tbs team here that we had a year when the Bruins took six games to knock off the Rangers in the Stanley Cup final. "They simply outhustled us. But we gave it all we had." The rookie Boston coach, who took over midway in the sched- ule from Tom Johnson, had the club flying late in the season and beat the Rangers twice in the closing games to up second place in the East Divi- sion and home-ice advantage if the series against New York went the full seven games. KEPT SHOOTING Vickers, who scored on three of his five shots in the game, said it was the Rangers' strategy from the start to take as many shots as possible in all the games. 'We knew they were having rouble in goal, so we knew to >eat Boston we'd'have to shoot 35 to 40 shots a game." Dissent bad been rumored among the Bruin players since 44-year-old Jacques Plante was picked up in a late-season trade 'rcm Toronto Maple Leafs. Ed Johnston, a 12-year veteran wifh the club, played only seven periods of hockey in the final nonth with Plante and Hess Sroaks, a 35-year-old rookie, sharing the chores. Plante got shelled in the first two games by New York. John- stcn replaced him in ths next winning ore and looking impressive in both. Brooks started Tuesday's game but retired with a groin r.jury after the firsi period, Johnston moving in with the Hangers holding a 3-2 edge.
