"It'll te good lo gel a few days snid Boston defence- man Don Awrcy. "We've been hurling." The Rangers, meanwhile, saw their series lead over the C'ana- diens dwindle to 3-2 with Mont- real's 2-1 victory Tuesday thai came with a relurn to winning form of Canadiens goalie Ken Drydcn. The Blues watched Minnesota score two third-period goals for a 4-3 victory and a ,1-2 lend going inld the sixth game of that series set for St. LOUJS Thursday.

Actually, 29-year-old Tony from Sault Ste. Marie, On- lario has a lot lo say; the problem is finding the opportune time lo open up Esposilo for conversation. When Tony does lalk he turns into an interesting, if not flamboyant atlilclc. He also has become something of a controversial subject lately, jiow that rumors have circulated up and down ihe National .Hockey League dial Ihe Black Hawks may trade Tony for a first-line centre in lime for next season. This is surprising in view of Ksposito's astonishingly low goals against average. But Tony remain.? nonplused. "Kight he says, "my loyalty is with the Black Hawks because they're paying me, but I don't care where I go. It doesn't matter where. If I had a choice, of course, I'd want one of the five or six good teams in the League rather than a club that has 'ID or 51) shots thrown at il a game. No one could do a job in that kind of situation because a goalie really is only as good as the team in front of him." Although Tony is considered one of the best if not THE best- c.oallendcrs in the iVHL he often has been compelled to ride the bench because this season Chicago carried two other solid goalies, Gary Smith and Gerry Desjardins. Tony was not pleased with the arrangement; not a bit. "Having three goalies on a Esposilo explains, "is like having a double garage and owning three cars; you al- ways have to leave one outside. My leeling is that there's only room lor two goalies on a team. That's why I know lhat next year one of us won't be with the Black Hawks." Many observers arc unaware lhat Tony is one of Lhe rare left handed goaltenders in professional hockey. "Most shooters today are Esposilo says, "so they tend to shoot for the left side more than the right- Since the left side is my blockcr (thick mill) side il gives me an asset because I'm actually better with the blocker than my catching hand, which is my right hand." Tony is one of the few goaltenders in pro hockey who owns a college (Michigan Tech) diploma, "It gives me an he says, "because il I ever get so seriously injured that I can't play any more 1 could probably gel n job elsewhere and made a decent living. JJut I couldn't make nearly Ihe kind of money I do in the NHL. "I'd survive but it would be lough because I'm used to making a lot of money and it would be a difficult adjust- ment for me. Hockey is a lerrific education ilsclf; the travel- ling, seeing so many tilings and meeting a lot of people." Esposilo says he'd like to play 10 more years, which is quite possible these days with expansion creating a players' market. The invention of the goallcnder's mask also has made life a lot easier for people like Tony. It's a far cry from the clays when Chuck Hayner was tending goal for the New York Hangers in the late Forties. One day a reporter asked Itayner what he would do if his son ever decided lo become a goalie. Rayner replied thai he would remove the goalie's, slick from the lad's bands and hit him over Ihe head wilh it. field ami Johnny hail put Boston in Bruins goalit; Gerry Checvcrs, like Parent, phiyed a .strong game and .slopped Iho Leafs on several good scoring opportuni- ties late in lhc fame.

At Minneapolis, llie Blues got ;oals from Gany L'nger, Gary Sabourin and Phil Roberto in the first two periods for a 3-2 lead and threatened to lake Ihe lead in the series from the North Stars who won the first two games on home ice.
